Elizabeth Barrett Browning poem of love:

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

These famous poetic words excite me.  They make my heart race, my blood pound with the dreams of love stories filled with passion. I write these dreams down, to share with you, readers of my books.  I create characters who in my mind come alive fully on my pages.  

I am thrilled to know people enjoy my books.  I love to hear from readers too. Please drop me line or comment here on my blog.

From my writing experiences I have been blessed with friends, new business partners, and exciting ventures.  I have grown in my talents of communication and I am thankful for everyone, my fans, my publishers, my editors, and my fellow authors. 

Please check out my books at Siren Publishing, eTreasures, and Beachwalk Press.  Also, check out Crimson Frost and Midnight Frost Publishing.  My friend and co author Patricia Bates (Elise Whyles) on the Forsaken series would like you to take a look at our new venture. Crimson Frost publishes hot romances and Midnight Frost publishes nearly everything else worth reading... thrillers, mysteries, horror, young adult, family saga, paranormal, sci fi, children's books, and more.  There is world worth reading and we want to help offer it to you. 

In truth, I never dreamed that earning a Juris Doctorate and having years of practising law in and out of court rooms would lead to this.  But now, I have been published soon to be 8 times by outstanding publishers and my universe has changed. I am thrilled and excited to share the cummulation of my experiences through my own books and the promotion of other's stories. 
May happiness, love, romance and passion bless your Valentine's Day!
