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!

Luck o' the Irish! (Update!)


I want to share with you this lovely review featured on BOOKTALK WITH EILEEN. It explains much better than I can what readers find so intriguing about the story of Peg Shannon and Kendall Gregg.  Please check it out!



  Anna Margaret "Peg" Shannon is the consummate  Irish American princess--pampered, protected, and proud of her position in New York City society as heiress to her father's fortune.

    Only Kendall Gregg, a rising young British musician and the man Peg calls her Sir Galahad, knows the real Peg--the vulnerable, passionate young woman whose secrets he keeps as deeply hidden as his own. 

    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.
