Hi, Readers! I’m so excited to be launching my Crystal Springs Homecoming Romances series, four books that are rich with the healing power of love and family and friends—LONG ROAD HOME, COMING HOME, A HOME FOR  HALEY and HOME AT LAST.

My first two romances, DANGEROUS MOVES and SHELBY’S GIFT are now Kindle books on

My writing career started with greeting cards when my kids were little—a wise choice since I didn’t have to keep a train of thought for very long to write those fun cards! I then moved to articles for national publications. But when I took a class in romance writing, I was so totally hooked. After all, I’d been an avid romance reader for years, and my kids were now in high school and college and I could keep a train of thought a bit longer!

I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with my German Shepherd, Sadie, who is learning her manners and commands like a real champ. When I’m not writing or reading, I love obedience training Sadie, walking, taking photos, daydreaming about my next trip to the Rocky Mountain National Park (love those Rocky Mountains), and enjoying my three beautiful granddaughters who never cease to amaze and entertain me.

I am also a licensed massage therapist and enjoy helping my clients feel better and listening to the stories of their lives. My wonderful clients always manage to keep me entertained and enlightened, and I am grateful for their insights into life’s complexities. My fabulous meditation group helps keep me grounded and fills me with love and hope along this path called life.

I hope you enjoy LONG ROAD HOME. Megan and Brett’s story is complex and full of twists and turns, and I had great fun writing it!

I love hearing from my readers, so feel free to drop me a note at
