2 Days left in my Kindle Scout campaign: “Love Me Forever” could use some lovin’…


Yes, I’m down to the last two days of my Kindle Scout campaign for LOVE ME FOREVER I’ll miss my daily rendezvous with everyone…checking the Hot list…fretting, and then cheering when I’m on it.

As fellow author Fiona Quinn so wisely tweeted: “It’s nail biting time…”

Ah, yes…and so with the brazenness of an Irish lass with her lilting brogue and a twinkle in her eye, I’m askin’ ya, if you like Civil War time travel romance, check us out now, will ya? And if it be pleasin’ you, toss us a vote!!


She wore gray.
He wore blue.
But their love defied the boundaries of war.
And time.


LOVE ME FOREVER is on Kindle Scout — you can read the first 5,000 words HERE. You’ll meet both my heroines and both my heroes in the excerpt. If you nominate my story and it’s published by Kindle Scout, then you’ll receive a free copy!

It’s a saga of love and romance and war. Believe me, I walked every road, fought every battle with my characters, even walked around in a hoop skirt to “get it right.”

This is a book of the heart…any questions? Please ask!!

I’ll be back tomorrow with more about LOVE ME FOREVER and the Civil War…

If anyone feels like sharing a vote…I’ll be forever grateful! I’d love to get back on the HOT list at Kindle Scout!!  

Thank you for your support…

National Roots Day…and the Irish

Like my heroine, Kacie Bennett in COME FLY WITH ME, my roots are Irish.

I was fortunate to go searching for my roots with my family. I remember the city of Belfast when it was filled with strife and the “Troubles,” a time when my da convinced the local authorities he was an American tourist and not the man they were looking for by pointing to his Made in the USA sneakers. And when my beautiful mum went to buy some lace and minutes after she left the shop, the street was blown up.

Another time we found ourselves stuck at a checkpoint behind a horse and wagon, and later on we feasted on the best breaded chicken dinner I’ve ever had.

This was Ireland on a cloudy day when the air was heavy with the smell of the earth fresh from the rain, when the blanket of green covering the land was so bright it made your eyes hurt. And when the wildflowers I picked made me think of sweet kisses from the handsome lad who’d winked at me.

I always say our roots are like the first chord of a lovely melody.

It’s a start, but it’s up to each of us to write the song of our life…

What are your roots?

Happy Holidays!!

The Princess and the Magic Shamrock for St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

So how could I not put up a Princess video with a magic shamrock theme?

Here is the latest in my “Princess Chronicles” — video romance poems about being a princess. In this story, we meet a princess who’s not looking for a prince but a job!!

Imagine if you’re a Princess and you’re out of work. What do you do? Pawn your tiara? Sell your glass slipper on eBay?

What if a fairy tells you a magic shamrock can give you the courage you need to find a job? Find out what happens in “The Princess and the Magic Shamrock.”
