Safe with the Rancher

a Sierra Legacy Series

short story

​​​Thank you for visiting my home on the web! 


I write books with wide skies, romantic western settings, small towns and the occasional big city. Most of all, I tell heartfelt stories of people finding hope, home and happily-ever-after. 


These days I'm working on a series set in a fictional Northern California town that I've named Shelter Creek. The stories are very emotional and romantic, but fun too! There are ranchers trying to make ends meet, and scientists trying to protect local wildlife, and all kinds of quirky, small-town characters getting involved as well. I'm thrilled that this sweet romance series is so well received by readers!

Warmest wishes,

Finding hope, home and happily ever after.
