Stories that Matter

COMING SOON! Cover Reveal & An Invite!

I’m delighted to announce that I will be releasing my next novel this spring!


(Cover by Yvonne Parks @ Pear Creative).

Two lives taken down different roads – one enduring love – one shot at starting over.

                               If only they believed in second chances.

 Julia Connelly is finally free from twelve long years in an abusive relationship. Now able to live the life she’s longed for, Julia takes her two children back home to Vermont, hoping for peace and healing. The last person she expects to see is the man she eloped with at eighteen—who then abandoned her two months into their marriage, with little explanation.

When an assignment in the Middle East ends in tragedy, popular news correspondent, Reid Wallace, returns to his hometown seeking answers and peace of mind.

Confronting his past was not in the plan.

Now he’s asking different questions. Like why the only woman he’s ever really loved still mesmerizes him. Why the haunted expression she wears reaches right into his soul.

                       And why her twelve year-old son looks just like him.

They say you can’t go home again. Sometimes you don’t have a choice.


OKAY, so that’s the gist!! I’m super excited and I hope you are too!! With every new release, I realize just how important my readers are. So now’s the time for me to reach out and invite YOU to JOIN my Promotional Team. If you think this might be something you’re interested in, and you’d like more information, simply either leave your email in the comments here or send me an email at, and I’d be happy to send you everything you need to know, then you can decide whether you’d like to sign up!

Thanks so much for your support, and I hope this explains my lack of blogs of late. Actually, it’s that and me avoiding the whole 50 Shades debacle. Because I have too much to say … 🙂

Happy Weekend!

      Thanks, Andrew!! LOL, I dunno … I’m actually tired of everyone talking about it, which is why I have refrained. But bottom line for me is, it’s garbage and I hate everything about it. 🙂
