My Catholic historical romance novels 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. Learn more below, and find the books on Amazon, Barnes and Noble Kobo, Apple Books, Google Play and elsewhere.
My non-romance short stories depict slices of life. They're filled with characters who retain their dignity. Read my short stories for free on the Short Stories page. I also blog about daily life in pioneer Florida.
My books are made available to libraries through Draft2Digital. Ask your local library to stock them! Find out how on the Stock the Shelves page.
