I’m delighted you stopped by for a visit.
If you’re looking for 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.
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. Whether writing about the Civil War or America’s current War on Terror, my’ heroes are everyday men and women who do extraordinary things. From Civil War spies to modern-day women living quiet lives of desperation, I write books with the goal of keeping you thinking about the characters long after the last page is turned.
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!
