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.

Karen Witemeyer

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!

Previously known as the RITA, the Vivian is one of the most prestigious awards for romance fiction. I’m incredibly honored to represent western and inspirational romance as a finalist in the category for Romance with Religious or Spiritual Elements.

Some of you may know that I lost my dear husband five years ago after fifty years of marriage.  As incredible as it seems, I’ve recently met a wonderful man and we’re getting married.  I’m truly blessed.  I can’t believe I’m so lucky to have found another good man who wants to spend his life with me. His name is Jim and the wedding is set for June 5th.   Can’t wait!


On the book front, The Outlaw’s Daughter, has been selected as a finalist in the HOLT Medallion Contest in the Historical category.

After a long Nebraska winter of cloudy, cold days, brown grass, and leafless trees, spring has sprung!  Yee-Haw!  Even better, the days have FINALLY grown warm enough for us to open our cabin at the lake.

I hunted for a lake cabin for 15 years before finally finding ours.  Believe it or not, it was a Craigslist deal, a little fixer-upper (which was super fun because we were retired and my husband is really good at fixing up things), and we were able to transform our little get-away into a place we are proud of.  It has become a family treasure and memory-maker for our grandchildren.

Life is good.  Double-Yee-Haw!


















Fun decorations on the inside and vibrant red geraniums on the outside.














Nature abounds.

I just got word that my sweet Christmas story, A Home for the Holidays, is a finalist in the Holt Medallion Contest. I’m so excited to have this story recognized because it was such fun to write. The winners are chosen in June, but being nominated is enough for me.

I am excited to share some books news and a few other fun things with you today!

The incredibly talented Josephine Blake of Covers and Cupcakes gave me sweet contemporary western Learning the Ropes a makeover. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this cover. It’s pretty, and wonderful, and so perfect for Ty and Lexi’s story. And the really fun thing is that this book is an unofficial prequel to my Summer Creek series, which is set in the nearby town of Summer Creek.

You can find out more about Learning the Ropes  at these outlets: Amazon | B&N | Apple | KoboSmashwords


Speaking of Summer Creek, the fourth book in the series is now available for pre-orders for just $2.99!

Isn’t the cover of Distracting the Deputy dreamy? I just love the way it turned out. I purchased the cover image from Shana Bailey Photography. You’ll find her artwork on the other three books in the series, too!

This book was just awesome to write. I love both Knox and Zadie’s characters, and I hope you will, too! The book releases June 22!


My niece, Katie, is graduating next month. She came to see me Saturday and we spent the day taking her senior photos. This is one of my favorites. I’m so proud of this sweet, lovely girl!


Spring has sprung and I am in love with the glorious shades of the season. Maybe it’s because winter seemed like it lasted forever that I’m so deeply grateful for the colorful joy spring is bringing this year.

Wishing you all a marvelous month of May!

Sparks fly when struggling saloon owner Deacon Brannock finds himself pitted against Grace Legend and the Temperance Society.

It’s anyone’s guess as to who’ll emerge as the winner.

Hopefully book news soon (cross your fingers for me) but right now, I’m ecstatic to be taking my first trip in a year and a half! Next week I’ll be flying to Oregon to meet up with my two fishing buds –  we have over 20 years of memories! Fly fishing all day, and at night, it’s like a high school sleepover!

What a wonderful day we had here today! Hubby and I both have gotten both our shots, and daughter, son, and daughter-in-law have gotten their first one (plus, they’ve all three already had COVID last year!) We got together for Easter and “belated” March birthdays in our household. My hubby turned 70 on March 31, and my daughter-in-law, Kayla, celebrated her birthday on the 15th of March. Here’s what happened through Max (white lab) and Sammy’s (brown love-dog) eyes!

It’s so hard to wait. We haven’t seen them in so long! We’ll just be right here on our bed looking for them–maybe it’ll make them come faster!
They’re here! I will roll on the ground and kick my legs for joy!


Well, that didn’t last long enough! Everyone is leaving! Pooey!
I can’t believe it’s over! I did get a new bone today, though.
I’m tired. A fun day, but I’m worn out now. I’m getting very sleepy!









I’m already gone, brother. So tired my tongue’s hanging out!



