"Think before acting," her father always warned. But Princess Guinevere is ruled by her heart. Her betrothal to King Arthur has not changed this.

When Guinevere and Cedwyn's latest adventure takes a dangerous turn, they find themselves embroiled in a life-or-death struggle as foretold by Merlyn's Goddess of the Stones.

Renegades--foiled in their attempt to kidnap the princess--steal the children of Cadbury Castle to sell as slaves. Guinevere and Cedwyn vow to rescue the children, but a miscalculation puts them all in more danger. The plan quickly unravels, and Guinevere's impassioned decisions come crashing down as Cedwyn chooses to turn his dream of becoming a knight into reality. Will their courage be strong enough to survive, or will one make the ultimate sacrifice?"

I’m a retired high school English teacher. A devourer of books growing up, my profession introduced me to writings and authors from times long past. Through my studies and teaching, I fell in love with the Ancient and Medieval Worlds. Now, I hope to inspire young readers and those Young-at-Heart to read more through my Tales and Legends for Reluctant Readers set in these worlds—Ancient Egypt, Medieval Wales, and coming soon, a hair-raising adventure through ancient worlds in search of 5 rare Phoenix Feathers.

All of my books come with Free study guides and/or extensive Back-of-the-Book materials.

My husband and I love to travel. In 2008, we spent three weeks in Egypt traveling by local train from one end of the country to the other; in 2014, we spent three weeks in the UK driving over 1700 miles through England, Wales, and Scotland; and in 2016, we spent a week in Iceland. We’ve also traveled to Mexico, Jamaica, and Aruba. Our next big adventure will be to Greece and Italy.

When I’m not writing or traveling, our 4 grandkids keep us busy.

This middle-grade book is a continuation of an earlier story, although it reads as a story within itself. Young fifteen year-old Guinevere, betrothed to King Arthur, does not stay home and sit on her hands while she waits for her future husband to return from fighting the rebels threatening Briton. She proves herself a strong and capable young woman as she and Cedwyn, the son of a knight, go on their own adventure to the Wizard’s Stones where they each received instructions and warnings from a goddess. Thus, the two start on a non-stop adventure that blends Christianity, myth, pagan wizardry, and medieval legend. This is primarily young Cedwyn’s story, as he fulfills his charge to assume the role of a knight.

The characters were well-written. I loved the illustrations, and thought they added to the book. Guinevere proved a brave and courageous friend to Cedwyn who came into his own in this book. The story was one of action, and it did not sugar-coat the violence and dangers of the times. Its cliff-hanger ending suggests that the story will continue in another book.

If Kate Doesn’t Act Fast, the Only “I Do” in Michael’s Future Will Be at His Trial

Yoga instructor Kate Davidson is ready to marry her boyfriend Michael, so she’s disappointed when a special dinner doesn’t end with a proposal. But disappointment turns to dismay and outrage as she learns the real problem: Michael is already married and his estranged wife is blackmailing him.

When his wife’s body is found―by Kate and her dog, no less―Michael is strangely unable to remember where he was the night she died. Since Michael has no alibi, Kate steps up to uncover what happened. What she walks into is a tangled web of deceit, obsession, and immigration fraud . . . with Michael trapped in the middle.

Finding out the night Kate expected her live-in boyfriend, Michael, to pop the question that he was not free to do so did not bode well for the relationship. However, once he returned to where his estranged wife lived, followed by Kate and friends, there is a flurry of activity, questionable characters and false leads in this cozy murder mystery. The stories within the main story added depth to the overall primary plot. The story line kept me guessing who-done-it until the end.

The author definitely has a way with words which added greatly to my reading enjoyment. She also crafted excellent characters with distinct personalities and quirks.  The personalities of the furry characters were almost more engaging that those of the people. I thoroughly enjoyed this murder mystery full of romance.

One wrong step changes Jocelyn’s Prima Ballerina’s life in one step...

A single choice results in Jeremiah facing unbearable consequences...

When these two meet, it could be catastrophic or the answer to unspoken prayers.

Can love be tested too far? Will hearts soften and hurts be forgiven?

Or will too much loss be too devastating to find hope?

