I'm the author of seventy-something novels, including romance, women's fiction and mystery. When We Were Sisters debuted in June 2016, a stand alone novel about two foster sisters traveling back into their past together. I loved writing it and love the cover my publisher chose.

I'm also excited about my recent series, Goddesses Anonymous, which started with One Mountain Away and was followed by Somewhere Between Luck and Trust. The third book in the series, A River Too Wide, came out in July 2014. The Color of Light debuted in August 2015. Will there be more? We'll see.

I'm also putting up my newly edited romance backlist and love re-reading and updating them a bit.

I just stumbled on these questions. I think I need to find out if I can be alerted when questions are asked. In the meantime? Sunset Bridge was the final of the three Happiness Key books. I wanted the reader to imagine the rest. But I started them all on their own happy endings. I'm so glad you enjoyed the trilogy.(less)

I'm an adoptive parent and got interested in adoption first, then child welfare in general. I was on the board of our county child welfare program and got a real taste for the good/bad and in between of the way children are cared for and about. I also worked for Head Start coordinating parent involvement and social services. It's always been an interest but I haven't tackled it in fiction until now.(less)

I hope to. My publisher has the final say, but right now we have tentatively scheduled a novella in a Christmas anthology. We'll see.
