Spring/Summer Newsletter 2023

Goodness! Where did the first part of this year go to? If you’ve noticed by the heading, I missed the spring issue of my newsletter. My apologies. Life got in the way, along with more health issues. As always, I believe I’m Wonder Woman and battle on through anything. Ha! This time, I was kicked to the ground. I required some rest, especially for the ongoing eye concerns. I won’t bore you with the details, my friends, so let’s move forward to the rest of this year! Lots of news, giveaways, and promotions!

May your summer be filled with lazy days, lots of sunshine, starry nights, and love.




I’m beyond thrilled to announce I’ve signed my 17th contract for Steinar, The Wolves of Clan Sutherland, Book 3 with The Wild Rose Press! Yes, the book is done and I’m in edits! Be prepared for an epic adventure with Steinar and Inga—both warriors who command the seas! Theirs is a journey of trust, but love manages to weave a charm around them. Here's a teaser...

To save the wolf, she must renounce her love for the man.

More news to follow in the autumn newsletter!
