I am the author of nine historical romance novels from Dorchester Publishing. These were originally released in paperback from 1996-2006 and are now in reissue as e-books by Samhain Publishing. I did my own line editing and copy editing on all of these books, receiving assistance from the house editor only with some content editing.

I am often asked to judge fiction writing contests, both through the RWA and through science fiction conventions. I enjoy this very much and always give the contestants as much feedback as possible.
