My Catholic historical romance novels and novella are set in Persimmon Hollow, a 19th century fictional Florida town filled with love, faith, family, and community. Each novel can be read as a stand-alone, independent of the others in the series. Learn more in the sections below, and find the books on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and iBooks and, I hope, in your local indie bookstore.
My non-romance short stories depict slices of life, and are filled with characters who retain their dignity. Read my short stories for free on Fictionaut and Goodreads. I also blog about daily life in pioneer Florida.
