I write because I am. There are always stories swirling in my head, characters talking. And I like a good, old-fashioned love story, with a strong, independent heroine, and an equally strong, opinionated hero. They may not realize when they meet that their instant chemistry signals anything more than lust. But eventually they have to face the fact that need, want, and love have combined to give them a happily-ever-after; but they both have to want it.
