About Me

Serena b&w closeupHi—I’m so glad you found my books!

I write feel-good contemporary fiction, set all over the world. Readers have described my books as engaging page-turners, with sigh-worthy happy endings that’ll leave you smiling. That’s what I’m aiming for!

My own story? I’ve lived in thirty-nine houses, in seven cities, in four countries. I’ve been a riding instructor, edited a medical journal, worked at a London law firm, and taught English as a second language to wayward teenagers. And now I’ve found my own happy ending—living near the beach in beautiful New Zealand with my family, writing the kind of romantic, feel-good books I love to read. I hope you’ll love them too!
