About Charlotte

Well hello there Romance Lovers,

Like most writers I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t writing something. Growing up in New York City, the middle child of a large family, I’ve always been surrounded by tons of people—starting with my boisterous family.

But I’m the introvert of my big family and living amidst millions of people, I’m usually happiest hanging out on the sidelines, wondering about the different people I meet. What drives them? What do they want out of life? Happiness? Sure. But what constitutes happiness for that person? Love? Security? Power? Honor? Appreciation? Money? So many people. So many stories.

Navigating school and career, marriage and motherhood, for as long as I can remember, there was always one constant in any downtime I could find. Reading. My happy place has always been deep inside a book. I love stories of every kind, but whenever I want to escape a really bad day, I pick up a ROMANCE. Because there’s nothing more soothing than a happily ever after.

If you want to know the essence of my stories, here it is. My stories, whether set in NYC or anywhere else center on the idea of home. Home as more than a physical place. Home in another person.

As a reader— more than anything I want to sink into a well told story. I want to experience every emotion in the character’s world. I want a story that makes me forget I’m reading a book because the feelings the story evokes in me are so real. The long anticipated first kiss, the arrow of pain when the black moment of despair hits hard. I want all of it.

That’s what I strive to bring to my readers. An escape into the sweet and steamy adventure of falling in love. Is there anything better than a happy ending?

My heroes are invariably hot alphas with a gooey center they only reveal to their forever women. My heroines are strong and smart— sometimes bold, sometimes naive and always protective of their hearts until the right men enter their lives and try as they will, they just can’t resist falling.

I live with my suit and tie wearing corporate warrior on the lower west side of Manhattan with our last child, a black dog who thinks he’s a bear. When I’m not reading or writing, I’m dreaming of slow cooked BBQ, an icy drink and the beach.
