Prior to my romance writing career, I worked in theater. Largely professional regional theater in Wisconsin. It was there I got a taste for storytelling.
I was a dancer…

Just of few of the plays in which I had the privilege of sharing the stage.
a theater producer…

an improv actor…

and performance artist…

Notice I didn’t add singer to the list?
Yes, I sang on stage from time to time, but it’s not something I put on my resume.
I worked in the theater in various capacities for about 35 years,
20 of which I was co-founder and co-artistic director…
With my Co-Founders and Co-Artistic Directors.

Declan Sinclair is a Highlander who believes his dreams never lie. When he spots Caya at a public house, he knows instantly she is the woman in his dreams—his future wife. Though her brother had promised never to gamble again, he engages Declan in a card game—and the prize is the lovely Caya.
Caya Pendarvis has no time for childish things like dreams or fairy-‐‑tales or love. She’s the sacrificial lamb on her way to the far north of Scotland to wed a wealthy merchant in exchange for settling her brother’s gambling debts.
Winning at cards is one of the many things Declan Sinclair does well. Unfortunately, the ability to court a woman—a talent he lacks—is the only skill he desperately needs to win Caya’s heart.
