Back from a Wonderful Holiday!

Just back from a week in the upper Napa Valley – a week of hot tubs, massages, aroma therapy, reflexololgy, amazing food and delicious wines!

The Shaman…What Alex Looks Like to Me…

Alex is a recent graduate from the local University who's working at Libby's bookstore. Studious and quiet, he thinks Crystal is the cutest girl he's ever seen, and he gets tongue-tied every time he's around her.


While I was writing the book, this is what I thought Alex might look like…

What Crystal Looks Like to Me

Crystal is a bit strong headed – she wants what she wants when she wants it. But that gets her into trouble. She doesn't always think things through….

This is how I imagined her in my mind as I was writing the story….


The Shaman of Redwood Cove

Story Synopsis:

Crystal thinks she's run away from her past. A past full of ruthless manipulation used to get what she wanted – regardless of the hurt she caused to those who loved her. Redwood Cove, with its beauty and serenity seems a perfect place to start over, and Crystal decides to settle in.

Then her past comes crashing down on her, causing her to seek the same solution she used before. But soon even that begins to spiral out of control, and she is visited by an ancient Shaman.

Will she follow the Shaman’s advice or end up in trouble again?


The Shaman – Getting Closer…

Just got this note about The Shaman from one of my beta readers:

"Another charming tale with your unique blend of magic and romance, which almost brought a tear to my cold, logical eyes more than once."

Woot!  This is why I write (and because I have to LOL).
