I'm Thrilled to Announce.............

Harbourlight Books ~ The Beacon in Christian Fiction ~
has contracted my novel, Devotion!!

As most of you know, I'm blessed by an extraordinary relationship with White Rose Publishing. Being given the opportunity to share my Christian fiction debut with its 'sister' company, Harbourlight, is a dream come true. I couldn't wait to share the news, plus give you a little information about the story to come - so, here's an unedited blurb:


Temptation enters a marriage not just in lightning strikes,
but in the unwitting surrender, piece by piece, of a precious relationship.




Kellen Rossiter operates at the top of his game. Savvy, confident, charismatic, he’s a music agent representing A-list clients from coast to coast. But years ago, his heart led him from Los Angeles to Nashville, and to his wife, Juliet. There, he set up shop and never looked back, focusing on Christian recording artists, his bride and a faith life that never wavered.

Juliet Rossiter is a beautiful and enthusiastic source of support to her husband. She’s eager to raise a family with Kellen and shares her time and talents with their faith community at Trinity Christian Church and by tending to the life and heart of the man she’s loved completely from the moment they met.

But what happens when their picture-perfect marriage begins to unravel in the face of an unexpected and powerful temptation?

Human frailty, and the pull of the forbidden, creeps into the cracks of their once rock-solid relationship. Kellen and Juliet learn that even in the most Christ-centered relationships, the patina of day-to-day living can dim the shimmer of passion; even the deepest love can fall victim to the call of a relationship full of freshness and exciting allure.

How does the lifelong decision to love stand the test of finding a way back from the ordinary? How does the strongest relationship find a way back to God when its foundation has been rocked—when temptation has dealt its blow to a marriage built on the strongest, most committed sense of love—and devotion?
