I’M DANCING ON SUNSHINE  because you have dropped by my little part of Parris’s Paradise.  We have some things in common ~ that we believe good overcomes evil; that love triumphs over everything, even death; that we love a tension-packed story; and that we feel the best books sweeten our lives.

I hope to sweeten your life with my ‘Freebies and Frostings‘ (I love eating cake but love licking the spoonsful of icing even better! Honestly, I love licking the entire bowl).  Check out each month’s deal on my Freebies and Frostings’ page.

I write for the reckless of heart.  Not surprising, I identify with my characters, both the protagonists AND antagonists.  I suffer with their angsts and bewilderments and rejoice in their joys and triumphs.  And I believe that if we heroically hold fast to our own vision for ourselves in the face of our journey’s confrontations, then Life WILL manifest our dreams and goals and visions, as it does for my characters in my novels.

My latest, Monarchs and Painted Ladies, numbers among my departures from my predominantly Historical Romance genre. Like Snow and Ice and No Telling, it is a Thriller.


“When Madness is Divine ~

When a Viet Nam Vet run amuck joins forces with a roué of a priest and a nutsy nurse to find out why they are being singled out for death ~

When Good and God are deceptive ~ and when myth dares to defy dogma.”


By the way, I just returned from a book launching for Jack Woodville London’s CHILDREN OF A GOOD WAR.  He is a wonderful author, and his novel will change how you look at life and people.  Things are not ever what they seem.
