Rebecca Westbrooke has spent her life caring for the ranch her father built. Refusing to marry for security, she fights to hold on in the face of those who would prefer to see her lands controlled by a man. She still mourns the lost sister she loved but couldn’t understand.

Once they were twins, now they are strangers. Can they overcome a lifetime of pain and betrayal to unravel the mystery of their father’s death — before they become the next victims?

As Rebecca sets out on a business trip to Cheyenne, the clouds are already gathering. Powerful interests have the Westbrooke lands in their sites, and a hired killer is on her trail.

Bound by their lover for each other, torn apart by fear and doubt, the Westbrooke family must stand together against outside enemies and the betrayal of old friends.

Riding into the face of a blizzard that will change the west forever.

For the Love of the Game (LBGTQ sports romances)

Once a celebrated child prodigy, Blaise Noether is now a struggling widowed mom trying to keep her head above water while she pursues her Ph.D. Only two things make her really angry: her kid’s math textbooks and jocks. In her mind, all athletes are like the bullies who terrorized her in high school. So when she crosses paths with rising basketball star Christie Dillard, Blaise’s interest is a null set. Christie is everything Blaise fears, fiercely competitive, brashly confident, and totally devoted to her game. That she is also endearingly awkward and irresistibly gorgeous is irrelevant data.

But when Blaise glimpses a paradigm-shifting epiphany in the geometry of Christie’s jump shot, she begins to suspect this jock might be the missing variable that could balance the equation of her life.

Daisy Flowers is a one-time college pitching phenom whose career was sidelined by misogyny and transphobia. For over a decade she’s toiled away in the minor leagues, doing any job she can to stay in the game she loves. But her heart has grown bitter, and every fastball she throws is fueled by rage. When the Majors finally give her the call, she has only one dream left: to take on the entire baseball world and leave it scorched and ruined in her wake.

Jonas Sutton, in his third season in the Majors, is a talented player who has never quite lived up to his potential. Struggling to break through, but thwarted by the secret he can never reveal.

Daisy’s arrival, in the midst of a pennant race, with everything on the line and the bright glare of the spotlight burning all the time, ignites tempers and passion. She’s prepared to fight every inch of the way for the glory she deserves, and Jonas desperately wants to stand by her side.

But no matter how powerfully he’s attracted, Jonas knows Daisy is the fuse on the explosion that could blow his world apart.

Pistachio and Grant Comic Mysteries

If Lou Costello and Ally McBeal had a child, that kid might be Dora Grant.

A licensed attorney who has never tried a case, Dora is hampered by severe social anxiety. Living over her mother’s garage and sneaking out to perform on open mike nights at the local comedy club, she can face the world only with the help of her hand-puppet alter-ego Pistachio.

But when Pistachio agrees to take on the defense of a homeless man accused of murder, Dora is catapulted into a high-profile case, facing off against the District Attorney she blames for her father’s death.

So down the rain-soaked streets of Seattle, a puppet must go who is not at all fond of getting wet. And not about to take crap from anyone.

And coming in July 2021! Pre-Order now!

Still reeling from the fallout of her first major trial — and running from her brush with celebrity — Dora Grant agrees, against her better judgment, to accompany her new (boy?)friend David on a weekend birding cruise. Despite the fact that she doesn’t love water and Pistachio hates birds. It’s not long before David and Dora are fighting, and Pistachio is channeling the fearsome pirate Captain Greennuts.

Throw in an impossible murder, a hapless suspect in need of defense, a prosecutor who doesn’t believe Dora is an attorney, and a once-in-a-decade storm … and the ride is about to get rough for Greennuts and her crew.
