Portia has been held spellbound with romantic tales since she first pretended to be Cinderella and fell in love with Prince Charming. As a teenager her love of romantic tales grew as she read countless numbers of romance novels. These days she really loves nothing more than throwing a troubled heroine into the arms of a sexy hero and then watching as their passion flare.
As a Registered Nurse specializing in Pediatric care, Portia’s life is filled with adventures. During the day, she spends her time with the children on the ward, listening to all their stories. But at night, she’s happy to be encouraged back into an imaginary world of excitement and love, even a little danger.
A competitive dancer from the age of eight, Portia began writing stories in between events to pass the time. By the age of fourteen, she told her mother she was going to be a registered nurse who is also a published romance writer, or a romance writer who was also a registered nurse. Now with a day job of nursing and writing everything from young adult to fantasy romance at night, both dreams have come true.
Portia writes young adult and contemporary fantasy romance novels that dig deeply into the lives of the characters, giving the reader an in-depth look into their hearts and souls. She likes creating real characters who could actually live next door to you, people you feel you would like to be friends with – or not!
When not writing, she enjoys walking the wooded trails around her home with her beautiful German Shepherd or relaxing in the boat on the lake in the summer.
Portia has three crazy cats, and a parrot that talks to her when she’s trying to write. She also loves movies, reading (of course!), and hopes one day to live on a tropical island.
