A little history, a little romance

Finally! The paperback edition of FEARLESS SUMMER is now available. Click to get your own copy from Amazon.

Set among the beaches and wild ponies that have made Chincoteague famous, FEARLESS SUMMER brings Charlotte home to help her sisters run a new shop in town. She hasn’t been home since her break-up with Henry eight years before. The possibility of meeting him almost makes her say no. Sisterly love convinces her she can handle a return to Chincoteague.

Paperbacks are available at The Greyhound, a Berlin, Md. indie bookstore, as well as the usual outlets.

Champagne has also published two others of my PG-rated love stories. 

THE LAST GIFT is now available in paperback as well as an e-book from Champagne Books, as well as at Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble.

Set sail on a Mediterranean cruise with Donna, a workaholic afraid of boats, and Scottie, a ship’s officer who loves the sea more than anything.  

Being a romantic doesn’t make you hopeless.

Champagne also published INN BY THE LAKE as well. It is available as an e-book and paperback.

Bad aim brought together the lawyer and the innkeepers’ son. Everything else drove them apart. Can the inn’s past promise them a future?

Two historical novels were previously published. You can find more information about Mary’s Civil War novel of love and courage, DIVIDED LOYALTIES, and a Jane Austen-inspired Christmas novella, LOVE LETTERS & GINGERBREAD, here.

About me

Book signing at the beloved but now gone Greetings and Readings bookstore.

I blame my becoming a novelist on two things: National Novel Writing Month and my kids. I wouldn’t even have learned about National Novel Writing Month (affectionately known as NaNoWriMo if one of them hadn’t said, Hey Mom, you should totally do this.

So I did.

Now I’ve participated in NaNoWriMo for nearly a decade and have published five novels. Lots more are in the works. Stay tuned. MORE
