Stealing Runner’s Heart Available


When she was a child, he was her hero.
When she grew up, he was her dream.

Stealing Runner's HeartCharlotte Rose has loved Runner Jeffries since she was a little girl. He taught her almost everything she needed to know about living, and they were constant companions until he went away to college. But even that didn’t end their friendship, and they remained close through the years.

Runner Jeffries has loved Charlotte Rose for as long as he’s known her . . . just like a little sister. She’s been his friend and confidante, and even time and distance hasn’t interrupted their attachment to each other.

Runner is now a famous baseball star for The Jersey Force and Charlotte is a New York lawyer. She’s decided it’s time to take their relationship to the next level and she’s ready to let him know that she is in love with him and would like a deeper bond.

A whirlwind makeover for a sophisticated new look is part of her plan to make him see that she is no longer the girl next door. When she picks him up at the airport and his drop-dead gorgeous fiancee is in tow, Charlotte’s hopes are shattered.

Will she let go of her lifelong dream, or will she give it one more valiant try before the last curtain falls on her forever plans?

Stealing Runner’s Heart is an easy reading, funny, poignant, and tender love story that will stay with you long after the last page is turned.

Falling in Love with a Hero

Falling in Love with a Hero


Thunder on the Mountain

When I begin writing a book, I find someone whose looks I like and keep their photo front-and-center as I get familiar with the character. This is a photo of Scott Eastwood, son of Clint, and he looks just like I imagine my current hero to look.

In my third book of the Thunder on the Mountain Series, Thunder Storm, there was a young man that I completely fell in love with. I was so enamored with the character of the adolescent Runner Jeffries, son of Miles and Jeni Jeffries, that I wanted him to have his own book.

He’s all grown up now and is a major league baseball player, and if I thought I loved him as a kid, I am totally in love with him now that he’s an adult. And Charlotte Rose, daughter of Jack and Callie (Thunder Snow) (she first showed up in Thunder Struck), is his love interest. She loved him when she was four, and she’s still in love with him, but now it’s a different kind of love – all mature and grown up and stuff ;).

I can’t wait to tell you their story, which I project will be available in August of 2017. Be sure to sign up on the right side of this post and I’ll let you know when their story is ready to be shared.

Fifty Shades and Romance – Oil and Water?

For the past few months I’ve been working on my soon-to-be-released historical romance, WILLOW’S SECRET. It’s full of people who care about each other, who care about the well-being of their partner, who give what they have to make life easier for the person they love, or help that special someone become a better person.

Mimi Foster Willows SecretToday, as we celebrate “the day of love,” the biggest national buzz about “love” is the premier of Fifty Shades of Grey. As an author, I’ve tried hard, really hard, to wrap my brain around the notion that this has become a feeding frenzy. I’ve tried to get into the mindset of readers to understand how abusive sexual and emotional relationships are blockbuster bestsellers.

Don’t get me wrong, I like romance and sex and good stories as much as the next person. And I don’t judge people who are into BDSM and have different lifestyles. But when did bondage and discipline and sadomasochism become mainstream, knock-it-out-of-the-park ROMANCE? I’m no prude, I JUST.DON’T.GET.IT.

There’s so much I want to say, but I think the following article by Kristen Lamb said it beautifully. Would love to hear your thoughts on this complex subject.

I’d hoped I wouldn’t have to go here, but alas, here we are. Today, 50 Shades of Grey the MOVIE will open for…*record screech* Valentine’s Day. Nothing says I love you like predatory emotional manipulation, sociopathy, abuse and non-consensual sex acts.

Find THAT on a Hallmark card.

And yes, I know there have been other kinky books like this, but 50 Shades sold over 100 million copies and the movie (despite ZERO plot) is expected to gross in excess of $60 million which means I just threw up a little in my mouth this “story” has tipped from fringe to mainstream and that scares me more than a little bit.

No, I didn’t read the book. I don’t need to. Nor do I need to watch gang-rape prison porn to know it probably is unhealthy for the future of women (or even men). Guess what? I didn’t have to eat…