One thing is for sure, lives are about to change forever…


Coming to a stop sign, Jeremiah glanced quickly left, then right, and stepped on the gas as he glanced at his sister. Strangely, she began to glow brighter. A fleeting thought came to him of why she might be illuminated. Emily started to turn her head right, and as she turned everything slowed down. Silence fill the space, not even the radio made a sound. He saw her eyes wide with fear and her mouth open as if in screaming, but no words. He felt his eyebrows crease together a second before he heard Emily scream, “Jer!” Then a deafening crunch, as he slammed against his door, and as his head careened toward the window. Metal twisting metal, and the shattering of glass could be heard. Just before his head smashed against the window knocking him out.

A makeup artist for the Phantom of the Opera with a tragic past. A mysterious man hiding a scar worse than the phantom from the Broadway show.

Linden Adair is a talented makeup artist on the New York Broadway show, Phantom of the Opera, creating the hideous scar for the actor who plays the phantom every night. But nobody knows the deep scars Linden carries after the divorce from her husband, Mark Denly—the famous director of Phantom.

Why didn’t somebody ever tell her that marrying your director was a bad idea, especially when he has a wandering eye?

Desperate to get away after enduring several years of heartache and scars, Linden takes a cross-country trip to visit her best friend in Seattle. While driving on a deserted stretch of highway late at night, she hits a deer and crashes the rental car into a gully outside of Snow Valley, Montana.

A devastatingly handsome stranger with a tow truck rescues Linden and her smashed vehicle, but when she catches sight of him in the light, she’s shocked. Anton Baldwin possess a terrible scar on his face—just like the phantom she created every night for the theater.

But Anton is hiding more than the truth behind his scar, and during a whirlwind week while being recruited for a television show being filmed in Snow Valley, the secrets of this enigmatic man turn her world upside down. 

When Anton helps Linden open up to the world around her, Linden wonders if the small town of Snow Valley might hold the magic she needs to heal the scars on her broken heart.

If you like sweet romance and second chance love stories, then you’ll love THE SECRET OF A KISS, A Snow Valley Romance.

When she hit Montana, she texted her best friend, Anne. Hey, only two more days until I’m at your front door! Not sure what I want to do first. The top of the Space Needle or a day at the ocean.

          Anne texted back: Your first morning will be dropping my four-year-old Bethany at preschool, Baily at a sitter, then coffee with some friends I want you to meet. After that, we’ll take a drive along the ocean.
          Sounds great! Linden texted back.

          Ten days suddenly sounded like a lot of time to intrude on Anne and her family. Maybe a long weekend would have been more realistic. Her husband was sure to privately complain, counting the days until Linden was gone. 

          Picking up her phone again, Linden texted: If I arrive a couple days later than originally scheduled, will that ruin your plans? I’m enjoying life on the road more than I thought.

          Anne: Did an alien abduct the real Linden? No worries, I don’t have any specific plans. We can always get tickets for the ballet after you get here. I have a babysitter on call.

          Linden sent off a smiley face to Anne, dropped her cell phone to the empty seat next to her, and lifted her eyes back to the road. At the same moment, an enormous shadow loomed across both lanes of the highway.

“Ah!” She screamed, jerking at the wheel, terrified she was about to hit someone.

          There was a grinding noise as the car hit the rumble edge of the highway. A pair of antlers caught in her headlights and then a shadow leaped off to the left.

Linden tried to bring the car back onto the road, but she was going too fast, the jutted ridges of the highway making her car fish-tail uncontrollably. Before she could blink her eyes again, the car was jouncing down into a ravine while she banged her head against the ceiling of the vehicle.

Pumping the brakes didn’t help to stop the runaway car. She’d never felt so out of control in her life, waiting to land somewhere. A lake? Hanging off a cliff edge?

A moment later, the Nissan hit a bank of scrub brush and shuddered to a stop. Steam poured from the hood. Sounds of hissing came from the front end of the vehicle. Something was definitely damaged. Her rental car wasn’t going anywhere tonight. She was stuck in the middle of nowhere with a damaged car, no flashlight, and wild animals lurking just outside her windshield. She was so in trouble.
