Chasing Dreams, Finding Love
with smart, sexy stories set in the West, in Ireland, and wherever Love abounds.
Contemporary fiction with a step back in history and a touch of fantasy.
Welcome to Sunset Patio where family and friends gather to celebrate and share stories. I'm wishing y'all a very Merry Holiday Season and may all your sweet dreams come true. Thank you for friendship and support to continue doing what I love - sharing stories of love and life. There will be a little surprise for Readers during the holidays. Sign up for my newsletter below and be the first to know what's Mary up to, what's coming up, and something uplifting.
So Celebrate with gratitude, Give back, Pay it forward, and Get creative! Remember to retreat to romance when things get too hectic. Each of my Irish Series books features characters that deal with family love, obstacles, and misunderstandings. Just like all of us. Try them and see! (My gratitude is overflowing!)
The Irish Hearts Series was born the first time I stepped on Ireland's green shores. I fell in love with the people, the culture, and the natural beauty of the isle. I hope you have enjoyed the stories of Claire and Brianna in Ireland and Sienna in Maine. There is more romance to come. And I hear Ireland calling me back. Meantime, maybe you'll enjoy my Romancing the West Series, contemporary romance stories set in the American West.
