When I first heard the story of how my grandparents ran away in the middle of the night to elope, I was fascinated. They followed their hearts and found a love that most people only dream about. Years later, my grandfather loved my grandmother enough to stand by her side through immense heartache and suffering with their special bond somehow still intact.

Amazing stories like theirs have always inspired me to believe to in love. As a young girl, I kept a notebook that I called “The Book of Love.” On those tattered pages, I copied stories and poems and vignettes that helped me hold onto the hope that love could change things, that love could make life’s heartaches and disappointments bearable. Since then, I’ve seen true love change people and circumstances and hearts and lives. That’s the kind of love my stories explore. I use my experience as a mountain guide to write stories that incorporate adventure with romance. By trade I’m a writer, but I’m also a wife, a mother, a dreamer, a believer, a storyteller and an explorer.
