The Holiday Series for only $0.99 – One Frosty Christmas – discount on Amazon worldwide.

Teased by the local kids for being a city girl and an amputee, Hannah Storey feels alone and isolated just like the old mustang she sees on the way to and from school every day. Hannah vows to save the pony the local kids have cruelly nicknamed Frostbite from freezing to death or being sent to slaughter, but events spiral out of control. Will Hannah be able to save the pony? Will the townsfolk of River Bend ever accept her? Maybe Hannah Storey is just what the town needs to remember what love, friendship and Christmas is really about.

One Frosty Christmas is now available in audio book: Audible.UK Audible.FR Audible.DE.

Valentino hits #1 Best Seller list

I was so thrilled today, on Thanksgiving no less, that Valentino hit the Best Seller list on Amazon today. The writing of Valentino was a real journey, 10 years in the making. The research that went into this books was endless – Haida culture, heritage gardening, the geography of Jedidiah Island, stories about Will, the horse that got left behind, and survival stories of the West Coast. I was also able to fulfill a promise I made to my friend, Maddie, who is now a young lady with an incredible spirit and love of life.

Thank you to all who purchased and read, Valentino, and to the folks who left such heartwarming reviews. You have also touched my heart.
