Hi Everyone,

I’ve just finished self-publishing my second novel, Fated Beginnings. It’s available through Amazon in both Kindle e-book and Print-on- Demand formats. It’s the first story in The McKay Series.

Fated Beginnings is a Western Romance set in Montana Territory in the 1880’s. This is a story about a young, unmarried woman from Boston who finds herself pregnant. Desperate to save her family from ridicule, she sets off across the country to marry a stranger who promises to give her child a name. Unfortunately, Montana Territory is nothing like Boston and she soon finds herself out of her element.

Our hero, who’s handsome face was maimed in a fire a few years back, considers himself the least desirable of husband candidates but agrees to marry the young women in order to start a family. 

Can Allison and Jayson overcome their deep-rooted fears and open their hearts to each other? 

Join me on a fast-paced journey to find out how the story ends 🙂 

Hope you enjoy,

Hi Everyone,

A few years ago I self-publishing my first novel, Dagger’s Destiny. It is available through Amazon in both Kindle e-book and Print-on-Demand formats. It’s the first story in The Destiny Series.

Dagger’s Destiny is a sweet, suspenseful Medieval Romance that takes place in 14th century England.

After Katherine’s father and brother are murdered, and her family’s castle is taken over by a ruthless lord, the young lady finds herself all alone in the world, running for her life with only the protection of her jeweled dagger.

Katherine is rescued by a childhood friend, Richard, who vows to protect her and escort her to the safety to his father’s estate. As our heroine plots her revenge, our hero finds himself inadvertently enmeshed in a direction, not of his choosing. Their journey together is fraught with danger, mystery, suspense, misunderstanding and, of course, romance.

I sincerely hope you enjoy reading this story as much as I enjoyed writing it!
