"If your life is a mess but you’re in the woods, does it matter?"-Daisy Prescott; Happy Trail

Hey Ya'll!

Rob put in a swing for me. Yay! I've wanted one in the woods for forever so I'm thrilled to have a place to read outdoors. Of course, I already have a little patch of poison ivy on my foot, but that's how I roll. It ain't summertime if I'm not itching! Ha!

Excerpt: A Pirate at Pembroke (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Apr 28, 2018 08:53AM
Description: Keeping company with a reputed pirate is one thing, but falling in love with him could ruin the eccentric Crestwood family for good... Sophie Crestwood is never going to catch a husband. Her father is a gossip, her mother has her nose in a book, and little Jack has shamefully been dismissed from boarding school. Worst of all, a pirate moves next door into Pembroke Hall. When Sophie's sent to a matchmaking party at a neighboring estate, the pirate from Pembroke arrives and distracts everyone from the summer festivities. Unguarded, her feelings about the mysterious Captain Murdock bloom into a trusted friendship that Sophie fears may come to mean more than anyone would ever suspect.
Excerpt: Proper Attire (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Apr 07, 2017 05:51PM
Description: Pressured to marry for money, Julia Scott flees England and a cruel stepmother to determine if the West Indies is the paradise of her dreams. Attacked by pirates and desired by island natives, the only person she can trust is John Smith -- if that's her rescuer's true name. Reaching her uncle's station in English Harbor, Julia must find a way to face her feelings and deal with her traitorous family, a dashing new suitor, and the guardian angel, John Smith, who has no qualms sporting counterfeit names and less than what is proper attire.
Excerpt: Death Cheater (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: Athena Gray lives vicariously through her sister because people in general avoid her. Whether it's strange things like dead butterflies fluttering to life, or the time she saved her dying grandpa just by willing him to live, Athena knows that she is different. The only person who doesn't seem to think so is Dan, the most popular boy on Omega High School's baseball team. But even Dan can't understand the reason she acts haunted, until a spirit roaming the local historic burial mounds takes an interest in people Athena cares about.

Excerpt: TURTLE SOUP (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Sep 10, 2010 12:13PM
Description: Sea turtles may be endangered but after an encounter with marine biologist, Jack Brandon, nothing will stop Sara Hart from naming her deli, Turtle Soup. When Jack takes a job at the nearby Georgia Aquarium, Sara finds the environmental poster boy at her door, hungry and carrying a chip on his shoulder. Neither thinks the other has what it takes, until a scuba class reveals what lies beneath the surface.
