Just For You!

Like a Love Song, my second book with Ashberry Lane Publishing,
comes out in April 2015, and I wanted to give YOU, my blog friends, the first peek of the shiny new COVER! 
Isn't it lovely?
Well done, Nicole & Ashberry Lane!
Set in the high desert of central Oregon's Outback, this contemporary love story (formerly titled Sandcastles in Snow) follows Like There's No Tomorrow with a new love story at Juniper Ranch.
Susan Quinn, a social worker turned surrogate mom to foster teens, fights to save the group home she’s worked hard to build. But now, she faces a dwindling staff, foreclosure, and old heartaches that won't stay buried. Her only hope lies with the last person she’d ever turn to—a brawny handyman with a guitar, a questionable past, and a God he keeps calling Father.

Like a Love Song is a romantic drama about a fiercely loyal woman and some castaway kids who need the courage to believe in a love that never fails.

Look for quality "Heartfelt Tales of Faith" from Ashberry Lane & be sure to sign up for this and other book release news at www.ashberrylane.com.
Like There’s No Tomorrow is an amusing yet heart-tugging love story about two kind, single caretakers, two quirky old Scottish sisters bent on reuniting, and too many agendas. It's a tale of family, fiery furnaces, faith, and the gift of each new day..

An Interview with Jorie Loves A Story

I'm honored and thrilled to be a guest at the Jorie Loves A Story blog today where she interviews me about my latest novel, Like There's No Tomorrow. She plans to post her review of LTNT very soon.

Jorie is an avid reader, blogger, and book reviewer, and asks some very thought-provoking questions about the inner-workings of this novel, such as:

"As our paths crossed through the Hallmark Channel tv series “When Calls the Heart” what is your favourite part of Sweet Romances both in fiction and on tv (or in film)?"


"Fear is powerful if people allow it to wash over them without the light pulling them through. Why do you think your characters had to walk through their fear and the seedlings of doubt in order to better understand where their life was meant to take them?"

Plus more. I hope you'll take a moment to visit Jorie's "bookish blog" and check out our interview and Q&A about Like There's No Tomorrow.

Savanna's Gift (Christmas Romance) now .99 cents for Kindle

Just in time to get into the Christmas spirit: 

My 2011 Christmas Romance, Savanna's Gift, is now on sale for Kindle for only .99 cents! 

I'm not sure how long Amazon will offer it at this low price, so grab it, savor it now or save it for later when you need to unwind. Enjoy a sweet treat and a mug of something hot & spiced, and experience rekindled love amid twinkly lights, snow, sweet treats, and God-given second chances.



I've written three novels and a novella (more about those on my website.) I've been writing stuff - legit literary term - all my life, but decided in 2007 to get serious about being published.

I love action movies and Jane Austen. (she’s dead, I know. I found that out when I tried to get her to endorse my novel)

They let me play Bass guitar and sing in a worship band.

I can produce 4 dozen homemade cinnamon rolls in a flash for a crowd of drooling young adults. Or publishing house editors.

I used to have a Harley. Now we have twenty-something kids. Decent trade, really. The window-rattling grumble isn't quite the same, but we are still enjoying the ride.

I am a proud new Grammie. Don't even think about taking candy from my baby.

I hate shopping (Yes, I'm aware that I'm a girl)

My ringtone is the theme from "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly"(whoo-00-oo-00-oo, waa waa waa)

I've lived in Oregon all my life, spent time in Eugene (O! Go DUCKS!), Springfield, Reedsport, and Smith River. Which is not really a town, but a river, about 70 miles long, a tributary of the Umpqua River in southwest Oregon.

Although it's not a town, it is a community with a strong sense of pioneer history. It's cool to say you've lived there, especially if you lived there during the days when you had to take a boat to school. No joke! The old farmhouse my grandfather and my mother grew up in still stands, nestled into a narrow, pasture carpeted valley, complete with a swimmin' hole and its own 'crick'. It may turn up in one of my novels.

There's a rumor that my ancestors had a connection with the Mafia back in Sicily. I used to fantasize as a kid about a big black limo with tinted windows pulling up and whisking me away from school. Ahhh. So THAT'S why I'm having so much trouble conjugating my dangling participles now.

NOT RANDOM: I am challenged by the truth and amazed by the grace of God. And it's either in spite of or because of that grace that I hold a PhD in Learning Stuff the Hard Way.

Like There's No Tomorrow

What if loving means letting go?

Scottish widower Ian MacLean is plagued by a mischievous grannie, bitter regrets, and an ache for something he’ll never have again. His only hope for freedom is to bring his grannie's sister home from America. But first, he'll have to convince her lovely companion, Emily, to let the old woman go.

Emily Chapman devotes herself to foster youth and her beloved Aunt Grace. Caring for others quiets a secret fear she holds close to her heart. But when Ian appears, wanting to whisk Grace off to Scotland, everything Emily needs to protect—including her heart—is at risk.

Like There’s No Tomorrow is a tender, witty love story about two single caregivers, two quirky old sisters bent on reuniting, and too many agendas. It’s a tale of family, fiery furnaces, falling in love, faith, and the gift of each new day.

Like There's No Tomorrow is now available in print & eBook at Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, iTunes, & Kobo.
