Now I'm working on a brand new book in a new sub-genre for me: Women's Fiction. There'll be lots more on that to come. I'm also working on the fourth book in my "Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys" series--the first of the triplets' stories. I'm super excited about that!(less)

It was fascinating to research long-term injury and especially prosthetic limbs--because her hero, Alec Morrissey, is a wounded veteran and lost a leg. It's not a downer, story, though! I wanted to write a story about how we're all too obsessed with perfection in our society. Here are two imperfect people who find perfect love!(less)
