In Florida, pretty, dark-haired, blue-eyed real estate broker Madeline Pruett learns that the father she never knew has passed away and has left her a Colorado ranch.

Deadlines and Dogs

 

Moose If you know anything about me at all, then you know about my dog, Moose. He’s my housemate, running partner and consummate television companion.  I don’t really think he enjoys watching all those reality t.v. shows with me but if I have to put up with his constant gas, I think it’s only fair that I get to control the remote. As with most couples, Moose and I share a bit of a love/hate

Amazing Fans

MichaelLeahCollage

I have totally awesome fans! Since the re-release of my Over the Edge series (Formerly Thrillseekers Anonymous) I’ve had a couple fans tell me the second book in the series, ONE MORE NIGHT  (formerly Extreme Bachelor) is their very favorite of all my contemporaries. I was blown away when they gifted me with this fabulous book art using quotes from my book. 

Change is a Good Thing, Right?

Collage I’m happy to announce that I sold a previously published trilogy, Thrillseekers Anonymous, to Montlake to reissue.  They had a great idea on how to reach a wider audience:  Change the name of the series to OVER THE EDGE, change the titles, and give them all beautiful new covers.  They’re out today! This started me thinking about changes I’ve experienced this past year, some small and some large. The first

Writing and Riding

My apologies for not checking in sooner! 2013 has been a whirlwind so far! I've been working on four different manuscripts because I am cray-cray, not to mention writing new proposals and dreaming up a few novellas along the way because I like to think I don't have enough to do.  (Geez, was I always like this?  Who knows?  I can't remember anything anymore). What I do remember is that I just completed the final edits on my new contemporary, Homecoming Ranch. It has a release
