My how time does fly! February was here and gone in a flash, but it was a wonderful month full of memories. I went to Hawaii with my oldest son and his family and we had an absolute wonderful time! My granddaughter and I rode horses along the beach on the north shore, and it’s a memory neither of us will ever forget. If you ever have a chance to visit the Islands of Hawaii, I’d say “Jump at it!” And if you’ve already been there, I’m sure you’ll agree! The entire vacation was simply fabulous! 

Coming home, as it always is, was nice too, even with the ice and snow. Before I left, another one of my granddaughters Googled ‘Souvenirs for an eight-year-old girl from Hawaii’ and made me a list of things to bring home. Which I did. I had to purchase another suitcase, but that was all part of the fun. I also brought home a lot of tasty treats and we had a Hawaiian party a couple of weeks ago. Upon which my youngest son made a dramatic entrance on his snow-mobile. There truly is never a dull moment around here. 

While I was in Hawaii, Married to Claim the Rancher’s Heir was released! Thank you, dear fans, for purchasing this book. You truly are the reason I write, and I so appreciate your support! 

Next up is In the Sheriff’s Protection. It will be released in print on March 20th in print and April 1st in ebook. This story is another addition of the Mail Order Brides of Oak Grove series. Both Kathryn and I have really enjoyed writing about the characters of our little fictional Kansas town. 

Then, this summer, there will be my WW2 story! Diary of a War Bride.  I so enjoyed writing this book. While at a family reunion last May, I promised my uncle that I would use his name in a book, so the hero of this book is Dale Johnson, and he has a brother named Ralph (my other uncle). 

I will have a Christmas story our later this year, and I’m excited to share that my ‘ghost’ story, Beneath a Beating Heart is in the final edits stage with The Wild Rose Press! This is a project I’ve worked on in-between other books and am so happy that it found a home with this great publisher!

I hope you all have been happy, healthy, and wise! And stay that way!

Now Available

Married to Claim the Rancher’s Heir was released in print on January 16th, and the ebook version will be released on February 1st
 To claim his heir…

…he must marry his enemy!

Gabe Callaway is outraged when feisty Janette Parker lands on his doorstep with her orphaned niece—though he soon realizes little Ruby is heir to his ranch! If Janette wants money, he’ll pay her off to keep the little girl in her rightful place. But all Janette wants is Ruby… Will Gabe do whatever it takes to claim his heir—even marry Janette?

Other books that will come out in 2018 include In the Sheriff’s Protection in March/April (it's part of the Mail Order Brides of Oak Grove series), Diary of A War Bride in June/July, and a story about a gambler's Christmas homecoming (titled yet to be determined) in Harlequin’s Christmas anthology that will be released in October/November. I’ll also have a paranormal story released later this year by The Wild Rose Press. 

Westerns have been my favorite stories to read and write for years, but because they are being eliminated in Harlequins historical line, I will be exploring a few other eras to write about and am looking forward that.  

I’m also looking forward to an upcoming vacation to a place full of sunshine and beaches!

Stay happy and kind.

Are you ready?

I have a few final items to purchase, but other than that, we are ready, and have already been experiencing the joys of the Christmas season. I do hope the same for each and every one of you. I believe every day is a delight, and a treasure, no matter the season, so please do enjoy each and every moment to the very best of your ability.

Here is our very special granddog, who has the ability to make every day special. He arrives at our door early every morning with a doggy grin on his face and his tail wagging like he hasn't seen us in years rather than hours. He acts the very same way when his family comes to pick him up every night. You just have to love an attitude like that.


If you're still looking for some Christmas stories to read, Harlequin has several books on sale for only 99 cents, so head on over to my Amazon page and take a peek.

I'm excited to say my WW2 story is done! Diary of a War Bride will be released in July!

And, I have some covers to reveal!!

Married to Claim the Rancher's Heir will be released in February! 

In the Sheriff's Protection (Oak Grove series) will be released in April!

I wish you all a very happy holiday season!!!

Happy November!

Brrr… We had the coldest Halloween in over ten years, but that didn’t stop the festivities. Papa took the four-wheeler and trailer to town and drove our group of trick or treaters around the neighborhoods. Our grandson’s favorite treat was the jar of homemade pickles he received when he trick or treated Uncle Cody. 

Today, while the blistery weather continues, I have a fire going in the wood stove, and Uncle Cody just stopped over and built a fire in the stove in the sauna for us all to enjoy this evening. Yep, it’s that time of year.  

If you're looking to snuggle up and read a book today, several of mine are on sale for $.99, $1.99, $2.99, etc. You can view them on my Amazon page.

And over at The Pink Heart Society today there is a fun post about favorite time periods, and a poll to vote for your favorite. 

I wrote about my favorite time period—the wild west—however today, I’m deep in edits for my WW2 story. It’s been fun to write in this new-to-me era. The hero is Dale Johnson from North Dakota and the heroine is Kathryn Winslow from London.
Once the edits are complete on this story, I’ll be back to writing a western. Another Christmas one, which are always fun. 

Stay warm and embrace the days as the holidays arrive one after the other!!
