What inspires you to write? 


I’d like to say that the view from my office inspires me, but it’s often a distraction! (See photo attached)


I always enjoyed reading romance and I always knew I wanted to write it. I guess I’m inspired by love? And I love being able to create a happy ending. I think that’s the one thing that drives me. The hopefulness of romance. I like writing about people who are hurting and heal and make a better life for themselves. I find that reassuring and joyful.



What genres do you write?


I like to say I write anything so long as it’s romance.


I mostly write Harlequin Presents. I just turned in what will be my 60th!  I’ve also written a lot of small town contemporary for Tule Publishing. If you explore my backlist, you’ll also find romcom, erotic and historical romance.


The only reason I haven’t branched into alien or creature romance is time! Lol.





Share a little about your writing process.


I do my best writing in the mornings and I write most days. I’ll go all day if my word count needs it. I think of my process as two-steps forward, one back. I push forward for a few days, get stuck, go back to the beginning and comb out the tangles. Then I push forward a little more.


I’m not one of these writers who needs to get it all down. I need time to think along the way so it works for me to work in waves.



Tell us about your book...


I love a secret baby story, but I thought “What if this is a super-secret baby?”


Molly is a surrogate and has signed an NDA not to reveal her pregnancy. But she gets the promotion of a lifetime and her boss, Gio, suddenly needs her when his grandfather takes ill.


Gio can’t understand why Molly is hesitating to take the promotion, but when he realizes she’s pregnant, he sees a way to make his grandfather’s last days happy ones—they’ll pretend they’re engaged!


Except, what happens when his grandfather recovers and thinks a wedding is on the horizon?


I hope you adore this story as much as I do!

The Italian boss’s proposal…
The secretary’s secret!

Faced with a hostile takeover, tycoon Gio must strengthen his claim on the Casella family company with a fake engagement. He’ll never commit to a real one again. Despite his forbidden attraction, his dedicated PA, Molly, is ideal to play his adoring fiancée. The only problem? Molly is pregnant!

Secretly carrying a surrogate baby, Molly can’t reveal the truth of her pregnancy. But knowing Gio’s protecting his legacy, she agrees to the ruse 
temporarily. Until pretend passion becomes red-hot reality! Will innocent Molly walk away from Gio unscathed or forever burned by his irresistible touch…?
