I'm a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of historical western romance. I live in the Texas Panhandle on land they call the Llano Estacado where the Native Americans and Comancheros once roamed and I can often hear their voices whispering in the wind. History is thick here with the ghosts of the people who settled this land. I love writing western historical romance and can't imagine doing anything else. I love a man in a Stetson and tight pants. Oh man! Those cowboys sure make my heart beat faster.

The first two of The McClains came out in 2002 and 2003. The titles are KNIGHT ON THE TEXAS PLAINS and THE COWBOY WHO CAME CALLING. I never got to finish that series so now I am. Sourcebooks is reissuing those earlier two and then the brand new Book #3. The third one skips ahead about seventeen years when Marley Rose (the baby Duel won in a poker game) is grown up. She discovers Duel McClain is not her father as she'd always believed. And Marley Rose finds a man who'll make her heart pound. Lots and lots of conflict!(less)

I let my mind wander. Before I ever place my hands on the keyboard, I visualize the scene I want to write. It comes into my mind like a movie. I see my characters, I hear them speak, as they act out the scene. Seeing them, hearing them, feeling what they feel inspires me in ways others can't imagine.(less)

Saving the Mail Order Bride (Outlaw Mail Order Brides, #2) by Linda Broday

The barrel-chested marshal smiled at Lenora. “Sorry that you have to endure this a bit longer, ma’am. He’s little more than a savage animal.” He said that like the outlaw had a case of rabies or something.

Dollard continued in a tone full of righteous contempt. “Why, he’s so mean the rattlesnakes won’t even come near him. I heard his own kin disowned him.”

“Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.”
Albert Einstein

“People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.”
A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

“Too beautiful for a drifter like me. You deserve a man who can buy you pretty dresses and take you dancing every week. But I’m damned glad it's me you're with tonight, me who'll be taking you home.”
Charlene Raddon, To Have And To Hold

“Today is only one day in all the days that will ever be. But what will happen in all the other days that ever come can depend on what you do today. It's been that way all this year. It's been that way so many times. All of war is that way.”
Ernest Hemingway
