HOLLOW HEART, a post World War II story that takes place in 1947, was part of the Valentine anthology from Prairie Rose Publications this year and now it's out as a quick read with it's own beautiful cover created by Livia Washburn. You can preorder it right now at Amazon. HOLLOW HEART will be released on December 11 for only 99 cents.

Lost love and the hope for possibilities


Madeline Andrews is a grown up orphan. Sam Wilding made her feel part of his life, his family and swore he’d come home to her when the war ended, but he didn’t return. With the Valentine’s Ball just days away, the Wildings encourage Madeline to move forward with her life and open her heart to the possibilities.  But Madeline is lost in old love letters and can’t seem to let go.


Madeline folded the letter and slipped it back into its envelope. Her heart ached as she put the envelope back into the box. She placed it with reverence on her dresser beside the picture of Sam and her, laughing into the sun on that beautiful summer day, years ago. She twisted the gold ring with the little heart-shaped ruby around her left ring finger. Sam had given it to her the day he left for deployment to Europe. He said it was a promise ring. The ring would remind her of his love, his promise to return, and his pledge to wed her when the war ended. A sigh escaped her. None of his promises had come true.

Just Released for Preorder: PRESENT FOR A COWBOY

PRESENT FOR A COWBOY, a western Christmas anthology with 5 western romance writers is now available for preorder at Amazon: Preorder at Amazon
My contribution: When Love Comes Knocking

A lonely widow…an indiscretion…a gift for redemption


Penelope Witherspoon was charmed into marriage by Evan Thoroughgood only to learn she loved a philanderer, who gambled away his inheritance and drank too heavily. It came as no surprise that four months after their marriage, Evan was shot dead for cheating at cards. Since his death, Penelope has come to depend on his older brother, Gil. In fact, she has come to love and respect him. No two men could be further apart in character. But, if Gil learns of her secret indiscretion, he will want nothing further to do with her. What is Penelope to do?

Penelope hadn’t seen Gil in three days. She began to worry that something was wrong between them. She tried to go about her work to keep her mind from wandering and thinking about him, but every time she saw the Christmas tree he’d brought her and helped her decorate, her thoughts went right back to the night he left and the strained words at their parting.

Had he guessed at the truth about her and Banjo? Did he hate her now? What could she do to fix things and make him understand?

Nice Stuff People Do

Kathleen Rice Adams, a fellow author at Prairie Rose Publications, made this poster for my story, The Beast of Hazard, in the Halloween anthology from Prairie Rose, COWBOYS, CREATURES AND CALICO, VOL. 1. It really made me so happy that someone would just do something nice for me just because. That's so spirit lifting. Here is the great poster she made for my story:
