Vetted Final Cover

Allyssa is a young college student living her life to please her upper-crust family who want her to take business courses, join her father’s business, and marry the “right” man.  Allyssa loves animals and yearns to take courses that speak to her heart, but her family are deaf to her pleas and she is unable or unwilling to stand up to them.

Fiona is an older, more established woman; a veterinarian working towards the goal of starting her own large animal practice.  When a young woman arrives on her doorstep one night carrying a dog she may have fatally injured with her car, Fiona is thrown for a loop.

Vetted—a life that neither woman anticipated, but each learns they want desperately.

Will their families, the fates, and rustlers finally bring these women to their knees?  The only way they can survive is to stand strong together, but are they both ready to fight for what they want?  Only time will tell….

Joy Parker had the perfect childhood.  Doted on by her parents, she couldn’t imagine her childhood any different.  As a child and later a young adult, she’s ignored by her much older siblings, made to feel the outsider…until a tragedy occurs, altering her life in ways she couldn’t possibly have imagined.

The next few years of her life are vastly different from her parents’ hopes and dreams for her.  Then suddenly, another life-altering event changes the course of her life and she must make decisions she never dreamt possible.  Winning the largest lottery in Wisconsin history opens the flood gates of possibility and means Joy must again decide which direction to take with the rest of her life.

After Joy is stalked relentlessly by fortune hunters, reporters, and even her own siblings, she decides to fly away into a future that she never could have imagined, let alone planned….

What would you do if you won $341,726,178.10 after taxes?  Come along for the ride as we discover what Joy Parker decides to do with it….

So, I thought, why not. It’s ‘JUST’ a matter of reformatting right?


The amount of work in going from a standard 6″x9″ book to an 8″x11″ was a surprise to me.  I started with my first novel, SHIPS.  It required a lot of work!  Surprising the discoveries too!  For instance, did you know that the typestyle is important to make it clear and concise for the reader.  That made sense to me.  But the font size was the biggest surprise.  It just LEAPS out at you as you read it.  Using the ‘standard’ size and the increase in size of the font the book would have been well over 900 pages!  Instead, I went with a bigger size and still the book was over 500 pages!  As I look at the finished product though I cannot but think how wonderful it looks and I hope those who will buy my novels will appreciate the ‘feel’ of a paperback novel in their hands as well as enjoy a good Romance!

Here is the FIRST novel I ever wrote and NOW available in LARGE PRINT!
