Palm Springs Mountains

Welcome to beautiful, sunny Palm Springs!


I'll go first. I'm a writer, an amateur chef, an entrepreneur and a retired horse trainer/riding instructor. For  more than thirty years, I worked with young riders and their horses. When we sold our horse ranch and moved back to Palm Springs, I found a lot of time on my hands. Since I love to write and I had miles of memories, I decided to relive my love for horses and teens by writing books about them.

I joined Fan Story an international on-line writing site and expanded my horizons. After finishing my first five teen horse novels, which you can read more about on the page called Young Adult Books, I switched gears and tried my hand at the mystery/thriller genre. When I finished my first novel, Secret Lives, I immediately began a sequel, Lethal Intent. My third in this category is a thriller called FireStorm. You can read more about these books on my Mysteries and Thrillers Page. Click on either of these pages to see the book covers along with a short synopsis of each book.

My husband Jeff and I started our own POD Publishing Company in 2004. I am the managing editor and Jeff oversees all the publishing details. G and J Publishing produces several excellent books each year. If you're looking for a publisher for your book or just a great new author to read G and J Publishing is the place for you. Check our website for more information.

All the books are available to purchase on, Barnes& and at the G and J Publishing website in paperback and eBook versions. Go to my book pages for more information. Along with each synopsis there are links where you can read the first chapter of the book for free or buy the books on-line. Each eBook is available for immediate download through Kindle, Nook Books at the iTunes store and with most online ebook sellers.

I want to thank you for visiting my site.  I hope it helps us get to know each other better. I would love to hear your opinion about the books or this web site so if you have a minute please stop by our
Contact Page and drop me an email.

If you're looking for a new author and find yourself more than a little dismayed by some of the best sellers today, yet still crave danger, excitement and mystery in your reading, you might just have found your new fave author.

There's only one way to find out and that's to head over to the
Buy Books , click onto something that piques your curiosity and enjoy. The first chapter is always free for every book.

I've added a few photos to help you meet some of my four-footed and four-wheeled friends. Just click on my Photo Page .

So come on in. Find a comfy seat and check out a chapter or two. I know you'll love these books.

Happy Reading,
