Contemporary Romance

I consider what I write to be romance fusion. Whether it’s the addition of suspense, a plotline with a thrilling twist, or mystery just waiting to unravel, I refuse to limit my storytelling to one specific genre. Although everything I write has a strong romantic element, I’d like to think my novels offer a little something for everyone.

Creativity can’t be put into a box or bound by rules. My writing philosophy is that I’m committed to character led storytelling. I go into every book with a limited outline and allow my characters to take me on a journey, giving them free rein to take the story where it’s meant to go. Oftentimes I don’t know how the story will end until I’m writing it. I believe this brings the characters to life in a way that sticks with the reader long after they’ve finished the book.

True North

Release Date: 08.08.22

The North name is a heavy burden. Two things I learned young—the best way to keep my head on is to keep my head down, and… never fall in love.

But I’m a sucker for a damsel in distress.

Lillian came into my life swinging. Mistaking me for my abusive twin brother, she greets me with a swift kick to the balls and a busted lip. Then she really shakes up my world.

She needs her job, but she needs a break just as much. And nothing silences my demons as efficiently as playing the hero.

To protect her from my jerk twin—her boss—I take her on a business trip and quickly learn that she’s different. Blunt. Honest. Intriguingly strange. I’m transfixed, so when she unknowingly sinks a multimillion-dollar deal, I don’t speak up. Something my family won’t forgive.

Now, I have a choice to make. I can go against my own blood and burn the North legacy to the ground, or play it safe, commit to my self-imposed rules and predestined future. Choosing her would ruin my life as I know it, but I’m starting to wonder if a life without her is worth living.
