With a passion for historical romance, history in general, and anything Celtic, I always have an exciting work in progress or a new idea waiting to be started. Each story offers a blend of romance, adventure, suspense, and, where appropriate, a dab of comic relief. Carefully researched historical facts are woven into each manuscript, providing a backdrop from which steamy romance, gripping plots, and vivid characters—dashing alpha heroes and resourceful, beguiling heroines you can’t help but admire—spring to life. A PAN member of RWA, World Romance Writers, Celtic Hearts Romance Writers, and Savvy Authors, I also write contemporary, paranormal, time travel, and romantic suspense.
C.S. Lewis first captivated my imagination in the fourth grade, and my desire to write sprang from there.I remember signing out The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe once a month that entire 4th grade year. The rest of the Narnia series were not available. Following a career in nursing and child and youth work, I married my knight-in-shining-armor, and he whisked me away to his castle by the sea. In reality, we share a century-old home in a small Canadian town on the shore of Lake Erie with three dogs and a cat. When I am not working at my childcare job, on my small business, or writing, you will find me reading, camping, or antique hunting.
My first release HIGHLAND LEGACY was an Amazon best seller in historical romance for Jan and Feb 2012.
Finalist in Oklahoma RWA International Digital Awards 2012 for Long Historical Romance!
Watch for the sequel, HIGHLAND QUEST coming to Soul Mate Publishing on Dec 19 2012
The Fraser saga continues with Highland Homecoming, to be released in the summer of 2013!
Book 3 of the series is Alasdair's story, the oldest brother and least likely to fall in love or take a bride. Dedicated to the cause and with no desire for a wife or commitments, the last thing Alasdair expects to find on his way to visit a friend is a beautiful lass lying on the beach, in need of his help.
Unable to turn his back on someone in need, Alasdair delays his journey to care for the lass until she is able to travel...providing she lives to do so. When she awakens after three days with no memory who she is or how she came to be on the beach and is suffreing from a serverely sprained ankle, Alasdair's resolve and patience is put to the test.
Can he resist temptation and rejoin the cause, or will she win his heart and break it again when a secret she carries is revealed, proving to him once again, woman can not be trusted?
