Come on in and make yourself at home. I’m glad you’re here.

I don’t know about you, but I find the pace of life hectic. A few minutes of quiet with my Bible in front of me and in prayer keeps me centered, starts my day off right. Then I sit at my computer and travel into America’s past, spinning stories for Steeple Hill that I hope will touch the hearts of my readers. I believe in love stories that grab people from the first page and carry them along the sometimes rocky journey of maintaining faith in trying circumstances.

A huge thanks to my readers for your lovely e-mails. I'm delighted you enjoyed reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them.

Enjoy your visit!
God bless you.

His family destroyed hers. But Wade Cummings's job offer—to care for his recuperating father—is impossible to decline.

If there's anyone in town stubborn enough to deal with Wade's cantankerous father, it's Abigail. It's just a business arrangement—and a temporary one, at that. Her good opinion shouldn't matter a lick to Wade. Yet their different backgrounds belie a surprising kinship. Perhaps unexpected love will be their reward for the summer's inconvenient match.
