Creating Stories About Powerful Women, Our Similarities, and Love




Thank you for visiting!  


The February 18-20th 2022 Read Out Festival of Lesbian Literature was great and I'm looking forward to next year.  I was thankful to be included this year with a prerecorded "Pearl" video reading from  Cassethea of Merciaand thankful for all who participated and to those who organized the event.  There were so many fantastic authors and shared stories.  To see what it was all about, to find new authors you may be interested in, or to check out prior years events, you can click on Read Out.


Another place to find new books to read is Jae's 2022 Sapphic Book Bingo Reader's Challenge.  Similar to last year's challenge, each week Jae provides varied categories and great stories to choose from.  If you're up to the challenge, click hereAnd there's a bonus--book givaways to Bingo winners.


As for me, my newest book, Cassethea of Mercia, was released by Flashpoint Publications (who now owns Regal Crest Enterprises) on July 1, 2021.  I can't believe how much time has passed since its release.  It doesn't seem that long ago. I hope you've had a chance to read the book and enjoyed it.   And if you enjoyed it, or any book you read, please pass along the recommendations. :-)  

So, why do I write?  I write because I love to read and to create positive realities that bring enjoyment to others.   

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? For more information, click on Love Another Day.  

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 in sunny Florida and Captiva Island.  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. 

For me, 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 for everyone to delight in.

My deepest heartfelt thanks to all of you, and as always, stay safe and happy reading!
