Pre-order Pioneering

Background 5

One family’s saga had only just begun… In the epic sequel to Cavalcade we find out what happens to the Herriots once they arrive in Oregon and take up their claim. 

Erin and Molly have arrived in Oregon with their family.  Granted six-hundred and forty acres of land for married couples under the Organic Laws of Oregon they have to build their home, farm, and eke out a living from the raw land.  Wolves, bears, and wildcats are the least of their worries in this new land.  Hard work and trust in each other to do their very best are the keys to conquering the wilderness as they pioneer their lives on the high plains of Oregon!

Come along as they and their family live a life that few attempted in this wilderness near the Blue Mountains of Oregon.  Part of the fantastic set of prequels to Vetted and Vetted Further!

Cavalcade ~ NEW

Calvacade Background 1

Molly didn’t know what kind of life to expect when she fell in love with Erin Herriot—her schoolmate, her best friend, and a woman.  She had been grateful for Erin’s friendship when the bank swindled her after selling her parents’ farm and she was invited to live on Erin’s parents’ farm. 

After making the difficult decision to live life as ‘man and wife,’ Molly gladly accepted the challenges before them.  Together, they made the decision to sell Erin’s farm and embark on the journey of a lifetime…on the Oregon Trail.

Erin couldn’t give Molly children; however, she could love her forever.  But leaving the area where they had both grown up and where everyone knew the women was the only way they could be together without questions about the true nature of their relationship. 

Come along on their adventure as two women cross the country, adopt a family, and begin a life that neither had imagined possible growing up in the mid-1800s.

Now available from Amazon and several of the other platforms!  Click here to get all the links as they are available.  Including the link to Pre-Order the delicious sequel due out in two months called PIONEERING!

Survivors ~ NEW

I am pleased to FINALLY announce my latest release SURVIVORS!G.jpg

For some, the world would end with the dropping of the bombs.  For others, a select few, it would present an opportunity to show their true mettle.  Those who will take on the challenge to live without, make do, and subsist on, are the survivors.

Jodi was one of the few.  She knew what was coming.  She read the signs, and she had friends in low places who kept her informed.  She bought a cabin in the middle of nowhere, fixed it up, and warned her closest friends and family that the time would come to abandon the big cities, to hide and seclude yourself for the safety of your family and everyone closest to you.

Krista was her partner, her best friend, and her wife at a time when states didn’t recognize same-sex marriage.  Krista coped with her mate’s compulsions by recognizing that indulging her was the best way to maintain a harmonious union.  After all, they could afford it.  Little did she realize that Jodi was destined to be the savior of them all.

Finding that things were much worse than everyone had speculated didn’t surprise Jodi.  But it would forever alter her family’s world view and transform them into something they hadn’t realized they were destined to become…SURVIVORS!

Available directly from my website as well as with all the links so you can get your copy.

I thought this was a great story and I highly recommend it. There is a really interesting story line that sucks you right in. The author did a great job developing the characters and you feel like you get to know everyone while you are rooting for them all to overcome the obstacles that they face in order to survive. This was a well written book that doesn’t follow a standard plot line. There are plenty of shocks and surprises along the way. I really liked both of the two main characters who were good people without being perfect.

Ever wonder what will happen if the world finally does go crazy? K’Anne does a good job giving us an idea! Jodi and Krista just wanted a place to go for peace and quiet. They always hoped that’s what their cabin in the woods would be, a refuge to decompress from the rat race. Little did they know that one day the cabin would become their castle!
I really liked this story and the thought K’Anne put into it! If you want to read a book that you won’t want to put down, start reading Survivors now! It’s well written and well edited! A really good read!

I permanently borrowed a book

The year was somewhere about 1980-1981 or 1982…I don’t exactly recall.  It was assigned reading for grumpy Mr. Crawford’s English class, but it made such an impression on me, I kept the book.

20171021_200227 20171022_204414

They stamped it Sept 9, 1974 so you can imagine how old this book really is.  It takes place in the 50’s or 60’s…I don’t completely remember.  However, I do remember the premise and it stayed with me all these years.  What if someone dropped the bombs, and how would you survive?

In 2011 I started out writing exactly a scenario like that, not copying Pat Frank’s Alas Babylon version at all, but my own story that this one definitely influenced.  I wrote a bit, and then I put it aside with all my other half-finished (even quarter-finished) novels.  I’ve picked it up again, feeling the same emotions that cross me every time I think of this scenario.  It is emotional to think what would happen if our politicians allowed ‘the button’ to be pushed.

I picked up the book after I finished my own, to refresh my feelings on both and wow, haven’t we learned anything since the Cuban Missile Crisis?  I mean really, same old politicians and stupidity that were around 40-50 years ago?

My book deals with one tiny section of the world and the characters that inhabit it, that survive after the bombs have fallen.  This family, how they survived, what they do, the morality of it all, and how they cope, is the centerpiece of this story.  I hope this never happens, never comes true.  

Here is the synopsis for my upcoming book:

For some, the world would end with the dropping of the bombs.  For others, a select few, it would present an opportunity to show their true mettle.  Those who will take on the challenge to live without, make do, and subsist on, are the survivors.

Jodi was one of the few.  She knew what was coming.  She read the signs, and she had friends in low places who kept her informed.  She bought a cabin in the middle of nowhere, fixed it up, and warned her closest friends and family that the time will come to abandon the big cities, to hide and seclude yourself for the safety of your family and everyone closest to you.

Krista was her partner, her best friend, and her wife at a time when states didn’t recognize same-sex marriage.  Krista coped with her mate’s compulsions by recognizing that indulging her was the best way to maintain a harmonious union.  After all, they could afford it.  Little did she realize that Jodi was destined to be the savior of them all.

Finding that things were much worse than everyone had speculated didn’t surprise Jodi.  But it forever altered their world view and transformed them into something they didn’t realize they were destined to become…SURVIVORS!
