Welcome, dear reader! Christmas has been my focus for many months now, and since the snow and cold came early this year to my part of the Rockies, I have felt at home with the characters in my newest novel, Christmas in Crooked Creek. There is so much hope, love, and kindness for the Crooked Creek family to share with everyone. Thank you so much for stopping in, and I hope you enjoy visiting Crooked Creek!

oin the women of Crooked Creek in a heartwarming tale of survival, hope, love, and maybe even a Christmas miracle. 

The war is over, though for some like Michael Donoghue, the four years of battles brought only death and misery. After returning home, he discovers his mother has passed and his sister is gone. With a bit of money and the help of a friend, Michael heads west in search of the only family he has left. 

Clara Stowe and her daughter left behind painful memories and a life of comfort to make a beginning out west. When existence on the frontier proves to be more challenging than she imagined, Clara seeks the help of people she’s come to love and a man who stirs within her an undeniable longing for a second chance. 

As the holiday season approaches, Michael and Clara must find the courage to let go of the past, survive the present, and embrace a future neither envisioned.
