I write romantic suspense and warm, family relationship type novels, often with a touch of humor. Many of my books have featured animals as key players--dogs, cats, llamas, cockatiels, horses...even our son's pet albino corn snake, Sssssid, who appeared in my first Superromance back in 1999.

Animals have been a big part of my life since I was a child. How about you? I hope you'll become a "blog follower" here (see the right-hand column for a place to click) and will come back often. So...let's talk about our pets!

FATAL BURN: A romantic suspense with vets, vet techs, humane shelters and more...

I've been thrilled to let you know about new releases by other authors, but today, I'm so excited about letting you know about my new book, which is out in the stores right now! The book features a vet tech with a troubled past, who has a chance to start her life over in the Montana Rockies.

Here's the backcover blurb:

Smoke and mirrors...
Someone's after Kris Donaldson, and he doesn't just want her hurt--he wants her ruined.  First, an arsonist destroys her home, and evidence points to Kris as being guilty of insurance fraud. Then a badly injured deputy is found at her place...and ballistics prove that he was shot with her rifle.  Even Trace Randall, the arson investigator who's helped her before, seems to doubt her now.  She has to prove her innocence, but how?

And now, her reputation, her life, and her chance for happiness with Trace are all on the line.

The book is available at places like Barnes and Noble, Walmart, KMart, Target, and many bookstores.  It's also available online at www.christianbook.com,  www.target.com,  www.steeplehill.com and other online sources for books.

I hope you'll enjoy it, and I'd love to hear what you think!


PS: If you are reading this on Facebook, this post is actually coming from my "All Creatures Great and Small" blog, where I love to run stories by readers and other authors,  stories from my own life in the country, and those from The Old Horse Trader.  So come on over!  :)

I hope you'll wander through the many past posts, including those that have been archived!

    Best wishes with your writing!
