ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Storyteller at Heart
I’ve always been passionate about storytelling. I remember writing short stories as a child, and later, longer novels when I was a teenager. My girlfriends were my devoted readers and best critics.
I enjoy most genres, but I have a preference for romance and mystery. So many authors have inspired me and continue to influence my writing.
In my stories, I am most interested in character development. I am especially passionate about my female characters, how they see the world and themselves in it, and how they come to evolve into strong heroines.
TO SAVE AND PROTECT
To Save and Protect is my own variation of Pride and Prejudice, in which Elizabeth and Darcy find themselves in danger. And Elizabeth sees, for the first time, who Mr. Darcy really is. It is a rather long novel and is the first of three books in a series. I have introduced a few new characters of my own in this variation and the story takes a completely different route than the original novel.
To Save and Protect is now available on Amazon.

TO LOVE AND CHERISH
2nd book in the series
Georgiana Darcy is about to make her debut into London society. She has grown into a sensible, intelligent young lady, who has inherited her mother’s beauty and her father’s character. However, she is still haunted by the shadows of Ramsgate and George Wickham’s treachery and she worries how she can ever cull the swains, fops, and fortune hunters once she enters the marriage mart.
The Marquess of Dartfort, a renowned rake, has decided to marry to beget his own heir, rather than leave everything to his unworthy, shiftless cousin. But when he travels to Pemberley and sees his friend’s younger sister again, he discovers that the attraction he felt toward her two years ago run deeper than he imagined.
After Lord Paisley creates a stir at Georgiana’s ball, all the gossips cannot but speculate how the sweet debutante enchanted the marquess. Jealousy, money, and power all come into play when His Lordship’s heir learns his inheritance is at risk, past loves desire to rekindle relationships, and old foes return to Town. Georgiana finds herself not only the object of more than one gentlemen’s affections but also a sinister plot—and Lord Paisley and Darcy must conspire to keep her safe and bring justice to those that threaten their happiness. Can their love withstand so many trials? And what will Mr. Darcy do once he learns this confirmed bachelor has fallen for his beloved sister?
