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 – use the Aura to enhance their innate skills. When a new force threatens the Aura, three Weavers are destined to play significant roles in repairing the damage.
Tales of the Aura Weavers follows on from the Aura Weavers saga. Each book is a complete story, building on the lands and people originally presented in Aura Weavers.
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 more stories set in the world of the Aura Weavers, more poetry, more goofiness involving a red dragon, 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.
