What am I doing?

 I'm working on three novellas about mail order brides and their adventures, mishaps, and loves.
Caroline is from Richmond, VA. She leaves her war torn state with love letters in her hand only to find two other ladies with the same letters. The little town of Hickory Stick will never be the same when the three women and the man who wrote the letters collide.

These books are now on Amazon and ready to take you on adventures with stories of forgiveness, second chances and faith and  of course


Look where Liberty Belle is today!
Yep - she's on sale for .99   04-06-14 thru 04-13-14
Liberty Belle

Set in 1859 Denver, Liberty Belle is a story of finding freedom and forgiveness. A jilted bride, a wayward sheriff, a small boy, outlaws, and a gallows provide plenty of action, romance, and hope.

Liberty Longstreet was left at the altar, but that wasn’t the worst of her day. She awakens to the fact that she needs to declare independence from her controlling mother. Wanting her freedom and to find a man of her choosing, Libby leaves home for faraway Denver. She just doesn't count on being robbed, falling for a wayward sheriff, or being accused of murder.

Sheriff Wade Calder throws down his badge in a quest for revenge. Instead, he takes responsibility for his enemy’s young son. Wanting only to be free, Wade runs into Libby, and she wins what is left of his heart. Unfortunately, he has nothing to offer her until he picks up his badge. His honor is restored, but it may cost Libby her life.

Together they learn the cost of freedom and the wealth of forgiveness.


Love it When a Plan Comes Together

I love it when a plan comes together.
There are times when I become frustrated for my slow speed in getting  my books out. BUT there are other times when I see why. Yesterday was just one of those days. I learned some things. Important things. And they play an integral part in Golden Dreams story.

If I had plowed thru - I would have missed these points.  Can't tell you what they are yet, : ) You'll have to read the story.

Just a heads up that Golden Dreams now is on the fast track.  Finally.  The plan has come together and soon you can read about Katy and Rev as they learn they must go through their past to reach their dreams.

Coming Soon


Check it out!

I've got news!

No, I haven't finished Golden Dreams yet.  Working on it though.

The Dream is coming alive!

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have it on good authority it is not a train! Have had to really tighten and change up this book. She was the first book I finished. Enough said. As a writer, I am still growing. Learning. Changing the way I write.

Today - I decided I really do need an outline of some sort to keep me on track. Hopefully this will help me get new books out sooner. After Golden Dreams, I have another western ready for editing. Bounty. 
and then I have a Contemporary Romance - Down to Earth that is ready for editing.

After Golden Dreams is finished, completed, polished and sent to Amazon, I will work on Bounty and a new idea I have for a series of novellas. We the People - a dystopian view of what might happen in the future of our country.  I really hope these books are fiction. : )

Well, back to the keyboard.

Thanks for following and have a blessed day.

FIRST 2 Paragraphs of Golden Dreams
Golden Dreams    

Missouri-Kansas Border
Town of Second Chance
April 1866 

Katy Gilbreth hugged her arms tight across her chest to stop the shakes. The tremors that dug deep inside her. The anxious fear she’d miss the wagons headed west. She shot a gaze heavenward. “Why must you ruin my life?”
No answer. There never was. So she waited for what promised to be a beautiful sunset. The only thing she liked about Second Chance. Well, that and Zeke Dawson. He’d rescued her from The Midnight Saloon. Why, she’d yet to understand. He certainly wasn’t like the men she’d dealt with in the past. In the months she’d been with him, he’d treated her like a daughter, cared for her, and asked for nothing in return. 


On the edit trail

Yep, I am hard at work. Pages fluttering around. Story plots
and character's voices rambling in my head.

Katy is having a rough time getting Rev to come around.
He's got his own problems.

Of course I am making sure they have a few surprises in store.
They both have a lot to learn. 

Life is not easy
Even in the fictional world.

Back to the keyboard.

Golden Dreams
Coming soon


What is taking so long?

Still working on

So - what is the problem, you might ask?
I answer - a little of this and a little of that
But the main reason Golden Dreams is not out yet
She is not ready.

I am back at the keyboard, strengthening my characters.
Working hard to make the story as good and exciting as I can.
I write for you
Even more, I write for the Lord.

To honor Him. 
His gift.

So I ask for prayer. 
Prayer for all the Christian Authors who
Struggle to put fingers to keyboard and give the
best stories, write out their hearts to encourage, teach,
entertain,  give joy and hope to readers everywhere.

I love what I do.
