I’m so excited to be part of the crew here at Get Lost in a Story. The women of GLIAS are my peers, friends, and huge inspirations. In addition, they have such a great understanding of what’s most important to both readers AND writers, and that is getting lost in a great story!

I live in Minnesota with my wonderful husband of 39 years and a hyperactive border collie who loves to herd lake waves, bicycle riders, birds and the neighbor’s cat. Because I’ve loved to write since childhood, I pursued a journalist degree and have worked as both a reporter and a magazine editor. I have two talented children: an equine veterinarian daughter and a talented musician son who gave us our beautiful, smart daughter-in-law. They’ve blessed us with nearly twenty grandchildren--of the four-legged variety! If you’d like to see my brag book, click here

In 2010 I entered and won RWA’s Golden Heart® contest with a contemporary romance, called SONGBIRD.  In 2011 it was sold to Avon Books and retitled THE RANCHER AND THE ROCK STAR. I have to admit, this is pretty much my dream job!


And now it's a thrill to have a second book out with Avon--
RESCUED BY A STRANGER. 




She’s a woman full of dreams
When a stranger arrives in town on a vintage motorcycle, Jill Carpenter has no idea her life is about to change forever. She never expected her own personal knight in shining armor would be an incredibly charming and handsome southern man—but one with a deep secret. 
He’s a man hoping to outrun a tragedy
When Chase Preston jumped on his motorcycle to escape his wounded life, he didn't expect the perfect woman to fall into his arms... literally! But though he can't deny his feelings for the sweet and beautiful Jill, he doesn't see any way he and his mistake-filled past will fit into her bright future. 
Falling in love may require more than either can give
The longer Chase stays in Kennison Falls, the more deeply Jill and the people of her home town pull him in. The more Jill discovers heroic qualities in Chase, the more she wants to find a home in his arms—if only he would trust her with the truth. But will truth tear them apart when Jill’s dreams start coming true and Chase’s past finally returns to haunt him? Or, can they get beyond dreams to find the love that will rescue their two hearts?



And here's a little more about the first book:

 
THE RANCHER AND THE ROCK STAR
To the world, Gray Covey is a rock superstar. But to his runaway son he’s simply the father who never has any time for him. To prove that he’s more than his rock star lifestyle for the next few weeks Gray must put aside his fame and become … a farmhand?

Abby Stadtler has built the perfect, quiet life for herself. Neat and orderly is the name of the game for her and her beloved farm. When Gray shows up on her doorstep, looking like he stepped straight off the front cover of a magazine, she is determined that he won’t upset her routine.

But what neither counts on is the love that springs up between them. Abby knows that life on a ranch in Minnesota can never compete with an exciting world tour. But for Gray, it’s time to decide what’s really important in life. With Abby’s help, will he be able to decide, once and for all, that love and family are the answer?
