To the site of RONE nominated historical romance author & purveyor of warm, unexpected happily ever afters.



Whitney is a bit of a wanderer and something of a bluestocking. She’s been telling stories since childhood, when she would rewrite the endings of her favorite books and movies (or add “deleted scenes” to them). When she’s not writing or reading, she enjoys cooking, dancing, and going for long walks with no specific destination in mind.

What Reviewers Are Saying

Whitney has never let us down yet, the story just gets better as it goes along. Intriguing storyline, excellent characters and addictive reading.

I loved these two flawed characters, and the slow unfolding of their journey in this clean, but not staid, story. Their fears, pride, confusion, and humility are so real, believable and relatable that you can't help but cheer them on.

This was such a good book to read that I was sorry when it came to an end. I enjoyed every chapter.
