About Me

I love writing romance for the same reason I love reading them--for the escape, entertainment, and knowledge that there will always be a happily-ever-after.
I'm a mild-mannered accountant by day and romance author by night! I enjoy reading, watching sports, and Zumba.
I'm often asked where I get my ideas. Well, here you go… 
Playing For Keeps: I love football and I when I was younger I thought about being a sportswriter but at that time women received a lot of grief. Heck, it still happens from time to time.
     Going For It: Jake and Hannah were inspired by Tom Brady and Giselle Buchen’s marriage. Only Jake is a yummy half Italian and half African-American (think Vin Diesel) hero. 
     Love By Design: My countless hours of watching HGTV paid off!
      Fun Fact 1: I read my first romance at the age of fifteen and soon after wrote my first romances starring my friends and their latest crushes! 
     Fun Fact 2: I keep inspiration boards for her books (and other fun stuff) on Pinterest. Check it out here: http://www.pinterest.com/lizmatis/
     Fun Fact 3: Playing For Keeps won the NECRWA First Kiss Contest. My handyman husband built a frame for the certificate and hung it on the wall by my desk as a surprise! (now THAT is a hero!)
