I love to read, so I write the kind of novels I like best: thought-provoking, vibe-raising stories that leave me smiling when I close the book for the last time. If that's the sort of novel you enjoy, you've come to the right place. I wrote these with you in mind. Check out the Previews (below) and join me in some happy, relaxing reading time.
ALL of These SECRETS: The 1st Chesney Creek Novel: Millionaire Marik Palmer, a former teenager runaway, returns to Chesney Creek, but Shhh.... she doesn't want anyone to know about the money! Turns out she's not the only one with secrets to hide. Click Here to Preview
ALL of These CONNECTIONS: The Palmers of Chesney Creek are a close-knit family, but that doesn't mean there aren't conflicts, especially when the family expands to include in-laws. If you have in-laws, you probably know what we're talking about! There are plenty of challenges for The Palmer family's connections. Read more about them in this Click Here to Preview
ALL of These DECISIONS: Number 3 in the Chesney Creek series finds both Marik and Dahlia faced with romantic dilemmas as the men in their lives turn up the heat.

Dear Friends, You probably know me more for my novels than for my other literary work, but I've just completed a new editing project that might interest you. It's The Science of Getting Rich, for 21st century folks. This classic of prosperity literature was written back in 1910 - quite a different era! When I tried to read it, I bogged down immediately, bacause it was written for men. I had a fit of feminist fury and wanted to throw the darned thing across the room!
On the other hand, I'd heard a thousand times that this book really does reveal the secrets for improving our financial state, so I wanted to read it. I've been living with limited finances quite long enough! (You too?) The only way I could bear to read it, however, was by changing it up. When I say that the new version "...is for us 21st century folks ... " I mean that this new version has an inclusive perspective. Doesn't matter if you are a man, a woman, or undecided, the new Science of Getting Rich will appeal. I promise! Want to read the PREVIEW? It's RIGHT HEREon the website. Enjoy!
