Multi-Published Author Celebrates 40th Book with Winged Publications
Longing to succeed? Write. Learn. Persist.
Then, like Diogenes of old, who carried a lantern through the streets while looking for an honest man, search for agents, editors, and publishers who share your vision and are willing to partner with you to produce the finest books possible.
I have been blessed with many editors who became personal friends. My 160+ titles (six million copies sold) represent publishing companies and editors I respect and treasure. Latest editor/publisher is Cynthia Hickey of Winged Publications (includes Forget Me Not Romances, Soaring Beyond, and Take Me Away lines).
My experience reflects the company's inspiring motto: Where Your Stories Take Flight.
Five years ago, an editor friend suggested I contact Winged/FMNR. Cynthia and I immediately bonded and I am presently working on my 40th book for her, with more planned. We work together like the blades of a fine pair of scissors. Fiction and nonfiction, historical, contemporary, and westerns. Short story collections and anthologies. Each is unique.
Now available: Legacy of Silver, an exciting Civil War era story and #4 in my Cherished Historical Romances series. I used oft-told family stories that I listened to as a child to add authenticity; tales handed down by those who fought in the heart-breaking battles of brother against brother, friend against friend.
In a nutshell:
High-spirited Silver Trevelyn is indebted to Dr. Zachary Stuart for saving her brother Frank’s life, but considers him a coward. Dedicated to saving lives, Zachary refuses to join the Confederate Army.
War rages, putting Silver and Frank’s fiancée, Lucy, at risk. Seeking refuge, they flee from Silver Birches plantation in the dead of night. Guided only by God and the North Star, they encounter obstacles that threaten to prevent their reaching the only person who can offer protection—the man Silver once despised.
Coming. Cherished Historical Romances #5: Storm Clouds Over Chantel.
Runaway Bride Seeks Sanctuary in the Old West
Chantel Evans learns that her fiance is a fortune-hunter, then discovers he and her stepmother plan to commit her to an insane asylum and gain control of Chantel's inheritance. Terrified, she takes a train to Montana Territory. Nothing she may encounter can be worse than staying in Boston.
"FIrebrand" Morgan considers Chantel's arrival just after her grandfather has been shot highly suspicious. What will become of the Triangle C ranch if left in the hands of a tenderfoot girl who has ignored her grandfather for years?
It takes a kidnapping and a near-hanging to show that only God can banish the storm clouds hovering over Brand and Chantel.
