About The Author

A little about me....

When I first moved to Sanibel Island in 2005 I thought for sure I'd be inspired to write, especially being surrounded by the beautiful beaches on the Gulf and feeling as though I were on a never ending vacation. However, it wasn't until I moved back to Massachusetts with my husband and two children, three years later, that I became inspired to write...about the beautiful beaches on the Gulf and feeling as though I were on a never ending vacation! A testimony to never knowing what you have until it's gone! Anyway, one freezing cold, New England night I began to write about Ali and Nicki and their summer adventures on Captiva Island (sister island to Sanibel). I had so much fun dreaming up characters that I'd actually want to be friends with and hang out with, that in fact the next time I visited Sanibel I was convinced I'd find them sitting down having frozen drinks at my favorite bar... I was real disappointed when they weren't there, lol. But I kept them in my mind and have now written a series that includes not only Ali and Nicki, but the lives of their family and friends as well.

My own family includes my incredible husband of eighteen years, my thirteen year old daughter and my eleven year old son, who are my whole world. (There's a pretty cute Golden Retriever in the mix too.) I am finally doing something in my life that I feel passionate about and I couldn't do it without the love and support of such a great family, so thanks guys!
