It's been a very long time since this page has been updated and I apologize for that. As I'm sure you all know, occasionally "real" life gets in the way of our best intentions. Since I wrote VICTIM, that has been the case with me. We've moved from the home we built and lived in for 30 years to be closer to my son's family. We've welcomed a new grandson, for whom I'm being day- care. Add a couple of surgeries and the vagaries of the book business, and you can, I'm sure, understand that writing took a back seat for a while.
The good news is that I have two new historical works out very soon. The first, CLAIMING THE FORBIDDEN BRIDE, is Book #4 in a continuity called Regency Silk and Scandal. The first book is out in June. If you'd like to read more about this exciting project, please visit Silk and Scandal
I'm so excited to be writing again, particularly to be writing Regency historicals, my first love. I really hope that you'll look for these two new works. And I especially hope you'll enjoy them.
Please take a few minutes to visit the book pages and read excerpts from my new and upcoming releases. If you are looking for information on my earlier books, they are all listed there in reverse chronological order. I've also included a link to some of the handouts I use in my writing workshops in the hope that they might be helpful to aspiring authors.
If you have any questions about anything on the site, please e-mail me. I love to hear from readers. And I'd be very grateful if you'd take time to sign the guest register.
I look forward to hearing from you. Enjoy your visit!
"Flashback" August 2011
Jake Underwood has recovered from the terrible injuries he suffered in Iraq—except for the haunting flashbacks of the attack that decimated his unit. Then suddenly, in the middle of one of those, he sees not the familiar desert landscape of his nightmares, but a terrified and missing little girl.
Chief of Police Eden Reddick knows that with each passing hour, her chances of finding kidnap victim Raine Nolan alive decrease. That terrifying countdown resonates more strongly with Eden because her own sister was taken under similar circumstances and never seen again.
Despite being willing to pursue every lead, Eden can’t explain how or why Raine could appear in Major Underwood’s flashback. She is, however, impressed with the ex-soldier’s determination to find the child and bring her home. As they work desperately to rescue Raine, Eden begins to feel more than admiration for Jake, but can she keep her town’s anger and suspicions of him from compounding the tragedy they already face?
