Hi there, and welcome to my little corner of the internet!
I'm Valerie, but call me Val. I live in the Washington DC area and write contemporary romance novels. I've been writing for years, but only started publishing recently. My first book, Full Steam Ahead, is set on a cruise ship, and I researched like crazy about what it's like to work on cruise ships so that I could set the follow-up companion book With Every Breath (a stand alone romance featuring one of the side characters in Full Steam Ahead) there too. More books are planned in the Sea Swept series, so if you want to keep up with the latest releases, become a Val VIP and sign up for my newsletter!
As for my writing, I have a soft spot for sexy banter and guys whose hearts are in the right place, even if their heads sometimes aren't. I love discovering strong, awesome characters, putting them in entertaining situations, and watching them argue their way to love.
Another thing I adore: travel! I'm always plotting my next trip, and visiting new places in books in the meantime. These novels are a way to combine my love of travel and romance. I hope you find them as much fun to read as I do to write :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! I love hearing from fans and fellow readers/writers/travelers, so feel free to drop me a line through the contact links below.
