Try a romance novel on...for Sighs!

Hi, and welcome to my world.

I'm a USA Today Bestselling Author, and write two series of  small-town romance and women's fiction, with characters you'll wish lived in your neighborhood. In fact, readers have said they'd like to move to the towns I write about. And you can move there too--sort of--by reading the books. 

Please click on the Serendipity tab for my new series set in Serendipity, Indiana. This series revolves around members and friends of the Standish family, their Christmas tree farm, and the little town in Indiana where things are never quite what they seem--in a good way! Each Serendipity tale ends with a reminder of the magic of Love. I think you'll be happily surprised with this new series. It's quite my best work yet.

Please click on the Legend tab for my McClain titles set in the beautiful foothills of the Smoky Mountains. Each of my Legend, Tennessee titles has a McClain as either the main hero or heroine. McClains can be stubborn and overbearing, but deep down they're all about  family and community. What's not to love? 

All my stories are "sweet" or "wholesome" romance. We like to refer to it as just enough spice, but the lid's still on the jar.


New Release!
The Blank Book - #4 
in the Serendipity, Indiana series

Alice Williams’s calm, predictable world changed in an instant. Most everybody in the small town of Serendipity, Indiana has rallied around her, and Alice's new life is beginning to take shape. But something is very wrong. 

A girls’ night out results in an unusual writing project, for which Alice chooses an antique leather-bound blank book. The story she's begun to pen starts to alter her reality, and that of the man she has met only in her dreams. 

Movie star Robert Diamond doesn't want anything to do with Alice, or with her little hometown. His only reason for coming to Serendipity is to put an end to the life-altering dreams he's having. Dreams that feature a woman who looks just like Alice... 

Only by working together can they uncover the secret behind the Blank Book, and create the future each of them wants. 

Writer’s block can be maddening when you’re literally writing the story of your life.

THE BLANK BOOK (Book #4 in the Serendipity, Indiana series) is a wholesome, heartwarming small town romance. As with all of the Serendipity books, this story also has a hint of mystery, and a surprise ending.
