Summer Newsletter

Aug 12, 2022 3:01 pm


Summer is always a busy time on the family ranch, and it’s also been a writing good time.

Time in Between, the sixth book in the Liberty Valley Love series came out in June.

imageGhost of the Past, book Four in the Baker CityHearts and Haunts series will be out in September. I’m continuing to write the next two books in those series, Kitchen Witch for Liberty Valley Love and Kindred Spirits for Baker City.

Kitchen Witch is the story of Meteor Jamison, the shapeshifter who operates a bakery and catering operation in Eagleville around her witchy duties with her two sisters. Astra, her oldest sister was the heroine of Time In Between.

Kindred Spirits share the hijinks of Debbie Ramsey, the former soldier who bought the local riding stable outside of Baker City. It’s wonderful having the opportunity to connect with old friends, alive and dead in that town.

I finished up the Christmas novella for one of my young adult series, but I also had edits to do for the first two books in that YA series. I’ve made it to a few street fairs and festivals to sell books in person. That’s a wonderful adventure after staying home for two years.

In addition, summer means horse camp. I taught for two weeks in June and two more in July. There are four more weeks to go. The horses are loving the opportunity to see the kiddos and the carrots. Or else the carrots and then the kiddos!

So, how is your summer? What are you doing? Is it as exciting as mine?

It’s much more fun to write about cleaning the barn than actually shoveling out the stalls. Of course, when everything is done, I try to write for an hour or two, but only if I’m not totally exhausted. When I am, I curl up with the cat in the recliner and try to stay awake long enough to watch the news. It doesn’t always work. Sometimes, I have to wake up so I can go to bed.


This newsletter is jam-packed with goodies! Continue reading for a look at what the future could hold.

Book Information:


Time in Between Book Six in the Liberty Valley Love series came out in June!


The oldest of the Jamison triplets, hereditary witch, and criminal defense attorney, Astra Jamison knows more about the laws of magick than her two sisters. She serves the Goddess but believes those who hurt and harm those who can’t defend themselves should be punished, abhorring it when innocents suffer. She is always willing to dole out her kind of justice to anyone who offends her, often sending them to gruesome deaths. When she and her sisters open a time portal to 1888 Liberty Valley to save two people from a serial killer, the last thing she expects is to have the wizard she views as an age-old enemy return, seeking retribution for sins she committed in the past.

Wizard and healer in more than one life, Rowdy Tall-Deer struggled to survive when his soul-matched mate arranged his murder time and again, having rogue shape-shifters attack and eat him alive. Discovering a time portal that leads to the 21st century and the witch who betrayed him means making new plans. Does he opt for vengeance or attempt to learn the truth behind her machinations? Nothing is as it seems when her demon father becomes involved, determined to continue a war that began eons ago.

Will love finally conquer evil or is history doomed to repeat itself for their next life?

Ghost of the Past book four in Baker City: Hearts and Haunts is coming in September! In case you missed the cover reveal, here it is in all its glory.


Check out the blurb:

Former Marine, Durango Hawke never thought he’d spend years trekking through the jungles of South America looking for his missing brother captured on a covert Army mission, or that duty and loyalty to his family would cost him the love of his life. He intends to marry Heather one day, but for now, they’ll have to ‘hurry up and wait!’

Army captain, Heather McElroy grew up dreaming of a country music career but followed her childhood sweetheart into the military instead. Now, back in civilian life, it’s finally time to put herself first. It’s her turn and she’s done putting her life on hold for her man regardless of how much she loves him. What will it take to make him realize she is a real person, not a doll sitting on a shelf?

When Durango leaves on his latest rescue mission, he assumes she’ll be waiting when he returns.

It’s time to experience her own adventure, but will chasing her dreams cost Heather the love of her life?
