New Releases!
I first wrote these children's books when I had three kids at home. Now that they are grown and we have seven grandchildren, I
thought it was time to dig out some of my old ideas, pick up the pen and publish and illustrate some children's books.  "Maybe
Later" is the first book.

A bonus when you purchase the book (either Kindle or print version): I will give you a way to get some black and white pages to
color!  Such fun. That's why I call them the Doodle Art series.

"Maybe Later" is the story of a little girl who visits all the members of her family, only to be told "maybe later." Finally, she has
enough and gets the adults to see the error of their ways. Family is important--make time for each other!

"I Feel Amazing: the ABCs of Emotion" goes through the alphabet, assigning emotions to each letter. Children learn how to put a
name to what they are feeling as they see how emotions arise from everyday situations.
"Christmas Stitches": 3 Talented Seamstresses, 3 Christmas Romances: Return
to Christmases of yesteryear with three seamstresses who use their talents to
succeed in the late 1800s. But can love also be stitched into their lives?

This is the third novella anthology I've written with my friends Stephanie Grace
Whitson and Judith Miller.

If you enjoy using a needle and thread, like historical stories of romance, and love
Christmas (of course you do!) you'll enjoy this book.

BTW, my story, "Pin's Promise" is a prequel to my novels, "The Pattern Artist" and
"The Fashion Designer." The story details how the young Annie Wood first got
her start as a maid at Crompton Hall.  Enjoy!
"The Fashion Designer" is the sequel to "The Pattern Artist" (though you don't have
to read the first to read the second--but you'll want to!)  Annie and her friends start
designing clothes in 1912 New York City. To go from maid to fashion designer is a
testament to Annie's skill. It's an example of the American dream.
         Stand up for what is right, no matter the cost.

In 1868, Justine Braden’s grandmother charged her with the task of standing up
for what was right—no matter the cost. As a child of ten. Justine didn’t
understand what Granny meant. Now, ten years later, Justine leads a frivolous
life as a New York socialite. She doesn’t have to deal with issues of right and
wrong. Or sacrifice.

Not yet.

For unbeknownst to Justine, generations of the women of her family share a
secret that is revealed to them when they are twenty. They can travel through
time. Such a gift presents them with a great purpose, one that is far beyond their

The gift is given, but it can be declined. Or ignored. Or embraced. If a woman is
strong enough, brave enough, and noble enough, the gift will facilitate justice
and change many lives for the better.

Join Justine on her journey from a fickle girl into a woman of great purpose and
