The first 2 books in my A More Perfect Union series of American Revolution romances
Coming very soon are the first two books in the A More Perfect Union series. I've wanted to share these stories for some time, and finally have a publisher who loves them as much as I do! Watch for them at all major digital bookstores and in bricks and mortar bookstores! Check out my Appearances column to the left for upcoming opportunities to get your copy and have it signed by me!

Releasing October 27, 2014!
So excited to see the sequel to Traces hitting the virtual and real shelves as of October 27! Remnants is another "haunting" good time at Twin Oaks Plantation. You won't believe what trouble Paulette conjures up! Only a strong man could help her fight her way through the many challenges that ensue. Remnants will be available in both digital and paperback formats.

I'm doing a Goodreads Giveaway of 10 copies of Traces through the end of September. Hop over there if you'd like to enter for a chance to win.

What's it about? Here's the short description:

Architect Meredith Reed aims to demolish her family plantation to bury her grief. But her conniving sister, a hunky lawyer, and a spectral Lady all have other ideas. Can she carry out her plan before they teach her the lessons of family and love she so desperately needs?

Howdy! I'm glad you're here!

I'm a romantic at heart. Pure and simple. I see the romance or love story in just about everything. I also love to delve into the mysterious, the inexplicable nuances of living in this world of ours. Add to that my love of history, as I've grown older I've noticed the interconnectedness of the present with the past and how that informs the future. Thus my interest in romantic historical and/​or supernatural stories!

I will be releasing a series of romantic historical stories set in Charleston, SC, in 1782.

For my young adult fans, Hometown Heroines: True Stories of Bravery, Daring, and Adventure, is an updated re-release of a collection of 19 historical short stories based on real American girls living in the 1800s who have landmarks across America dedicated to each of them. On April 14, 2014, the 2012 edition was awarded the Literary Classics' Seal of Approval, saying in part, "The CLC Seal of Approval is a designation reserved for those books which uphold the rigorous criteria set forth by the Literary Classics review committee, a team comprised of individuals with backgrounds in publishing, editing, writing, illustration and graphic design." In addition, the 2001 edition received two awards: an Honorable Mention in the 2003 Writer’s Digest International Self-Published Book Awards contest, and an Honorable Mention in the 2000 Writer’s Digest Writing Competition for “Minnie’s Promise,” the story of Minnie Freeman’s heroic rescue of her students during the Blizzard of 1888 in Nebraska.
