Romantic Suspense, Short Stories, Poetry

Since 2008, I have published romantic suspense that taps into the broad spectrum of human emotions, short stories that touch all genres, and thoughtful poetry on topics from life to love to imagination.

Though I write primarily romantic suspense, my stories span from historic settings to some futuristic time, and sometimes include touches of mystery, paranormal, and science fiction. Like my novels, the short stories that I create are descriptive, page-turning adventures with unforgettable characters. There aren’t many subjects that I don’t approach in my poetry. All of my books include a Dear Reader letter to introduce the topics highlighted in my stories, and conclude with Questions to Ponder, to encourage readers to contemplate their opinions and beliefs of societal issues.

Latest Book Release

This first book in a new series is a unique take on fiction. As William, owner of Asset, Inc., requests those interviewing for a job to tell him of their last assignment, the character's backstory is told in first person point of view. When the story shifts to present day, the point of view becomes third person omniscient. William hires eight new employees, starting with Piper McCarthy. All those who work for William are highly skilled in weapons, technology, languages, and have multiple contacts in their little black books. Though he accepts four jobs, only one is completed on these pages. The others? They'll be solved in next books in the series.

The Tanner Trilogy

Lives change with a single act...


Carli, Samantha, and Shaun Tanner recover from their father’s murder, an event which sets in motion irrevocable changes in each of their lives. The trilogy shares the tale of the Tanner siblings, set against the backdrop of the Western US wilderness, as they join together in the solidarity of family against foes of the past, and present threats.

Join Carli and Ethan, Samantha and Cole, and Shaun and Fiona as events complete the circle, and they discover and share life’s most precious gifts in an attempt to keep safe from those whose twisted hearts and darkened souls believe that their lust for possession justifies their actions.



The Roanoak Trilogy

Decisions, Castles and Magic...


Jameson Roanoak chose to wed another and sparks the beginning of this tale set in a mythical world of castles and swords and magic. The seven Roanoak brothers must locate their Others. Without women whose abilities compliment their own, the Roanoaks have no hope to break the Curse and return the land to prosperity. Though they scour the countryside and towns, spend many summers searching for another way, they discover only a battle to the death will end the war and plaques that brand the earth. As each Other is found, the brothers and the women must find ways to get along, to grow closer, to trust each other. This story of family and destiny invites the reader along as tensions and questions accumulate. Baltura poses a serious threat, one the brothers wonder if they'll be able to defeat. As the brothers learn to work together and to utilize the power and talent they and their Others possess, something deeper and darker stirs beneath the surface. If the Roanoaks fail to break Nyla's Curse, all will truly be lost. I invite you to turn the page and discover what the brothers have to give not just to each other, but to the women they cherish. Trust, family bonds, communication, teamwork, love, loss, independence, discovery, responsibility, and fate may or may not be victorious over greed, power, sickness, deception, black magic, death, and the evil that for seven generations has held the world in its grip.



Writer to Author Workshop

Have you thought about writing a book? 81% say they have a book inside them. Join me to learn what goes into readying a manuscript for publication, publishing options, and marketing ideas. In Part I, structured time will be offered for inspired writing and optional sharing. I’ll introduce you to the many approaches of the publishing industry, as each path of offering a writer’s work to the world requires particular steps.

For Part 2, there’s more Muse Juice (prompts!) followed by marketing ideas and how to care for the writer inside you.

This workshop explores ways of getting your work into the hands of readers and setting yourself up as an author and business owner. During, and after, the writing of your book and its launch, there are ways to nurture yourself so the creativity continues to flow. I’ll share my knowledge and experience on how to keep creative blocks from arising, and how to remove them if they do show up.
