I am a contributor at USA Today’s Happy Ever After blog, and a reviewer at All About Romance and Harlequin Junkie. I post book recommendations here and anything else that strikes my fancy. 


I am a Texas girl married to a California boy who now lives on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula with said husband and our teenage son. I used to be an accountant, but you never really stop being an accountant, because someone always needs one. I volunteer and teach spinning when I am not reading, wife-ing and mothering.
