Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you found my home on the Web and hope you'll return occasionally to see what's new.
Right now, I'm celebrating the reception Out of the Embers, the first of the Mesquite Springs trilogy, has received from both professional reviewers and readers alike. Midwest Book Review says it's "extraordinarily entertaining," while Booklist calls it "a moving and uplifting tale." For more reviews, CLICK HERE.
Do you judge a book by its cover? If so, those bluebonnets tell you that it's set in the Texas Hill Country, and Evelyn's apron hints at her profession. I'm not spoiling the story by telling you that she's a fabulous cook who opens a restaurant in Mesquite Springs and that more than one man, including horse rancher Wyatt, is attracted by more than her cooking.
It's been so much fun bringing this new town to life, and though my heart ached over all that Evelyn endured, I was glad that I could give her the happy ending she deserved.
If you'd like to learn more about Evelyn and Wyatt's story or watch the trailer, here's THE LINK. And, if you'd like to sample the story, here's an EXCERPT.
I hope I've intrigued you.
I also hope you'll explore the tabs on this page, because they give you more information about me and my books. I've even included hints for aspiring writers. And since I'm also a lecturer, there's a tab with descriptions of my most popular workshops.
One of my greatest pleasures as an author is hearing from readers, so I encourage you to let me know your reaction to my books. If you have questions or comments, or if there's something else you'd like to see on this website, send me an EMAIL.
