For years I've been fascinated by the puzzle of why some people collapse under life's traumas and others emerge triumphantly stronger. These triumphs of the human spirit over the ugliest of adversities became the basis for my stories. Yet my dramatic stories have always contained touches of humor, and sometimes I have great fun writing romantic comedy novellas. However, in all my stories, my passion for writing romance is an outlet for the powerful messages that people can overcome great difficulties, and true love can turn life’s heartaches into happily ever after.

Genre: Women's Fiction
Super-mom Tallie O'Shea took on eight adopted children and built a legacy of compassionate justice with her policeman husband. When he is gunned down, she doesn't think it's an accident. Then a former lover shows up and the lies from her past start unraveling. As dangers explode around her, can Tallie set things right before everything she loves is destroyed?
Back at the house, Pierce cornered Tallie. "What's the deal with a dredge?"
Tallie looked at him closely. Distinguished gray at the temples, eyes as sharply blue as they had been so many years ago. Still take-your-breath-away handsome, and here she was with a rifle on her hip, her hair wild with the natural curl turning to frizz, her minimal make-up of mascara and lip gloss cried and worried off, and wearing work-worn clothes to clean the house.
Though she regarded news conferences as media circuses, she never imagined this would end in Halo literally exploding with her children right in the middle of the action. Oh, yes, they were Bernie's kids. Even as she worried, immense pride filled Tallie's heart. Bernie's legacy of courage and compassion lived in his children. In their children.
"When she was a teenager, Marly rode a motorbike up the conveyor belt of an old mining dredge, revved it up as fast as it would go, and jumped over the gap to come down on the other side of the pond. She was so proud because none of her brothers could do it. They were too big and heavy."
As Tallie told the anecdote, Pierce's face grew paler and paler. "Is that as dangerous as it sounds?"
