ELIZABETH'S WAR: Aftermath is DONE and LIVE at Amazon.  Check it out at:


War is hell, its aftermath just as devastating, as evidenced in western Missouri after the Civil War. Four years of taxes came due, and a new constitution was issued, excluding those who fought on the “wrong” side from voting, teaching, even preaching.

Former bushwhacker Buck Jackson wants only to leave his past behind and marry the girl who saved him from himself. With taxes due, the Drake Constitution, and the long-lasting effects of General Orders Numbers 9 and 11, he has few legal choices to save the two families he loves.

Nora Miers wants only to live out her childhood dream of marrying a good man like her papa. After her near soiling, she’s found that one man she trusts with her whole heart. One who shouldn’t be trusted…until he proves everyone deserves a second chance.

If you need a change of pace from the historicals, check out 50 SOMETHING: Death, Divorce & Menopause. It's a fun romp with four women who have been friends since college who are experiencing the difficulties of death, divorce, and menopause. But they do it together.

  • Crossfire in the Street - Lone Jack 1862

    The Civil War yielded many bloody battles and the Battle at Lone Jack was among the worst. Fought across a sixty-foot strip of dusty road, brothers fought brothers, neighbors fought neighbors, cousins fought cousins, and the blood of horses and men ran together in the street under the blistering August sun.

    The Green family tried to keep from being caught up in the war headed for their doorstep, but their efforts were lost—even before the Yankees came to town.

    In their youthful exuberance and ignorance, sixteen and fifteen year old Hank and Jesse sneak into town to watch the battle—and find more trouble than they bargained for. Pete, the oldest brother, joins the Rebels and fights to save his life—and that of his brothers. Cora, the oldest daughter on the cusp of becoming a woman, loves a boy who runs off to fight with the Federals—and breaks her heart.
