Author of sensual contemporary western romance with strong family ties, paranormal romance on occasion, and romantic fiction—sometimes writing sensual love stories with less conflict and drama--other times dramatic and sexy for a more emotional and compelling read.

Early days of reading romance novels and women's fiction laid the groundwork for me to take up the pen and write my own memorable love stories.

I admit, I'm a true "romantic at heart." Other writers have always been my inspiration.

Listening to the music I’ve chosen for that book, usually gets me inspired to get back to writing. Another thing I do is make a list of about ten things that can happen in the story. Things that haven't been plotted out. Some are silly and off-the-wall ideas I’ll never use, but other ideas can come from this list.

I’ve also started book number four in the Double Dutch Ranch Series. Since all three brothers have their own book now, it's time to revisit some of the other characters to see what they have to offer.

“When I love, I love with everything within me.”

Seeing him with his child, this was obvious. Did he mean…yes, he meant exactly what he said, and it was like he wanted her to know it went much deeper than only with his child. That whatever he loved, he loved with everything inside of him. “I sense that about you, Tristan. Your actions and words are heartfelt.”
Mary J. McCoy-Dressel, Cowboy Boss and his Destiny

“Howdy, ma'am. You always talk to yourself?”

Velia glanced up into bright eyes, as blue as the flame on a cigarette lighter, belonging to a man standing in front of her desk wearing a cowboy hat tipped back on his head.”
Mary J. McCoy-Dressel, Howdy, Ma'am

“I wasn't raised to let a woman walk through a dimly lit parking lot alone. Wasn't born in a cornfield, you know.”

Velia turned. “No, I didn't know. So, you're quite a gentleman. Don't we sound like a good pair—the devil woman and the gentleman?”
Mary J. McCoy-Dressel, Howdy, Ma'am
