Passionate stories. Transformative Love.
To become the man he’s meant to be, one cowboy will have to be the man he never wanted anyone to know he was…
He’ll give up everything for his immortal lover…except his humanity.
Two dudes walk into a bookstore…
Nash is the reliable one in the Holly family, the guy everyone counts on to keep things going.
Eternal Optimist? Or idiot. I know that nothing will replace the dog I lost. I know this. (She was only sleeping in that picture. Not…you know.) It’s not like I think that if I get another dog he or she will fill the hole Pepper left behind. Yet our house is dog friendly. We have space inside […]
It WAS Awesome! I got to play with handcuffs and a thermal imaging device. I got to see a K-9 officer (Franz) and his handler in action.

If anyone asks her how a wife and mother of four can find time for a writing career, she’ll answer, “It’s amazing what you can accomplish if you give up housework.”
