From the moment he saw Jennifer Roberts, his instinct was to protect her. But she wanted nothing to do with him. In fact, the last thing Jennifer wanted to do that Saturday afternoon was call the police. She didn’t trust them. She’d fallen hard for a cop – the exact person every child is told […]
I’m a Pittsburgh native and a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh with a bachelor’s degree in English. I try to work Pittsburgh connections into my stories. I’m an avid sports fan so my characters often wear black and gold or reference the city’s sports teams — The Penguins, Steelers and Pirates.
I’m a lifelong journalist and I’ve earned numerous writing awards. My writing career has taken me into the sports arena, politics, feature writing, editorial writing, and, my favorite, cops and courts. I’ve chased fire trucks and police cars, covered all sorts of crimes, including murders, and reported criminal, civil, high profile and ordinary trials.
Many of the ideas for my books come from real cases. Plus, I’m married to a retired FBI agent whose career fuels my ideas and whose technical advice is invaluable. He also takes credit for the steamy scenes!
