About

I'm most recently a writer.  In the six plus decades of my life, I've been a wife, mother, grandmother, Jill of all trades though mistress of but a few, and most of the time pretty content with my lot.  As a much younger person, I believed I was called to write, but life and living distracted me for most of those decades.  An unwilling transplant from the South,  twenty years ago I unintentionally landed in the geographical center of the US.  Writing came about in part due to the unwillingness, I expect.  When caring for family, gardening, and renovating a century-old house failed to provide sufficient creative outlets, I turned to the one thing I always intended to do.  Eight titles later, I'm grateful I found myself while Lost in the Plains!

Shannon's Daughter--FREE Already!


In the past, I've held out for several months after releasing a new title before offering the Kindle version free.  Oddly enough, I'm champing at the bit to give away this particular book. I'm anxious to have you read it, and give me an idea of how you like (I hope!) it.  Everything about this book is different from the others I've written, so why not change things up here too? 
So. . .(drumroll, please) beginning Sunday, January 19, Shannon's Daughter will be FREE for Kindle.  You'll have three whole days to download your copy before it goes back to full price.  I really hope you'll take time to read it, not let it sink to the bottom of your huge list of one-click freebies.  (Hey, I'm a Kindle owner too!  I know how this works.) And I hope you'll leave a review, honest but gentle, if you're so inclined.  If you follow this blog, you already know my insecurities around this book.  I like it, but I have no clue how readers, especially those of the Miracle at Valley Rise books, will feel about it.  Maybe some of you can help me out with that?  Thanks!  I knew I could count on  you!
     

The last thing he expected to find in Ireland that summer was the inspiration to go on with his life, and certainly not in the form of an adolescent heiress. 

New York socialite Peg Shannon has everything—wealth, position, beauty and limitless prospects for happiness.  Or so the world believes. 
Aspiring London violinist Kendall Gregg is talented, handsome and charming.  While hardly well-to-do, he has connections and ambition which should take him far.  Or so it appears.

Thrown together briefly by a twist of fate, Kendall quickly becomes young Peg’s hero, while Peg proves to be Kendall’s unlikely salvation.  Through the decades, their deepening passion and shared secrets forge an enduring bond, destining them for a love affair that comes but once in a lifetime.

Set in the mid-twentieth century, Shannon’s Daughter chronicles the complex relationship between two people constrained by family responsibility and a tragic secret, while delving into the history of one of the most intriguing characters in the Miracle at Valley Rise series.
