What was something you loved doing in recent times?

I was diagnosed with cancer in November 2018. Since then, I've undergone extensive treatment, including surgery which has left me with a weakness in my left arm. I'm keen to take care of my overall health and also to build up the strength in that arm. With those things in mind, I've found a new love of swimming. I try to swim most days now, and I particularly love swimming outdoors...although living in England means I have to be very brave if I want to do that at this time of year!

What are the most important magazines for writers to subscribe to?

I don't subscribe to any magazines, but I am a member of the Romance Writers of America and The Romantic Novelists Association, both of which provide invaluable support for writers. 

What’s your favorite under-appreciated novel?

Venetia, by Georgette Heyer. It makes me laugh and cry and the dialogue between the hero and heroine is incredibly well-crafted. Actually, anything by Georgette Heyer. I return to her books and reread them over and over.

Family Under Fire is part of the Harlequin's Colton 911. It is set in the fictional Arizona town of Cactus Creek. It's Christmas time and FBI agent, Everett Colton is back in his home town to investigate a murder. He's feeling less than festive and his mood is lowered even further when he comes face-to-face with the woman who dumped him four years earlier. But when the reason for their reunion becomes clear, he finds himself with a new family...and a dangerous stalker. 

Colton 911: Family Under Fire

An unexpected family

A once-in-a-lifetime reunion in danger…

After a bitter breakup, FBI agent Everett Colton never expected to see his ex-girlfriend, Alyssa Bartholomew, again. Suddenly, tragedy reunites them—and makes them guardians of an orphaned baby girl. Everett suspects that her parents’ deaths were anything but innocent. When his instinct for danger proves correct, it’s his job to protect the child he’s grown to love…and the woman he never forgot.
