My seventh novel - NEVER MARRY A FARMER

Two women are murdered a decade apart in the same area of the prairies. No witnesses. No motives. A skid mark at the scene of one, the only clue.

Mystery, romance and family are intertwined in this tale of greed, need and heartbreak set in the vast prairie region of southern Saskatchewan. It's the '60s. Corporations are buying farmland. Some farmers sell and find instant wealth. Some farmers don't sell and still prosper. Some farmers don't sell and die in the struggle to survive. Is love enough? A bitter old woman says no. A young man is determined to prove her wrong. Maisie, Glen and an innocent child are caught in the conflict.

First Book

From the moment Tory’s eyes catch the cold steel of Steve’s in the smoky mirror of the bar, she experiences an unease she cannot shake. When he blocks her vehicle on a lonely stretch of farm road later that night, she is terrified but determined not to go down without a struggle. 

As the layers of this man with a history of violence are revealed Tory wonders if she’s bitten off more than she can chew. She came west to comfort an aging aunt, prepared to stay two months. She is not prepared for a life sentence.

A colorful thread of humor, honesty, and raw emotion is woven through this tale fraught with suspicion, murder and hope. 

Second Book

Thinking the pristine woodlands and peaceful river would give her the sanctuary she desperately needs, Hanna Davidson, a 56-year-old divorcée, flees from southern Ontario to a northern Canadian wilderness. She soon learns that the four-legged creatures lurking in the shadows of the forest are not the only predators to fear. There’s a terror outside trying to move inside — or is it just her imagination? 

When the wilderness closes in and her own sanity is in doubt, her nearest neighbor, the handsome Nelson Everett, is always there offering advice, comfort and sanctuary. After she disappears, her family looks suspiciously at him. Is she an accidental victim of the wilderness or has she been taken? 

Third Book

Jo Henderson’s idyllic life on a remote, family-operated resort is shattered one April day by a killer snow storm. A happy marriage spanning more than three decades hasn’t prepared her for the road ahead — one with seemingly impassable roadblocks painted with the names love, uncertainty, ecstasy and guilt

During the first season on her own, one misstep leads to another and tragedy follows. Where to turn? Her brain is telling her one thing, her heart is telling her another, and her gut instinct is saying “listen to me”. 

From the incredible beauty of Northwestern Ontario where the sunsets are beyond description to the cosmopolitan skyscrapers of Toronto and scuba diving off the Florida Keys, uncertainty follows. Try as she might, Jo can’t forget — but the real problem lies in remembering.

Edward Joseph Whittaker is dead. He’s lucky. A quick death in a car accident robbed his widow of the satisfaction of killing him slowly. 

After Helen Whittaker’s husband dumped her for a much younger woman then is killed in an automobile accident, she learns that her finances are as dead as he is. How can a 56-year-old bridge player compete in today’s competitive work force? Several failed interviews and one part-time job later, she starts her own head-hunting agency for seniors. With a little help from her friends, she has a successful career launched. Add an interesting man from her past, a train wreck, a greedy mistress, and a hitherto unknown little bundle of joy and life as Helen knows it is changed forever.

When do dreams become reality … and reality become nightmares?

Forty-two-year-old Kathleen Kennedy is on the highway happily planning a future in the city of Ottawa with a new job and a baby on its way. A tragic accident cruelly puts an end to those dreams. After several life-threatening phone calls, followed by actual attempts on her life, she becomes plagued by frightening, senseless dreams. The surgeon who repaired her broken bones appears to have more than a professional interest in her … and her dreams. When life goes from bad to worse, a world she never would have thought existed — suddenly opens its doors and sucks her in. She must find her way back, but how, with no identity and no one to trust?

Additional Information

This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space. Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too. Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does. Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that. Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
