July always feels like the peak of summer, being right smack in the middle between June and August. I'm planted right where I should be on a lazy summer afternnoon; on my back porch swing next to the kiddie/dog pool. As of today, I now have two new story collections that are perfect for a fun summer read: BE MINE: the entertaining tales of young cowgirls who grow up to rope their cowboys. Most of these started as childhood crushes and grew over the years. Reluctant Cowgirl To Love a Cowboy...

There is nothing better when I'm in need of a little relaxation than listening to a warm and fuzzy story on audio. When the world feels a little too big and a tad bit sad, I love how a good, sweet story can fill me with peace and hope. I guess that's one reason I wanted to put my stories into audio-books-- so I could hear someone else tell me a story that goes just the way I hoped it would go, and ends happily ever after. That's the beauty of writing your own stories. Ha! But the best part is,...

For those of you who enjoy listening to books on audio, I thought I'd let you know I have a dozen of my books now available on audible and amazon.

I have a bunch of promo codes to send to anyone who would like to listen to and Review any of my stories. If you don't have audible, they are avaiable on amazon for $5 to $6 per book. You can request any, or all of my books by writing to me on my...

Happy Snowy Winter!! Happy New Year to my friends and readers! As we find ourselves in holiday recovery mode ( yes, I ate everything in sight, and my house still looks like a tornado hit), I thought I'd take you for a tour of the little Bavarian town I just spent my birthday in. Surprisingly, I did not have to fly across oceans to get here. Leavenworth, Washington is actually a replica of a small Bavarian town in the Swiss Alps....right here in Eastern Washington.

Fun In the Sun Beach Reads can take you anywhere you'd like to go! There's nothing better than sitting on a beach with sand between your toes and a good book in your hand. But sometimes, I have to settle for my own back yard. It takes some imagination, but filling the kiddie pool and pulling up a comfortable deck chair helps to get you started. Then find a story that will take you to your happy place and dream away! I hope your summer brings you simple pleasures and happy stories!

I LOVE MAY DAY! Hi Readers! Do any of you remember May Day as the day we used to run around the neighborhood and put little bouquets of flowers on the neighbor's doorsteps, ring the bell, and run away? I do! I also remember picking their flowers to offer back to them! ha! Well, I may be too old to get away with picking my neighbor's flowers and have them think it's cute, but something about spring makes me feel more alive after a long, cold winter, and I go in search of a spirited heroine to...

If you're like me, my reading selections change with the seasons and holidays. I'm easily influenced visually. When the first snow comes, I have to either read or write a holiday story. Now that all of the twinkling, colored lights are turning to red hearts and Valentines, I find myself looking for sweet love stories--hopefully ones that involve a little chocolate inside those shiny red heart-shaped boxes. I'm really excited about the Valentine sampler Foget Me Not Romances just released:...

The story writing process differs greatly from author to author. I thought it might be fun to take you along on my writing adventure this time. As I have mentioned before, many of my story ideas are triggered by a simple photo. This cat, alone, is responsible for the idea of PURR-suasion. There's just something about a cat with little boots on, and a cape, and a hat, and a sword, that cannot be left alone. The idea of a cat playing Matchmaker came to mind when I saw him. I also love Jane...

2017 began with writing for Forget Me Not Romances. I found a home for Dawn's Gentle Light, and was encouraged to write some more romantic novellas.....so I did! I reworked Happy Camper, Summer of the Carousel, and Farley's Five and Dime. I wrote Always Kiss Me Goodbye, The Reluctant Cowgirl, The Scullery Maid's Day Off, A Chance of Rain, Jackson's Treasure, Liza of Green Gables, and Sweetwater Cafe. Looking back, I am thankful to have had so many books come out in one year, which means I have...

This title says it all when we come to the final countdown toward Christmas. Running out of Christmastime is often where we find ourselves 3 days before Christmas. But it doesn't have to be this way if we change our expectations and perception of what Christmas should really be about. My friend Cindy Amos has helped me to slow down and enjoy a sweet cozy read by the fire that reminds me of family, good friends, kind relationships , and ultimately, the Birth of Christ. I love that her stories...
