As always, I’m surprised when summer winds to a close and yet fall is my favorite season. It cools off here in Washington State and the rainy season starts with occasional bursts of cool gray days. I enjoy the clouds and fresher air as well as the breezes which no longer carry the smoky odor of wildfires from the hills. This year, we had smoke from British Columbia in Canada and I’m hoping today’s rain helps control those blazes. The river I live on has dwindled to a much narrower trickle and the sunburned, brown grass should return to green at some point.
Meanwhile, I’m home from the Pacific NW Writer’s Conference, my first in-person event since the days before the COVID pandemic. I really loved seeing old friends and making new ones, but of course now it’s time to finish up books and meet writing deadlines. Four O’Clock, Montana Time, the newest release in the Stewart Falls Cheerleader series is coming soon. I’m sure I’ll be seeing the edits on the next book in the Shamrock Stable series soon. No Horsing Around is all about summer at the barn with all of our favorite teen girls sharing their equine adventures.
While I wait for edits, I’m working on Not a Sister Wife, #6 in the Stewart Falls series and plotting Holiday Hoofbeats, the next book in the Shamrock series. In real life, we’ll kick off the holidays at the riding stable with our first Halloween Party on horseback in three years. The kids and I are looking forward to having a horsy good time as well as lots of chocolate.

Roaring Rory Gallatin’s girl...
Daughter of the town troublemaker...
Trailer trash wannabe...
Seventeen-year-old Darcy Gallatin has heard it all, especially when the local minister uses her father as a bad example.
Everyone knows she’s different from the rest of the Gallatin family. She earned a scholarship to prestigious Stewart Falls Academy, is on the honor roll and is a varsity cheerleader.
She has a dream nobody can steal. She’ll study hard, attend a prominent university, and become a large-animal veterinarian, specializing in horses. Then, she’ll return to the small town of Pine Ridge and show everyone what a Gallatin can do. This is her last year at home. Next December she’ll be away at college, so she decides to make the holiday season special for her ten-year-old brother. She won’t let her father ruin Christmas for the whole family, not again.
Disaster strikes when her dad injures Darcy’s horse, Whisky. Can Darcy ever forgive her father, or has he finally crossed the line and made her hate him? Even Darcy doesn’t know for sure, but one thing is certain—she needs to change things. And fast. But ho
