1. I hear you have pets and animals in your books. Tell us about the books.
My books are sweet, clean and wholesome small-town romance. I favor a lot of tropes, but my main go-to is second chance or single parent. In Choosing Chelsea, Book 12 in the Gold Coast Retrievers series from Sweet Promise Press, I focused solely on including an adorable Golden Retriever, Ollie, and his horse-loving owner, Chelsea. Of course, the story centers around a single father and his little girl, Lily. This story was one of my favorites to write and has several aww factors.
In another series of mine – the Maple Glen Romance Series – I have two books that have animals in them. It Takes Two focuses on a dog walker meeting a butcher at the local meat locker and deli (a meet cute any dog lover will enjoy!).
The other book, Room for Two, involves a Bed & Breakfast, two geese, and a large black lab who lacks obedience and discipline. Needless to say, readers find humor in this series along with an aww factor!

2. Why did you add dogs to your books?
I love dogs! Honestly, I love ALL animals, but since I can’t have a panda or an elephant, I’ll love on my two dogs, Emmie Mae and Avery. Emmie is a pudgy black lab who loves food! LOL Avery is a Pit/Lab that I adopted from a local rescue. He’s a mama’s boy and loves to cuddle!
3. What other books have you written?
I have over 20 books published on Amazon, with another releasing December 25th with Sweet Promise Press. This book will be titled No Time for Mistletoes and will focus heavily on the “fake relationship” trope as well as a second chance. I don’t have a cover or buy links just yet, but will soon!