A good time was had by all. Happy Easter, everyone!

Book #1 Brothers in Arms Series

Left with little back in Missouri, Kevin Hunt takes his younger siblings on a journey to Wyoming when he receives news that he’s inheriting part of a ranch. The catch is that the ranch is also being given to a half brother he never knew existed. Turns out, Kevin’s supposedly dead father led a secret and scandalous life.

But danger seems to track Kevin along the way, and he wonders if his half brother, Wyatt, is behind the attacks. Finally arriving at the ranch, everyone is at each other’s throats and the only one willing to stand in between is Winona Hawkins, a nearby schoolmarm.

Despite being a long-time friend to Wyatt, Winona can’t help but be drawn to the earnest, kind Kevin–and that puts her in the cross hairs of somebody’s dangerous plot. Will they all be able to put aside their differences long enough to keep anyone from getting truly hurt?

Wooing the Schoolmarm

If only they can learn to ignore each other, they might stop the sparks from igniting between them.


Kansas, 1870

Miss Maddie Percy had come all the way from Washington D.C. to teach school in Colton Kansas.   Instead, the feisty red-haired schoolmarm finds the town burned to the ground and her only shelter an isolated sod house belonging to widower Luke Tyler and his young son, Matthew. Never one to be deterred by setbacks, Maddie is soon making friends with the local Indians, setting up a tepee to live in, and finding her blood racing every time Luke comes near.

Luke Tyler has no room in his life for a woman—especially one as eccentric, spunky, and smart as Maddie Percy.  His prairie farm life is too harsh, his memories too painful and his secrets too dark to give in to the feelings she has awakened in him.  She might be stealing his son’s heart, but he is keeping his own out of reach. If only he could keep the sparks between them from igniting something as dangerous as love.

I have the best fans in the world! Thanks to you, I made it into the top five for Family Fiction’s 40 Essential Christian Romance Authors for the third year in a row. What an amazing honor! This list was determined strictly by fan vote, so that makes it that much more special to me.

I’m happy to share that Lilac Bride is now available! You can find it on Amazon in both digital and paperback format, and it’s also available in Kindle Unlimited for those with KU subscriptions!

When wedding plans go awry, wily matchmakers come to the rescue . . .

Katherine Kelly has been dreaming of her wedding since she was old enough to cut pictures out of magazines and glue them into her bridal binder. When Kaden, the handsome cowboy who holds her heart, proposes on a snowy Christmas Eve, she couldn’t envision anything more perfect or romantic. The spring date is set, all the nuptial details have been meticulously arranged, and she only has six weeks to go before the big day. Then, in a blink, her carefully formed plans begin to rapidly unravel. A freak snowstorm, rampaging rodents, and a lost wedding gown are only the beginning of the troubles they face.

Cowboy entrepreneur Kaden Ford still can’t quite believe Katherine Kelly agreed to marry him. She’s beautiful, elegant, intelligent, and the woman who fills his heart with joy. He doesn’t care if they get married in a cathedral or a cabin in the woods. All he wants is to spend his life loving Kat. But when faced with one overwhelming challenge after another, will love be enough to hold them together?

Find out in this sweet, charming, small-town romance full of laughter, love, and scheming octogenarian matchmakers.

I’m also excited to share that I have a new nephew! Shane and his mama are both doing great and thriving. And Shane’s big brother, TJ, thinks he’s pretty neat, too. I recently got to pay them a visit, and took my dad along. The middle names of my little nephews are after my Dad, which is so sweet. TJ loves clocks, or ticktocks as he calls them. He had a great time playing with his great-grandpa’s watch while we were there.

Y’all, I’m “YEE-HAWING” today about these warmer temperatures we have in Oklahoma City after that devastating 2 weeks of below freezing Siberian winter air we experienced! Oh, my GOODNESS!


But we were fortunate! We had power the entire time, though we were scheduled to be included in the rolling blackouts. That didn’t happen for our neighborhood, and I was so grateful that the power stayed on. We laid in a TON of firewood “just in case” though! Water was a different story–though we had water, there were about 2 days of it being brown, and even having visible dirt and grass in it. We were advised that “you might want to boil it before using it”–UM…YEAH.



