    My writer's group, Northern Lights Writers, will be hosting a Author's Night at the Giese Memorial Library at 26855 Forest Blvd. Wyoming, Minnesota 55092 on Tuesday, May 12 at 7:00 pm. There will be an author panel on writing and publishing with a Q & A session, a gift basket drawing and book signing with 8 local authors. I would love to meet you, so step up and say Hi.

Writing News:

    I have been busy working on a new book about a girl from North Dakota, a Duke from England and a jewel thief who's caught in the middle and threatens their lives and relationship. Sometimes wanting to be noticed can draw more attention then you bargained for. 

    I have to admit I would probably write faster if I didn't enjoy the research so much! I love reading anything in connection with England, Scotland and Ireland. 

    I hope you enjoy reading the short synopsis I have posted about each of my published stories. I love hearing from you, so keep the emails coming.  

Personal Interests:

   I have been dabbling in my family's genealogy lately and I have to admit that I've come across a couple of real characters. One great or maybe it was a great-great grandfather's name was, Godfrey Cornelius Dohoo.  I remember my mother once saying that she had wanted to name one of my brother's Cornelius, I guess my father own that one.   

    Sometimes a story will come to me with the character's names and a bucket full of information. But sometimes I have to come up with their names on my own. It's fun figuring out just who my character are, what he or she does for a living and where they are from. You need to know all of these things, so you can give them the appropriate names.   
I am also a member of Northern Lights Writers -a local chapter of
Romance Writers of America.

                 Romantic Suspense Novels About Independent Country Girls 

​ "You can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl" is the perfect description of me and the extraordinary, adventurous and fun loving women I write about. The women in my novels are strong, independent country girls, who find themselves in strange predicaments with men, who definitely have the makings of true heroes.

  Some of my favorite things to do are herding cattle in Montana, snowmobiling in Wyoming, gardening and writing romantic suspense novels. Many of my stories stem from a combination of past experiences and a lot of wishful thinking. I've been writing since 1996, but I've been dreaming up wild adventures my whole life.
