Up and Coming Release

Coming later this spring, Thorns In Eden & The Everlasting Mountains, a 2-in-1 collection will be released in Kindle and paperback. This is a reissue of one of my earlier books in a revised version.

An American patriot and an English high-born lady, hold fast to their love amid a harsh wilderness and the drumbeats of war.

I was really lucky to find the model for the cover and obtain permission from the photographer to use her image. My son designed the cover, changed the dress color to match the scenery. 

I'm excited to bring these two books back to my readers in one volume. It's a great time for authors. With the Amazon Kindle programs many of us are reissuing past titles that have been out of print for years, titles we never thought would be available to our fans again. 


Colonial born, but English bred, John Nash, seeks to build a new life in the Maryland frontier. In 1773 revolution is certain. Called Jack by his fellow patriots, he decides to return to England to see his family before the fighting begins. There he meets Rebecah Brent, whose dreams of happiness seem unattainable, until the day she meets the courageous patriot and they fall in love.

Trapped in the schemes of Rebecah's uncle, Sir Samuel Brent, they are forced apart. Jack has no other alternative than to return to America without Rebecah. There he becomes engaged in one of the most infamous Indian wars in Colonial history. His biggest battle is to let Rebecah go…a fight he knows he cannot win, as his love for her grows stronger.

Will love bring them together again? Will forgiveness strengthen the bond between them? And when faced with the trials of war, will a place called Laurel Hill remain their refuge?

If you would be willing to help get the word out about this book when it is released, please let me know. I'm putting together a list of bloggers who would be willing to post about the book. I'll have all you need. All you will have to do is cut and paste. 

Another way to help will be to post on Facebook, Goodreads, and Twitter. If you are a member of a book club, I can send you book club questions and bookmarks.
