The Songbird

WingS Of The WeSt SeRieS Book 6

Read now!!

Join characters from the Wings of the West series in this BRAND NEW novella set fifteen years after THE WREN.

A fair in Denton, Texas, draws folks from far and wide, and Matt and Molly Ryan have come to close a horse deal while also enjoying a bit of rest and relaxation. It’s a family affair with Matt’s brother, Logan, and his wife, Claire, joining them, as well as Nathan and Emma Blackmore, and Cale and Tess Walker.

Meet the daughters of the second generation—Katie and Josie Ryan, belonging to Matt and Molly; and Anna, Sarah, and Sophie Ryan, Logan and Claire’s girls. Ranging in age from eleven to fourteen, they attempt to help a boy falsely accused of theft, but in doing so they uncover a deeper secret. And the connection may lead back to Molly’s time with the Kwahadi Comanche when she was a child.

Look for each of the girls to be featured in a future novel.

Available at Amazon US, Amazon UK, Amazon CA, Amazon AU, Amazon DE (English version), Apple Books, Nook, Kobo, and Google Play. Also in paperback.

Pre-order now!!

Colorado 1899

Kate Ryan has always had a streak of justice in her. When she decides to apply to the Pinkerton Detective Agency, nothing will stand in her way. Initially hired in a clerical position, she quickly works her way up to field agent with the help of her mentor, Louise Foster. When Louise is injured, Kate gets her first assignment and the opportunity of a lifetime.

Henry Maguire has been undercover in the household of wealthy cattleman Arthur Wingate. Employed as a ghostwriter to pen the man’s memoir, Henry is also searching for clues to a lucrative counterfeiting scheme. When Henry’s “wife” shows up, he’s taken aback by the attractive woman who isn’t Louise. Now he must work with a female agent he doesn’t know and doesn’t necessarily trust. And because he has another reason for coming into Wingate’s world, Kate Ryan is unavoidably in his way.

Kate Ryan is the daughter of Matt and Molly from THE WREN, and THE STARLING is the first of five novels featuring the second generation of Ryans in the Wings of the West series.

Pre-Orders are available at Amazon US, Amazon UK, Amazon AU, Amazon CA, Amazon DE (English version), Apple Books, and  Nook.

Cold Horizon

I'm excited to share that Cold Horizon has won the 2021 NERFA award for Romantic Suspense!! I'm so thrilled!! The National Excellence in Romance Fiction is sponsored by the First Coast chapter of Romance Writers of America in Jacksonville, Florida.


I'm so happy you're here, and I hope you'll spend some time looking around. I write historical western romances and am known for my Wings of the West series - a gritty, romantic, and sometimes mystical set of five books, along with several shorter works. I'm currently working on expanding the series, so stay tuned for more bird novels in 2022! (Side note: After I published The Bluebird, I truly felt the series was done. But never say never. The next set of books will star several daughters of Matt and Molly from THE WREN and Logan and Claire from THE DOVE.)

I also write contemporary adventure romances. The Pathway Series currently has three books - DEEP BLUE (the other side of Jaws), COLD HORIZON (drama and romance on K2, the second highest mountain behind Mt. Everest), and ANCIENT WINDS (my Indiana Jones meets The X-Files romp). These books are mainly driven by my curiosity, and my goal is to give you a story with high adventure and sexy romance. Definitely the type of books I like to read! And more will be coming in the series.

I have a few exclusive short reads for my newsletter subscribers, so I hope you'll consider signing up. I usually send out an email once a month. And if you're looking to purchase an autographed print book, please check out my Etsy shop.

My work is available wide with the exception of ALICE: BRIDE OF RHODE ISLAND and ROSEMARY, which are in the Kindle Unlimited program. You can find my Wings of the West novels as well as my Pathway series at Amazon, Apple Books, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, Google Play and Scribd.

The easiest way to keep up with my latest releases (besides my newsletter) is to follow me at Amazon and/or BookBub. And I'm now on TikTok, which I'm having a lot of fun with. I have to remember to talk books and not post every day about my dogs lol.

Stay Groovy,


What am i currently working on?

I recently completed a long novella in my Wings of the West series titled THE SONGBIRD. It features Matt, Molly, and the other main couples from the series fifteen years later. It also introduces five daughters: Katie and Josie (from Matt and Molly), and Anna, Sarah, and Sophie (from Logan and Claire). They'll each have their own future novel. The first one stars Katie Ryan as a Pinkerton detective and will release in August 2022.

I'm continuing to work on The Pathway Series. I've done preliminary research and writing on the next novel, COBALT SEA, which stars Chloe Mann (Grace's sister from DEEP BLUE) and her quest to decipher the language of sperm whales. I've also (finally) found a story for Dr. Missy Rembert (Grace's best friend), so I've been roughing out a first draft. It will be a long novella titled SAPPHIRE WAVES. More on that to come. I also joined a Valentine anthology collection of contemporary short stories (to be released February 8, 2022), and I've just finished the story - SHARK REEF - featuring great white sharks in New Zealand and a fun friends to lovers journey between Gabe O'Grady and Jen Fairfield.

There will be new translations coming in 2022, including the German version of THE BLUEBIRD and Italian versions of THE DOVE and THE SPARROW.

Thanks so much for reading!!
