Morning Coffee: A New Release

It’s always exciting when a new release is announced. “Betty: The Rebel (The Pine Lake Girls Book Two)” is available in paperback from Amazon, and ebook from various online stores, including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Apple. See the full list at:

It’s 1919, and Betty Young has always loved Harry Barnes, but he was engaged to marry Alice Armstrong, her best friend. Bound and determined to have him for herself, Betty tricked him into marrying her instead. Now that she has the husband and big city society life she always wanted, is she living her dream, or a nightmare?

Prohibition is the law and women are fighting for the right to vote. Betty’s eyes are opened by the disparity between the lives of those around her and the immigrants living in the Minneapolis neighborhood known as Bohemian Flats. Exciting doors are opening for her out in the world away from her small hometown of Pine Lake, Wisconsin.

But at what cost?

Can Alice, Betty, and Lizzie’s friendship survive betrayal and a changing world? Watch for the third and final book, “Lizzie: The Secret”, in 2023.

Morning Coffee: Coming Soon

It’s a rush every time I finish a book. This will be my third, and the feeling is no less exciting than when I finished my first or my second. And I suspect it will be just as exciting when I finish my fourth, the third installment in my Pine Lake Girls trilogy. Tentatively titled “Lizzie: The Reckoning”, watch for it in 2023.

“Betty: The Rebel” is the second in the trilogy and will be released later this month. It’s currently going through a final proof read by a fresh pair of eyes. Set in 1919 Minneapolis/St Paul, Betty finds herself in the middle of suffragettes and prohibition.

If you haven’t yet read the first book, “Alice: The Betrayal”, it’s available on Amazon in both paperback and ebook. You don’t have to read the first to enjoy the second, but it is double the fun.

Also available on Amazon, “Mary Bishop” takes the reader from pre-Civil War Virginia to1880 Wisconsin. It’s about a war that divided a nation, a woman fighting for her life, and the two men who promised to love her forever.
