Thank you for visiting my website. Sit back, relax and let me take you on a journey to my world.
Woven throughout my website are the answers to why I love to write as well as the reasons for my fascination with the paranormal. In addition, I’ll let you in on a little secret. I only write about places I have actually visited, so here you’ll discover pictures of my travels to Urquhart Castle in the mist-shrouded Highlands of Scotland. This castle was the setting for my first book, THE INSCRIPTION. While writing the book, I fell in love with my hero, and it was difficult to say goodbye to him. He had spent all his life protecting and caring for others, with little time to find love for himself. I decided my heroine in The Inscription would teach him how to love. (And in my latest novel, MY SECRET PROTECTOR, the story of the MacAlpin Clan continues.)
My second novel, THE QUEST, takes place in Edinburgh, a city where times stands still. My hero is a quarterback for a professional team in today’s world of Seattle, a man very impressed with himself. Then zap, he’s pulled back in time by a sorceress who needs a warrior to save her mother. He soon discovers that my heroine is not impressed with how accurately he can throw a football. All she wants to know is can he wield a sword. I loved the fact that he had to prove himself to her. It was a fun book to write.
Edinburgh is also the setting for “The Matchmaker,” a story in the New York Times best-selling anthology, A SEASON IN THE HIGHLANDS. I really felt like a matchmaker while writing this story. I sent two professional people back in time together. As the book begins, the town matchmaker is quite frustrated with this modern generation and their excuses that they just don’t have the time for love. Well, she showed them, and my hero and heroine have to work together to find their way back to the present. However, the real prize is discovering they love each other.
THE ENCHANTMENT, published by Pocket Books in September 2001, takes place in Inverness, Scotland. It, too, was a fun book to write. I wanted to discover what would happen if I plunged a fourteenth century Highland warrior into the twenty-first century. My warrior appears in the here and now, out of nowhere, wielding an ancient sword. So my heroine does the normal thing under the circumstances. She has him arrested. When he is released, he discovers showers (much to my heroine’s delight) — and pizza. Their adventure together takes them back to his world, where they learn the true meaning of love.
The picture of me in Ireland, on my scrapbook page, is a hint at the setting for my next novel. While my husband and I were busy snapping photos of castles, rugged cliffs and rolling hills, the Leprechauns were hard at work whispering in my ear. I had no other choice than to put it down on paper.
Through my stories, I try to show what I believe – that time is an illusion and love, the only reality.
