Latest Book: Kindred Spirits

I've recently published my September offering, "Kindred Spirits," which is Book 16 in the Fruithills Suspense Series at original books.

Even as a child, Jane had two passions: horses and the history of the local Indian tribe that had been one of the few who had not left on the "Trail of Tears." Her older sister Sally realized that her younger sibling was unusual and never had a close relationship with her until years later, when as a widow, she rejoined Jane and her older husband Bo on the family farm, then a thriving ranch to raise Jane's beloved Appaloosas. But still she wondered about Jane's insistence that the spirits of those who came before still lingered in the vast woods that surrounded their childhood farm.

  2. One Bite of the Apple: Jason wants to revive the lost art of orchards in his own town - but can the magic come back to the Fruithills?
  3. Blue Moon Murder: What short of murder could pry Roger loose from his mother's clutches, Emily wondered on the night of the full Blue Moon.

New Fruithills Suspense Series Book #11 - May Day Mayhem published

A new book has been added for the Fruithills Suspense Series:

  • May Day Mayhem is Book #11 in the Series. In a year with a milder than usual winter, followed by record breaking high spring temperatures, it was not surprising that the month of May brought about a more troubled way of life in the small town in the valley of the Fruithills. Yet, Helfina, a young healer from Wales brought a sense of calm to offset the unrest, until that too was met with opposing forces. This is Book 11 in the Fruithills Suspence Series.
Also NEW this month: Add your email address to the "Submit email" box on the left of this page and receive notice of new posts when new Fruithills Suspense Series are published.
