Welcome and Thanks for Stopping By!

If you enjoy escaping into a good book, you’ve come to the right place!

Feel free to take a look around. I write books in which honor, courage, duty—and of course, love—are major themes. From the Revolutionary War to America’s current War on Terror, my’ heroes are everyday men and women who do extraordinary things.

Whether historical or contemporary, my novels are clean, old-fashioned stories that satisfy avid romance enthusiasts, while containing enough action, adventure, and suspense to appeal to male suspense and thriller readers as well.

So pull up a chair, pour yourself a cup of coffee, and take a look around. I’m glad you’re here!