But not everyone was sad about those extremely low temperatures and the SNOW we got with it! Sammy and Max enjoyed it for brief bits of time throughout the day. They are like kids, and needed to go out and play (among other things!) They kept us entertained and smiling. I hope you all made it through that “Siberian winter blast” without too much difficulty! Spring is on the way, and can’t get here soon enough for us.

When I first started putting my older titles — which had been mass market paperbacks — into e-books, I did it without realizing the amount of errors that can happen to a book simply because of the conversion.  And so one by one, I’ve been re-editing these early titles and updating the covers and putting them out as 25th Year Anniversary books.

Lakota Princess is the third (3rd) book we’ve now re-edited, updated the cover and re-released.  It’s quite a project and I have six books yet to go (the rest of my books were thoroughly edited once I realized the problem).

This is the 3rd book in the Lakota series and it is currently on sale for $.99.

That makes the Lakota Series (a series of 3 books) my first series to be out as 25th Year Anniversary books.  Yay!

Here’s the series book covers from Amazon’s series page.  The books are: LAKOTA SURRENDER; PROUD WOLF’S WOMAN; LAKOTA PRINCESS.

Here’s blurb of this book:

A love that defies the ocean. A secret deeper than blood.

Lakota Princess, Book 3

Driven from her home in England by hostile political forces, Estrela was little more than a girl when she came to be raised by a far western Lakota tribe. On the wide, sweeping plains she grew tall and strong, and won the love of a handsome warrior.

But on the eve of their marriage, she is torn away from her native family, torn from the man she loves, and forced to return to a place that feels more like a foreign country than her home. There she merely exists, haunted by her love’s sweet kisses and heated embrace, yearning for his unforgettable touch.

Black Bear has braved the ocean to find the woman whose beauty has captured his soul. But no sooner has he arrived in England than he is called upon to save her life. Who in their right mind would want to murder such a gentle spirit?

As Black Bear comes between her and death time after time, Estrela wishes they could both just disappear back to the plains, and bury the secret she has long hidden –- even from him. A secret from which only their love, truer than blood, can save them.

This is the 25th year Anniversary Edition of this book.

Warning: Sensuous romance that contains separated lovers who will let nothing come between them…not oceans, her mysterious past, or a murderer bent on destroying their future.

The latest Clear Creek Brides Book is here!

Ruby Bennett is on the shelf. Okay, so they don’t call it that in Clear Creek. The residents prefer the term, “slow starter”. But at twenty-three, if she got any slower, she’d be in her grave before ever finding a husbad, so why kid herself? Worse, her best friend Merritt is now engaged, which only makes Ruby’s spinsterhood loom larger.

Peaceful Mathias Comfort (Matt for short) had plans and they didn’t include a wife. He had a business to build up, a one room cabin, and a brother willing to throw caution to the wind and take a wife. But not Matt. He would do things proper. But when he begins to accompany Ruby Bennett and her mother to help a family in need, he begins to learn that the best laid plans often go awry.

This time, Danny won’t let her ignore her true feelings.

He has until Valentine’s Day to make her his. Can he convince Felix to give them one more chance and prove they’re a perfect match?

I’ve received my first ever review from Publishers Weekly!  Yee-Haw!

This international magazine and website was founded in 1872 and has published continuously since then.  It’s a weekly trade publication for publishers, authors, agents, librarians, booksellers, etc.  They are tough, selective in what they read and review, and just to be chosen from a mountain of submissions is a very good thing! 

The review, in part (because I don’t want to give my book away!)

“. . . this contemporary western should please Crooks’s existing fans and earn her new ones.”

I have a new release, Once Upon a Winter Wedding. I’m so enjoying writing these sweet romances set in Holly, Idaho. 


Can opposites attract and plan the perfect winter wedding?

Free-wheeling Stevie Evans is thrilled when her best friend announces she’s getting married and promises to help, never imagining she’d play wedding planner with her bestie’s uptight brother, Brant. She and Brant clashed several years ago and she’s avoided him ever since. But this time she can’t run or hide, and the buzz of attraction is stronger than ever.

