It’s an absolute joy to get to team up with Thomas Nelson and Harper Collins Christian Publishing for a brand new Appalachian Romance series!



I’ve had the HONOR of signing with Harper Collins Christian Publishing for a new historical series – the 1st book releasing summer 2018 from Thomas Nelson!

The story sets sail when a young widow leaves Norway for America to make a new start housekeeping for her late husband’s cousins—three rough & tumble brothers who brew cider in the hills of Appalachia. It’s a beauty-from-ashes tale, a swoon-worthy romance, and delves deep into the bond and rivalry between brothers.

As the forefront brother can neither hear nor speak, the dearness in this series also lives in writing from the perspective of a Deaf character. Having taken American Sign Language and Deaf studies in my school years, it’s an utmost privilege to share the heart of a silent and steady hero as well as the love story that will abound.

A special thank you to my agent, Sandra Bishop, for paving the way, and to the team at Harper Collins for so stoutly believing in me and these books. Also, a very special thank you to all YOU dear readers for celebrating this new adventure and making the writing journey so incredibly special!
