It’s Yee-Haw Day!

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!!

I’m thrilled to announce a sale! I’ve sold two Women’s Fiction stories – but don’t worry, they’re still set in the west! The first will come out next March. Title:  The Road to Me.  Here’s the blurb:

Trouble with the Curve meets Peace, Love and Misunderstanding.

The Universe conspires to force a uptight, workaholic perfumer on a Route 66 road trip with the hippie grandmother that she bitterly resents. What she discovers out there could not only heal the scars of her childhood, but open her to a brighter future.

I am so excited and honored to announce that At Love’s Command and Inn for a Surprise (novella) are both finalists for the 2021 Faith, Hope & Love Reader’s Choice Award and the 2021 Holt Medallion.
Receiving a finalist nomination is a huge honor for any contest, but there is something special about contests that are judged by readers, and both these awards have that distinction.
I’m tickled pink and waving my cowgirl hat in the air like a crazy woman. Ha!

The 25th Anniversary edition of Gray Hawk’s Lady has just been released.  These anniversary books are a lot of work, mostly because when the mass market book was converted to e-book, I didn’t know the amount of errors that could take place.  So these anniversary books have been edited again to correct any errors and re-released.

But, isn’t this a honey of a cover?  Here’s the link to Amazon:

Let me leave you with the synopsis:

Different worlds, one heart.
Blackfoot Warriors, Book 1

When Lady Genevieve Rohan joins her father in the farthest reaches of the American West, she expects to bring a bit of genteel English charm to his dry, academic existence. Instead, she finds her father desperately ill, and it’s up to her to finish his study of the Indian and publish his work—or face the wrath of his creditors.

Her troubles mount when the men hired to capture a member of the Blackfoot tribe don’t bring her a docile maid to study. They present her with a magnificent warrior—proud, outrageously handsome and simmering with fury at the loss of his freedom.

The white woman is beautiful beyond compare, but Gray Hawk can’t think past his plan to exact revenge against this meddling foreigner. It’s ridiculously easy to escape, then turn the tables and take her captive. When anger turns to passion, then to love, he embarks on a new quest. To claim the stubborn, red-headed vixen as his own.

Yet as their hearts strain toward each other, pride conspires to pull them apart…unless they can each find a way for their hearts to become one.

Warning: Sensuous romance that contains a raging, simmering love, consumed by its fire and destined to explode at any moment.

This book is the 25th Year Edition

I made the move from Amarillo to Lubbock over Memorial Day and I LOVE my new apartment.

It’s in a 55 and older complex and really nice. I know I’ll write some good stories here.

And my 3rd floor windows offer an inspiring view of the Lubbock sunset!



I’m so excited!  My second oldest granddaughter graduated from nursing school at Amarillo College two weeks ago.  Abigail was President of her class and has already enrolled in the next level of nursing plus is working full time at NWTH, where everyone from her other Grandmother to me…total of 14 family members now…have worked.

This picture includes our oldest granddaughter, Emma, who is also in the medical field, and is having a big wedding next month.  Such exciting news for our family.

Just of interest, Abby’s Hawaiian Lai is a custom in California where she graduated high school. She wanted one and we made sure she had it!

Yes, I’m a proud Granny!
