Free Stories from Finley Creek and more…

Ah! I didn’t realize it has been so long since I’ve updated the blog! Things always get really hectic here around this time of year. It’s softball season. Kiddo likes it when I coach her team, so I try to schedule a “slower” time during April-June.

I am still heavily at work, but I’m almost completely off of social media right now. (To be honest, I’m almost completely off social media in general, as it’s a time suck and very negative lately!) Right now, most of my non-writing-book energy goes to softball. So far, it’s been going great. We have fifteen girls on the team. 10-12 year olds. 

Half of them are “dating seriously”. Yes. I have a hard time not laughing when I hear them saying that. But I love working with this age group so much. (I did not like the softball to the face last week during warmup though! OUCH!) It was my first ever black eye…

 It’s kiddo’s last year in this league, and that makes me sad. She says she’s not really interested in the grind that is travel softball, so I don’t know what she’s going to end up doing next year. She also does tae kwan do. She got her brown belt this past weekend. She keeps me busy. She has a TKD tournament coming up. I always enjoy those—and who knows? One may end up in a book some day.

On to the book news!

Zoey’s book is at the editor! Her release date will be…

June 20! 

I’ll be posting excerpts and the cover later this week! 

For now, I am hard at work on the next Finley Creek title. It’s Haldyn and Jarrod’s book. And I’m also working on Dusty/Ben’s book. I don’t have release dates yet, but they will both release in 2023. I am also working on some new things for 2024!

I’ll post links to Zoey’s book HEARING HER CRIES once the cover is finished, sometime this weekend or so!

As Always, 

Thanks for reading,


BTW: Phil Tyler’s book just went free for a limited time! It’s Forever Holding Phil. It’s only going to be free for a little while, so if you haven’t grabbed it, now’s the time to do it!

    I love your books and I have them all saved on my kindle to read again some day. Can’t wait to read Zoe’s story.

    I love reading your books, if it was up to me you would write as fast as I read lol, BUT as a grandmother I know how important family is, if you blink you missed everything.

    I would like to read some more PAVAD if you taking suggestions 🤭.

    Not complaining I read whatever you write.

      Hi Lupita, there are definitely more PAVAD stories in the making. I’m hoping to have Nat/Micah out this year or early next!
      I have already started their book. It just depends on how long it ends up being. 😀
