Until 2017 I published mostly M/F romance, but a health crisis, (and two years away from writing), caused reassessment of my goals. Consequently I began my first F/F novel, The Falcon’s Heart. As a bisexual woman, with LGBTQA family and friends, I want to represent greater diversity in my work. Going forward, I intend my books to celebrate a beautiful variety of relationships and personal journeys.

The Falcon's Heart

Saba is the daughter of an ambitious provincial king. She knows little beyond the constraints of palace life, until one night, a notorious woman outlaw steals her away. 

Through her journey, Saba discovers joy and freedom beyond anything she has known. But her fate remains uncertain. The king is in pursuit, aided by a sorcerer who seeks to claim Saba as his own. 

Can a princess and an outlaw find love together, or will malign magic destroy all they have gained? 

There has been so much happening in my personal life, completing The Falcon's Heart is taking longer than expected. Between fixing up a house to sell, moving to a new town, and now purchasing another home, (which also needs work), I've had to let go of any specific finish date for this novel. I will continue writing, as I am able, and look forward to sending the manuscript to publishers sometime in 2020.
