A Little Retrospection
With a new year turning over, I can’t help but look back and think of how fast time has flown. Honestly, it truly amazes me.
And in 2010, I did—a three book contract for my Emerald Isle Trilogy.
Now look where I am. It's only been three years and I currently have two published titles under my belt, with another to release in a few months. I have fans all over the world and the most supportive friends and family a girl could ask for. I will be going to Ireland this summer to finally get to see, with my own eyes, where my heroes, Dægan Ræliksen and Breandán Mac Liam, both stood with Mara on the island of Inis Mór. I will finally get to see the famous forty shades of green and all the beautiful places I wrote about in my series novels. And I will be having a book signing in Scotland as well.
I couldn't be happier.
Now, I know I've said this before, but I'll say it again: I would not be here, doing any of this, without the help of my beautiful sister’s words of encouragement before she left this earth. I owe all of this, and what's to come, to her.
Believe it not, this brings me to my point.
It has already been more than five years since her passing. Hard to believe…
And so, I just wanted to slow things down a bit, and give her a little moment of recognition for the happiness she has helped me to find, the dreams she has reminded me to chase, and the moments she has given me to treasure. Here's to you, my dearest Lindsey.

Book 1 of the Emerald Isle Trilogy
Dægan Ræliksen, a wealthy chieftain from Norway's frozen fjords, secretly discovers Mara at the water's edge. He is charmed by her beauty and sensuous grace. As the days pass, his contentment with simply watching her grows thin. He can no longer deny his unabated desire for the young maiden. His search for a wife has ended.
However, Mara and Dægan come face-to-face in a time when Ireland is in turmoil - when every Irishman is being called up to fight against the Nordic foreigners. In these times of upheaval, how can Dægan make peace with Mara's father and acquire the woman he treasures? Furthermore, can Mara move past her fears and find the noble man within the savage?
A tortured soul…
An innocent heart…
Mara, the spirited Connacht princess, has no idea she is the object of the Irishman’s longing. She is living out her days on Inis Mór, raising a troubled son and trying to endure the cruel loneliness that afflicts her.
A deadly secret…
