Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

She’s an oversize flannel shirt and leggings all the way

Does she know how to fix things?

A butter knife and hammer ;-)

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

She runs an animal rescue reserve. She needed to build a holding area for 2 serval cats that were going to come and live on her reserve. She had the housing she just needed to get the fencing up. And it had to be totally enclosed. And it’s November (she lives in Wisconsin so it’s cold). And her then 4-year-old wanted to ‘help’. She told him to go inside the small house and make the beds for the cats. He’d be out of the way and warm. After struggling with the wire with cold hands. She finally gets the enclosure done – it’s totally self-contained with only a small hole for the food and water. She’s proud of herself. She calls her son. He comes out of the house. Proud of himself also for the beds he made. She then realizes she has NO way to get him out….

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

She loves all children. She welcomes school groups to her reserve.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

She would like a quite time with her coffee and a doughnut but her son prefers coloring and cheerios while singing Down by the Bay

Can she use chopsticks?

Nope. She’s tried and decided after trying to using them and flipping a wonton through the air and hitting a stranger in the eye with it that it would be best to stick with a fork.

Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?

She loves strong black coffee

What apps would she have on her phone?

The wheels on the bus J

Android or iPhone?

Android

Earrings or unpierced ears?

Earrings – small studs of unicorns

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Several. They are all wildlife connected

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Personal but she sooooo needs a new one.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle – everything.

I live in the cold Northern Michigan (the place of four seasons – they lie! It’s just different levels of winter) with my husband. Our children have begun their own adventures, and just as I got into the swing of empty nest, then my grandson came to live with us. Now I’m doing 7 again… they argue everything just case you forgot. And I now remember why I eat doughnuts. When I’m not hanging out with the 7-year-old, I’m writing, reading, crocheting, and making self-care products. I also enjoy taking pictures, I’m not claiming to have a talent it’s just something I like to do.

Chase is forced into protective mode, when a ghost from Lauren’s past threatens to destroy, not only their Christmas, but their lives.

Christmas Decisions

Samantha (Sam) and Elliott’s suffer growing pains are put to the test when Sam’s newly divorced sister arrives unexpectantly five days before Christmas to lean on her baby sister.

I have a number of projects going. I’m in the midst of writing the fourth story in the Saddle Creek series, Moonlight Kisses and MugShots; I’m also working on a Novella for an anthology to be released next spring, as well as editing three or four other books I’ve already written.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

You’ll see A Cowboy’s Sweet Spot in an anthology, Moonlight Kisses and MugShots, Lost and Found, Deadly Homecoming, and Deadly Intuition. They’re all in different stages.

Genre Regency Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

The new Duke of Kinmarty has lost everyone who mattered and gained naught but a title, and debt, and an old pile of a castle. When a fetching new housekeeper appears on his doorstep frantic to ready the place for the Yuletide, he seizes the chance for a respite from grieving and pretends to be the new duke’s estate factor.

With her cousin’s children due to arrive from India, a vicar’s widow hides her identity and takes a position as housekeeper to the children’s dreadful uncle, the man who years ago sabotaged her own chance for happiness. Overwhelmed by a castle understaffed and in disarray, she forges a bond with the new duke’s charming but not very competent factor, not knowing that he’s hiding something as well.
