Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you found my home on the Web and hope you'll return occasionally to see what's new.
Even though it feels like only a few months since Out of the Embers was released, the second Mesquite Springs book has been through titling, two rounds of editing, cover design, and is now available for preorder.
The title is Dreams Rekindled, which I absolutely love, and the cover ... ah, the cover. I know I'm prejudiced, but I think the cover for Rekindled is even more beautiful than the one for Out of the Embers. That's saying a lot, since Embers' cover was fabulous. For a look at the cover for Dreams Rekindled and a sneak peek at the story itself, CLICK HERE.
While much of my attention has been focused on the next book, I'm still celebrating the reception Out of the Embers has received from both professional reviewers and readers alike. Midwest Book Review says it's "extraordinarily entertaining," while Booklist calls it "a moving and uplifting tale." For more reviews, CLICK HERE.
It's been so much fun bringing this new town to life, and though my heart ached over all that Evelyn endured, I was glad that I could give her the happy ending she deserved.
If you'd like to learn more about Evelyn and Wyatt's story or watch the trailer, here's THE LINK. And, if you'd like to sample the story, here's an EXCERPT.
I hope I've intrigued you.
I also hope you'll explore the tabs on this page, because they give you more information about me and my books. I've even included hints for aspiring writers. And since I'm also a lecturer, there's a tab with descriptions of my most popular workshops.
One of my greatest pleasures as an author is hearing from readers, so I encourage you to let me know your reaction to my books. If you have questions or comments, or if there's something else you'd like to see on this website, send me an EMAIL.
