Welcome to my website

I’m an Ohio-born author who made the leap a few years ago to move to southern France, which is where my heart settled many years ago. I look out my window at the foothills of the Pyrenees and know that the Mediterranean is close enough for a morning outing. I hope you’ll take a look at my women’s fiction novels, many of them set in France, and enjoy an escape from everyday life. The main characters deal with their own flaws, which usually involve running away, and learn how to use their newfound strength to create the lives they have dreamed about.

Review for Paris Runaway

“Loved this fast, absorbing tale of a mother tracking her runaway daughter through the romantic cities of Paris and Marseille.” – KSR Burns, author of The Paris Effect

Coming Soon:

Falling for Provence– a sequel to The Summer of France.

Running a French B&B isn’t all wine and smelly cheese, Fia  Jennings discovers as she tries to create a new life for herself and a smooth path for her teenage twins, while not—absolutely not – falling into a new romance. But she didn’t anticipate a handsome stranger showing up on her doorstep and sucking her into an art caper with dangerous overtones.
