Gunslinger is now available

Tyler Wilson is an unexpected widower with four children under the age of seven.  With a large Texas cattle ranch to run, he realizes quickly he’s in over his head.  He reaches out in desperation and contracts a mail order nanny.
Miss Josephine Hill comes well experienced and highly recommended.  On paper, she seems to be the answer to his problem.  However, the incredibly gorgeous, young lady that steps off the train is nothing like the spinster he was expecting. 
The attraction is instant and strong.  It doesn’t take long for love to blossom and just when they believe they have a future, an enemy threatens everything. 
They desperately need something or someone to even the odds.  What if their only salvation is a gunslinger?

Holiday Traditions

   The holiday season has arrived just as it does every year.  For most of us the stress of overcrowded stores, secret Santa exchanges, work parties, and baking enough sweet treats to ensure everyone you've ever known will slip into a diabetic coma is what the holidays have become. Unfortunately, the sentimental traditions of our past end up being thrown to the side in an attempt to lesson the stress.
   I'm no different from anyone else who feels anxious attempting to make every Christmas perfect.  I always start the season out with the illusion that this year I'll pull off the perfect Christmas worthy of Martha Stewart's stamp of approval.  As the weeks fly by between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I quickly admit defeat and begin to eliminate the traditions of the past.
  There are only a few traditions I simply can't let loose.  When the tradition is the only thing left of the memory is when it's too precious to forget.
   Every December 23rd that I can remember of childhood, I spent the night at my grandparents' house.  Back in those days, we didn't have a thousand television stations or millions of Youtube videos to watch.  There were three national and one local broadcasting stations.  But somehow every single year, White Christmas always managed to come on late that night.  My Grandma would always make up a bed on the living room couch for me and she would stretch out on the opposite end and turn on the movie.  Grandma would fall asleep around ten minutes in but I would stay awake through the entire movie.  I loved the end when the characters would open the doors so everyone could see the snow!
   The reason I spent the night was because the next day, Christmas Eve, I would help my Grandma and Grandpa cook and bake for the family get-together that night.  My Mom was the youngest of seven kids and all of them would bring their families over that night to celebrate.  Unfortunately like many other families, the tradition stopped when the matriarch passed away.
   Even though my heartfelt memory should be the entire Duncan clan coming together on Christmas Eve, it's not.  I long for just one more viewing of White Christmas with my Grandma!

   My kids might be adults, but I don't care.  I'm holding on to one of the traditions that I started with my son many years ago.

Found Book Four in The Unloveable Series

Here's the cover for the fourth installment in The Unloveable Series!  What do you think?

Ireland and her two young sons have been isolated in the frozen tundra of Northern Alaska for the last four years.  Relying solely on herself, her family has managed to not only survive but thrive in the sub-zero climate.
Former marine and retired mercenary, Jericho Collins, is emotionally scarred from a lifetime of compromising his beliefs for his country and his clients.  He’s all business all the time.
When the powerful drug lord finally locates the family, they’re only option is to call in a favor.  Jericho and his men jump into action and race across Alaska to reach the Lewis family before it’s too late.  
Will Ireland and her boys be able to reach safety before time runs out?  Will the mercenary realize he’s capable of love before the trio gives up on him?

Hey!  I wanted to give a quick update on my western.  It's finished and in the hands of the publisher!  I hope to hear something in the next week.  I'm really excited about this new sub-genre.

My goal for this summer was to finish two stories and I reached it!

Hard Rock Author Signing

My mini-me and I had a great time at the Hard Rock Author Signing in Tulsa, Oklahoma!  I enjoyed meeting all of the readers and discussing our favorite genres and authors.  One reader asked who the next Bayou Shifter Coalition story would be about and when I told her, she figured out who his love interest would be.  That was really cool to discuss my book with a reader.

My next signing is Deliciously Dirty in Dallas in late August.  In the mean time, I'm working hard on my first western.

Found, Book Four in The Unloveable Story will be released on September 10th.  Jericho finally gets his story.

Summer Writing

Hey everyone!  It's summer break and I'm working hard at writing.  I just sent the fourth book in The Unloveable Series to Rebel Ink Press.  Now I wait to see if they like Jericho's story.

I'm in the zone so I've already started on my very first western, currently untitled.  I've always loved to read and watch westerns and decided I'd like to write one.

I'm going to be at three author events this summer.  I'll be at the Hard Rock in Tulsa, Oklahoma on July 9th.  I'll be one of the authors at Deliciously Dirty in Dallas August 27th. Finally, I'll head north again for the Thunder Author Event in Oklahoma City on September 10th.

I'm not going to get much rest this summer, but that's okay because I'm going to have a blast!

Bye for now!

Happy New Year!

Hey everyone!

     I hope all of you had a happy and safe new year.  I wanted to give an update on my writing.  I've spent the last couple of weeks finishing The Highlander's Gift!  For some reason this story was difficult to finish.  I started it last January but haven't been able to finish until recently.  I set it aside a couple of times while I wrote other books.  Needless to say, I'm thrilled the story finally came together so now I can continue with the Unloveable Series. 

See you soon!
