More About the Author
They heal from pinpricks and catastrophes. They heal seamlessly or with scars, hidden or visible. They heal in as many ways as there are things to heal from, then multiplied by the number of individuals there are in this world.
As a journalist, I witnessed moments of "injury" and frequently found myself asking "How does someone get past that?" - whether "that" was pinprick or catastrophe. That question is also at the heart of my stories. What my characters are healing from frequently falls into the realm of wounds most of us carry. That makes the healing no less fascinating and no less admirable than if a character has troubles few of us will ever encounter. (I am piling on with one character right now, and it's starting to make me feel a little guilty.)
I find people often heal from doses of humor, honesty, and being pushed into situations they've been trying to avoid. Since few people will push themselves into situations they've been avoiding (wg), the characters need friends, family, and community willing to push. So my stories have a lot of those elements.
That's why I'm most pleased that my readers say my books blend "laughter and tears" with characters who "live and breathe." I don't have the most focused writing career - contemporary romance, mystery, women's fiction, historical romance, nonfiction - but those elements unite my 30+ titles.
Some say my stories have happy endings. I like to think of each story as being the process of the main characters getting themselves to a point where they can have a happy beginning. Because they've done a lot of healing.
If you enjoy stories about characters learning, growing, and healing, with some humor, sometimes some mystery, and frequently romance, I hope you'll try my books.

Rachel ends up a widow twice before she finally gets to keep Nick for herself. In between she tries to keep her ranch going by marrying yet another man she does not love. She and her son and her ranch survive through the worst winter in history, at the cost of the horses she has bred for years and loves so dearly.
The other love story is that of Nicks sister Alba and her beau Davis. Alba shows up late in the book. Davis has been learning and growing under Nick's tutelage since the beginning. Their story is much sweeter than Rachel and Nick's, but just as moving.
The characters are so real you come to know them personally. It's a book you won't want to end.
I would have enjoyed the story a lot more without all that back & forth "suspenseful" will he/won't he? - and if the descriptions of their sexual encounters weren't so poetic and flowery. It's sex, not the dawning of a new creation.
Oh yeah, at one point, he "sent his eyes to her!" Wonder if that was by FedEx or UPS??? Hope he got a receipt!
