This was supposed to be my October blog post, but here we are in November already. How did the past month slip by so quickly? I’m so happy to announce the October release of my romantic suspense: FINAL REFUGE!
Here’s a quick preview:
Has the past caught up with her again?
Erin thought she’d found peace at last in this remote mountain town…until an intruder breaks in, but takes nothing. Is this yet another warning?
Her high school friend’s killer taunted her for five long years with anonymous, untraceable threats on that terrible anniversary. DON’T TELL. But then the messages stopped. If he has found her again will he try to finally finish what he started so long ago?
And what’s with the handsome guy who moved into the cabin next door? He seems so kind to the young boy with him, but he’s also clearly edgy. Is he the very threat she fears?

FINAL REFUGE is the first in a five-novel inspirational romantic suspense series titled Montana Secrets. The second book, FINAL CHANCE, will be released through Amazon on November 18th, 2021
The rest, FINAL PURSUIT, FINAL ESCAPE, and FINAL WITNESS, will all be released by mid-spring of 2022. Each can be read as a stand-alone novel.

- Mary P: I can still clearly remember learning to ride a bicycle. It was a woman’s bike and I was about seven. I had to stand so that I could use the pedals. I hugged a fence and held on to the fence to steady myself. Surprisingly it did not take too long before I was in full flight. I did eventually grow into the bike. I love landscapes on covers and portraits. Paintings are a great favorite.
- Kari B I have lots of great memories from my childhood, but I think one special one was when my sister and I rode in the back of a pickup truck (with a topper on) from Michigan to Texas to visit relatives. There may have been a lot of bickering, but there was also a lot of bonding and memories made during that long ride. My parents vowed never to take that long of a ride with kids ever again.
- Jackie W: As a budding artist I won many art awards in school A special one was the Freshman Art award in high school…special because there were so many other students who qualified for the award. I prefer book covers with scenery and animals on them. Especially horses and dogs. My friends know I will read ANY book that has a horse on the cover. It does influence whether I read the back cover blurb.
