Powerful women, powerful stories

I started writing romance when I was twelve. I fell in love with Princess Leia and I wanted to write a wedding story between her and Han Solo. It was all very dramatic and romantic.
Soon however I wanted to write my own heroines and tell their stories. Who are these women? My heroines are always strong, always ready for whatever adventure is thrown at them and they need a hero who is strong enough to keep up with them.
Sometimes they're in over their head - but doesn't that happen to all of us?
As for me most of my adventures happen only on the page, but my travels have taken me from Ireland to Paris and as far away as the Galapagos Islands! For the most part though, I'm at home in New Jersey with my three (yes I did say three) crazy cats.

‘Did you just call me old?’
'Yeah, old man. What are you gonna do about it?'
'I'm going to break your right arm.'
