Today I am thrilled to officially unveil the front cover to my upcoming release with Soul Mate Publishing, entitled “Beside Still Waters“.


McKayla thought she had it all. Then she met Clay and realized love was sharing life’s adventures.

“Beside Still Waters” is my eighth published book, my sixth novel, and fifth book offered by Soul Mate Publishing. It is a shift away from some of my other stories, in that it is a Christian romance without the blended sub-genre mixtures. That makes it a clean read without being predictable or overly sweet. There are plenty of support characters to keep the action going strong. Anyone who knows me knows Christian and time travel are my two favorite genres to read, and conversely, to write. So I am exceptionally proud to introduce “Beside Still Waters”.

Here is a little about this story:

Top Journalist and corporate climber, McKayla Buchanan, is sent to a remote California mountain camp for inner-city, at-risk teens. Accustomed to political corruption and high-society drama assignments, she is suddenly a fish out of water. At Camp In As Much, she meets eight hostile and distrustful teens, assorted volunteers and rescued horses—and Clay.
Clay Michaels is the man who founded Camp In As Much and made it the success it is now. His hope for the highly recommended journalist is to come and write a feature to send seeds out to form other camps like his nationwide. He never considered the reporter would turn out to be a lovely woman, or for him to have such an attraction to her.
Between McKayla’s worldly experience and Clay’s strong faith, they form a partnership to help with the endless challenges the kids present. While McKayla’s assignment is supposed to be temporary, it isn’t long before she and Clay are each wishing it could last longer. A serious situation will force McKayla to decide if she can give up her worldly ways and place her faith in the same higher source that earthy and godly Clay does.

“Beside Still Waters” is now available for pre-order on Amazon, with a deliver date of November 9th. Click here for the link to take you to Amazon: http://amzn.to/2dvkUEe

In the mood for a free book? I always am! And I love giveaways. Having just finished the giveaway for a bracelet to launch the cover reveal for my upcoming novel ‘Chasing the Painted Skies’, I want to do something else.


If you didn’t win, no worries! I have more stuff planned throughout the year.

First, in honor of the print edition of Shimmers of Stardust now being available, as well as the e-book digital version, I am giving away a print paperback copy. So head over to Goodreads.com  and look for my author page or follow this handy widget:


The giveaway runs from September 22nd through October 22nd, 2015.

Shimmers of Stardust

Don’t recall what ‘Shimmers of Stardust’ is about? It’s a twisty blend of time travel and Christian romance. Reviews so far call is a “sweet, romantic story of redemption and forgiveness”, having “time travel, 1800’s history, page turning suspense, a sexy bad boy and a strong heroine”, a “great, uplifting read’ ‘and “with some fun twists and turns the reader might be surprised at how this romance end.” (Amazon review quotes) In July, InD’tale Magazine gave Shimmers of Stardust 4 1/2 stars, saying  it is “an interesting time travel romance with a hero and heroine that will quickly have readers enamored.” They also called it “funny, light-hearted, sad, scary and wonderful all rolled up into one shining star!”

So it looks like folks have been enjoying this book. I call it fun. It was fun to write. Civil war hero, Logan Riley, turned renegade is hanged in 1869. He survives, being found alive in 2014 by anthropologist Dr. McKenzie Lynne. Kenzie had been hired by a team of physicists to find a time travel missing link. Realizing it was Logan, and what they intended to do, she runs, taking their living treasure.

Now they’re hunted like criminals, by obsessed physicists and military who will stop at nothing to get them back. As they escape further into the desert and mountains of New Mexico and Arizona, Kenzie’s strong faith works on Logan’s bad boy heart. Slowly, she convicts him of his lawless past. And love blooms between them like desert flowers.

As the hunters close in, it becomes a show down  and a test for their love between modern military armed with everything, Kenzie’s Christian morals and Logan’s nineteenth cowboy justice.
