Trail of Redemption, Book 6 in Western Trails series!

I can’t believe I didn’t announce my newest historical western romance release! I guess that’s what happens when I try to write and edit too many things at the same time. Anyway, for those of you who read Mia’s Misfits, you may remember a strong-willed nine-year-old orphan named Summer. She reminded me of myself as a child—smart-mouthed, head-strong, independent—so I just had to give her an HEA of her own. I also hope you enjoy her hero, Wild Eagle, who is a Potawatomi Indian with a few issues he’s trying to resolve from his own past.     Creek-Seminole Indian, …

Something New!

Hello my friends! For the past too many years, I have worked on a very special project and finally, finally finished it. The story is so incredibly special to me that I rewrote it several times to get it ‘just right’. For those of you who know me, you know I’ve had a life-long obsession with World War II.

Fire of Love: A Medieval Description of Love

While in college, I took a class on the Middle Ages. This was, by far, my favorite class. Not only did we learn about the events during this magnificent time but also how these events were influenced by not only Christianity but also Islam, Judaism, and many of the mythological religions practiced by ancient Gaul, Greece, Rome, and the coastal regions of Africa. For one of the required presentations, I had to research a prominent figure the time. His name was Richard Rolle and was, most probably, the first person to use the vernacular to deliver his faith, as both …
