What inspired you to choose your setting? The garden isle of Kauai, in Hawaii, was chosen for Ed and DeAnna’s tropical tryst in A Major Affair because the breathtakingly beautiful island offers such a wide variety of natural landmarks. I’ve vacationed in Hawaii several times and Kauai is by far my favorite locale.

Blurb for Finding Cory
Olivia Stratton had it all; a high-powered job in New York, a perfect boyfriend, a perfect life... until it all came crashing down her ears. Being offered the opportunity to live on a beautiful tropical island resort for a year as their marketing manager is her chance to start afresh, where nobody knows about her past. Romantic entanglements are definitely something she plans to avoid, but when she meets Cory, the resort's too-handsome-to-be-real entertainment coordinator, sparks fly and Olivia finds herself swept right out of her Jimmy Choos and into Cory's arms.

What inspired you to choose your setting? I wanted a setting that was not only tropical but also mysterious. Jamaica has many hidden elements, and I was interested in learning more about it. I enjoy writing about unfamiliar places because it makes the story more exciting for me if I’m learning as I go along. Since Jamaica has this thrilling aura about it, I knew it would be a great setting for a steamy romantic suspense.
