I write for the Yellow Rose and the Champagne Lines for The Wild Rose Press. Both of these lines are for contemporary romance, but the Yellow Rose line includes the added benefit of having cowboys included!
I’ve always had an odd fascination with
and the ranch life and cowboys. I’ve written stories based on these
locations most of my writing life and my latest series – the Double B takes place on a large cattle ranch
in the Hill Country area of Texas. Texas
I am published in A Cup of Comfort for Women, several short stories have been published by
Dorchester in their magazines True
Romance, True Confessions
and True Stories. I was a small town newspaper reporter for a few
years and finally I have three short stories which are part of anthologies with
The Wild Rose Press and my fourth full length novel will be released in
November also with The Wild Rose Press.
Tips for Writers
Write. No matter what else is happening in your world carve out time to write ever single day and never give up. Listen to those that understand more than you do about writing and publishing, ignore those who tell you that you can’t ever do it, and above all remember the only guarantee that you won’t get published is if you quit.
Trouble in Texas is the third installment in my Double B Series for the Yellow Rose line of The Wild Rose Press. It will be released by Thanksgiving. In the meantime, the first book in this series has been out since mid 2008 and is called To Tame A Cowgirl. Here’s a sampling of this:
She moved steadily towards him and he retreated until his back hit the wall next to the door to his bedroom.
“This isn’t like that. This is nothing like that.” Bucks hook his head.
“Yes it is. I want to do something with you and you’re backing down..”
His head spun. What the hell was she trying to pull? Did Charli put her up to this? She would never have thought to do this on her own. “What did you and Charli talk about tonight?”
Sara’s hands were on his waist. Her fingers slid along the top of his jeans. The open snap made them loose and he bit back a moan when her fingers flittered to his zipper and drew it downward. He pushed her hand away.
She shrugged. “This and that, nothing important.” She shook her hair back and looked up at him. “Look Buck, we’re going to do this, tonight. We can do it the easy way or the hard way.”
Buck laughed. “What are you talking about? How are you going to make me?”
Sara raised one eyebrow and gave a mysterious half smile. She pressed her body into him until the part that was rock hard on him was up against her warmth. She tilted her head way back and looked into his eyes. “I want to do this with you and if you turn me down I’ll know you were all talk that night behind the barn and you were too chicken to go further than a kiss. I’m telling you straight up that I’m not drunk. I know exactly what I’m doing and who I’m doing it with and I won’t be mad or regret it in the morning. Now are you in? Or are you all talk?”
All commenters have a chance to win a free PRINT copy of any of my books including the one Trouble in Texas which will release by Thanksgiving.
