I write to create an escape into a world where the reader can smile, laugh, or even cry, and yet walk away feeling uplifted. My Amber Leaf Trilogy (Tracks in the Snow, Somewhere Between Raindrops, and A Whisper on the Wind) aspires to achieve just that.
My Big Ole character became so beloved that I wrote a two-book prequel focusing on his early life (A Carriage Ride Home and Heather in a Tempest) and have now crossed over into writing screenplays.
