I've got to tell you, I love this cover. And this is a story I needed to write. I know that might sound nuts but writers are like everyone else, and there are times when certain things just feel right. Summersong is one of those things. It came at the perfect time for me. I needed closure on some personal issues. Too, I needed to say good-bye to someone. And I needed to find myself a little bit, as well. I poured all that into this heroine so it was, truly, a necessary story for me to write.

Summersong has gotten great reviews. It's available here.

And if you haven't seen it yet, this is the blurb:

When Lucy Graham's uncle passes away she inherits his rustic cabin overlooking White Swan Lake. She's just learned that her boyfriend has been cheating on her while she was nursing her ailing uncle so she packs up her laptop and moves into the dusty, neglected hideaway.

Back in the quaint town where she spent many happy days she finds herself confronted by her childhood nemesis, Skip. He's wanted Lucy for years and now he's determined to have her. One afternoon as Lucy's walking on the shore he grabs her. As Lucy struggles, she hears a voice. A full, rich voice. A voice coming from — the water?

Her knight, Maxwell James, arrives in an expensive boat instead of on a white steed. The handsome man saves her from Skip, but can he help her deal with a past that haunts her, a present that overwhelms her, and a future that seems increasingly hazy?

Summersong is a story about dealing with the past, embracing new beginnings, and finding love where you least expect.
