BOOK TWO from Heart and Ashes Series is now on Amazon.
The Irishman whose life’s work is going up in flames in Boston. A carpenter by trade, his true talent lies in carving grand nautical figureheads, the lifelike depictions of mermaids, sea legends, and such. The type found in wild defiance at the prows of the mighty, masted sailing ships of yore. Clippers and galleons. Pirate ships.
Only now, that life he’s worked for is all but—gone.
One of America's first female Army Rangers, and the girl who got away. She's only returned to Boston to sell off her family's multi-million dollar business. She doesn’t expect to stay any longer than it takes to sign on the dotted line. Colby has a life to live, a proud life, and she intends to live it—her way. Only now she's wondering why Ash Callahan's nude figurehead of the Irish Pirate Queen, Grace O'Malley, looks just like her?

Smoke, Hearts and Ashes,
I always wanted to be a writer. I've dabbled in poetry, short stories, and more daydreaming than most. I remember long Sunday afternoon drives with my parents where hey'd tell us eight kids to:
'Look out the window and see something!'
I've been looking out the window ever since....
In the great pines of the Pacific Northwest, I saw a woman with nowhere to run find refuge in the arms
of a tender warrior who'd forgotten the man he once was...
In the hills of Wyoming, I saw a man broken by the high cost of war, rediscover himself in the eyes of a pretty girl...
And in the Dairy State, (yes Wisconsin), I saw two people overcome horrific obstacles on their way to
Life is short.
Pick up a good book.
