Get Lost in Romance and Mystery

"Ms. McClintock succeeds in masterfully weaving both genres meticulously together until mystery lovers are sold on romance and romance lovers love the mystery!" —InD'tale Magazine

 I currently write western/American romance and romance mystery set during the commonly known Victorian era in the UK, though in the US, the periods are the Civil War, Reconstruction era, and Gilded Age. All my books are on the subtle end of the romance spectrum. I have two, perhaps three additional genres/subgenres to add over the coming years and select a year (or range) solely as a foundation for the characters and the lives I imagine for them.

"Until we meet in the pages of my books, may your days be filled with fulfilled dreams, an abundance of kindness, and as many beautiful moments as you can capture."


It is my favorite escape, full

of discovery and wonder. Writing allows me to live every life I have ever wanted.


C.S. Lewis said it best: "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me."

One cannot know how they got to where they are without knowing what came before. 

Social Media

It is a love-hate relationship . . . but mostly hate. Pinterest is kind of fun. Newsletter and blog are best news/info sources.


"The Montana Gallagher Collection is adventurous and romantic with scenes that transport you into the wild west."
