I'm a Virginia author of historical and Light paranormal romance. I also write creative non-fiction about gardening, herbal lore, and country life. The beauty of the Shenandoah Valley and surrounding mountains are my inspiration, as is Virginia's rich history. I'm passionate about the past, and those who have gone before us.



Married to my high school sweetheart, I live on a farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia surrounded by my children, grandbabies, and assorted animals. An avid gardener, my love of herbs and heirloom plants figures into my work. The rich history of Virginia, the Native Americans and the people who journeyed here from far beyond her borders are at the heart of my inspiration. In addition to American settings, I also write historical and time travel romances set in the British Isles.

My fascination with Colonial America, particularly stirring tales of the frontier and the Shawnee Indians, is an early and abiding one. My English, Scot-Irish ancestors had interactions with this tribe, including family members taken captive. In Red Bird’s Song, I honed in on my early American roots in a story featuring the Scots-Irish and an Indian attack that happened to my ancestors. Intrigued with all things Celtic, much of my writing features these early Scot-Irish forebears who settled in the Shenandoah Valley and surrounding mountains. This absorption with Colonial America also extends to the high drama of the Revolution and ancestors who fought on both sides of that sweeping conflict as depicted in Enemy of the King.

Moreover, I’m intrigued by ghost stories, and Virginia has more tales than any other state. I find myself asking if the folk who’ve gone before us are truly gone, or do some still have unfinished business in this realm? And what of the young lovers whose time was tragically cut short, do they somehow find a way?  Love conquers all, so I answer ‘yes.’ Equally fascinated with time travel, I write romance with forays into the past in my ‘Somewhere in Time’ series. In Somewhere My Lass, I journeyed back to 1602 Scotland and more deeply explored my Scottish roots.

­­­­­Recently I branched out beyond historical and light paranormal romance with a nonfiction book about country life entitled Shenandoah Watercolors, available at Amazon in kindle and print with lovely photographs.
