Growing up in Hawaii, it seemed only natural that Lelani would fuse her island-life background with hot, modern love stories!
Passionately married to her dream man, Lelani and her software-developer husband, Pete, have four children (five if you count the little girl dog) and consider their backyard in the Colorado Rockies paradise with its unruly grapevines, a flock of cute chickens, fruit trees, koi fish and an organic garden. In the spring months, Lelaniâ€™s lilacs billow with fragrance and color.
Lelani has worked as a janitor, shopgirl at a clothing boutique in downtown Honolulu, secretary, business office managerâ€¦ among other positions that keep her mind chock full of naughty ideas for stories. Writing is her favorite, most wonderful, most aggravating profession by far, and she finds a fountain of inspiration for her heroes in her husbandâ€™s outrageous wit and passion for adventure. Some of the most tender or laugh out loud moments in her stories? His fault.
When not in front of her computer writing into the midnight hour (and beyond) Lelani loves to garden. Cooking luscious meals for friends and family in her small, gourmet style kitchen is one of lifeâ€™s greatest joys for her. Travel? Yes, please. Music? Dancing? Check, check. Karaoke? After two alcoholic drinks, she tries to slay the competition.
While she goes home to the islands every chance she gets, a rustic acre of undeveloped property in one of the Hawaiian islands is where she and her husband eventually plan to call home.
