Award Winning Author of twenty-five novels ranging from contemporary to romantic suspense and women's fiction.  My most recent book, SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER, is the first book in the Angel's Bay Series, and will be released on June 30, 2009. 



A long-ago shipwreck off the California coast led the survivors to the haven they named Angel's Bay. Their  shared adversity brought fellowship and joy ... but also unsuspected secrets...

The theft of three priceless paintings sent Derek Kane to prison and destroyed the dreams of his wife,  Brianna. When Derek unexpectedly dies just weeks before his release, Brianna returns to Angel's Bay with her young son, determined to prove her husband's innocence and find the missing paintings.  Her efforts are stymied by Jason Marlow, the police officer who sent Derek to jail -- betraying his former friend. And when unexpected passion flares between Brianna and Jason, she must choose between the past and the present, the guilty and the innocent, the truth and the lies.  For nothing is what it seems ...
