Enjoyed Mistletoe at Moonglow? A new Christmas novella is available!
Silver Bells at Moonglow 


Christmas at the Timberton Hotel arrives each year with a unique set of guests, some returning, some new. When this holiday brings a celebrity seeking reprieve, sisters who are distant yet closer to each other than they think, a widow approaching a new horizon, and an eclectic smattering of local townsfolk and visiting relatives, the season is certain to be eventful. Add in a hint of romance and there’s more than snow in the air around the small Montana town.

Elegant decor and exquisite cuisine from resident artist and chef, Mist, form a backdrop to much needed camaraderie, bringing strangers and friends together. When the last note of Christmas carols has faded away, the soft whisper of silver bells from the front door’s wreath will usher guests and townsfolk alike back into the world with hope for the coming year.


*Available at AmazonApple, and Barnes & Noble

Mistletoe at Moonglow – Now Available!

A Christmas novella with cookie recipes included!

The Timberton Hotel has always provided a perfect Christmas retreat for regular guests, as well as newcomers. But the small town of Timberton, Montana, hasn’t been the same since resident chef and artist, Mist, arrived, bringing a unique new age flavor to the old western town. When guests check in for the holidays, they bring along worries, fears and broken hearts, unaware that Mist has a way of working magic in people’s lives. Old-fashioned time spent together, exquisite food, conversation and a snowball or two offer guests a chance to trade sadness for hope. One thing is certain: no matter how cold winter’s grip is on each guest, no one leaves Timberton without a warmer heart. Available at Amazonhttp://amzn.to/1R4s0v5



Longmire at the Wort Hotel

Any Longmire fans here? (I know there are!) Just a heads up: If you can mosey on up to Jackson Hole on July 6th, you can rub shoulders with Craig Johnson, author of the popular Longmire series, AND with Robert Taylor, who plays Walt Longmire in the hit TV series. Yep, not kidding you. #BoyHowdy Don’t say I didn’t tell you!


New Paige MacKenzie Book Release – June 12th!

New Paige MacKenzie Book Release – June 12th!

Get ready for the next Paige MacKenzie mystery! Three Silver Doves will be released on June 12th! Pre-orders begin next week.

What’s Paige up to this time? Well, here you go:

When New York reporter Paige MacKenzie heads to Tres Palomas, New Mexico, the resort of Agua Encantada seems a perfect destination to combine work with pleasure. A quick article on the healing mineral springs and a few leisurely soaking sessions in the resort’s soothing waters promises well-deserved rest and relaxation.

Paige is immediately intrigued with a local artist’s one-of-a-kind jewelry designs, as well as weekly gatherings to hear legends from an elderly storyteller. But when identical jewelry shows up on another guest and the storyteller goes missing, Paige’s R&R is soon redefined as restlessness and risk. Curious and persistent by nature, Paige is convinced there’s a connection. Enlisting the help of a flirtatious resort worker seems like a good idea until it begins to test her loyalty to her favorite cowboy, Jake Norris. Will an unexpected overnight trip to Tierra Roja Casino lead her to the answers she seeks, or are darker secrets lurking along the way?

On Patience

I danced for thirty-five years, long ago, in a past life, or what seems like one.  My pointe shoes hang in a closet now, tattered, pink satin ribbons dangling downward like distant memories.

These days I just dance in my head, and I dance on paper with words.  Getting started is always the hardest part for me, the biggest challenge.  I want to just wake up, turn on the laptop and watch my fingers ravage the keyboard.  And I get frustrated when that doesn’t happen.  But today, when Peter Jennison’s War came up on my Pandora stream, the building energy of the drums and bass made me realize that was no more realistic than pulling off a clean triple pirouette without warming up.  This wasn’t a new revelation, but one that I forget over and over.

The music today made me want to start moving.  To start moving.  It was about beginning the process, not jumping into the middle of it.  I see now that I’ve been so focused on getting to the center of the slick, maple floor that I’ve forgotten how to place one hand on the barre and just begin.  Without looking ahead thirty minutes, or even fifteen or five, worrying about getting there: in the zone. 

Now my fingers have done a few demi-pliés, by writing these paragraphs.  It’s only a start, but that’s OK.  I’m ready to write today.
