About the author

My perfect day: coffee shop; laptop; WiFi availability; java mocha; characters demanding their stories be told; a plot that comes together; and hours to live in an alternate reality.

Seriously, I have always loved reading, and now I love writing. As a preteen, I devoured Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys Mysteries, but when I reached my teen years the romance genre became my favorite, and that has never changed. After years of procrastinating, I tried my hand at writing and I've been doing so with a passion ever since. I have written over thirty romance novels and novellas in the genres of contemporary western, historical western, general contemporary, and fantasy. Because I hate saying goodbye to characters who have lived with me for months, I usually create a series so they can be revisited from book to book. I have also written a Young Adult novella titled "Fragile Hearts" using the pen name of Colleen Clay.

SOMEWHERE TO SPEND CHRISTMAS

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.

Not intended to be read as a standalone.

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.
