Coming this Christmas.

The Far Side of Heaven

A Christmas novella

Charlene survived a deadly fire that swept through the hills of a quiet little mountain town. With her ranch home destroyed she lives above her gift shop struggling to make ends meet and still recovering from a vile divorce.

Three days before Christmas, a brutal blizzard pounds the already despondent community, blowing in snow and with it, two skiers from the lodge.


Despite all that's happened, Charlene offers her hospitality. 


Will these men also fall to the pressure of the storm? Or should Charlene dare to hope for the Light and Love of Christmas?

I am currently taking a hiatus from book signings this year. I'm diligently working to have my most recent novel agented, and so I will be querying, revising, and rewriting. The drafts for books 2 and 3 are finished. This series is adult and not anything like my other YA fantasy novels,  but still filled with adventure, intrigue, and romance.

  • For your convenience you may order autographed print editions of all my books from this page on my website. 

  • My audio books are on Chirp.

  • Both paperback and digital titles at all venues can be found at Books2Read
