Welcome to Passionate Reads & Reviews!

About Me…

Are you a passionate reader, author, blogger, or all of the above? So am I – let’s connect!


Hello and welcome to Passionate Reads & Reviews, a book blog and promotional service for both traditionally published and self-published authors. I specialize in book reviews and social media promotions, specifically for the romance genre – and all of its sub-genres. I am also a private publicist and editor for a small group of indie authors – and, hopefully, this time next year I will be a debut author as well.

Born and raised near the beaches of southeastern Virginia, I have called rural Mendocino County, CA home for the last 8 years.  I’m also a Registered Nurse and a freelance healthcare project consultant. When I’m not out and about you can usually find me at my laptop – writing, editing, reviewing or avidly promoting the books and authors I love.

I recently started my own novel-writing adventure and hope to publish my first dark but inspirational romance, Where Angels Sleep, book 1 of the Turning Points series, in early 2016. Stay tuned for updates as I navigate the world of self-publishing.

Thank you for visiting Passionate Reads & Reviews! Please come back again!

      Thank you so much. I’ve been literally crippled by fear, but am getting so much encouragement from RRBC members and some close friends that I’m pushing ahead, and hope to have it out before the holidays — the story starts and ends at Christmas.
