More About my Upcoming Novel

Some of you have been wanting to know more about the novel that I wrote. So I thought I tell you a little bit about it. 

The Shadow Catcher's Daughter (formerly titled Sunlight and Shadows) is my contribution to a 3 book set about romance in the Four Corners (CO, UT, AZ, NM). This historical romance is set in 1875 in Colorado and New Mexico Territories during the surveying expedition of the four corners, which will mark the quadripoint where all four states/territories meet.

Eliana Van Horn has assisted her renowned father with his photography for years. When he is asked by the U.S. Land Grant Office to be the official Photographer for a government survey of Four Corners, he insists that his assistant be allowed to accompany him. Eliana's own heritage shines a light on her own self discovery on this grand adventure.

Yiska Wilcox, is hired on as the Guide for the Four Corners survey expedition. Son of a mountaineer and a Navajo woman, he lives and breathes the freedom of the great southwest. When he meets Eliana he soon discovers that his heart is not as free as he thought, he has been living in the shadows of his past and longs to understand who he really is. (Yaska is Navajo for "after the night has passed".)

Eliana and Yiska are worlds apart, but are they willing to stake a chance on love?
