I have been married to the same very patient man since 1975 and we have one son and three wonderful grandchildren. I'm also the primary caregiver for my mom who lives with us. We live in South Carolina, USA, and we slip away to go RVing at Myrtle Beach whenever possible. Long walks on the beach help me unwind and often ignite my imagination.
I began reading and writing at an early age and thought I had died and gone to Heaven when I started school and found the library. Since then it has been my pleasure to entertain and inform others with the written word. A former technical writer and bookkeeper, I began writing articles and then romances in 1998. I am of the old school and believe that true romance tales should lead readers to the bedroom door and then leave a little something to the imagination.
Though my primary focus has been on writing sweet to sensual romance with a twist of the paranormal, adventure, mystery, or suspense along the way, I am now broadening my horizons into the field of speculative fiction and experimenting with more suspense.
Then in 2010 with the assistance of Laura Shinn (Cover Artist & Formatting Consultant), we launched into Independent E-book publishing with Publishing by Rebecca J. Vickery, Victory Tales Press, and Western Trail Blazer. With enthusiastic response from a varied group of multi-talented authors, cover artists, and editors, we have exceeded expectations in providing quality, affordable novels, novellas, short stories, and anthologies.
I sincerely hope you will enjoy reading my stories and our published works as much as we have enjoyed creating them for you.
Andrea Duncan has come into an inheritance at a most opportune time in her life. She was down on her luck, couple that with the worst year that you would not wish on even your dog and she was at the end of her tethers. To find out that you had a grandmother that you knew nothing about but also that you have inherited a house and a few other things in the bargain as well was a mixed bag of blessing for Andrea.
One of the things that came as apart of the inheritance along with a pile of stacked up paper work was a ring. This ring was unlike anything that Andrea has ever known or heard about and thank god she was not the type that jump a mile when things goes bump in the night - because there were voices coming from that ring. Andrea is rightly concerned about the ring and it's strange power or confusion in this case, but the benefits of small town living, a roof over her head and now she finds out that the local Sheriff actually made house call, she has no problem regulating the ring to the background of her life.
Sheriff Mason Keeler day is long enough as it is with goings on in town without adding a personal beef to his agenda, but he was not a happy bunny. Andrea's grandmother Rose was a friend of the sheriff and for all the time he had known Rose, there was no granddaughter in the picture - now one had presented herself as soon as she died - he was not happy. Mason's is objective if nothing else and is prepared to hear Andrea's side of the story - but what he was not expecting to do was to perk up from sexual interest as soon as he met her - that was definitely new.
Few things happens right from the moment Andrea and Mason shook hands and it only gets worst.Read more ›
