Creating Stories About Powerful Women, Our Similarities, and Love




Thank you for visiting!  



My most recent novel, Cassethea of Mercia, was released by Flashpoint Publications on July 1, 2021.  It's an escape into medieval England;  a story about inner and physical strength, growing up, and women fighting for those who can't fight for themselves.  It's about love that has no boundaries.  It's adventure and fantasy. 

In 2022 I provided a prerecorded video reading from Cassethea of Mercia for the Read Out Festival of Lesbian Literature.  Each year the festival highlights so many fantasic authors and shared stories. To see what Read Out is all about, to find new authors, or to check out previous and upcoming events, click on Read Out.

Prior to Cassethea of Mercia, my first novel, Love Another Day, was published by Regal Crest Enterprises and was recognized in 2012 with an Alice B. Readers Lavender Award certificate (Alice B. Awards). The story takes place in Grand Teton National Park where Park Ranger Samantha Takoda Tyler meets photojournalist Halie Walker and sparks fly, but not in the way you might imagine...or do they?  

White Dragon is the sequel to Love Another Day and picks up a year after Sam and Halie first met, but all is not rosy. Troubles build. Danger looms.  The couple faces hate, but also unexpected support.  To read an excerpt, please click here.

My third novel, A Deeper Blue, which is unrelated to my first two stories, takes place on Captiva Island in Florida.  The part-owner of Island Water Adventures, Alexandra Jean Rey, finds her life changing in unexpected ways--all triggered by the sound of one woman's laughter. 

Besides enjoying reading, the outdoors, and writing, I love healthy foods.  If you're a vegetarian or looking to reduce the amount of meat in your diet, drop by the Veggie Corner for a few tasty vegetarian recipes.  And better yet, if you have a recipe to share, please do so and I'll post it on the Veggie Corner page.


If you'd like to contact me, please do so at: waggintails3 at verizon dot net (spelled out to prevent spam).  If you liked any or all of my books, please pass the recommendations along.  It's one of the best ways you can help authors.
My deepest, heartfelt thanks to all of you, and as always, stay safe and happy reading!
