Swash_ornamentDear Readers,

PrintAs a young woman I traveled around the world—by myself. I suppose that’s a big reason I love stories that ‘take me away.’

ONCE UPON A SUMMERTIME: A New York City Romance features a boutique hotel in Soho and a hopeful young woman named Anna. Although life doesn’t go quite as planned, Anna experiences a sweet taste of the Big Apple.

Dear Reader,

1001 Dark Nights_Heather Graham_300dpiDevin Lyle and Craig Rockwell are back, this time to a haunted castle in Ireland where a banshee may have gone wild —– or maybe there’s a much more rational explanation —– one that involves a disgruntled heir, murder, and mayhem, all with that sexy light touch Heather Graham has turned into her trademark style.

Please write to [email protected] to win one of five copies.

Heather Graham no 1


Dear Readers,

wildinsideWhere I come from – the US’s northern Continental Divide – anytime anyone mentions a grizzly encounter, all ears tune in. In THE WILD INSIDE, National Parks Service special agent Ted Systead must go to the last place he wants to be – the stunning, haunting Glacier National Park, where at age fourteen he witnessed his father being mauled and killed by a grizzly.

Twenty years later, Ted’s search for a killer forces him to face the perilous, unforgiving intersection between man and nature.

THE WILD INSIDE is a Mystery Guild featured alternate selection for the month of July, and Publishers Weekly calls it an “evocative debut,” that “paints a moving picture of complex, flawed people fighting to make their way in a wilderness where little is black or white, except the smoky chiaroscuro of the sweeping Montana sky.”

Write me at [email protected] for a chance to win 1 of 5 copies!

Thank you,
