Besides designing quilt patterns, I have written several novels and short stories.

Sit back, relax by a roaring fire, by the pool, or just in a comfy chair. Have a cup of tea or cocoa...or a nice glass of wine. There will be no monsters, no war, or nightmares. My mysteries may have light horror and some blood.  Lull yourself in soft romance, mystery, and contemporary relationships in the real world, and maybe partake of a few mild sexual scenes. You will be dredged in the emotions of the characters as they pursue love and overcome adversities, broken relationships, or grief and loss. Snuggle with a box of tissues for tears or laugher, but reserve a period of time for my stories to transport you to the land of contentment.

For my quilting friends, some of my books will direct you to a link to my blog, to download free directions for the quilt on the cover of the book.
