Dr. Thomas Matthews lost his wife to a mysterious illness and now his daughter is showing the same symptoms. He is desperate to find a cure. In an unexpected turn of events, he overhears two outlaws discussing a woman known as the Healing Woman of the Red Rocks. She supposedly has an uncanny ability to heal. Thomas gains the confidence of the outlaws and they give him directions to a place known as the "red rocks" in Arizona Territory.

Tana Raven Sees makes her home in a valley surrounded by red monoliths. Although others claim she lives alone, she is never alone. Not only do the forest animals come to her when they are injured or ill, but she is often visited in dreams by her deceased grandmother, Frannie. For years, Frannie has been foretelling of a man who will seek her out...and make her cry. After waiting so long, she decides her grandmother is mistaken. That is, until the day he arrives with his daughter.

About the author

Healing Woman of the Red Rocks is a sweet romance, but also a tale of adventure with cameo appearances by real-life Old West outlaws and good guys. Some of the characters making appearances are well known, others, not so much. It was fun imagining conversations historical personages would have had with my make-believe characters. However, this story is not intended to be a history lesson. It has been written solely for entertainment. There is also an element of fantasy to the story in that injured and sick animals are drawn to the healing woman.

And yes, the "red rocks" referred to in this tale is Sedona, Arizona. However, the time frame is before Sedona was settled and named.

Red Rocks Trilogy: Healing Woman of the Red Rocks; Song of the Red Rocks; Spirit Tree of the Red Rocks

After enduring a media-frenzied divorce covered by the tabloids, country singer Sunny Sundance is ordered by her doctor to rest. During her sabbatical, she even considers retiring at the height of an illustrious career. When her attorney calls about a journal and tintype photo dating back to the 1800s he received from a man who claims the artifacts belonged to Sunny's ancestors, she is intrigued, but not convinced. After reading the journal, however, she knows beyond any doubt that the claims are true. Since her career is on hold, she drives incognito to the Village of Oak Creek, a small community located near the beautiful city of Sedona, with the intent of buying back her family's homestead. Little does she realize she is about to begin an amazing journey into an unbelievable family legacy.

For Jason Grant, purchasing the land he once trespassed and played on as a child is a dream come true. He considers the property with its magnificent views of red monoliths to be the most beautiful place on earth. When famous singer Sunny Sundance shows up offering to buy his land at whatever price, he refuses. But when she threatens to force him off of it, he is outraged. Having recently gone through a turbulent marriage and divorce, he is in no mood to deal with a woman he considers to be pampered and selfish. Only later, after a journey of discovery into the past with Sunny, does he realize how wrong assumptions can be.
 Jazmine yearns for an assignment in the human realm. To that end, she attends Fairies-in-Training School in Flitter Town. After three classes, she has yet to be selected for assignment. Sadly, she knows she will soon be returned to her clan, the Fragrant Flowers, to resume her duties as a jasmyster. It's not that she doesn't love her job of keeping her namesakes fragrant, but a human assignment has always been her dream. Unexpectedly, Boss-at-the-Top selects her for a very important task.

Ryan Lucas is grieving the loss of his wife and unable to connect emotionally with his eight year old son. Both their hearts have holes the size of the universe in them. During a short drive from his home in Bend, Oregon to his office in Sunriver, he almost crashes into a woman following deer across the highway. He can't believe anyone would be so reckless. He screeches to the side of the road and jumps out of his car to lecture her. Her beautiful uptilted eyes keep distracting him. They're not quite blue and not quite lavender.

Young Jake Lucas just wants his dad to spend time with him. He desperately misses his mother because she's dead. And although his father is very much alive, he spends more time at his office than with Jake. Since his father ignores him, Jake turns his attention toward his new neighbor. After he sees her spying on him, he decides to spy on her. Snagging his dad's binoculars and hiding in his tree house, he watches her through her dining room window. Maybe she's with the FBI or CIA? Actually, she's pretty boring until he witnesses something impossible. Then he wonders if she's a witch, which makes him wonder if she's a good witch or a bad one.

Nestled in a cove on Oregon's coastline, the town of Somewhere is charming, picturesque, inhabited by townsfolk who love their community—and teeming with mystery. You are invited to join the heroes and heroines of Somewhere as they solve mysteries, discover romance, experience inexplicable phenomena, and fight injustice—just the usual stuff!


Is there somewhere that wishes come true?

When the bus Sunny Fairbanks is traveling on stops for a layover in the small seaside town of Somewhere, she decides to walk on the beach at sunrise—and falls in love with the area. Her decision as to whether to remain in Somewhere for a few days, or continue northward, is unexpectedly made for her when she steps on a shard of glass. A young man jogging along the shoreline comes to her aid and she is forced to do something she hates—accept help.

Vicky Patterson continues to be amazed that her brother was able to send her a message from beyond the grave through her friends Faith Bennison and Baxter Hope. And that message has set her free from a lifetime of guilt. In fact, she's so free, that she takes on the task of heading up a group of protesters against Wainwright Resorts, the corporation that wants to purchase a portion of the town's public beach and build a world class resort that will, of course, destroy the quaintness of her community. She's angry with Michael Wainwright, III, and intent on stopping his plans.

Gabby Hope, a widow, and owner of Hope Bed & Breakfast, wants to get Leo Constanzo, a widower, out of her system, so she proposes something utterly inappropriate and is shocked when he agrees.

Belinda Hope, who died decades earlier, kept a diary that revealed the happenings behind her daughter's disappearance, and then her own, years later. Now that she's ready to step into the light of eternity, she needs to get a message to someone on the other side about where the diary is hidden.
