A book of my poetry, Goddess of the Edges (published under my “real” name, Elizabeth), came out in 2015. Showing life from a woman’s perspective, the poems are straightforward, generally easy to understand, and short.
Seducing Adam and the four volumes of the Calter Creek series are feel-good romances, a little warmer than ‘sweet’ but not erotic.
In Seducing Adam, city meets small town when a hot-shot executive arrives on a small island off the west coast of Canada to pave the way for a logging operation. But the town, and especially the owner of the bed and breakfast where he stays, have other ideas.
In Calter Creek, a small city in Central Ohio, four women in their thirties and forties find their destinies. Amanda manages her family’s import business and has no time for anything else – until she meets the new accountant. Pat finds herself up against an old nemesis, a developer who intends to put a new mall across the street from her house. Mel has found the man of her dreams – or has she? And when Mary meets an unlikely man in a bar, everything she thought she knew is turned upside down.
In my fantasy series, Aura Weavers, you won’t find vampires, werewolves, evil empires, too-powerful sorcerers, or invading hordes of demons. Instead, picture a peaceful agrarian land where life is predicated on the existence of the life-giving planetary Aura. A small group of people known as Weavers – Healers, Bards, and Scribes – work directly with this energy. When a new force threatens the Aura, three Weavers are destined to play significant roles in repairing the damage.
The Day of the Wedding is a prime example of what happens when I unleash my inner goof.
In Once Upon an Attic, romance blooms among long-abandoned attic treasures, with a little help from a friendly ghost.
In the works are a follow-up to the Aura Weavers series, more poetry, a handful of ideas about future Aura Weavers episodes, and – possibly – a completely new fantasy world.
About me: While sometimes writing is all-consuming, I get a kick out of hanging out with my family and friends, handicrafts (currently tatting) and art. Recently I’ve been learning to play early music (Baroque and earlier) on my baritone ukuleles. I go for walks, read a lot, watch my cats sleep …
Yep. Lots to love.
