Historical Romance Mail Order Bride Series Book 1 Published September 8, 2015, on Amazon.com!


With excitement in every breath I take, I am so happy to announce my First Publication of an historical romance at Amazon of Maggie and the Stubborn Swede, Book 1 in the Mail Order Bride Series.

I have been writing for as long as I can remember, sometimes academic, lots of blogs, a million or so ghostwriting pieces, but now, for the very first time in history, I get to see my name on a book cover. I can’t even find the right words, which for a wordsmith is terrible, to describe my elation.

I hope that you are a fan of Christian romance in an accurate historical setting, because that is my favorite to write. I spend hours of historical research through newspapers, court documents, photographs, archived diaries and letters to make my stories as real as possible. If I wrote the story, the incident did happen in a real situation and depending on the circumstances, sometimes I used the real names and sometimes they were fictitious.

If you read my books and enjoy them, please tell me. If you don’t like them, please tell me also, but in a nice way. I want to know what it does for you and where it fell flat.

You can email me at [email protected] and I will respond as best I can.
