Heartwarming Small-Town Romances and Thrilling Mysteries

First, let me answer the question I’m asked the most: how do you say your last name? It’s pronounced CARE. I love that name because I care about you having good books to read and enjoy. I care about making my books fun to read and are well done. I care about having my books show that good always wins, and love is the greatest of all.

I’m a self-published author from the Black Hills of South Dakota where I live with my hubby of nearly 50 years. I’ve loved to write my whole life, but it wasn’t until I retired from my technical writing job that I could focus my energy into writing fiction and nonfiction books.

Each week I post a new blog on this website about the things I see, do, and remember. You never know what messes I get myself into.

Please read my books. Leave reviews so I know what you thought of them. Tell your friends about them.

Let’s have a blessed day!
