Welcome to Yee-Haw Day, the once-a-month day we’ve reserved to share our news with you – all sorts of fun news!
So check out the post below to get the details on the kinds of things that make us go Yee-Haw!!
Today just happens to be my birthday. YeeHaw! The big 4-8. Closing in on half a century. Whew! I’m celebrating by taking my daughter to Bellingham, WA to get her moved in for her summer internship. So far away! We made the trip fun, though, by leaving a few days early and visiting beautiful Victoria, British Columbia. Girl trip!
We visited Butchart Gardens, a couple castles, and the inner harbor. Even the rain couldn’t dampen our spirits!
As a fun side note: We were in Victoria, Canada (named, of course for Queen Victoria) on Friday, May 24 – the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth! Super cool!
TO CATCH A TEXAS STAR is a finalist (Historical category) in the National Readers’ Choice Awards!
Winners will be announced in New York City on Thursday, July 25, 2019
I’m honored to be the launch book for a brand new sweet romance series called BACHELORS & BABIES which features–you guessed it!–a bachelor hero who suddenly (and quite unexpectedly!) finds a baby on his doorstep and in his life. Each book in this multi-author series will have its own unique story about how a handsome hunk must care for a baby. Of course, he’ll need a woman to help him, won’t he?
Available June 1st, but PREORDER now on Amazon!
The Cowboy Meet His Match will be released tomorrow, May 28–tra-la!
His first mistake was marrying her; his second was falling in love.
I am so thrilled to have a western short story that made the “short list” in the Western Fictioneers Peacemaker Awards this year! My story is called THE GAMBLE, and it was published in a western anthology called THE UNTAMED WEST. Let me tell you, there are a ton of great stories in that book alone, not to mention the many other entries that were received in the Peacemaker competition. That’s why I’m so proud to have my story be chosen as one of only FIVE finalists, along with Troy Smith, Michael Ritt, Jeff Mariotte, and Ron Schwab. Now I will be waiting like a nervous Nellie until June 15 when the winners are announced. No matter who wins the award in this category, I’m just thrilled to have made the finalist list among so many excellent stories and talented authors who submitted stories. Wish me luck!

Recently, along with Fellow Filly Linda Broday, I participated in the 2019 ArtsFest here in Amarillo. It was a great event filled with folks from all of the arts. From youth dancers and singers to writers. Our local writer’s organization, which is the oldest continual writing organization in the U.S. will be celebrating our centennial in 2020. We were able to sign as many of our published works as we so desired during the three day event. Writers from all generas enjoyed interfacing with our readers. We are looking forward to our centennial.
