The Way Back Home

The pain of betrayal by the ones she trusted, stung.


But she can’t stop the love that haunts her still.


Eight years ago, Courtney left Aspen Valley, heartbroken, sure she’d never return. Now with a daughter, a failed marriage, and the loss of her ex-husband, she returns to her native Alberta and her emotionally distant father.


With trepidation, she does her best to swallow her long-buried feelings about life on the farm and the pain caused by her boyfriend and father. For young Fenna’s sake, she puts on a happy face.


What she doesn’t expect is her father’s interaction with her daughter, the bonds they form. And, even more troubling, the love she still feels for Cole, the man who broke her heart all those years ago.


But the longer she stays, the more hope grows. The more she sees the possibility that she might stay.


And have a future with Cole.


But what seems promising is soon rocked by shocking secrets, stunning revelations, and decisions she thought she’d never have to make.


With faith, love, and a willingness to forgive, will Courtney find the strength and the courage to make the right choice or risk disappointing those she loves the most?

Living life at the intersection of No and Where

I spend much of my days sitting in front of a computer immersed in other worlds with people so real to me I keep thinking some day they might give me a call and come over for coffee. I know it sounds a bit strange but all of us writers have our quirks.

I grew up in the city but have spent more years in the country and now consider myself a full-fledged 'country girl'.


It's a good life, out here. Other than the swish of the dishwasher (a heavenly sound), the occasional hum of the refrigerator and the click of my keyboard keys and the sound of my head banging against the desk when words won't obey life here is pretty good. Just the way I like it.


I've spent a lot of my life either reading or writing. Discovering characters that other authors write about and creating my own. I'm thankful that I can do this job. Thankful that I have readers to read the stories I tell.

I hope I can keep doing it until my fingers give out or I run out of stories. But as long as I keep going for walks, keeping reading other stories, keep daydreaming, I don't think that will happen.
