About this author

I’ve raised and loved Siberian huskies over 40 years. My last husky, Xander, died recently at fourteen. His death prompted me to begin researching then writing the Watch Eyes Trilogy. Before attempting this YA frontier series, I wrote historical romance set primarily in the Old West. My six published novels to date are with Five Star, Gale/Cengage. The Watch Eyes Trilogy is set in the Arctic West.

Though retired from nursing, the time I have to write is precious little. I’ve taken the coveted 4:00 a.m. slot. Sorry folks.

My best to you, readers all,

Three to five months is the average time it takes for research, and within that timeframe ideas begin to come forward and don't stop until THE END.(less)

Admittedly, I’m a ghost town girl at heart. This has never been clearer to me than in the recent weeks spent in the Colorado Rockies where I raised my children and my Siberian huskies.
