Now I'm working on a brand new book in a new sub-genre for me: Women's Fiction. There'll be lots more on that to come. I'm also working on the fourth book in my "Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys" series--the first of the triplets' stories. I'm super excited about that!(less)

It was fascinating to research long-term injury and especially prosthetic limbs--because her hero, Alec Morrissey, is a wounded veteran and lost a leg. It's not a downer, story, though! I wanted to write a story about how we're all too obsessed with perfection in our society. Here are two imperfect people who find perfect love!(less)

Fun and light-hearted very short stories about a unique, somewhat wacky, but very lovely Union of Fairy Godmothers and the people they guide into true love (with a little magic, of course!) I recommend it for super-fun bedtime reading!
