About

My photo

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!

Thirty Days of Giving--The final days


We're down to the wire and what better way to end this month of giving than back where we started! For the next two days, if you missed out the first time, help yourself to a FREE copy of Shannon's Daughter. An unlikely love story with an unusual ending, this book details the early life of one of the Valley Rise  characters, the enigmatic Peg Shannon. There is also an audiobook featuring the extremely talented Matthew Lloyd Davies. Matt does a fantastic job of bringing to life the characters, telling their story with a delightful mix of accents and portraying the intense emotions of the love affair between Peg and the dashing English violinist, Kendall Gregg. I hope you'll check out the sample when you download your book.
