WELCOME TO SOMEWHERE, OREGON

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!


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.

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 FALL IN LOVE


Is there somewhere that the edges of reality and fantasy overlap? (A Beauty and the Beast Tale)


Saul Flanahan, a physically challenged young man, has lived an off-grid, solitary life with his parents and enjoyed their tales about mermen and mermaids inhabiting the oceans. As a child he believed their stories, but now in his mid-twenties, he indulges their whimsical proclivities because of his love for them. However, when a beautiful young woman "supposedly" washes ashore and claims to be the Princess of the Pacific, he is sure that his parents have hired a consummate actress. As to their motive, he hasn't a clue.


Raymond Johnson, III, decides to expand his non-profit veteran's organization headquartered in Portland, Oregon, to the charming and friendly coastal town of Somewhere, the birthplace of his deceased grandfather. While dining at Mama Pink's, the most popular eatery in town, he meets a cute, but clumsy waitress named Suzy, who trips and dumps his order in his lap. Rather than berate her, however, he hires her as his personal assistant. When Raymond meets Suzy's grandmother, he is confronted by a mystery involving his grandfather. Soon Raymond and Suzy are trying to piece together the senior Raymond's reason for leaving Somewhere in 1950.

Romance on the Ranch Series (Books 1 - 3): Dream Kisses; Honey Kisses; Baby Kisses

Dream Kisses
Dream Kisses kicks off the series when Sarah Carter, pen name, Mims Murphy, meets Sage Tanner at Imaginings Publishing while he's posing for the cover of her soon-to-be-released romance novel. After being bulldozed into a coffee break with him by her publisher, an embarrassing incident upsets Sarah and she walks out. Of course, fate has a wonderful way of intervening in matters of the heart. After deciding her book needs realism, she signs up for "dude" lessons at Lazy M Dude Ranch. Imagine her chagrin when she discovers the owner of the ranch is none other than Mr. Tanner himself! Yup.

Honey Kisses
Ann Hackstetter first met Jackson Martinez while vacationing at Lazy M Dude Ranch with her husband and teenage son. Part of the "dude" package included a night of fun at Boot Bustin' Barn. Ann suspects that Sage Tanner, owner of Lazy M, bribed Jackson to dance with her as a way of making her inattentive husband jealous. Little did she realize the dance would awaken emotions long suppressed. Of course, she has no outlet for those emotions. Now, five years later, she's a widow--a destitute widow. Over the years her son's friendship with Sage's daughter has blossomed and now they're getting married. Wedding responsibilities have temporarily taken Ann's mind off her desperate situation. At the reception, Jackson asks her to dance and reawakens those emotions. He makes her feel twenty-one, instead of forty-one.

Baby Kisses
Tooty Townsend bore a child at the age of sixteen. Now, four years later, she has her hands full raising Harris and trying to make a living. Reclusive author, Maxwell Henry, is looking to hire a personal assistant while he's in Colorado finishing up his latest suspense thriller. Sarah Tanner, stepmother to Tooty's best friend, Julie, and a friend of Miles, recommended her to the author. Unfortunately, Harris climbed onto the guy's lap at Julie and Jacob's wedding reception and asked for a ride in his wheelchair. Then he asked him to marry his mommy and become his daddy! Tooty needs a job and she's swallowing her pride to apply for this one.
