Books 1 through 4 in the Lost in a Boom Town series.

Waltz Back to Texas

After growing up in a dying town, with only two restaurants, no movie theater, and no future, waitress Cassidy Simon wants out. For once, luck is on her side when the oil boom comes to South Texas. She’s determined to use it for her advantage, starting up an RV park for the oilfield workers to add to her escape fund. She’s never been out of Texas, and she’s itching for adventure.

Grady McKenna couldn’t get away from his family’s ranch fast enough when he was a teenager, but a tour in the Air Force in the Middle East is enough to convince him there’s no place like home. He’s seen the world, had his adventure. Now he’s ready to contribute to his family’s legacy in Evansville.

Naturally, the woman who draws his attention is the one intent on slipping through his fingers. How can he convince her life with him will be all the adventure she needs?

That Wild Texas Swing

Liz Salazar has a reputation for being wild, and it’s well-earned. But the women of Evansville, Texas, choose to overlook it since she’s an excellent stylist, with her own shop on the square. But when the handsome young mayor shows interest in Liz, that’s a different story. Suddenly everyone has an opinion, and none of them are positive.

Killian Dawson has always toed the line. He continued his father’s legacy by running for mayor, and is leading the town of Evansville through the changes brought about by the oil boom. His one rebellion is his interest in Liz Salazar. He’s had a crush on her for years, and he’s ready to make his move despite the town’s disapproval.

The reaction of the town is predictable, but the more time he spends with her, the more he knows she’s the one for him. And she is ready to change her ways, but not until after taking him on a wild Texas swing.

Two Step Temptation

Sage McKenna likes to be in charge. In fact, without her as the driving force, the town of Evansville, Texas, wouldn’t be undergoing such a transformation. She’s the one steering the revitalization of downtown, keeping her fingers in as many pies as she can reach—renovating shops on the square, running the Sagebrush Saloon, making plans for a bed and breakfast. She’s busy night and day, unwilling to give up control of any of her ventures. She certainly has no time for love.

Musician Flynn Tscheulin is trying to build a name for himself, playing his music at small bars across Texas, following his dream. The Sagebrush Saloon in Evansville still smells of sawdust when he pulls in for his three-night commitment. The uptight blonde who runs the place is nothing like he expected, and he’d love to delve beneath her cool exterior and find her inner fire.

One night shakes up all the carefully laid plans, and the two have to adjust the future they’d envisioned. Can they make room for each other?

The Cowboy’s Promenade

Single mother Juliana Kendrick moves to Texas when her soldier husband is killed. With no family of her own, she is welcomed and absorbed into the family of his best friend, Grady McKenna.

A year has passed, and she’s as much a part of Evansville, Texas, as any of the McKennas. She’s running his sister Sage’s bed and breakfast, is involved in the school, and is falling in love with rancher Trace McKenna, Grady’s older brother.

Trace’s ex has remarried and wants to take his daughter hundreds of miles away. He doesn’t want his daughter to live with his flighty ex and her shady new husband, and feels his only choice is to marry to win custody. He can’t think of a better candidate than Juliana. But he’s so scarred by the whole divorce, he knows he can never love again.

Can Juliana remind him how to find happiness?

My People the Sioux – Amazon

“Wonderful history written not by a historian, but someone who was there.” -Grandma M

#1 Amazon Bestseller

Born in the 1860s, the son of a Lakota chief, Standing Bear was in the first class at Carlisle Indian School, witnessed the Ghost Dance uprising from the Pine Ridge Reservation, toured Europe with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show, and devoted his later years to the Indian rights movement of the 1920s and 1930s.

My People The Sioux remains a landmark in Native American literature, among the first books about Native Americans written from the Native American point of view.

Luther Standing Bear (December 1868 – February 20, 1939) (Óta Kté or “Plenty Kill” also known as Matȟó Nážiŋ or “Standing Bear”) was an Oglala Lakota chief notable in American history as a Native American author, educator, philosopher, and actor of the twentieth century. Standing Bear fought to preserve Lakota heritage and sovereignty and was at the forefront of a Progressive movement to change government policy toward Native Americans.

Standing Bear was one of a small group of Lakota leaders of his generation, such as Gertrude Bonnin, and Charles Eastman, who were born and raised in the oral traditions of their culture, educated in white culture, and wrote significant historical accounts of their people and history in English. Luther’s experiences in early life, the Carlisle Indian Industrial School, Wild Westing with Buffalo Bill, and life on government reservations present a unique view of a Native American during the Progressive Era in American history.

Standing Bear’s commentaries on Native American culture and wisdom educated the American public, deepened public awareness, and created popular support to change government policies toward Native American peoples. Luther Standing Bear helped create the popular twentieth-century image that Native American culture is holistic and respectful of nature; his classic commentaries appear in college-level reading lists in anthropology, literature, history, and philosophy, and constitute a legacy and treasury of Native American wisdom. My People The Sioux was first published in 1928.

#1 Amazon Bestselling Author

Surrogate mother Shelby Harrison gives birth to a baby boy, Kyle, and loves him instantly. He’s all she has left of her sister, Debbie, who was killed in a car accident six months ago.

Ben Martin is outraged that Shelby wants joint custody of his baby. Yet after his initial anger and feelings of betrayal, Ben suggests a marriage of convenience so that together he and Shelby can provide the love and security he and Debbie wanted their baby to have.

What first seems like a workable solution quickly turns into a nightmare of grief and guilt when Ben and Shelby find themselves fighting a fierce attraction – an attraction that seems the worst possible betrayal of Debbie.

But Debbie has her own opinion and reaches out from the other side to Shelby and Ben, bringing them the love and healing they need to move forward with their lives.

“I like short stories and felt the five in this collection blended well together, but the author also does a great job of keeping each story unique and interesting.” -P.S. Winn

Five contemporary thrillers to have you bolted to the edge of your seat.

The theme linking all of these visceral stories is bad people – their motivations, their victims, how they get their comeuppance, and how – just sometimes – they don’t.

Juked‘ tells the story of Neeta Shah’s healthy cycle trip, and how it takes a very unhealthy turn, resulting in a cat and mouse battle of wits along the Pacific Highway.

In ‘Desert Rat‘ it’s Danny Freemont’s final business trip – his last chance to ‘see a little of the real country’. It quickly descends into a dry-throat nightmare where hope is in short supply.

In ‘A.B.C.‘ a liaison between Shannon and Tyson is not quite what it seems. It all just has to go horribly wrong for one of them. But which one?

Jack Slave‘ is a tale of a bully who simply won’t seem to go away, and the drastic action that just has to be taken.

The final tale, ‘Crowe Ridge‘, tells the story of how a person’s tainted history can come back to haunt them in the cruellest of ways.

And remember, people like this are out there.

Each story is between 40 and 50 pages long, and the collection is fully hyperlinked and bookmarked, with a short author’s afterword following each story.
