About Me

Romance with a Touch of History

After writing two critically acclaimed YA historical novels, my mission is to write adult historical romance that brings gay women from the sidelines of the history and adds their stories to the canvas of our past.

My interactive historical romances The Very Thought of You and It Don’t Mean a Thing, are out now on SilkWords.com. I am also the author of the novels Bowery Girl, a New York Public Library Best Reads for Teens; Cissy Funk, winner of the WILLA Literary Award for Best Young Adult Fiction.

In my current novel, Under the Pale Moon, a woman finds herself torn between her expected role as mother and wife in post-World War II America and an affair with a former lover, an Army combat nurse struggling with PTSD. Due out early 2015 – SUBSCRIBE to this site to get the latest news and early release info!

I’m a member of the Historical Novel SocietyWomen Writing the West and Romance Writers of America.

In addition to writing novels, I am a creative writing facilitator for PDX Writers in Portland, Oregon.
