What the Buffalo Stone brothers and Timber Wind discover in Echo Cave just might change history forever or will government agents be able to destroy all traces it ever existed? 

 Blaise, Jordan and Lelind are spending the summer in Browning, Montana, on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation, with their grandfather and spiritual leader, Owl Feather.  They stumble on a clue that triggers a search for their missing mother. 

 With friend, Timber Wind, they link his mother’s disappearance to a rich white man, James Murphy, owner of Raven Oil.  But it seems there’s more than just crooked oil deals causing unrest among the people.  FBI agents, Baldry and Barnicoat, are found dead fifty miles in the middle of no-where - on reservation land.  Why? 

 Were they stealing and selling Native artifacts like the government wants them to believe?  Or, would they do anything to whitewash a secret they thought long ago destroyed?

Living in the woods, surrounded by nature, is a fantasy of those living within the unethical confines of society.  But when you’re seventeen, even thinking about walking through the woods conjures up ghastly visions.

Taylar must forgive her father’s intentional betrayal of bringing her family to live in the remote Bob Marshall Wilderness in Montana.  Hundreds of miles from civilization, she must put aside her fears and do her part to help her family survive the challenges of dense wilderness, mountain lions, bear, rattlesnakes, and the worst animal of all – man.

Will their father realize that their neighbors aren’t what they appear to be . . . before it’s too late?  Will her almost sixteen-year-old sister, Brook, who loves hunting and nature, have what it takes to guide them out of the untamed wilderness and back to civilization?








2nd Edition 2018

 Someone wants Brett Turner’s land badly enough to sabotage him, and he knows just who the culprit is: his neighbor, Willow Howling Moon.

They don’t see eye-to-eye on anything. When their sons, who are best friends, run away into the mountains just before a blizzard hits, Willow and Brett have no choice but to go after them—together. In the course of the rescue, they discover an unexpected and unwelcome mutual love. The realization that both their lives are in danger finally convinces him she’s not his enemy.

This heartwarming love story is set in Montana


Brett Turner has mixed feelings towards his neighbor Willow Howling Moon. He blames her buffalo for his cows getting sick, but Willow insists that her herd doesn’t have brucellosis. Brett also dislikes the fact that his son likes to play with Willow’s son. As far as Willow is concerned, Sean is more welcome than his father. However, she admits he isn’t bad to look at, and despite his prejudice, Brett is physically drawn to the beautiful Indian woman. Whenever they meet they quarrel, but inevitably they are drawn together.

This book tells of dreams and legends; of the struggle to overcome fear and prejudice. Beautiful, tender and full of love, it tugs at the heartstrings. Five red roses, Larena~ RED ROSES FOR AUTHORS.REVIEWS
