It’s release day for my latest historical novel (my sixth book-baby!), set in my little corner of Wisconsin.

Today, I thought I’d give you a larger taste of Under the Weeping Willow. This is chapter five, where Enid, along with her son’s help, works on packing up her mother’s belongings in the family home where Enid grew up. It’s a bittersweet task and one laden with a good helping of guilt…

Today, as a part of the coffee pot Book Club, I’m happy to feature Beneath a Veil of Smoke and Ash.

In this fall season, I thought it would be fitting to post a scene that takes place in the autumn from my latest novel, In a Grove of Maples. In this display set up on my buffet, you’ll notice that I have a lit candle next to the book. It’s a specially made candle, by From the Page candles, to match my novel!! How cool is that?

My first inspiration and challenge for writing Under the Weeping Willow sprung from a question: what would it be like, as a daughter, to have a strained relationship with my mother? And what would be the driving force behind it?

All this week, my inspirational historical novel, In a Grove of Maples, is on tour with Just Read Tours. I am offering a special giveaway at the tour stops for those who signup to follow me on a social media platform.

As a part of the Coffeepot Book Club, I am happy to feature historical fiction novel, The Landscape of a Marriage, by Gail Ward Olmsted, today.

I have not read ‘Tho I Be Mute yet but would like to. It sounds interesting, especially with its Native American vein! So today, as a part of the Coffeepot Book Club, I am happy to feature this historical fiction romance novel.

On Thursdays on social media, I’ve been sharing a quote from my newly released historical fiction novel, In a Grove of Maples. Today, I thought I’d give my blog followers a glimpse into my Thursday excerpts.

Today, I’d like to share a little Wisconsin lumbering history with you that I wrote into my latest historical novel, In a Grove of Maples, inspired by my grandparents. In a portion of the story Edward Massart leaves his wife, Beryl, to head up to northern Wisconsin to be a teamster—a man handling a team of horses, pulling a sled of felled trees—at a lumber camp.