Brant Gilroy’s meticulous life plan takes an unexpected turn when he hits a career bump on the same day as his sister’s wedding announcement. She wants to get married at the family tree farm, which he’s been restoring. Brant’s determined to make her day special despite his uncertain future, although he dreads working with her best friend—a woman who’s his complete opposite. So why can’t he get her out of his head?

As Brant and Stevie work together, Brant begins to wonder if they have more in common than they suspected. But how can he convince her that opposites can sometimes make the perfect team?

I have a new release, the second book in my Clear Creek Bride Series.

Two meddling matrons

A town full of spinsters

And one musicale …

The last thing Merritt O’Hare wants to do is perform in front of the whole town. For one, she can’t play the violin to save her life. And two, Benedict Comfort, the self-appointed leader of this musical fiasco irritates her to no end. But when Merritt finds a way to really get to him, she executes it with relish. Unfortunately, she might have bitten off more than she can chew on this one.

Benedict Comfort thinks Merritt O’Hare isn’t worth his time. Though he likes exchanging barbs with her, he can only take so much. And rehearsals with the woman and her friends are downright painful. None of them can play a whit! But he can. Imagine his surprise when he finds he likes teaching them. Toss in a ridiculous challenge Merritt presents him with and the game is on! But spending time with Merritt is doing more to him than bringing out his love of music. It’s opening his heart …

I am so proud of my hometown in the Texas Panhandle.  Each New Years the newspaper names a Man and Woman of the Year.  It is typically people who are philanthropists; thus, giving of themselves and their money.

Thank you, Amarillo, Texas.   I have some more great news to brag about, but will save it until tomorrow when I do my regular blog.  Look forward to seeing you all.

So here’s what has been happening in my world! We live in Oklahoma City–where Halloween time can be anywhere from a balmy 80 degrees to a freezing cold blizzard. With Oklahoma weather, there is no telling what will happen. A week ago today, a “bit of an ice storm” moved in–for THREE DAYS. Yes, for three days we had freezing rain, drizzle, sleet, and more of the same, over and over again. I thought we were going to lose our crepe myrtles we’d planted this year–the ice bent them completely to the ground.

We’d also planted a “bottlebrush” plant that we were anxious to see bloom–of course, it began to bloom about 3 days before the ice hit! Anyway–it’s all gone now, and today it’s 71 degrees! Luckily, we never lost our power. But there are still over 200,000 people here in Oklahoma who are still without it.

Three small crepe myrtles in front of that little fence are almost impossible to see they are so ice covered and weighted down.

Publisher’s Weekly has reviewed the upcoming December release of the first book in my Amish of Hope’s Haven series and they like it! Check out what they had to say HERE 


An Amish seamstress and a single father have a chance to make a fresh start in this heartwarming first novel of a new series.

Spirited, forthright, impulsive — everyone told Greta Eicher she’d have to change her ways if she ever hoped to marry. Then her best friend Calvin, the man she thought she would wed, chooses another woman. Now Greta’s wondering if the others were right all along. Her dreams dashed, she pours her energy into crafting beautiful quilts at her shop and helping widower Noah Stoll care for his adorable young children.

Noah knows it’s time to think about finding a wife. When Greta offers to play matchmaker on his behalf, Noah eagerly accepts. After all, no one knows his children better. But none of the women she suggests seems quite right, because, unexpectedly, his feelings of respect and friendship for Greta have grown into something even deeper and richer. But will he have enough faith to overcome the pain of his past and give love another chance?

Also, I have a new boxed set out, just in time for holiday reading.

I’ve had three back-to-back deadlines this year, which has kept me in my office day after day, week after week, month after month, with ver-ry few days off.

But I’ve finished the last book, turned it in two days early, and I can breathe again.  YEE-HAW!  I’m free!!

After I finish a book, I always thoroughly clean my office. I mean THOROUGHLY!  It’s like I’m shedding the world I was living in for months, sweeping away all the ideas, notes, and research books I used, all in preparation for clearing my mind and office for the next book and the new world waiting for me.

My office is my home within my home.  I pretty much live in my office.  Just ask my husband.

Here it is, freshly dusted, vacuumed and polished.


And these are the books I just finished in that sparkling clean office!

