Welcome to my web page



I'm a multi-published author, both with big and small presses, and hope you'll take a look at my books. For my classic Regencies, please go to Classic Regencies .





I'm happy to announce my latest book, Looking for Lucky has just been published. Basically it's the story of a lost dog, but there are so many elements to the story, it's hard to know where to begin. Suffice to say, although I've published many books, some with major publishers, Looking for Lucky is a departure from my usual romances. Currently it's available in Ebook format at Amazon Kindle. It's also available in print format at the Createspace Store      




             Deadly Gamble 


Can a luxury hotel/casino on The Strip in Las Vegas, Nevada, possibly be haunted? Deadly Gamble is a contemporary paranormal romance with plenty of twists and turns.  It's available lots of places, including

Amazon Kindle

The Last of lady Lansdown

 First place (GOLD) winner in the Romance category of the 2013 Independent Publisher (IPPY) awards!

    In the dawn of the Regency era in Northern England, precious few mourn the sudden and shocking passing of the Earl of Lansdown. Certainly not Jane Elton, the young and beautiful widow whose life he made a misery. After her initial relief, Jane must contend with an unexpected and devastating reality: because she is childless, she and her family must descend several rungs down the social ladder.


     One hope remains. Could she be pregnant? A son would inherit; otherwise the title and estate will go to the Earl’s slightly younger twin brother, his greedy wife, and many unpleasant offspring. Jane must also contend with the unrealistic hopes of her bitter and ambitious mother and dowerless sister.

     Enter Douglas Cartland, a notorious rake with a tragic past. During these first months of widowhood, Jane’s conduct must be above reproach, but she cannot keep her distance. Especially when Cartland contrives to turn up everywhere she looks.

     Is Cartland really the scoundrel everyone believes him to be? Will Jane forfeit her title, her family’s fortunes and her reputation for the sake of forbidden desire?

     Fate—and Cartland—have many surprises in store.


Note:  Unlike the sweet, traditional Regencies I wrote in the past, Lady Lansdown is larger and definitely more for adults only.
