I’m delighted you stopped by for a visit.

If you’re looking for a classic fiction with a touch of romance, you’re in the right place! My books, whether historical or contemporary, are clean, old-fashioned love stories that satisfy avid romance enthusiasts, while containing enough action, adventure, and suspense to appeal to male readers as well.

When I started writing historical fiction novels, I never intended to cross over to military romance or Christian fiction, but that’s where my muse (and God) has taken me. The themes I write about are honor, courage, duty—and of course love, the type of enduring love that can be found in the pages of the old classics. My books are often set on a battlefield, but they are interwoven with suspense and emotional stories of attraction, conflict, and courage that inspire patriotism and a sense of faith.

So what will you find here? Characters from the past and present who are dealing with formidable challenges, but somehow find the courage to overcome them. We live in tumultuous times, but people of honor, principle, character and integrity do exist. You’ll meet them in my books. And I hope they’ll convince you that enduring love and happy endings are possible.

Thanks for dropping by. I’m glad you’re here!
