New Books for you!!!

This month I have exciting news to share. Heartwarming Holiday Wishes, this year’s Christmas Town, Maine anthology with ten novellas by ten Heartwarming authors is available to kick off the holiday season. You can read an excerpt from my novella, Mistletoe and Holly, here.

In November Cowboy on Call, the third book in my Kansas Cowboys series, will be released. There’s a blurb and an excerpt here.

Also, see Appearances with dates for some upcoming special events. And I’m so pleased to announce there’ll be a fourth book in this series! The working title is Wannabe Cowboy, and I’m hard at work on the story now. If you’ve already met Finn, the sheriff, you can get to know him a lot better in this one. And to share a bit about myself…

Hello, Everybody!

I’m a Gemini and we Twins of the Zodiac can be easily bored. I always need a challenge. I keep busy, and engaged, by writing heartfelt contemporary romance, sweet romance and romantic suspense. There’s even a bit of the historical in my book Unforgettable.

 In each book I write, I try to pose a question for that story and set of characters. (E.g., in Danny Boy, “How do I create romantic tension for an already-married couple?”) And no matter which subgenre I’m working in, my stories always seem to contain a smidgen of suspense too or a secret, even a small one. Something to help keep those pages turning.

Characters, their relationship and emotions, are my favorite part of the writing process. They’re what I usually come up with first, and I love these “people” more and more as the story plays out. I admit I’m also a pantser rather than a plotter. I like my characters to “channel” their deepest emotions and to decide, as much I’ll let them, what will happen to them in the book. It’s amazing what I learn! Yet there’s a definite downside: It’s always hard to let them go.

Take a look around this new website. And Happy reading! Be sure to check back often to see what’s coming next.
