I've lived six lives in one and it all shows up in the books I write, one way or another.

I was always a risk taker and broke mustangs at thirteen years old in Oregon. I learn to break them with love, not threat or pain.

At 17 years old, I picked night-crawlers (worms) out in our Oregon orchards from 9pm to midnight, every night. I earned enough money to buy my school clothes and book. I also plunked down $600 to a flight company at the Medford, Oregon airport and asked them to teach me...a fly. I soloed in 12 hours, which is average. From that time until I left for the US Navy at 18, I had accrued 39 hours of flight time in my Cessna 150 single engine airplane.

I was in the US military and was an AG3 (weather forecaster). There was

Hi Kelly
I'm with you! I've worked hard at my website: to do just what many of my readers have asked for. There, you'll find all my series to date (115 books and counting), titles and which books to read and in what order. If you have any other questions, just "contact" me on my website and I'll try to answer your question. I have a lot of series :-). Enjoy reading them ;-) Warmly, Lindsay McKenna(less)

To answer about the novellas to come:
July 25, 2016
SECRET DREAM, Delos Series, Novella, 1B1 (follow-up on Cav-Lia from Nowhere To Hide)

September 29, 2016
UNBOUND PURSUIT, Delos Series, Novella, 2B1, (follow-up on Tal and Wyatt from Tangled Pursuit)

are the follow-up novellas to Nowhere to Hide and Tangled Pursuit.

In 2017:
 March 1, 2017
NEVER ENOUGH, Novella 3B1, (follow-up on Matt-Dara from Forged in Fire)
May 23, 2017
DREAM OF ME, Novella 4C2, (follow-up to Gage and Alexa from Broken Dreams, Book 4) 

The wait will be worth it, in my opinion ;-). These are 35,000 words long for each of them, and about 7-9 chapters each.

These novellas will become pre-order as soon as I can get them up after the've gone through the editorial pipeline for iTunes/Apple. For Kindle/Amazon they only allow a pre-order 90 days ahead of the actual publication date. I'll be putting them out on as well., unfortunately, doesn't do pre-orders, so you have to wait to buy these the day of the publication date.

Another good thing to do is sign up for my newsletter at (green button on front page--just click on it and fill in the blanks), because it comes out monthly to my subscribers, and you'll know what book or novella from the Delos series is available at that time.

Hope this helps. But if you have other questions, please ask! ;-)

“I always call that the year it rained in my life. That was one of Maud’s euphemisms. There were rainy years, fertile years and sunshine years. The rainy ones were when your life cycles brought losses of some sorts. Fertile years were years of learning and growing and reaching out. Sunshine years were few and far between, but when they came, she told me to soak myself with their happy radiance. They were reward years to her, and they made up for all the suffering, pain and growth we’d persevered through.”
Lindsay McKenna, A Measure of Love

“THE SUN FELT good on Cathy’s face.”
Lindsay McKenna, Danger Close

“Shiloh had never seen a man who was a hunter. But she saw one now. There was an intense feeling around Roan, raw and untamed, as he studied her, his nostrils flaring to catch her scent. He ruthlessly dug into her opening eyes, reading her, trying to understand where she was at within herself and what she wanted from him.
“This is your call,” he said, his voice low and guttural.”
Lindsay McKenna, Wind River Wrangler
