An author wants to share her work with new readers, so I gave away three autographed print copies of my sweet novella Love, Hamish.

Where did the Summer go?

I will miss summer even though a majority of August showed temperatures in the 90s. I never made it to the beach, either. Weekly dips in the indoor pool at the gym were okay, but I miss not living closer to the ocean. 

Saying that, I must remember that a few hurricanes missed us here in Raleigh, North Carolina by inches. I am sorry for the folks that suffered the ravages of storms, floods, and fires and I am thankful every day that my family and relatives are fine. 

Get ready for winter by stocking up on books. My latest book, now available in print, is LOVE, HAMISH.

The Return of Scottish Highland Games

The pandemic has canceled so many events, but a few festivals in America are making abbreviated comebacks. Event listings can change on a dime, so it is best to do your own research before planning to attend.

Here are a few that ARE scheduled:

New Hampshire Highland Games will be held on Sept. 17-19 (canceled last year) My sources claim that tickets are sold out and NO tickets will be available at the gate. Make a note to attend in 2022 when, hopefully, the pandemic will bring everything back to normal.

Swamp Fox Highland Games will be held in Florence, SC September 25, 2021

Prescott Arizona Celtic Festival  will be September 25-26 2021

Celticfest Mississippi on the Rez  will be October 23-24 2021

Celtic Classic Highland Games in Bethlehem, PB will be October 24-26

Charleston SC Highland Games will be held November 6 2021

This is a very short list for something so popular in America, but the pandemic is the biggest reason against bringing thousands of people together. So, if you can attend such an event, wear a mask and keep hugs to yourself.

Stay safe!

Look what just arrived!

I finally found a minute during a very busy summer to format and upload my sweet historical novel, LOVE, HAMISH so I could have print copies made available to my readers. This novella is set in Scotland and the ebook sells well, but some people (myself included) enjoy the feel of a paperback book. 

Book Blurb for LOVE, HAMISH

What happens when Daisy, a young Scottish seamstress, meets a Highlander visiting Gretna Green? Action, turmoil, murderous intentions, and love. The love for the bull, Hamish, surprises her and intrigues Torin, his owner and protector. In this sweet novella, protecting Torin and Hamish keeps Daisy on her toes while a less than gentlemanly lord gives them all trouble. Leave it to the huge yet gentle Hamish to bring Daisy and Torin together. Forever.

Consider ordering the print version. My copies are headed to family and friends but if you want an autographed copy, send me an email at with your mailing address and I will quote you a reasonable price.

Stay safe!

Lovin' Summer and a Book


I am headed to the gym to exercise (with mask) then take a dip in their indoor pool (without a mask). I use a noodle to continue my exercises instead of swimming laps (I like to keep my glasses on). 

I grew up near the water on the north side of Long Island and the summer was also filled with a carload of kids heading to Fire Island. Love me some waves!

Our move to North Carolina has placed us a good 4 hours from the ocean, so the salt water pool is a fine substitute.

Labor Day here in the US is the official end of summer and it falls on September 6th. Besides READING BOOKS ALL SUMMER, what are you doing to keep your self active and healthy?

psst. my novella LOVE, HAMISH is now available IN PRINT. it is a sweet historical romance and can fill those summer evenings. 

Stay safe!

My Visit with the Australian Romance Readers Association

I enjoy the Australian Romance Readers Association which operates 'down under' which is half a world away from where I live and write in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA. They are nice enough to host me whenever I have a new book release. My latest book is The Duke's Diamond and I wrote a piece for them that I will share here:

Once upon a time, while I was reading an article about famous gems, I discovered a treasure associated with The Hope Diamond. The mentioned stone, a blue diamond that flashed red under certain conditions, was originally mined in India and called The Tavernier Blue. It made its way into the possession of King Louis XIV, but disappeared around 1791. Stolen, the rumors say. Le bleu de France or The French Blue as I call it in my Treasure Tales series, is famous, or should I say infamous. Supposedly, it had been cut into three chunks.


Some say The Hope Diamond is one of those chunks. Since the originally mentioned blue gem disappeared in 1791 and my stories take place in 1816-1817, I took the liberty of hiding all three stones. In The Earl’s Treasure, released last December, the first stone is found hidden by a dead man in a barn. In The Duke’s Diamond, the second stone is hidden… well, you will have to read the book to find out!


Placing an earl and now a duke in peril during a treasure hunt came to me quickly, but the books themselves took time to write. A pandemic did not slow me down, but caring for my health and those of my family were tough. With luck, readers will check out the novella Love, Hamish whose characters are mentioned in both of my full-length novels especially a big, red, hairy Highland bull. The Duke’s Diamond is my 40th published book and I hope its plot, characters, and locations in England and Scotland keep readers amused and entertained.
