In need of a creative outlet, I began writing novels after my second child was born. A voracious reader of romance books and a constant dreamer of romantic plots, my husband encouraged me to put my ideas to paper. I soon found out I loved it ... all of it!
I am a member of the Romance Writers of America and of the Georgia Romance Writers.
In addition to writing historical and regency romance novels, I also build large-scale HO model trains, love to do huge cross-stitching pieces, relax on our boat, and decorate everything I can during the Christmas season.
Besides romance, I am a heavy science fiction reader and try to read at least two books a month—one science fiction and the other romance even when I am writing. I guess I just secretly desire to live in another place in time!
I really am a Sinclair!! Which during my last visit to the Highlands I learned I was mispronouncing (sink’ clare). As a consultant for 18 years, I have been an editor, have written numerous documents, and received various awards within my firm. I live in Atlanta, Georgia with my three favorite loves—my ever-loving and supportive husband and my two children.

The Highlander’s Promise, won second place in PASIC 2008 Book of Your Heart Contest
An unwanted rescue…
Ellenor Howell’s perfect world unraveled in one terrifying night and she vows to piece together a new future, one that is safe and far from the reach of any man. Attempts to marry her off have failed and she is weeks away from fleeing England and her nightmares, when a hulking giant arrives, determined to take her to his brother’s home. With each ploy she devises to escape her captor, the infuriating Highlander is one step ahead, and her desire to leave the safety of his arms wanes. For inexplicably, whenever the man is around, her fear of being touched disappears and she remembers what is like to be wild and carefree. She wants her freedom, but with each minute that passes in the scowling Highlander’s presence, Ellenor begins to realize that what she really wants is the one thing she can’t have…his heart.
Bound to a promise…
Cole has good reason to despise Ellenor Howell. She is not only English and someone he is honor bound to hate, but she is proud of it. She is also aggravating, stubborn, and enjoys challenging everything he says or does. It should have made it simple for him to stay away. Instead, he finds himself drawn to her, as she continually understands him in ways no one else does. But as he helps free her from the memories of her past, his desire for the tawny-haired beauty grows, and he rediscovers pieces of his soul he thought forever dead. As their time together draws to an end, he must make a choice…forsake a solemn promise he made long ago committing him to a solitary life, or make a new one to his sworn enemy who has the power to open his heart and heal his wounds with love.
