A few notes of interest, fireweed is a wildflower that can grow six to seven feet tall and is abundant all over Alaska. In August when the stalks are in full-bloom, many people gather the flowers and make jellies, syrups, teas, oils, and soaps. Bees also take advantage of the sweet nectar and make fireweed honey. But what astounds me the most about this hardy plant is that it’s the first flower to bloom after a wildfire. Fireweed is beautiful, resilient, nourishing, and above all, wild. Much like my heroine, Briar.
FIREWEED is available for a discounted pre-order price of only $.99!

He's an escaped convict…

She rehabilitates wild animals…
Wildlife veterinarian Briar Levine gets along better with wild animals than people. But when she is taken hostage by West McAllister and forced to spend a night alone with him, her life isn't the only thing in danger, so is her heart.

Raised in Alaska, I spent many long, dark winters as a teenager escaping the forty below temperatures by penning romantic adventures. I attended the University of Alaska Fairbanks where I met a man who swept me off my mukluks and promptly married him. The 90's were spent playing mommy to four children, and on the glorious day my youngest entered kindergarten, I set up camp at the keyboard.
I write mystery/suspense (just can't keep the bad guys out) and contemporary romance (for when I need to lighten things up). Part of my year is spent landlocked in Utah and the other part commercial fishing on Alaska's Bering Sea (read HOOKED). During my landlock months, I create wheel-thrown pottery (read SHIVER), moonlight for Barnes and Noble, and race around with my top down on my convertible (read TOPLESS).
Some of my favorite things are muscle cars, sun worshiping, kayaking, fishing, and Green Tea Frappuccinos!
