Preview of OUTLAW HEARTS, coming in June!

The 2015 reissue of OUTLAW HEARTSHe closed his eyes and stretched out beside her, kissing her hair. "I'm no good, Randy. There's no future with a man like me."

She ran a hand inside his shirt and leaned closer to kiss his chest. "We don't know that, yet. And you are good, Jake."

He wrapped his fingers into her hair and rolled on top of her. "If I was really good, I would never have let things go this far with you. You mean too much to me, and if you stay with me you're going to suffer, Randy. You'll always be running, always wondering when someone might find out who I am and come gunning for me.

The 2015 reissue of OUTLAW HEARTSNEW for 2015: DO NOT FORSAKE ME, the epic sequel to OUTLAW HEARTS       This is going to be a big year for me: my husband and I will celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary, I'll reach my 70th birthday, and -- I will see my 60th published book in the bookstores! Sixty books over a total of 30 years -- that's two books a year, on average; since most of my books ranged close to 120,000 words, that adds up to a total of SEVEN MILLION, TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND words. Wow. Most of that was accomplished when I worked full time and was raising two small boys, spending 45 minutes a day just driving, doing all the untold things working mothers with kids have to do, running sons to football practice and the movies and friends’ houses, grocery shopping, doctor visits, graduations, weddings, on and on. How did I ever find the time for all of that? Guess I was just Born to Write!

       Book number 60, DO NOT FORSAKE ME, a sequel to OUTLAW HEARTS, is due for release in July. (OUTLAW HEARTS will be reissued and published in June.) The covers for these books are outstanding {what do you think!?!}, and I am planning some wonderful promotional events for these two books, which I absolutely loved writing. (Read more about OUTLAW HEARTS and DO NOT FORSAKE ME here!)

       And guess what? Both new books are already available for pre-order on, in both print and e-book editions! Pre-order now, and the books will be shipped as soon as they are released! That will be 1 June 2015 for OUTLAW HEARTS and 7 July 2015 for DO NOT FORSAKE ME.

Rosanne with her replica Colt .45

A Colt .45, much like the gun my heroes use - and my own .30-.30 rifle. The Colt is surprisingly heavy and requires a strong hand and arm to draw, cock and fire in one swift movement. That would take a LOT of practice!
