First Post!

This is my first blog post, and I am really excited. This coming year will mark my leap into the world of self-publishing. As someone who is brand new to writing, this is a scary step for me. Two years ago, I began writing a story that, for whatever reason, was stuck in my head for almost a year. I have been an avid romance reader for a long time, and the idea took hold to - why not? - write my own!
It has been a long and difficult journey from my first sentence to a completed, and hopefully polished, manuscript. And I am anxious to finally get it sent out into the world.

The story, titled Yellowstone Heart Song, is set in the Rocky Mountain region which today encompasses Yellowstone National Park. It takes place decades before the area was even known to white men, a time just after Lewis and Clark, before the mountain man era was in full swing.

The story has turned into, what I'm calling the Yellowstone Romance Series. I have finished book 2, titled Yellowstone Redemption, which will release soon after Book 1. The third, titled Yellowstone Awakening, is in its final stages of completion, and I have begun my newest title, Yellowstone Dawn.

Although I describe the setting in my novels as accurately as I can, I have taken great liberties with the actual history of the area.

Stay tuned for an excerpt from the book.
