What draws you to a book? Romance? A handsome hero? A strong heroine?  A tale that enables you to escape or make you sigh?

I believe in the power of story. It can comfort, challenge, and inspire. It can make us laugh, and it can bring us to tears. It can teach, take us on an adventure, and help us dream.
Although the stories I put to paper are fictional, they’re about real people with real struggles, with a little bit of humor and romance.

I’d like to introduce you to my current project. This contemporary romance, set in Seattle, is on track to release in November 2019. 

An attractive special events planner is 
determined to keep her distance.
A disfigured musician struggles to guard his heart.
By all appearances, both are destined to fail.

My three-book series is called The Daughters of Riverton. These historical romances are set in the early 1900s, and they take place in a fictional town based on my own hometown and people who lived there.

Sarah’s SmileHope’s Design, and Rebecca’s Song are all available. The complete Daughters of Riverton series can also be found in a boxed set for Kindle on Amazon. Preview and purchase any of the romances below! You can also learn more about these stories and Riverton by exploring this site. I hope you’ll grow to love Sarah, Hope, and Rebecca as much as I do …

Whos the author behind the stories? Youll discover some of those pieces by checking out About Me and Places I’m Featured. There youll find a replay of my FACEBOOK LIVE VIDEO interview with Patricia A. Durgin and Marketers On A Mission. We chatted about my life, my writing, editing for other authors, and how I approach marketing. 

Im passionate about encouraging people to pursue their dreams and find purpose in any season of life, so my stories tend to reflect those themes. If youre looking for inspiration in those areas, please visit my blog The Garden of Dreams

Be sure to sign up for my newsletter, and along with keeping you updated on the novels, I’ll share photos, recipes, devotionals, and favorite movies and books. As a new subscriber, youll also receive my short story, Maggies Miracle, for FREE (PDF format).
