USA 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, storytelling, and my love of travel

Middle-aged and starting over is the last thing I ever wanted on my bucket list. But since my husband announced he was gay and my daughter left for college, I don't really have a choice.If I'm going to get my "Happily Ever After" I have to start making new choices, starting with picking guys who like women rather than women's makeup would be a good start. Next! I'm way past the point of caring what other people think. I'm 49, about to turn 50 and I'm pretty sure I'm entering the prime years of my life. It's time to make my mark and do things the way I want to do them.
I am sooooooo leaving the city that has sucked me dry with the commute and the executive position. There's no way I'm doing that anymore. I have enough money from the divorce to buy a house, almost any house, outside of California. I take one suitcase and my jeep, and I leave town, not stopping until I get to Cougar Creek, which is so small I think it's barely a town, but I'm all about it.
This is where I will get my fresh start.
I inherited my Aunt's home here years ago and never even visited, but the renters just moved out and I might as well make it my home. For now.
But Cougar Creek has a lot more in store for me than I ever imagined. There is a load of eligible young men from the local ranches, a couple of new BFFs in similar situations, and a strange invitation to a local secret society who think I'm the new high priestess of their local coven. I didn't stop laughing until I realized they wouldn't take "no" for an answer. They have a massive problem in the cemetery and they expect me to solve it.
But I didn't trade in one life of rules for another one, so if they want me to be high priestess, they're going to have to accept that I make the rules.