Mark your calendars! Tule Publishing is having a Christmas party with tons of giveaways all day long on October 7th at the Tule Book Club on Facebook. If you are not already a member, it’s easy to join

Also, I have a new release. A Home for the Holidays is a sweet Christmas romance that kicks off my Holly, Idaho series. The next two books are Once Upon a Winter Wedding, and V is for Valentine. I’m very excited for the this series. 

Jason Regan is a man on the go. Excluding his high school years in Holly, Idaho, he’s never settled in one place. Building his engineering company requires a lot of travel, so when he returns to Holly to visit his aunt and pay a decade-old parking ticket, he’s not planning to stay for Christmas. The judge’s ruling changes that—he’s assigned community service at an animal shelter requiring his skills.

Former lawyer Tess Evans moved home to pursue her true calling—managing the Forever Home Animal Shelter. The shelter is chronically underfunded and understaffed. So, to raise money and awareness, she organizes a ‘Home for the Holidays’ adoption event at Holly’s Christmas festival. Getting a skilled volunteer at such a critical time is a gift and Tess takes full advantage. Their to-do list is long, and not falling in love is number one.

As their attraction grows, they keep forgetting Jason’s stay in Holly is temporary. Can Tess, a lonely terrier named Neville and some Christmas magic change his mind?

You all know the problem with writing a LONG book? It takes a WHILE to finish it! So I don’t have new release right now to share, but…y’all know I always have DOG PICTURES, right? LOL We are getting ready for fall around here, though I hate to see summer leave. I don’t dress my dogs up for Halloween, because they would hate it. BUT–I DO buy them a holiday collar to get them in the spirit and give them a jaunty look!

Here’s Sammy in his Halloween “candy corn” collar, looking very dignified!
Max is dapper in his jack o’lantern collar–makes him feel frisky!
After chasing squirrels in the backyard, it’s time for a rest! That is hard work (but fun!)

We are ready for fall here in Oklahoma City, but though the nights are cool, we still have some good warm days ahead of us. Just the kind of weather these two love! Happy fall, everyone!

Brand new series!

Cupids & Cowboys

Book 1

I’m thrilled and honored to launch this fun new series!  The babies from the Bachelors and Babies series are all grown-up!

Charlie McQuade couldn’t be prouder of his older sister, Harriett, for starting her own cattle herd and wanting her own ranch.  Her future is bright and promising…except for the one thing she doesn’t have. A husband.

When Harriett learns the shocking secret her family has kept from her since she was a baby, she’s thrown onto the brink of scandal. Worse, she must make the hardest decision of her life for a man she’s never met.

U.S. Marshal Cord Brennan must escort a prisoner to Kansas before he can settle down and care for his crippled father in Texas. But the outlaw in his guard is desperate, and Cord’s careful plans soon threaten to fall apart.

Charlie has his work cut out for him. Can he convince Harriett that Cord would make the perfect husband? Can he keep Cord from going back to Texas? Time is running out…

Book 2 in my Hanger’s Horsemen series is finished!

It is always such a relief and a feeling of accomplishment to get a book turned in. August 15 was the deadline for the second Horseman book – The Heart’s Charge. I’m pleased to report that it is in my editors’ hands. This book was challenging but so rewarding to write. I can’t wait to share it with you!

This is my longest book to date at just under 103,000 words. The editing process might change that number, but I usually stay pretty close to my initial word count. This needed to be a bigger book with 4 POV characters and 2 full love stories going on side-by-side.

There are still several layers of polishing to be done before it is ready for public consumption, but the largest chunk of work is done. Hooray!

I am super excited to find Aiming for Love, book #1 in Brides of Hope Mountain series, is a finalist for a Maggie Award from the Georgia Romance Writers. It’s a mixed blessing though, because I wanted to go to the Moonlight and Magnolia Conference, I have some good writer friends in the area. And the conference is canceled!!! Boo! List of Finalists

I just learned that An Archer Family Christmas won the 2020 FHL Reader’s Choice Award for best novella. I’m thrilled! This story came about as a response to readers who clamored for more of the Archer Brothers series. I had so much fun reuniting the entire Archer clan and bringing an all-new adventure to their doorstep. My favorite part was meeting the next generation of Archers in the children who played a large role in the story. If you’re in the mood for some Christmas in July, grab a copy and enjoy!
