Medieval Scotland. Sir Lennox Brodie, a powerful knight, leaves his homeland to fight in the Crusades. It’s a vow he’s bound to fulfill and an escape from the devastation over the death of his wife and two daughters. He returns famous, scarred, and wealthy, with his soul still in tatters.
Lennox encounters Maggie Weaver when she mistakenly enters the sun-dappled glade that belongs to him. The secluded, tranquil spot becomes the backdrop for healing, redemption, and the capacity to love again. It’s also where the unthinkable happens, giving pain and heartache free reign to test their relationship - something not even the strongest knight can protect.
Social media outlets give me the opportunity to engage and connect with people down the street, across the country, and around the globe.
Sir Lennox Brodie’s life as a powerful knight is over. Having fulfilled his oath to the king, he is comfortably settled at the manor house built on his family’s ancestral lands. He and Maggie are raising five-year-old Kendric, and his dream of raising Friesian horses is coming true. Lennox’s desire for a life of peace and tranquility has finally come to pass. So he thinks …
The demons of his past have come calling, threatening his idyllic life as he is cast onto the path of a dark and perilous journey. Where will it take him? If he survives the pain and suffering he is forced to endure, will he recognize the man who emerges at its end?
Creating content on my blogs helps expose my writing to new audiences. It provides me with an outlet to share things that I'm passionate about with my fans!
I had a fortunate upbringing in that I learned to read, print, and write (yes, cursive!) before I entered kindergarten. Bedtime stories were a nighttime ritual and reading continues to be a mainstay in all aspects of my life. I am happy and proud to share the gifts that were bestowed upon me as I write for young and adult readers, write about writing, and blog about topics that strike a personal and passionate chord with me.
I graduated from St. Cloud State University with a Master’s degree in Special Studies (Art History, Creative Writing, and Photography), a Bachelor’s degree in Art, and a Bachelor’s degree in Art History.
