Excerpts and Short Story Downloads Page Added


I’ve finally put all the links and uploads together for my excerpts page.  I love excerpts because it gives me the opportunity to see if I like the story or even the way the writer puts it together.  I’ve also included my stories from the short story collection I’m working on titled Mystery Road.  I’ll be adding to that from time to time and eventually will be publishing it.  Until then-you get to read the new stories right here on the blog.

I am still working on book six which also still doesn’t have a  title.  There is a hurricane in this book and I’m wracking my brain to figure out a name for it.  Suggestions?

Two Short Stories For Free Download

I love to write Christmas stories and I know it isn’t Christmas.  (It isn’t even September when  Christmas stuff  starts showing up on the shelves!)  These stories are not mysteries as much as stories that encourage and inspire in the tradition of Faith Baldwin and Debbie Macomber.

Two of my stories are now up at Smashwords and can be downloaded for free.   The Smashwords links are listed above each book cover and eventually the stories will be available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple, Sony and Kobo.  You will find different formats for several ereaders on the Smashwords page.
