I write stories that I like to read. Alpha males with heart. Men who know what they want and don’t mind going after it. Strong, independent women. Women who aren’t going to fall at a man’s feet just because he crooks his finger at them. Great secondary characters. Sweet romance and hot sex. Emma, Carol and Laura have careers; Jake and Tom are detectives and Rob is a fireman.
The Fairfield Series is the first series that I wrote. I had once read a story about a group of couples getting together in a bar and I had an idea of what a blind-date gone poorly would be like in that situation. From that seed, Emm’a Home was born. I had no idea if anyone would buy it, read it, or even like it! I am proud to say that Emma’s Home made Amazon Best Seller list (2 times) in 3 different categories. By the time I finished writing Emma’s Home, I knew that the two other couples in the book needed to have their stories told also. Therefore, Laurie’s Time and Carol’s Image were written next. In order to write their beginnings, I had to “go back in time”.
The books are stand-alone novels, can be read in any order, each with its own Happily Ever After.

So many readers wanted Brock and Jean’s story from Laurie’s Time, I decided to write a novella just for them!
Brock Sinclair retired from the military living a solitary life, moved to Fairfield looking for his estranged daughter. It was an uphill battle since his daughter had never been told about her father.
Jean Roberts was a widow not looking for another love, satisfied in her career and good friends.
When they meet, neither can resist the sparks between them. When an arsonist threatens the town and Jean, Brock will fight to save her. Along the way, both discover that love the second time around is just as sweet.
This novella contains the characters that the reader will find in the rest of the Fairfield Series books. It was written to continue the tale of two of the secondary characters that many reader begged for their story to be told.
