Hearts' Fire

I've finished the first draft of Releasing the Robyn and have already begun my next novel. I am considering titling it Hearts' Fire. It is the story of two young women who've know each other since infancy. Dionisia is Audrey's handmaiden. These two young women fall in love just as the territory they live in falls under the threat of war. A neighboring house wants to form an alliance with Audrey's family through marriage; however, Audrey does not want to marry their son...she's already in love with Dionisia. Hewrey Sherbourne is determined to marry her though and when the war heats up and both Dionisia and Audrey's fathers are called to the front, Audrey is offered a horrible choice by Hewrey--marry him and keep their fathers home, or don't marry him and watch them go off to war. 
I haven't written much of it yet, but it has grabbed me. I already love these two young women and feel sympathy for them and some of the other characters. I just hope the title, Hearts' Fire, can actually compete on Google with that jewelry collection that has a very similar name. If not, I will have to change the name.


  1. I absolutely love your books. I simply cannot wait for the release of Releasing the Robyn, so I can finish the series. Your new book will definitely get a pre order from me when you finish it, if you do a pre order that is. I always love finding authors from my home state, makes me proud of who I am and where I came from. Thank you for sharing your words with the world. I just hope that one day I can do the same with as much artistry as you. Forever a fan.

    1. I just now saw your comment. Thank you so much! Releasing the Robyn is out, and so is A Fierce and Broken Love, which is my memoir. Thank you for the compliment. It means a lot to me.
