The sixth in the Silver Rush series is out as of April 3, 2018.
It was an interesting adventure to move my protagonist, Inez Stannert, from 1880 Leadville, Colorado, to 1881 San Francisco, California. The move also meant leaving some beloved secondary characters behind, so followers of the series will see some new faces in the newest book.
Still, Leadville is never far from Inez's mind, nor from... Read more of this blog post »

Topics Mentioning This Author

Raymond Chandler
“There was a desert wind blowing that night. It was one of those hot dry Santa Anas that come down through the mountain passes and curl your hair and make your nerves jump and your skin itch. On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight. Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife and study their husbands' necks. Anything can happen. You can even get a full glass of beer at a cocktail lounge.”
Raymond Chandler, Red Wind: A Collection of Short Stories

Ann Parker Hello Rosemary!
Thank you! I love to hear that readers are "taken away" for a while when they read my books. I consider that the highest compliment! :-)
Here's hoping your mother enjoys the next two as well...


Rosemary Ann, my mother, who is staying with me to recover from hip surgery, absolutely loves Silver Lies! She is enjoying lots of reading time, and I'm enjoying sharing great books with her. Now, it's time to add Iron Ties and Leaden Skies to our home library. Thanks for brightening up Mama's days.


Rosemary Ann, what a delight to see you on Goodreads! I hope we meet up at the HNS conference in June.
