2024 Update — I’m Still Here. Kinda

Happy Spring!

In my heart, I feel like I have more romance books to put out in the world and I have a couple in progress. But I don’t seem to be finishing anything.

I don’t know what to tell you.

I am thrilled that people are still finding the books. At this point, they could probably use a little refresh but that’s a project way down the list.

If I get anything close to being ready, I will announce it here.

Heartbeat Braves is an Audiobook!

I was given the opportunity to turn Heartbeat Braves into an audiobook using digital narration.

I understand all the concerns about using digital narrators. I would LOVE to record my books with Indigenous voices but I don’t have the skills or resources to make that happen.

I wrung my hands and thought about it for quite some time and decided to go for it.

It’s available via the Apple Books app:

Heartbeat Braves.

I just finished listening to it. Madison does a good job but here are a few funny mispronunciations like when Linda tells them to polish their resumes and she says Polish, like of the country Poland. I also hear some typos and awkward sentences.

But I think it came out great. I hope people who prefer to consume their romance via audiobooks will give it a try.

I would love to hear your feedback.

2023 — I’m Still Here

Snow Day

Hello Friends. I am still here.

It has been a tough few months personally and also this website was broken behind the scenes and took awhile to unravel.

I had this picture set aside months ago when I thought I could post again but then things were delayed. It’s spring now.

I’m happy people are still finding the books and I appreciate all your notes and comments.

I am working on new books and hope to have news soon.

Thanks for sticking with me.

Maybe News Soon

Check out this skunky noodling around my backyard and creating a home under the shed. There’s a motion light that’s supposed to scare him off but it has completely failed to do its job. What a fluffy tail.

I wouldn’t get too excited but I have a bunch of new stuff I’m working on. One is a contemporary romance — not Crooked Rock — but in the same spirit. I also have a couple of other stories in various states that have some romantic elements or fun Indigenous characters.

Updates as they become available.

Raven Reads on Instagram

I can’t believe I never posted this. I was fortunate enough to be invited by Erin and Dani of Raven Reads to do a Romance Author Q&A. Author Maggie Blackbird participated, too.

Here’s the replay. It took me awhile to get on because I am bad at social media and couldn’t figure out which button to click. hehe. Also that screencap really captures my essence. ha.

Book Four Crooked Rock Braves is out!

Book 4 is out there and available everywhere. This story wraps up all the open storylines. All your questions answered.

If you missed it, there’s a free prequel short story about Linda and Arnie in college. Not mandatory but there’s a little setup that gets paid off in Book 4:
Not Your Mascot: pdf | mobi | epub


Linda and Arnie are the should have been that never happened.

Linda Bird has poured her heart into building a community for Indians in the city, but the setbacks keep coming and her supporters are losing faith. In college, Arnie Jackson was a sexy-but-aggravating rival. Now she needs his help if Crooked Rock is going to succeed. Turns out he’s still sexy, he’s still aggravating, and she’s never gotten over him.

Arnie has dealt with every challenge Indian Country has thrown at him, but nothing could have prepared him for the accusations that bring his leadership into question. Linda has been his most loyal friend—equal parts stubborn and dazzling—and she’s the only one he trusts to help him through this crisis.

They have always been right for each other, but it’s never been the right time—until now.

The process for doing paperbacks is easier but I still want to see a copy before I hit the publish button on that. It should be available Thursday or Friday.
