New in Print!

For readers who love to hold a printed book, here’s my newest, finally in paperback. Fools.200x300,jpg

Fools For Love: 

For May Rose, it’s a summer of challenge and loss. Wanda and her family move away, love triangles confound her friends, and a competitor threatens the success of the boardinghouse. Then even more urgent matters arise—menacing waters, a demented woman, and the reappearance of a dangerous man.

Fools for Love is the seventh book in the Mountain Women Series, bringing to life the struggles, triumphs, friendships and loves of women in a small West Virginia town in the early 1900s.

Also in ebook format.

My fictional town is very real*

* Winkler, West Virginia, the setting of the Mountain Women stories, has always been very real in my imagination, and hopefully also in the minds of those who follow the series. In the stories, the town has had three lives–first as a logging town (book 1), then a ghost town (books 2 and 3), and in the most recent stories (books 4-7), a booming coal town.

Here’s a map of the 1920 coal town by West Virginia artist Ken Kreider.


Coming soon: a map of Winkler in 1900, the logging town of the first book in the series, The Girl on the Mountain.
