In 2011, my husband and I walked away from the life we’d known in California. Our house, savings, and jobs were gone, wiped out by the recession and less-than-stellar decisions. We headed to Montana, a place where I’d known peace in my twenties. With us came several work-in-progress manuscripts and a dream.
With the support and help of a small group of women writers (including Danica Winters and Angela Breidenbach) as well as the luck of timing, my debut book was accepted at the now-defunct Crimson Romance. What a roller coaster ride it has been since!
California Sunset drew from some of my own later-in-life experiences. I was going through a lot of trauma when that book’s genesis occurred. Annie, the heroine in the novel, is raising her teenage son by herself, her alcoholic ex doing the best he can to be around. In the upheaval of economic stress, she is faced with a choice: uproot her child from California and move to New Jersey … or lose her job. Adding to this mix is a new and attractive man in town–a bookstore-owning cowboy from Montana. To find out what happens, you will need to read the book. It is also available at most non-Amazon online bookstores. The print copy can be ordered by your local brick and mortar bookstore or wherever you buy your books.
