CHRISTMAS DANGER, Southwest Peril Book 1

After facing a terrible loss two years ago, pediatrician Johanna Miles hopes to find healing and a new beginning by moving west. But will this decision be the last one she makes?

She plans to cover a pediatric clinic in the mountains of New Mexico for three months while the physician is away. An escape artist of a horse and a Great Pyrenees pup the size of Texas are all the family she needs now---or so she thinks, until she meets a rancher who couldn't be more wrong for her. After a little pink bundle is left on his doorstep, it shows her just how irresponsible he is. Definitely not her type.

But when a stranger begins threatening both her and the clinic, dangers mount. Will she be able to keep her patients safe?  And who can she turn to for help?

A heartwarming story of honor, love of family, and ties that bind through generations, even through life's most difficult challenges.

Character inspiration propels my story.

When I get an idea for a story, I begin by scribbling copious notes that will eventually get fine-tuned as I work out my loose plotting. Besides filling up notebooks, another must for me is finding inspiration for my characters. I'm a visual person, and having an individual or a couple, even a setting to look upon, spurs my writing. And besides, it's plain fun!

I want to introduce to you, my characters, Kayli and Summer, from my new release, LOVE ON THE CATWALK. This romantic comedy, an opposites-attract, was such a joy to write, as shy Kayli and confident Summer, find balance and love with one another. Filled with humor and steam, this novella is the perfect snack when you're in need of a short and satisfying break.

Available at Evernight Publishing and most digital retailers.

I'm so thrilled to share the recently designed cover of my next psychological thriller, BETWEEN TWO STRANGERS (May 16).

It's the pulse-pounding story of a struggling artist named Skyler Moore, who receives a bewilderingly large, life-changing inheritance from a man she spent a single night with twelve years ago--and she has no idea why.

As Skyler digs for the truth, overwhelmed with a desire to understand the man's motivation, it becomes clear that he might have taken other secrets to the grave, secrets that could have terrifying consequences for her.

"Love Plans" from Two Romance Authors

Paranormal romance author Cathryn Marr, a writing team made up of Dawn Johanson and Terese "Terey" Ramin, have varying levels of enthusiasm about Valentine's Day. But, they agree on this---everyone should celebrate the holiday with a "love plan" that's all about self love!

A "love plan" should recharge a person's internal bank and could include anything that brings joy, peace, or happiness---a massage, a favorite bakery treat, a trip to the local bookstore, or a walk through a public garden.

Dawn says, "My 'love plan' often includes time with my grandkids, but for a special treat for myself, I love a manicure or pedicure. They are a wonderful way to relax and restore."

Terey says, "I love going out for a latte and a writing binge at my favorite coffee shop. It's those moments of brief escape, running away, and changing the scenery that rejuvenates me better than anything."
