Adult romance: Bewitched
Margaret Crowl has been through hell. She survived her father’s interference in her earlier life which almost — almost made her not want to go on. Her brother, Josh, and others set her on a new path. She witnessed Josh’s courtship and marriage to Petra (Forever) and her best friend, Marissa’s sorrow and eventual happiness (Always). Now she must find her own happiness and strength to stand up to her father.
Could Howard Hall be the answer to her dilemma? Will she again be denied a life of love and happiness, or can she bewitch Howard Hall to make her his?
Joshua Braeddon Crowl is attracted to the feisty beauty he discovers in the orchard where he has been hired to pick apples. Petra Silvie Pereira is surprised by her reactions to the apple picker. One moment she is furious and the next moment she wishes he would kiss her.
When John Edward Crowl discovers his son is seeing an unknown young woman, he sets out to stop the relationship. Can this love survive?
Marissa Pharris finds herself on the honeymooner’s deck on board a cruise ship heading to Alaska without her groom. Drunk and heartbroken, Marissa gets help from Tyler Jensen, one of the two Canadian pilots guiding the large vessel from Vancouver through the Inside Passage. That help tosses Marissa from the frying pan into the fire of desire.
Always follows the lives of two lovers destined to be joined together forever.
Earlier Books and Stories
The Lone Pilgrim, published December 2011. In 2010, I wanted to mark my sixtieth in an unforgettable way. The Camino de Santiago de Compostela, the Way of St. James, in Spain, is a trek of over 790 kilometers and sounded like a challenging way to celebrate turning 60.
The Lone Pilgrim details my journey of discovery on the Camino de Santiago.
Treasure House 1, published in 2006 in London, England by MacMillan Caribbean Ltd., contains two of my stories; it is a school reader for teachers and parents.
- All Covered In Soot: Lali and her friends wish to know when the nuts off the cashew fruit will be ready to eat
- An Island Treasure: Robert (Bobo) knows there is pirate treasure in the cave, but how will he get to it, when the cave entrance is in the rocks out in the Caribbean Sea and Bobo cannot swim!
Island Garden, published in 2007 by Glaxo Smith Kline. I was one of only four authors selected to write a story for this publication slated for young patients at hospitals in the Caribbean. In the story, An Extraordinary Christmas, Alicia’s birthday falls on Christmas Day, and on her eleventh birthday she gets a special gift—the chance to celebrate in Toronto, Canada with her aunt and uncle, instead of at home in the Caribbean. What will she do with all those cold temperatures and snow instead of the warmth and sunshine of home?
Taking The Heat: Canadian Politicians In the Kitchen, published 2001. Recipes from Canadian Politicians across the country, federal and provincial. Fundraiser for soup kitchens.
The idea for Taking the Heat: Canadian Politicians in the Kitchen was born at the time my husband was a politician and I wanted to show Canadian politicians as ordinary people, doing something ordinary in their daily lives. I asked for their favorite recipes for a national cookbook. The project took two years and includes a section entitled “With Regret,” responses from those who did not contribute. It’s filled with mouth-watering recipes.
