Beth loves Sam so much that it hurts, but he is a prisoner to his past. Listening to her broken heart, Beth packs up her belongings and flees Eagle River in the middle of the night, hoping to leave all of the pain and the heartache behind. Five years later, a mysterious stranger—and a phone call from a deceased friend—convince her that Sam is in danger and she needs to go back. With her heart in her hands, she returns to Sam and the Thunder Ridge Ranch, but will her love be strong enough to save both of them before time runs out?
Fallen Angel is a spiritual romance that examines the theory that souls are bound together across time. This theory, commonly referred to as ‘old souls’, explains the concept of love at first sight, of feeling at home with a complete stranger, and even the unbearable loneliness we sometimes feel in the midst of a crowd. Old souls journey together through a succession of lives side by side. Sometimes, they are siblings, sometimes lovers, sometimes devoted friends—but always, they are together, helping and guiding each other on their way home. What happens, though, if such a soul gets lost—if it cannot see its way clear to continue its journey? Sam is just such a soul, and Beth must find a way to convince him that nothing is stronger—or more enduring—than love.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This book was written over a six-month period in my life when I was dealing with several personal challenges. Writing has always been the salve in my life that has helped me to keep it all together—and saved me a small fortune in counseling expenses. While several aspects about Beth could certainly be viewed as autobiographical (who doesn’t love riding on the ‘Tilt ‘o Whirl’?), rest assured that all of the characters in this book are fictional. And, while Eagle River, Baraboo, and the other towns mentioned throughout the story really do exist in Wisconsin (please, come visit us!), the supper clubs, the ranch, and Steve’s Garage are all figments of my imagination. Thank you for joining me on this journey!
