More About the Author
So I'm a West Coast girl raised by Southern parents, who grew up in a place where you spent your free time playing volleyball on the beach and weekends dancing to local bands like Beach Boys and the Righteous Brothers.
My husband and I met in high school, and I never knew I wanted to be a writer until I was in my thirties and back in college again. I had been an art major the first time around--it was the 60's--quit to make some kind of mark in the world, but I got married instead.
My love of history and reading and art all came together for me when I quit school again, after working toward my history degree and then becoming a mother--something we were told couldn't happen. (The child not the degree.) So with the miracle gift of my daughter, came a new career for me.
I knew then I wanted to write a book, had an idea and more importantly a vision of the kind of stories I wanted to tell. I told myself I could always go back to school.
Funny thing the way life works. Almost two years to the day I quit school, I sold my first book on 50 pages to Pocket Books, a division of Simon and Schuster. That was over 22 years ago and many books later.
So the road I traveled to become an author had many twists and turns, joys and disappointments. Yet I'm doing something I really love. In so many ways I'm a very lucky woman.

Young, gentle Amy Emerson is attending that party, as well as her fiancé. She finds out rather publicly he's only interested in her money. Brokenhearted and humiliated, she breaks off their engagement.
Eachann McLachlan, tall, blonde and a bit wild, lives at Highland Castle with his older brother, Cullum, who is his polar opposite. Cullum is dark, calm, meticulous, and has resolved to remain unmarried. The brothers are descendents of a Highlands clan who were forced to flee Scotland, and now reside together on this remote and isolated island off the coast of Maine.
Eachann's two young children have just been expelled from school, and are returning to live with him and Cullum. Eachann decides he must marry in order to have a wife to raise his children. During Georgina's house party, he overhears her say she must marry, so he impulsively kidnaps her to be his bride. Eachann also witnessed Amy's misery, and decides to bring her along against her will, as the bride for Cullum.
Once back on the island, Georgina is angry, screaming in protest, and tries repeatedly to escape. But between Eachann, who she refers to as "McOaf", and the pea soup fog covering the whole island, she's stuck with her captor. Amy handles the situation quietly while nursing her broken heart. Cullum finds himself attracted to Amy, but valiantly tries to fight his feelings.Read more ›
CARRIED AWAY was another island adventure. Calum and Eachann Maclachlan could not be more different from one another. Calum liked things clean and orderly. Eachann was a slob, to put it mildly. Both handsome in their own way, Calum was the serious one. He needed glasses to see and he was not as tall as his younger brother. Eachann did things on the spur of the moment. Consequences were not thought of until the event had a fall-out. The house they lived in on a island off of Maine was split down the middle to avoid problems among the two. They got along. Until now.
Eachann had to retrieve his two young children from the mainland. They were thrown out of the latest and last boarding school that had accepted them. Kirsty, seven, and Graham, eight, had reached the headmistess' last bit of patience. They were motherless and wanted to be with their father so they drew attention to themselves. And not in a good way.
On his way back to his home Eachann thought of an answer to his problems. He would marry Georgina Bayard, 'George', someone he had just met. It would ease his loneliness and he would have a mother to take care of his children. He also found another woman, Amy Emerson, for his brother. But oh, those, consequences.
Now to my three star rating; Eachann came off as somewhat stupid. The children had an adult vocabulary and the dialog between Kirsty and her father was not something I would have expected from a seven year old.Read more ›
