My Books

Dear Readers,

Thanks for stopping by!  I write books about finding love, humor and second chances in everyday life.  There’s kissing involved.  But more than that,  I’m fascinated with the sometimes random, always complicated, connections we make with family, friends and the ones we choose as family.  Whether you’re looking for a quirky contemporary story or an emotional, historical adventure set in the Wild West, in my books you’ll find heroes that will steal your heart and the heroines who love them.  Enjoy!


March News:

Will this winter never end?? Now that I live in the Midwest, I’m missing all those California winters I took for granted for so long. Brrrr. It’s really cold this year. I hope you’re staying warm and cozy, getting a chance to curl up with a book by a fire. That sounds nice doesn’t it? Spring is weeks away and at this point, I’m just hoping it will actually show up! All this inside time means I’m hard at work on book four in the Band of Brothers series which will hopefully be out in August, 2019.

Speaking of California, I’m going to be a guest speaker at the California Dreamin’ Conference in Brea California, happening April 4-7. I’ll be giving three talks there, including an old favorite on mining your story for emotional gold and a new panel with my publisher, Jane Porter and Executive Editor, Meghan Farrell from Tule Publishing on Books to Film, or how to sell your book to Hollywood. Hope I’ll see you there!

Meanwhile, the new book #1 of my Band of Brothers series- UNSUNG HERO– is available NOW everywhere. I kinda have a crush on this cover!unsunghero-300dpi

So here’s the scoop  on the whole rebrand of my Band of Brothers series, because as you’ll notice, they have all new covers titles and (eh-hem) even order. Because why not? No really, there’s method to my madness.

It’s a little complicated to explain, but this new one will be the new BOOK 1 for my ex-Navy SEALs series, BAND OF BROTHERS. Now, this book was published once before under the title RECKLESS IN LAGUNA, but it got lost in KindleWorld somewhere. At any rate, I originally wrote it with the intention of connecting it to this series. This  past summer, when all of us KindleWorld-ers unexpectedly got our rights back to those books,  I decided to expand it and republish it as a real part of this series. So I completely rewrote it and expanded the book by 30%. So if you have read that other version, this one has more. And UNSUNG HERO sets up the other books and Nio Reyes’s part in them. I’ve also updated both the other books to make sure they all sing along in harmony.  Did you follow all that?

Here are the other two new gorgeous covers with the NEW TITLES:

A Little Christmas Magic became ONCE A HEROBook #2- Trey.


and Road to You became UNEXPECTED HERO – Book #3- Noah.


I hope you enjoy these stories and the new gorgeous heroes on the covers. I’m trying to update the photos on my slider (above) but having some technical difficulties. I’m a writer. Enough said. (For now, please ignore that incorrect cover.)

If historicals are your jam, I have three (3!) books on sale. My THE LADY TAKES A GUNSLINGER and THE RUINATION OF ESSIE SPARKS (both also on KU) and RENEGADE BRIDE are ALL on SALE! That’s triple the fun for you. This SALE won’t last much longer.  So what are you waiting for?

I’m thrilled to say I signed a film option on my 3rd Canadays of Montana book, THE CHRISTMAS WISH, for a cable-TV movie and it’s officially moved into Production! That’s pretty much all I’m allowed to share at this point and…you know, it’s Hollywood. So I’m keeping my fingers, toes and eyes crossed, hoping for a movie this next Christmas season. But I’ll definitely keep you up to date on the happenings there.
