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?

Whereas I still have YA fantasy books available and will someday finish the last installment of Ian's Realm, I have been testing the waters for Romance Fiction.


The fantasy series I'm querying is a fantasy romance. The Far Side of Heaven is a contemporary romance, and I am currently working on a paranormal literary romance titled Hoarfrost to Roses


I have been accepted as a member of Romance Writers of America and look forward to working with them.
