    Belles of Wyoming Summer Collection

    While reading a series, have you ever wished you could just reading straight through books 1, 2, 3, etc. without stopping or having to wait for the next installment? Well, that is how the Belles of Wyoming multi-author series is designed. In the past, the other authors in the series and I have released 5 books back-to-back in a week’s time so that readers have five new stories to read. And even though they are shorter stories, readers have really enjoyed them. Well, I’ve got some awesome news to share with you. We have opened the summer collection to several new authors (but probably not new to you), and in…

    Roadtripping through Western USA

    Most of the time, when I’m plotting my next book, my mind usually drifts back to places I’ve been. There’s something comforting and secure about setting a story in a location I’ve actually seen and incorporating things that are special to that place in the story. Once in a blue moon, when my plot absolutely requires me to step out of that comfort zone, I will spend an eternity researching a new locale online. But only if the story really needs it. (I’m working on becoming a more adventurous writer! Maybe someday I’ll get there.)   A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of taking a wonderful road trip…

    We Love Audiobooks!

    Hi, and welcome to my website! Are you an audiobook fan? So am I! Audiobooks are so convenient with this fast-paced world we live in. When we don’t have time to read a good book, but we still want to relax or take our mind off things, they’re a great way to do that. Beginning on May 24, 2019 and running until the end of May, 10 authors of clean YA fiction, including myself, are offering one of our audiobooks in a giveaway. Mine is An Agent for Elizabeth. A few months ago, I had the privilege of working with talented audiobook narrator, C.H. Amelia. She really brought my characters…

    Tombstone Picture Gallery

    Recently my husband and I took a day trip to a small town in southern Arizona called Tombstone. You’ve probably heard of it, being the history buff that you are. However, even though I’m a native Arizonan, I’ll admit that I wasn’t always into history, and when my high school team traveled to the tiny town of Tombstone a million years ago, I didn’t realize its significance or the contributions the events of those days made to the cowboy stories that are so prevalent today. I’m happy to say that I now know better, and our recent trip gave me an even greater understanding of that time period in this…

    Terrific Christmas Ebooks

    Christmas is almost here, and as both an author and avid reader, I’ve found some clean and inspirational stories by other authors to share with you! I’ve read several of them and am currently reading one or two, while there are still others I can hardly wait to start. These are listed in no particular order except that historical stories are listed first, followed by contemporary, with a few anthologies and boxed sets to round out the list. Most of these books are new releases, but not all. NOTE: I’m NOT listing these books as sale items. They are simply great stories that I want to let my readers know…

    Another Christmas Story

    Thank you so much for signing up for my newsletter! I hope you enjoy my historical Western romance novella, The Christmas Switch! (If you haven’t signed up for my newsletter yet, you can do so on the signup page.) On this blog post, I’d like to share another Christmas story with you. I wrote this one several years ago, and it’s contemporary, but the other day at our Pinkerton Matchmaker launch party, I met a lovely woman who mentioned that she works in a nursing home. I then told her about this story which I had written and promised I would share it with her. And then I thought I…

    Welcome to My New Website!

    Hi! Welcome to my new website for my BRAND NEW PEN NAME! I’m so excited to be writing historical Western romance. I’ve been writing semi-professionally under my real name, Laura L. Walker, for four years now and have eight contemporary inspirational books, along with a few short stories that appear in anthologies, under my belt. It’s been quite a ride! But now it’s time to turn back to the past. I have enjoyed reading authors of historical Western romance such as Mary Connealy, Karen Witemeyer, and Erica Vetsch for a long time. Earlier this year, I completed a three-book series that was specifically written for a niche market, and I…
