I write romance stories about real-life issues that breathe God’s hope, light and possibilities into dark places.


My debut novel, By the Sea, has been selected as a finalist in the Selah Awards.

Alex Caine’s successful writing career and peaceful life becomes chaotic when his dog, Bailey, leads him to two young boys playing in the sand. Read the drama, romance and inspiration of Alex and Sarah as they renew their faith and trust God with their futures.

NEW BOOK RELEASE: JOURNEY TO HOPE: THE LEGACY OF A MAIL-ORDER BRIDE.


Upon the death of her grandmother, Boston socialite Cathleen Doyle resists her parents’ numerous attempts to find her a husband. While they are only interested in improving their social standing and increasing their financial holdings. Cathleen longs for someone to love her without consideration of her outward appearance or her hefty trust fund.

When she rejects every suitor, Cathleen’s parents insist she marry a man she only knows as an unscrupulous cad. Finding an advertisement for a mail-order bride in the Boston Globe, Cathleen jumps at the opportunity to escape the upcoming nuptials. She prefers her own marriage of convenience with a Wyoming rancher to a life of misery with a man she detest.

Secretly boarding the train in Boston, Cathleen’s journey is overshadowed by doubt and regret. As she weighs the consequences of her hasty decision, she remembers some of her grandmother’s last words–to trust her future to God.

With renewed hope, Cathleen steps off the train in Laramie and searches the crowd for the man she hopes to marry. Only minutes after her arrival, her fanciful dreams begin to crumble. Will Cathleen follow through with her plans to marry the handsome stranger? Does she have the courage and fortitude to survive as the wife of a cattle rancher?

Ben Sorenson turns away in anger when his father arrives at the ranch escorting yet another young woman in search of a husband. His father is convinced that only a mother can provide the love and care his children need. They had a good mother and Ben refuses to consider a replacement. And certainly not the spoiled rich girl his father helps from the wagon. Will Ben agree to marry the beautiful young woman or will he send her back to Boston where she belongs?

  6. I have a complaint – Where’s the rest of the book? I laid in bed after reading the first two chapters wondering… wishing and frustrated I wasn’t reading the “rest of the story”… Is there more that I haven’t found yet?
    Agh!
