Come to Ruthorford, nestled in the mountains of Georgia, the perfect southern town, where the town-folk are friendly, the food is fabulous, and there are dangerous secrets hidden Where the Mistletoe Grows.
I’ve been fortunate to have two novels written, edited, and published within 7 months in 2022. Both are getting 5-star reviews.
Descendant Rising: Ozzy, the lone survivor of the horrific helicopter crash, accompanies his Marine brother home for the last time, far from healed from his own trauma.
Where the Mistletoe Grows: Ray, a once famous artist, having barely survived Covid, comes to Ruthorford to get away from prying eyes and heal.
Both men are about to find out that Ruthorford is far more than the sleepy southern town they envisioned. Join each one as they face the adventure of a lifetime, and the knowledge that’s there’s more to this world than meets the eye.
Visit Ruthorford for the holidays–or any time of the year–for an adventure you won’t forget! Available in digital and print:
My newest novel, WHERE THE MISTLETOE GROWS, is now available! Come to Ruthorford, where the holiday season comes with a twist and hidden suspense. There’s always something afoot in Ruthorford, where science and magic merge. Come visit. Stay at the Abbott Bed & Breakfast. Make forever friends. You’ll never want to leave.
I spent Sunday with Santa and Mrs. Claus. I actually met them a couple of years ago; but, this time, my husband was with me. After I introduced them, he turned and smiled, whispering, “I just shook hands with Santa!”
Book signings are so much fun and I always meet new people, making new friends, as well as seeing some old friends. This one was extra special because of all the children that came to meet and talk with Santa. Some are quite open about what they want and others whisper it so their parents won’t hear. Then, there’s always a little one who’s all excited until they get near and then wail in fright, still watching to make sure Santa won’t forget them.
I had such a great time. And, I have to admit, I gave Santa my list. When he saw how long it is, he looked at me, threw back his head and let out a loud, “Ho! Ho! Ho!”
I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. I always say I’m going to keep it simple. And, truly, it was. Just too much, especially for two people. The turkey, the dressing, the veggies, the cranberry sauce, the potatoes (they can’t be designated as mere veggies), the rolls, and the gravy. Let’s not forget the pumpkin pie with whipped cream. We’ll have food for several days.
There are too many blessings in my life to list but I definitely find myself being thankful for my family and friends, old and new. I have had such great comments on my newest novel and just had some fun discussions with my readers. I enjoy that so much.
I have a book signing Sunday in Moreland, GA. I will post more about that tomorrow. Right now I’m off the enjoy the rest of the food coma! Love and hugs and Happy Thanksgiving! ❤

“He survived Covid. Just barely. Now, at the suggestion of a friend, he’s headed to Ruthorford to heal and adjust to the altered life he faces. Signing into the Abbott Bed & Breakfast under a pseudonym, Ray Grissom, the once-famous artist hopes to come to grips with the changes Covid has forced upon him. When Bonnie, the introverted twin, steps into the elevator at the B & B, she comes face-to-face with the most captivating man she’d ever seen. Their chemistry is instant. All they can do is stare, until he steps off the elevator and is gone. After a quick walk through what would be Ray’s haven for a week, he settles in to enjoy a fine dinner, only to suffer a stroke. The temptress from the elevator places her hand on his shoulder, instantly bringing him calm. With the help of a neurosurgeon and the descendants, Ray begins to recover, regaining far more than what he’d lost to Covid. However, danger has come to Ruthorford, threatening descendant and non-descendant alike, and the only one that can help them is Ray. Grateful for all they’ve given him, he offers assistance, unaware it could cost him, if not his life, his sanity.”
