I'm the director, the actors, and the script writer. It's my show and I love coming up with the scenes and putting my characters through trying times. Action, adventure, comedy and romance, my favorite genres and I put a little of these genres in my stories. (less)

“She wanted to believe him so much, but fear held her in its grasp more firmly than ever before. And if she made the wrong decision, she would have to live with the result for the rest of her life. That could be a long time and she’d already made one wrong choice regarding marriage and love. What if she made another? She sat there remembering the way he’d been good to her children, the way he’d made love to her that first time, soothing her fears. She remembered how he’d finally begun to teach her the shipping business, the impromptu baseball game with Philip, the picnic in her office, the trip to his family home, and all the little things that made her laugh. From the very first he’d been kind to her, while lying repeatedly regarding the business. The business seemed to be his Achilles’ heel and he’d just given it to her.”
Sylvia McDaniel, Wronged

“She knows that the two of us go together like boric acid and sugar. Sweet and deadly.”
Sylvia McDaniel, The Rancher Takes A Bride

“But sometimes dreams change,”
