Would love to have everyone join us
We're going to chat about my latest book A BEAUTY REFINED and have lots of fun. Here's one of the websites to get hooked up for the party.
What does it take to reveal the true beauty of a hidden gem?Phoebe Von Bergen, the daughter of a German count, is excited to visit America for the first time while her father purchases sapphires in Helena, Montana. Little does she know, ho...

Book 1 - A Treasure Concealed comes out in March.
Book 2 - A Beauty Refined comes out in July
Book 3 - A Love Transformed comes out in October
One of the really neat things about this series is all three are set in Montana and all three have Yogo sapphires as a point of interest. Otherwise - this is an independent series where all three books stand alone. I know some of you readers will love that as...

I triumphantly wrote THE END on amanuscript last summer, and here I am again on deadline. I came across apost I wrote (but never published) while I was on thatsqueaky tight deadline last summer. I’d been noting the things that enabled me to finally finish that first draft—along with the things that had not been quite so helpful, and thought I’d share a few of them with you.
After more than twenty years with deadlines, and almost that long with fellow writer friends who sometimes seem to be th...

Happy new year, all!
Are you back in the swing of your usual weekly routine after Christmas? My three kids returned to school on Wednesday so I’m back in the thick of it. Except (shh) I still haven’t yet taken down the holiday decorations…
The good about our usual weekly routine: quiet hours in which to work. The bad: very early mornings and having to badger my kids into doing their homework at night.
I LOVED our Christmas vacation days. Thus, I thought I’d take a fond look back at the trip...

My favorite Christmas vacations are the ones where I don’t have to travel . . . much. Days spent in pajamas. Playing board games with the family. Piecing together a puzzle. Watching movies and TV shows that have piled up on the TiVo because we don’t have time to watch them during our normal routine. Cross-stitching. Reading Christmas novellas. Love it!
This Christmas certainly qualifies. My husband’s family usually joins us at our house, but this year, work schedules prevented a large gatheri...

I got in on the first try! Yay, me!!! Of course, our dear Robin Lee Hatcher gave me a big hint on how to do that. Saved and noted!
Happy 2016. Hard to believe it’s already five days into the new year. I am fast approaching my first deadline of the year. On January 15th, I have to turn in the fourth book of my Men of Millbrook Lake series for Love Inspired. It’s been a fun series since I wanted to try something different by combing two Love Inspired romances with two Love Inspired Suspense boo...

I love Montana and the colder weather. I've never done well in the heat and since learning about having MS - it's really no wonder. My body just doesn't regulate the temperature in my body properly, so warm weather, stuffy Walmarts, and hot, humid climates just don't agree with me. I thank God for such a...

Bozeman definitely has its share of talented people and the orchestra that perform is no exception. I've always been a great fan of Beethoven's 9th anyway and this was such a neat way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
What's even more remarkable is the fact that Beethoven wrote this when he was almost completely deaf. When it was first performed in Vien...
