I like to call my workspace my “Creative Corner,” and that’s just what it is. I don’t have a window, as it’s just a space below the stairs, but I have other things that give me wonderful inspiration.
On my office walls are various items that are special to me, or that bring back memories. Photos from my 2009 trip to Ireland, a set of old iron sleigh bells that belonged to my grandfather, and pictures of my parents.
I also have a “friend” who shares my office. He’s a small stuffed leprechaun named Seamus O’Reagan. I bought him just before St. Patrick’s Day, 2005, and he’s been my lucky charm ever since.
About the Author:
My passion for reading made me long to write books like the ones I enjoyed, and I tried penning sequels to my favorite Nancy Drew mysteries. Later, fancying myself a female version of Andrew Lloyd Weber, I drafted a musical set in Paris during WWII.
A former journalist and lifelong Celtophile, I enjoyed a previous career as a reporter/editor for a small chain of community newspapers before returning to my first love, romantic fiction. My stories usually include an Irish setting, hero or heroine, and sometimes all three. I’m the author of The Claddagh Series, historical romances set in Ireland and beyond. The first three books in The Claddagh Series, In Sunshine or in Shadow, Coming Home, and Playing For Keeps, are all available from Highland Press. Deceptive Hearts, the first book in The Wild Geese Series and Book II, Keeper of the Light, have been released.
I am a member of the Romance Writers of America, Hearts Through History Romance Writers, and Celtic Hearts Romance Writers. A lifelong resident of Montreal, Canada, I still live there with my own Celtic hero and our two teenaged children.

She dreamed of a very different life

As Cathal’s memory slowly returns, both he and Laura must come to grips with his painful past…and fight for a future free of hatred and loss.
