Love, mystery & a ghost or two!

I work as a travel writer by day so naturally, I visit some incredible places. Add to the mix that I'm from New Orleans and you know I have great fodder for stories. 


My Cajun Series of historical romances tell the stories of an Acadian (Cajun) family torn from their home in Nova Scotia and starting over in the wilds of Louisiana.


The Cajun Embassy of contemporary romances follows a group of coeds who meet at journalism school and become friends over a pot of gumbo (recipes included!).

I was honored to have been a recipient of the 2018 ArtSpark grant provided by the Acadiana Center for the Arts and the Lafayette Economic Development Authority.
It enabled me to hire the amazing
