Contemporary
Western Love Story about a bull riding rancher and his deceased best
buddy’s Thai immigrant mail order bride. As she discovers the power
of freedom, he discovers he’s lost his heart.
When
Weston Beaudurant’s buddy, rodeo clown Cody Goode is killed in a
rodeo accident — gored by the maniacal bull Baby Face that Weston is
riding, Weston is consumed with guilt. The day after the accident,
while going through Cod’s papers, lawyer Wynona Vasquez discovers
that he had been secretly engaged to a Thai immigrant who is arriving
by train that evening.

 

Elected
by unanimous decision to be the welcoming committee, Weston arrives
at the train station prepared for anything but the lovely forlorn
creature he finds waiting in the rain. Though appearing waif-like,
Song Phan-Rang is anything but fragile. Her mettle quickly rises to
the surface in her determination to remain in Y-oh-ming.

 

Forced
together by their circumstances, Weston and Song are explosive. Used
to solitude, Weston is driven crazy by the obliging Song. But as Song
shows her prowess not only as a housekeeper and cook, but as a rider
and rancher as well, Weston discovers that against his best efforts
(and damned if he’ll ever admit it) — he’s falling in love.

Shifter
Chronicles Book 2


 

 

Now
that she understands the rules, she wants to change them.

Shae’s
body is betraying her and she’s terrified. Though she’s joined the
ranks of her shifter friends, she knows inside she’s not like them.
Her unstable cells won’t let her control the shift. 

As
Topanga grows crowded with suspicious shifters, aligned with the
fascist Order, it becomes clear they have been living in a tiny haven
on the edge of an intolerant, militant shifter society. Even worse,
Shae’s formal presentation to El Oso, the Order’s Berserker Supreme
Leader, is only days away. Without full control of her powers or her
body, she’s not sure she’ll survive the inspection.

As
Shae discovers the dreadful truth about her family heritage, she’s
faced with a severe choice: break with the Order and lose her friends
or submit to a life of subjugation and lies. 

No
matter what she chooses, she’ll be left with only Remnants of the
life she had.

Harvest
Shifter
Chronicles Book 3


In
the shifter world, one law holds true; you will reap what you sow.

Shae
underestimated El Oso, the tyrannical leader of the Order. Now,
banished, flightless and living on the dangerous edge of the shifter
world, she finds it impossible to pursue her one goal, finding and
freeing her father. Without the support of her friends, who are torn
by loyalty to their families, Shae is forced to attempt the
impossible…alone.

A
hidden group of shifters with unexpected powers swoops in to help
Shae. They want nothing more than to discover El Oso’s magic and
destroy the Order completely, even if it means sacrificing Shae’s
father. Too late, Shae discovers she has sown the seeds of
destruction for herself and her family. The defenses of her refuge
are breached, not by El Oso, but by the enemy very enemy he has been
desperate to protect them against. An enemy intent on massacring
every known shifter. Shae must find a way to escape her
self-inflicted fate and empower her friends to unite if they are to
find a way to survive the harvest.

Deluge
Shifter
Chronicles Book 4


First
comes the rain, then follows the flood.

 
Escaping
the Order by engaging the Hunters was only the beginning. Now, with
their safe haven destroyed Shae and Roman are left hiding in a remote
village with no chance of ever finding her father or making a
difference in the shifter world. That is, until a strange Hunter
seeks Shae out and gives her hope she can find her father and
possibly the tool to find El Oso. 

 
They
risk everything to return to Topanga and reunite with their friends,
who are the only ones who might just believe Shae’s adamant theory
that one of the murderous Hunters is actually on their side. As they
test loyalty and strength they uncover the very power that has made
the Hunters mortal enemies to the shifters for over a thousand years.
Their new-found power is a beacon to the Order and the Hunters, who
descend like a flood to drown out the spark of light rising in the
shifter world.

Today Bestselling Author, Farm Girl, Marketing Director…

Since
I was eight I have been writing stories that capture the adventures
in my head and the characters strong enough and flawed enough to have
them. When I look at an empty field I see a formidable citadel. When
I meet a vulnerable old man, I greet an emeritus warrior. When I walk
through city streets I feel dimensions hiding around every turn. It
has been my lifelong passion to explore these worlds that reveal the
pain of loneliness, the joy or self-actualization, and the hope of
magic.

I
grew up in a place called Potter Valley where the Milky Way is held
aloft by a circle of mountains and the central business district
consists of a bait store and a saloon. At 19 I moved alone to London
and spent the next ten years exploring the world, even becoming an
Australian citizen, before I returned to California and found a new
home in Los Angeles. My world revolves around my two wee children and
my love of travel.

My
days are spent in an office overlooking Los Angeles International
Airport where I work as a Director of Marketing for a data center
technology firm, which wouldn’t make you think I had an MFA in film
with an emphasis on writing from Chapman University. However, I also
have degrees in visual communications and global communications,
which allowed me to work for some of the finest technology firms in
the world. In my spare time I have penned six screenplays, four stage
plays, an opera libretto, numerous short stories, and five
manuscripts for novels. My heart lies with my manuscripts, which are
focused on YA and New Adult audiences and range in subject from
Vikings in Iceland to Knights Templar in Italy to Aborigine mysticism
in Australia to shapeshifters in Los Angeles.
