Thanks for stopping by. Kick off your shoes, stay awhile, and have a look around. I write stories about small towns with larger-than-life characters and unforgettable heroes and heroines who I hope will take up a permanent place in your heart. There’s always something good cooking in my books (I used to be a food writer), usually a mystery or two, and lots of tender romance.
Right now I’m working on my Nugget series about a railroad town in the Sierra Nevada that helps the lost and lonely find their way back to happiness . . . and love. In late 2016, I’ll be launching a spin-off series about a funky ski village in the Northern California mountains called Glory Junction. I can’t wait to share those stories with you. Enjoy your visit and feel free to drop me a line. I love to hear from readers.
This is the summer of Annie Sparks-at least according to her. No more supporting lazy jerks or coddling irresponsible family or taking care of anyone who doesn’t deserve her help. Instead she’s headed to an estate in a remote mountain town, to spend her summer with her boots covered in mud and her hands working the earth. Love is the last thing on her mind.
Nugget is a long way from Logan Jenkins’ old life as a Navy SEAL. But before he starts fresh in the private sector, he receives a bequest from a man he never knew: his biological father. To learn more about his background, Logan makes his way to his late father’s estate, where he is immediately knocked on his heels by an incredible woman with a heart of gold.
Annie’s not looking for a fling, and Logan knows Nugget can’t be forever, so falling in love should be impossible. But when they’re together, time stops, and suddenly the impossible seems like the only thinkable option . . .
