“About Catching Currents:
The last place Sally wants to spend the next year is at a Boston finishing school, shackled with even more rules than high society has already imposed on her. However, little does she realize that her life is about to take a dramatic turn—toward the rollicking West, where far fewer restrictions hold sway.
After she meets rowdy Caroline from the Colorado frontier, not only is an adventurous, exciting world revealed, but an unpredictable one as well. For as she watches her lively new friend attract the attention of her stuffy brother Will, Sally becomes smitten with Caroline’s brother, Teddie—a rancher who thinks nothing of disregarding a few social mores.
If only Teddie can now decide what kind of future he wants. Yet as wandering ambitions threaten to thwart their romance, all strive for contentment in a tumultuous turn-of-the-century America.
Based on true events, Catching Currents is engaging historical fiction, set amidst a nation rapidly changing and the small town of Estes Park, just trying to keep up.

Being an author is a career change for me. I once was an expert . . . uh, let us just say in a graduate scientific field . . . that no longer interests me to write about. I found, much to my personal amazement, that I preferred scribbling historical fiction novels. Especially if they made me laugh while I was either researching or writing them.
My family lives in a DC suburb, but I enjoy travelling and visiting, in particular, our Estes Park, Colorado, cabin adjacent to Rocky Mountain National Park. The dogs usually come with me for the thirty-hour drive because I despise flying and motorcar everywhere I can. So why not give the pooches a vacation as well?
My family thinks I am a bit nuts in this regard and they fly everywhere they can. So I am the doggy transporter while they meet me at the chosen destination. Of course, this does not always work out, depending on where that vacation site actually is, and I have been known to fly, but I am not especially fond of the looks I get from surrounding passengers as I grip my seat.
