Rocky Mountain Honor Flight of WWII veterans at Marine Corps Memorial

Rocky Mountain Honor Flight of WWII veterans at Marine Memorial

Dear Reader,

School is back in session, so for many of you, life can return to “normal.” I recently had the joy of being a guardian for a Rocky Mountain Honor Flight of WWII veterans – ages 85-98 – visiting numerous war memorials in Washington, D.C. and had the pleasure of sharing the stories of their service in WWII.

Among the veterans on our trip were men who: were on the beach at Iwo Jima during the flag raising, drove an LST for ten trips to Utah beach on D-DAY (carrying wounded and German prisoners on the return trips), provided support “behind the lines’ on the Solomon Islands and Guam, guarded the Panama Canal, navigated a Liberator in the skies over Europe, and made the landing (and was wounded) in Sicily. Photo above is of the entire group at Marine Corps Memorial.

I’m pleased to announce that UNFORGETTABLE, the next book in the Benedict Brothers series, is now available for pre-order from Amazon. Hooray! As you can see, I’ve made a change in the cover art (from girl to guy). You can get your copy by going to Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing link at

Here are both covers for you to see:


I want to thank all of you who have been patiently waiting for BLACKTHORNE’S BRIDE, the final book in the Mail-Order Bride series following MONTANA BRIDE. I have one more Bitter Creek novel to write, SHAMEFUL, before I can focus on finishing the Mail-Order Bride series. Hang on, it’s coming!

Take care and happy reading,

    I am so glad you have become involved in Honor Flight. My husband and I are on the Honor Flight Committee for our hub here in NE Tennessee. It is such a wonderful experience for these men and women. We had two 100 year olds on our trip this October. We do ours a bit different than most other hubs. Ours is a three day trip by bus with a stop at the D-Day Memorial in Virginia.
    I finally convinced my father to attend last year. He lives in northern New York and it took some convincing by us to have him do it. It was a great experience for him and he encourages his friends to go.
    We have been support personnel so far, but my husband hopes to be a guardian next year. It is a moving experience for them also as you know. I hope you are encouraging your friends to support and participate in this groups program.

    Your current books sound good as usual. I don’t know how you can keep several different series straight when working on them at about the same time. I hope the releases of your current and upcoming books are a great success.
