    When I was younger, I watched this amazing animated series and then devoured the Jack McKinney novelizations. Somewhere along the way, I realized that the part I would discuss with my friends wasn’t the cool technology, or the amazing action sequences — I was pulled into the wonderful, painful love triangle between Lisa, Rick and Lynn Minmei. All that setting, and there is plenty, only mattered as to how it drove the characters together and apart. And thus an SFR aficionado was born.When...

My first YA novel is rockin' fire with five-star reviews, such as this one: "GRACE LOGAN AND THE GOBLIN BONES will enchant, entertain, keep you up late and make you wish there were more books like this one ... For anyone who loves Irish History, Fantasy, Faerietales, Young Adult Adventure, Folk Tales and well-crafted stories this book is a slam dunk!" -- Kimmy's Korner.

The burst of color and lower temperatures of fall and winter remind me to slow down and be grateful for life's little miracles. Long ago, our family decided to cut back on presents and concentrate on spending more time with each other, even if that means time-consuming travel. So when I was asked to contribute to an anthology called, CHRISTMAS HEARTWARMERS & HOLIDAY SMILES, my impulse was to say no. Then I learned the proceeds will go to St. Jude's Children's Hospital. Cancer touches all our lives---the first book in my Matchmaker Café series was inspired by my mother, who died of breast cancer. To help families with children suffering from cancer, consider this fun anthology for holiday gift-giving. And remember GRACE LOGAN AND THE GOBLIN BONES for those who enjoy YA novels, too!

When investigative reporter--and Finn's boss's sister--Gabby Rowley arrives, her unrelenting questions complicate an already volatile situation. Now that she's back, the tug on Finn's heart is strong, but with the risks she's taking for her next big story, he fears she might not live through it.
