I’m thrilled to be a part of Cowboy Kisses! I write historical western romance. My heroines are clever and strong as they battle to guard their hearts from the irresistible hunks of the Wild West.

I’ve been a member of Romance Writers of America (RWA) and my local chapter, Wisconsin Romance Writers of America (WisRWA). And served as President of WisRWA from 2016-2018. And the 2019 winner in the Utah Great Beginnings Contest with The Bounty's Catch.

I began my writing journey 14 years ago when my children were young. At first, I worked on it part time and when they became teenagers, I worked longer hours on writing. I published my first book, The Bounty’s Reward, in my Runaway Outlaws series on March 25, 2020.  

I’m a “homebody” and can often be found working at my desk and spending time with my family. I love working in our family garden and tending my flowers, roses being my favorite! I live at the southern edge of Door County, Wisconsin, with my husband, two children, our dog and cats.

Runaway Outlaws Series

But, when Liam Holt arrives in Helena, Montana with a motive to not only track down an outlaw but escape a life of privilege. At least long enough for him to figure out what he wants.

When Liam meets Ellie Beckett his plan spins out of control. With danger lurking, he wants nothing more than to protect her. For the first time in his life, he knows what he wants and that is to make the fiery red-head his. Though she refuses to make this an easy task, he's determined to win her heart.

As the pages turn, sparks fly, igniting a fire between them not even they can stop. Will love win or will unforeseen circumstances keep      them apart?

Victoria Beckett wanted a change in her life. When she spots a boarding house for sale, she decides it's the change she was looking for. However, her dream is quickly dashed when a banker suggests finding a husband would help secure the loan. Bristled by his suggestion, she departs, determined to find another way.

Gavin McCoy believed an ill-fated event in his life was just that, a single incident. He's convinced his life will go on as usual until Victoria Beckett arrives in Hamilton. This determined woman insists she's his bodyguard and believes an unseen danger is still lurking. Gavin is determined to convince her otherwise.



Duke Logan, a down-on-his-luck treasure hunter, was more determined than ever to find the elusive Captain’s Loot treasure. His father’s death spurred him on to find the missing clue necessary to solve the old outlaw legend. His adventure is only beginning when he shows up in the Montana Territory seeking the information he desperately needed. Instead, he finds a feisty dark-haired beauty who refuses to hand over the clue. Will Duke convince Sam to join him in the quest to find the lost treasure? Or will the treasure forever be lost?

Samantha (Sam) Beckett has successfully carved out a new life for herself, as a single woman. She swore off any man who wanted something from her. There was no chance of saying “I do” in her future. When Duke Logan shows up in town, wanting the very thing she yearned for, she digs in with more determination than ever. She refuses to lose out on the tantalizing dream of finding treasure she herself had searched for.

Their treasure hunt will thrill you as Duke and Sam dodge booby-traps, fight rival treasure hunters, and follow a worn treasure map leading them past betrayal, greed, and a centuries old legend more dangerous than they could have imagined.

Will Duke and Sam fall in love with more than a dream of holding the lost Captain’s gold? Or become yet another long line of cursed souls?

COMING in 2022!
