Just in – a map of Old Winkler

Finally, there are maps to guide a reader’s understanding of the town of Winkler, the setting for the Mountain Women Series. The newest map created by Ken Kreider shows Winkler in its heyday as a sawmill town, circa 1900. If you’ve read The Girl on the Mountain, notice the railroad track on the left that led to her mountain cabin. That track represents the road that brought logs down from the camps.

Note the company store and the church in the center of town, almost the only two structures that survived the floods and fires of later years. But that’s another story.

Readers have said they feel like they know this town and as they read they feel like they’re “there.” I hope this drawing comes close to their imaginings.

Stay tuned for more about Winkler, May Rose and her family and friends in Book 8 of the Mountain Women Series. And thanks for reading!

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.
