Happy Reading!

As I sit by, I draw inspiration for my small-town contemporary beach books from the sunny  shores of Southern California. The Summer Beach story expanded from an original trilogy to three series with 19 titles. I’m so grateful this series has captured the hearts of many readers.

When you escape with a cup of tea or a glass of wine and open one of my books, I hope the story will transport you to another world, where characters evolve into cherished friends, and their stories leave you cheering them on.
