I love to write about rediscovery and reinvention.
About women who are bravely carving out their niche and hoping not to be judged.
And I write to celebrate that later phase in womanhood, where our voices grow stronger. If only we had the courage to stand up and be heard.
So, I raise my glass to all the flawed and fabulous women over forty — my books are for you.
May your heart be kind, your mind fierce, and your spirit brave.
My Contemporary Romance Heroines
My romantic heroines always need to find themselves.
They're either leaving a marriage, are divorced, widowed, have children, or even grandchildren. (Let's say they've lived. Haven't we all!)
Their bodies may have seen more fabulous days, but they still have a sense of style. Although you're more likely to find them in jeans than a seductive dress. (And don't even try and coax them into a bikini!) Because life's just too short.
They are the epitome of a tested resilience. Somewhere within, they have the creativity and courage to embrace this new stage of their lives; they just have to find it.
Through my novels, they begin to focus on their inner selves, on who they were meant to be, and their new purpose in life.
And though these spirited romantic heroines strive for independence, they still hope to find someone to share their lives with.
I believe we all deserve that.
My Contemporary Romance Heroes
My romantic heroes are also older — but still sexy, you'll be relieved to know!
How about a tease of High Jackman, Gerald Butler, Matthew McConaughey (did you see him in The Gentleman!!), Bradley Cooper ...
The list is endless — feel free to contribute suggestions!
Of course, they have their wounds too; but are often too stubborn to reveal them without a push.
