Brittle Silver is on the Shelves

I am excited to have both my novels, Brittle Silver and We Are the Warriors available on the shelf at Barnes and Noble in Bozeman, Montana! 

Brittle Silver is also available at Isle of Books in Bozeman and Butte, Montana!

After all the dedication to research and writing craft for years, it is affirming and delightful to have the generous and friendly support of local bookstore owners and managers. I hope many readers can be inspired by the journey of Vic and Jago. May the invitation to experience 1893 Granite and Philipsburg, Montana through Brittle Silver bring fresh insight and new questions.

Special thanks to the Bozeman Writers Group, Montana Chapter of SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) and Women Writing the West for all their support, education, writing critiques, and friendship over many years.

Announcing the Release of my new novel, Brittle Silver!


I am so excited to see my historical fiction, Brittle Silver, up and available on Amazon as well as other book distribution centers! The streets of Granite and Philipsburg, Montana of 1892 have come alive again. Sixteen-year-old Vic Keegan, after traveling back in time to the year of the Great Silver Panic, resolves to do whatever it takes to survive until she can find a way back home. Vic's growing affection for the young Cornish miner, Jago (Yah-go) Pendarvis complicates her shrewd deception. Meanwhile, the threats to the town and mine escalate as the silver crisis deepens.

My special thanks to all the editors, proof readers, family encouragement, and research assistance from so many people and organizations. I am so indebted to my dear husband, Jerry, who though he is no longer with us, was such a support to my writing and research. I will always remember him riding a four-wheeler in the Flint Creek Mountains, happily exploring old Granite and the many mining camps in the mountains.

Reviews would be greatly appreciated. Check with me about quantity discounts. I hope to give updates and more info. from all my historical research in future posts.
