It's a busy week in my neck of the woods. I have a new release out: Willow, Wish For Me. It's a short story blend of the Old West and Merlin. What's it about?
- A high-society debutante seeking solace as an herb farmer in the Old West.
- A high-stakes gambler hired to retrieve said debutante for her unscrupulous suitor.
- A money-hungry, status seeking ex-fiancé who doesn't get the "ex" part.
- And Merlin, King Arthur's powerful sorcerer, re-emerges as a mule to fulfill his own destiny.
Idaho Territory: 1885
Willow escaped Boston and is now a content herb farmer, but she's lonely. When making a frivolous wish upon a star, she dreams a man who became her heart's desire. One day, as she was weeding, that very man rides up on a mule! But he's not the man of her dreams--instead, he's been hired to hand her over to the one man she despises...her ex-fiancé. How could Willow's wish go so awry?
If you like out-of-the box stories, this just might be the ticket for you!
