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 April 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.

Get ready for a THUNDER STORM!

Get ready for a THUNDER STORM!


Okay, we’re really close. Thought you might like to see the back-cover copy for the soon-to-be-released third book in the Thunder on the Mountain series. Book 1, THUNDER SNOW, is the story about Callie and Jack. Book 2, THUNDER STRUCK, is the story of Jordan and Brandan. Book 3 is the story of Jordan’s best friend, Jeni, and Brandan’s business partner, Miles. I am excited to share their story with you!

Madeline Manor

Suddenly finding herself as the sole caregiver for her aging grandmother, advertising executive, Jeni Jenkins, accepts her best friend’s offer to set Nana up in a beautiful Colorado Victorian cottage. Leaving Nana surrounded by friends and a competent nursing staff, Jeni expects to take care of her thriving New York business and be able to visit frequently. 

Miles Jeffries, a gorgeous local contractor who sets off sparks every time he and Jeni are near each other, makes it clear that short-term, long-distance relationships will never be part of his life. As much as he is captivated by her, he absolutely refuses to pursue any suggested entanglements with this zany woman who will only be there occasionally. 

With a genuine fondness for Nana, Miles keeps Jeni up-to-date on the sometimes funny, sometimes poignant situations happening in the Colorado high country. Jeni has worked all of her life for the success she now enjoys, but can she truly be happy when everyone she loves lives so far away?
