Painted Memories 

Getting over Grady was the hardest thing Olivia Jernigan ever had to do. Now, three years after his death and on the verge of marrying another, her plans come to a screeching halt when she receives a shocking wedding gift from her great aunt that may change everything—a picture painted by her deceased fiancé. Bent on discovering the truth, Olivia flees home to learn what really happened to the man she thought loved her, a man who was supposed to have died in the Korean War.

Grady Barnes woke up in a hospital room three years ago with no knowledge of his identity. The only memory to resurface was the image of a woman. A woman he can’t stop painting. Will these paintings be the key to helping him find his way home, and how can the woman in the painting affect the direction of his life?

Olivia and Grady have a history, but do they still have a future?
Or is their romance just a painted memory?

The Art of Love is a series compiled of stand-alone novels where the characters tell their own stories and love means so much more than passion.
Painted Memories is projected to release March 8, 2021.  

The Christmas in Garland Collection: Instead of one Christmas novella, I decided to create an entire collection of them.

Project Scrooge is now available, and book 2 is on the way. I’m hard at work on The Engagement Cover.
I’m tapping into my Hispanic roots with this one! There will be loads of Christmas tamales and lively family to get to know and love. 

Engagement 1600x2400

If pretending to be engaged wasn’t hard enough, needing a replacement
for her fake fiance just made things more complicated.


I’m in the early stages of a beloved story that unfortunately keeps getting pushed back. The Birth of Grace is a stand-alone novel inspired by my grandmother. You can catch the details of the story here

Grace Final 1600x2400

What started off as a standalone novel is the first of 3 hometown history novels. I’m chomping at the bit to tell this story but I haven’t been able to finish this one as quickly as I had hoped. But stay tuned to hear when this gripping tale is finally realized. This one is a bit different from my other works, and you can hear more about it here.
