Welcome to my world. I'm so glad you're here!

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. 

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.
