Reading is one of the greatest joys in life, the pure magic of storytelling on paper. And what better way to share the magic than to write?
And for readers, this is the best of times. You can enjoy your favorite stories on paper or through your digital readers. You can even go back to the fun of being read to, through audiobooks.
All of my books are available on paper and most in digital format, but I've now joined the audiobook age. Tom Flynn, Medium & Healer and She Survives are both available in audio format as well. My newest title, Strive and Protect, book two in the Laura's Dash series, is in digital, and will be in audiobook as well.
Samati Press just released a new book, Bearded Dragons, Basic Beardie Care, in both paperback and digital. Bearded Dragons are the most popular reptile pets in the country, and this little guidebook will help you choose the right one for your family and keep it healthy and happy.
My most recent book: Desperate Choices,
Book Three in the Laura's Dash Series
Launched in October, 2020
Desperate Choices is Book three of the Laura's Dash Series. The first book covered Laura's hardscrabble upbringing and her escape from a vicious, abusive father. In the second book, we followed her life as an adult, wife, and mother coping with the Great Depression. Desperate Choices brings new challenges when Laura's husband has a mental breakdown and is committed to an insane asylum. Laura has to survive with no support from her husband, no help from a community that stigmatizes people with a mental disorder, and a world caught up in fears of a new world war. Somehow she must nurture and protect her children, while holding on to hope for their future.
This book is a continuation of my maternal grandmother's fictionalized story. Many of the places are real, but the people and events portrayed are based on things that took place during the actual time period.
