a young adult paranormal book on the Salem Witch Trials! The Circle Girls: Once
Upon a Witch will release in late 2012 through Pelican Book Group’s upcoming
new YA line, Watershed. Since I’ve worn a Stetson ever since my first book
years ago and think I’ve developed a Western brand, my editors and I decided on
a different pen name for this new venture. (There’s talk it could be a series.)
I think we got it, a riff on my name and a hint at my
ancestral heritage. And here’s the to-die-for cover.
While you’re thinking on it, I’ll mention Redeeming Daisy,
Book Two in my Hearts Crossing Ranch series at Pelican Book Group. This story
has its roots in the loss of our own precious black Labs.
Here’s the blurb: Veterinarian
rancher Pike Martin has no choice but to advise putting down Daisy Denmore’s
fatally ill dog, but she swears it's revenge for her mistreatment of Pike's
brother years ago. Although stung by her insult at his professionalism, Pike
finds himself drawn to the troubled woman who flounders in faith and aches for
love and acceptance.
Costly mistakes have sent Daisy down an
unrighteous path. Abandoned by her ex-husband, humiliated and broke, she has no
choice but to return to her parents’ home in Mountain Cove, Colorado. As soon
as she saves enough money, though, she'll be gone. Until Pike Martin's soft
voice, caring manner, and downright empathy for her wounds tempt her to stay.
With God on his side, can Pike help Daisy
along the path to forgiveness, trust, and whole-hearted love?
