My grandfather served in the Navy in WWII and my great-uncle was a B-17 pilot, so I grew up hearing stories about the war and was always fascinated by the time period. Passion for history drives me to research and make my stories as authentic as possible. Through my novels, I hope to honor the real-life heroes both in the military and on the Home Front.(less)

Julia Reffner You're welcome. And yes, I'm loving A Distant Melody so far! Can't wait for A Memory Between Us!

I'm glad to see you gave Rain Song and Chasing Lilacs 5 stars, 2 books I've very much been looking forward to reading. Why do I accumulate these so fast and then can never keep up?!

Thanks, Melissa! As for Ray and Helen, you'll have to read Book 3. However, I will tell you Ray and Helen are the hero and heroine. Whether or not they end up together... :)


Melissa Just finished A Distant Melody...I LOVED it!! Looking forward to Jack and Ray's stories. Hoping Ray might end up with Helen? =)

Jack and Ruth, and it was a blast to write - their banter just flowed. All I did was transcribe it :) I'm going through the galleys right now, so we're right on schedule.
