A Saddle Creek Christmas
Four close and loyal friends since childhood, now grown men, make plans to celebrate Christmas but are threatened with unforeseen perils that strike close to home. Cold snow and freezing temperatures came early in Saddle Creek, Wyoming, a small town outside Jackson Hole in the shadows of the Grand Tetons mountains but wreak havoc on all their lives. Through trials and tribulations of unexpected visitors, family members, and ghosts from the past, as well as, triumphs and joys, this year would be special in so many ways, because they each find the true meaning of Christmas.

Avri and Dillon’s Christmas may be ruined when Dillon has one last dangerous mission, but does he return in time for Christmas? And can Avri, once again, forgive him?

I live on a densely populated peninsula in the mid west coast of Florida with my husband, (my high school sweetheart), and AJ, my long-haired Chihuahua. With the help of my husband, we raised two grown respectable and responsible sons, who have given me two daughters-in law and three grandchildren. I’ve trekked all over the country, including Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, New Mexico, Arizona, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, California, and Montana, which are some of my favorite settings for my books.
I wrote my first story in the fourth grade in the form of a play—something about getting a shot at the doctor—it actually was produced by my teacher for parents and students in a Friday afternoon assembly. When I was older, I spilled my guts in a journal every night and wrote long newsy love letters to Viet Nam to my now husband of 50 years. I majored in English in college and worked in the finance arena as a CFO for thirty-five years.
I am a multi published author of Romantic Suspense; two series, the Deadly series with six books, and the Saddle Creek series of four books but a Christmas trilogy. I have also written and published a compilation of four short Christmas stories: Christmas Awakenings. I am a mentor to others helping them write, complete and polish their books for submission.
After six years as a copy editor for The Wild Rose Press, and two years as an editor I decided to devote more time to my family and my own writing career.
An author of romantic suspense, I love reading almost as much as writing. I have filled my book shelves with my favorites, i.e. Harlan Coben, Eliza March, Johanna Lindsey, Kathleen Woodiwiss, Desiree Holt, Catherine Bybee, Kendra Elliott, Shirley Jump, BJ Daniels, Andrew Gross, and Bobbi Smith, just to mention a few, as well as all the classics.
Personal Interest: I love scrapbooking and genealogy, connecting stories with pictures. I’ve sewn, quilted and have machine embroidered but my interests have changed as I’ve grown older. (I’m not really that old.) Now, I really enjoy writing stories, many times using my real life experiences, to tell the tale.
