Destination Romance: Romantic, Suspense Adventures; Contemporary Romance; Historic Fiction; a travel writer of exotic locations around the world; and a NYS local historian.
Welcome to my Home Page.
Gary and I celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary December 2016. It's been a wild ride and we're still a team as we work together on all our many family and community projects.
So come join us as we travel the globe and set off on one great adventure after another.
Thanks to my travels, I am a travel writer of exotic locations for top cruise magazines and deluxe in-cabin books. I am an author of Destination Romance: Romantic, Suspense Adventures, but I also write Contemporary Romance and Historic U.S. Fiction. As a NYS local historian I've written several local history books, as well. Check out the list on the left to find out more about my books.
As a romance writer I love to share my travel adventures, not only with you, the reader, but with my characters in my novels--the trouble they get into in these "fast-paced" novels with "fascinating locations" while they find themselves falling in love--think Indiana Jones meets Romancing the Stone!
As a travel writer, I never go into a country with preconceived notions of what to expect, even though I read up on the area long before we leave home. We are pleasantly surprised at the fascinating world around us.
This year we plan to go back to Germany, where our married life began all those years ago, stopping at all our old hangouts along the Rhine and Mosel Rivers, with a stop for the day at our 'old home town' Bitburg.
What an opportunity.
As the historian for my hometown, l enjoy researching and especially writing about my findings. Writing local history books isn't as easy as it seems, but it is just as rewarding as my other writing projects. And, it crosses over into my novel writing as well. For example, Ribbons of Steel, a fictional historical family saga based on the great railroad strike of 1877, was released in October, 2013, in digital and book in print, and contains local history.
Although traveling, writing, and researching keeps me busy, I tend to be an organized person and can work around almost anything that's thrown my way. Which allows me to enjoy family, who just happens to live close by. It also allows me to belong to several clubs and organizations in the community, and to meet and enjoy the company of friends and neighbors.
Please take a moment to wander around my website to find out more about my travels, novels, and history books.
