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.
