When I'm not writing or editing for other authors, leaning up against a tree reading, or making angels in the snow with my grandchildren. I am the proud mother of six children, a proud grandmother of 17 grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. Until last December, this home was also graced by three wonderful dogs: two little dogs arrived when my daughter moved home, and I rescued a senior Golden Retriever from a puppy mill to give her a forever home. My beautiful Golden Retriever passed over the Rainbow Bridge just before Christmas.

Most days, I live a quiet life in Colorado with my daughter who moved home three years ago after she was diagnosed with MS. It's a joy when her granddaughter (and my great-granddaughter) Lilly is here during the week as she goes to school nearby.

The picture above was taken at my son's wedding near Estes Park, Colorado.

Peace to you and those you love,

P.S. During this difficult time, with Covid-19 infecting and taking down so many people we love and some we don't even know, if you can stay at home - do so. We are all in this together.

A Christmas Love Story

Come Back To Me At Christmas is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, and most vendors through this universal link.

His Stetson still sat on the table next to his keys by the back door and his boots, brushed clean and polished, stood next to hers. Some things never change.

Patty misses her husband dearly and dreams of him coming home for Christmas. When she shares her dream with her children, they become increasingly worried as their mother’s present day life and her cherished memories begin to blur.

Her children gather to decide how to help her handle her disappointment and comfort her when he doesn't show up—after all, it was only a dream.

Convinced she was losing her grip on reality and shouldn't live alone any longer, they decide to wait until after the holidays before making any major changes in her life.

But Christmas Day brings a shocking surprise—to everyone but Patty. This is a funny, heartwarming, and touching story that will have you believing in miracles.

A second chance at love, a mystery, and a gift that keeps on giving.

When Detective Jonathan Wyndham shows up at the Masterson mansion to investigate a death, the last person he expects to answer the door is the woman he almost married until she nearly got him fired. He couldn’t keep her from interfering with his crime scenes and his job was on the line when they split up.

Miranda Becket, amateur sleuth with mystery books stacked floor to ceiling, is good at what she does; she just doesn’t have the credentials to be doing it. After finding her employer dead, she’d already begun her own investigation. When Jonathan arrives, looking more handsome than ever, her heart flutters.

Detective Wyndham concludes the elderly woman died of natural causes. Miranda disagrees and sets out to uncover the truth. Twists and turns complicate the case. Leads grow cold, and old feelings they both thought were long buried resurface. Will he stop dismissing her and the little notebook she carries around? Or, will Miranda be one step ahead of him, causing the same unhappy ending they had years ago?
