The Way Back Home

I’m delighted to say that The Way Back Home, book two of my homecoming series, is now available for purchase. You’ll find it at all your favorite online bookstores as an eBook, plus the print version at Amazon. That link takes you to my webpage to learn more, read an excerpt and find links to the book at your favorite bookstores.

The Way Back Home is one of my classic romances, published before I began to write mainstream fiction, but it has many of the same elements of books I write today. When I wrote Runaway, the prequel, I didn’t immediately intend to continue the story. I talk more about that here, but my intention was to highlight the toll that searching for a child who is missing takes on a family and on the child or teenager. But not far into Runaway, I realized the book cried out for a sequel.

So here it is.

There’s one more book in the series. Fugitive will be released on November 1st, featuring another character introduced in Runaway.

While editing Fugitive I remembered that a character from THAT book also became one of the main characters in another! Clearly I’m very suggestable, or else my characters are very pushy. Whichever it is, watch for Desert Shadows to be reissued next year. I already have the cover, which is gorgeous. And Desert Shadows will be followed by Twilight Shadows, another sequel. I do believe that’s the end of the chain.

How fun that one idea, that came to me when I was feverish with the flu, ended up spawning five books. Stories are like that, aren’t they?
