The Nirvana Hotel’s Recreational Director, Christy Graham, possesses the perfect qualities for her job, she is outgoing, spirited, vivacious. Unfortunately, she is exactly the type of woman who terrifies the brilliant, but socially challenged, Internet market researcher Edward Shillington. Equal parts favor to their mothers and professional challenge, she agrees to help an unknowing Edward find love (or at least a date) while on his three week vacation. Fed up with men who assume pretty blondes are dumb and ditzy, she braces for the inevitable stereotyping. While coaching him to change his geeky ways, she’s as blind-sided by his chivalrous charm as he is by her intuitive knowledge of the human spirit.

Write…… you get where I’m going with this
First off, I’m a mother of two teenage kids, a wife, and a sister to six. Next, I’m a romance novelist. Initially, I wrote for outdoor themed magazine. I hunt and fish alongside my husband, so I had a somewhat unique persepective to bring to the table.
When I decided to give romance writing a try, I made the brilliant decision to join the Ottawa Romance Writers Association. It was through this group that I learned the ropes of the biz.
Initially I was published by a traditional print publisher. Now I am traditionally print, digital and self-published.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve always written, but it was a chance encounter with a group of romance writers that got me thinking about writing romance novels. But in particular, when reading romance, I wished I could find a book set in Ontario with a Canadian heroine. While writing, I found I loved being able to share a little bit of “my world” with others.
