I love writing about the things closest to my heart: My Family, my Irish Ancestry, Baking and Gardening. Take a trip back in time to the Old West with my Irish Western Series, then fast-forward to the present, stopping at the Circle G Ranch in Pleasure, Texas before finally landing in Apple Grove, Ohio–Small Town USA–for a slice of Peggy McCormack’s Buttermilk Pie!
My love for the written word is a gift from my parents, but the need to write was instilled by my 7th Grade English teacher. One of my writing quirks is that I love to include bits and pieces of my ancestors and ancestry in all of my books.
Fate, destiny and love at first sight will always play a large part in my stories because they played a major role in my life. When I saw my husband for the first time, I knew he was the man I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I've loved him forever, well, more than half my life. Each and every hero I write about has a few of Dave's best qualities, his honesty, his integrity, his compassion for those in need and his killer broad shoulders. I'm such a sucker for a man with broad shoulders.
