I hope your temperatures are rising, your grass is greening, and your flowers blooming!
It’s been a year of ups and downs, with no end in sight!
Some of you may have been looking for one of my older books, only to find them “Currently Unavailable.” There’s a reason for that, and I’d like to let my readers know what’s happening.
The short story is that my publisher, Highland Press, has ceased operations.
I’d known there were problems with the company, so it didn’t come as any surprise. But my writing career is ver y important to me, and I was concerned about what my future might hold if this happened. That’s why I took matters into my own hands and released Journey to Tomorrow, the final book of the Wild Geese Series, under my new imprint, Claddagh Publications.
I’ve since released updated editions of the first two books in the series, Deceptive Hearts and Keeper of the Light, and I plan to continue re-releasing the rest in the near future. Book 3, My Dark Rose, will be released next year, and I’m putting together an anthology of my three previously-published Christmas novellas, to be released this holiday season under the title Mistletoe and Shamrocks. I also hope to release a boxed set of the first three books in the Claddagh Series sometime next year.
That’s the old. Now for the new!
I’m hard at work finishing He Moved Thro’ the Fair. It’s the first book in my new Children of the Swan series, set in “Ireland in the mists of time,” and I’m really excited about it!
Set in an enchanted Irish kingdom, He Moved Thro’ the Fair is the story of Tristan and Breegeen, lovers cruelly torn apart by the forces of greed and evil. Three years after, Tristan returns to claim his love…only to find her in the midst of her handfasting to another!
Here’s a wee snippet to whet your appetite:
The anguished cry rent the air, startling a thousand birds from the circle of towering oaks. Breegeen turned, a startled gasp tearing from her throat. A man in filthy, ragged shirt and breeches glared from her to Harald and back again. The gold-hilted sword in his hand glittered malevolently in the emerging sun.
“This marriage is blasphemy!” Her heart began to pound, her limbs turned to water. The man approached, balancing on the balls of his feet, silent as death, menacing as a wolf of old. A muffled scream rang out as he halted, inches away from Breegeen. His blazing eyes bored into hers, held her captive. He swung to glare at the Priestess. “The union must be undone. This woman is betrothed to another.”
With a feral growl, he raised his sword. Breegeen froze as he whipped it downward in one swift slice.
Stay tuned for more news as the release date approaches!

Hello, and welcome to my website. I’m so glad you stopped by!
I chose to adorn my web page with the Claddagh because it’s the Irish symbol of Friendship, Loyalty, and Love, three themes which resonate throughout my stories. The Claddagh ring, a traditional wedding ring from the west of Ireland, features a heart held in two hands crested with a crown, which signifies the motto, “Let love and friendship reign.”
So come on in, feel free to browse, and enjoy a bit of the craic (fun). And as they say in Ireland, “Cead Mile Failte” ~ A hundred thousand welcomes!
