Cover Reveal-The Captain and The Healer’s Heart


Ladies (because there’s a girl on the cover) and Gentlemen (because there’s a hot girl AND a space ship on the cover), may I present, my newest book, The Captain and the Healer’s Heart.

Back cover blurb

With an impending murder charge, Giada must escape Earth before the Amahrian enforcers find her. Desperate, she accepts an offer to be a StarBride to a wealthy governor on another planet. What she didn’t account for was the handsome and irksome pilot whose only thoughts are about profits.

Captain Skyler Rohn can’t go back to Earth; he’s a wanted man, and needs money to prove his innocence. When a job offer comes in that pays handsomely to transport a StarBride, Skyler can’t resist. His ship damaged, Skyler’s only choice is to land on a habitable moon before their oxygen runs out.

If only Giada and Skyler had met before she had agreed to be another man’s wife.

“A sweet romantic tale with adorable characters for people who enjoy reading light space opera.” Katie Teller, author of the Amazon best-selling Kiya Trilogy

Writing is way too much fun! But you know what’s even more fun? Publishing! This is my first Romance and my first Sci-Fi, though technically this is more space opera. I hope you’ll love reading it as much I did writing it!

Book Release-Feb. 24

So be sure and look for it on Amazon, CreateSpace, Barnes and Noble–you know, anywhere you might find awesome things to read!
I’ll keep you posted with links in future blogs.

Thanks, Electric Scroll! You ladies rock.

Oh, and don’t forget to subscribe. I’m still working on a free gift for those who do.

What I Never Expected


Last year I had every intention of publishing my entire series. I meant to write a book every two months. That meant six books in my series. Then life happened.

This is what I never expected of last year:

We moved

I threw my back out (who wouldn’t after moving)

I got sick

I got sick again

I flew to Oklahoma

While in OK, my brother was killed in a fatal motorcycle accident (How do you write after that?)

I spent many weekends working on our property

I traveled

I traveled some more (You have to when your son graduates with honors from the AF)

I became involved in my dad’s failing health

I lost my dad due to his failing health

I planned his funeral (I admit I did have sibling help) How do you write after that?

I helped my siblings fix his house (it’s still not finished) so we can sell it

We traveled some more

But the thing that mostly keep me from publishing was actually not the time spent not writing, it was:


Yes, terror at the thought of self publishing. What if readers hate my work? What if nobody will even buy a copy. I could what if myself forever.
January 1 rolled around-as it does every year–imagine that. I was determined this year to publish. But I could not do it alone, because I was still “SKEERED.
So I called my amazing friend at Electric Scroll.


She helped me indie publish The Penny Project. I couldn’t ask for that much help again. So I asked if her company would be interested in publishing my series.

Ann Jenner dropped everything, hand delivered a contract for book one, The Captain and the Healer’s Heart
That’s insane, who does that? Sight unseen?
I signed the contract.
I have now signed three more contracts for the next books.
I told her I have two more book ideas. She sent the contracts for those last week!

That’s insane, who does that? **This is author angst speaking here**
She read, edited, and loved book one!
I don’t have a publish date as of yet. But I do have a book cover, it just needs a little tweaking.
Next blog post, I promise, you’ll get the reveal!

In the meantime let me tell you, that I have finished Book Two and am working on the revisions. They should be done by the beginning of next week.

I expect this year to be amazing!
