Can he put his mistakes behind him?
After escaping a horrible foster home thirteen years ago, Sawyer Murphy has made a new life for himself, working as a cop in Chattanooga Tennessee. But the truth of the night he and his foster siblings escaped the fire, haunts him. He’s never told anyone his secret, one he is determined to take to his grave. When he rescues Naomi Palmer from the men who’d kidnapped her, he risks his career, and his life to help her find the men responsible.
Naomi is determined to find her half-sister Kate, who disappeared from Dalton, Georgia without a trace. Even when danger followers her every move, Naomi refuses to lose hope. Sawyer’s determination to find the men responsible is a blessing, and she soon loses her heart to the solitary cop. Can she convinced Sawyer to forgive himself long enough to accept her heart?
I’m often asked when I started writing and I have to be honest, I can’t remember when I wasn’t writing. I loved books as a kid and like many authors I ran out of stories that I liked to read so I began to make up my own. I wrote my first teen novel when I was thirteen and my first romance when I was seventeen. Of course neither manuscript was very good, but I never gave up and after I finished Graduate school I decided to take some time for myself and get back to my writing. I’m so glad I did! I grew up reading faith based books by Grace Livingston Hill so writing for Love Inspired Suspense is a dream come true. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them. I currently live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with my husband of thirty-three years. My daughter Nicole is married to a wonderful man named Mike and my son Jonathan is a Registered Nurse at the same hospital where I work. I’m so blessed to have such a wonderful family. I’m a dog lover and had to put my Westie named Mac down a year or so ago. I still miss him but now have a chance to dog sit for my sisters and brother. I try to incorporate pets in my my stories as much as possible In May of 2017 I was the humble recipient of the Wisconsin Romance Writers Lifetime Achievement Award. I’m blessed to be a member of such an amazing group!
