From the time I was a young girl, I dreamed that someday I would write a book. While pursuing my English degree, I fell in love with romance novels. There were several starts and stops along my life’s journey, but no matter what else happened, I never got away from a voice telling me, “someday”. Eventually, I had a sparkling “aha” moment that the book wasn’t going to suddenly spring forth fully written from my brain and I knew that I didn’t want to reach the end of my life, look back and say, “I could have written a book someday.”
After some failed attempts and several learning experiences, I wrote a book that combined my love of romance novels and my love of dolphins. That book was All Keyed Up, my debut release, originally published by Medallion Press. My second book, Key of Sea, returned readers to the fabulous Florida Keys and some of the characters they fell in love with from the first novel. I’m thrilled to now make both of my books available for e-readers.
I’m hard at work on more stories, inspired by the beauty, fun, and interesting people I encounter here at home in the Florida Keys. I look forward to sharing them with all of you.

At home in the Florida Keys on medical leave, undercover agent Jack Benton is on a mission to save his beloved aunt’s failing dolphin facility. He’s positive he can close a seven-figure land development deal, until his sassy Aunt Ruby accepts the proposal of world-renowned marine mammal scientist Dr. Vic Sheffield.
Successful Keys fishing guide Bobby Daulton has the life he always intended, with one notable exception. He never caught Dora Lee, the love of his youth. After all these years, he never expected her to blow back into his world with tornado force, but he’s a far cry from the kid who once let her slip the line and escape.
