Move 'em out!   
Elizabeth and Jacob (and the cows) finally reach their destination in the still-serial OverTime 03: Slipping (still available on WattPad).  It will be turned into a real book sometime in 2018. And lest you go into withdrawal, never fear -- there's a 4th book in town! Check out the serial novel of OverTime 04: Settling, also on WattPad, with new chapters every Monday!

WHAT'S NEW???(as of  January 2018

Because this website is almost 20 years old now, it's about time for me to get a better one. Don't worry -- I'll keep the same domain names, so you should not have trouble finding it. It should have great extras like, oh, the ability to buy my books by clicking on a simple link. (Wow -- what a future!)

I finished the very long and leisurely OverTime 3: Slipping but have had to move it off of JukePop and onto WattPad, because JukePop is giving everyone "403 errors" (RIP, JukePop, and thank you for helping me finish the book!)  The book will stay on Wattpad until I publish it in book form (hopefully this year!) But in the meantime....

While OverTime 03: Slipping finishes the longest cattle drive in literary history, Jacob and Lillabit's adventures are continuing in the currently-being-written OverTime 04: SETTLING! You've got to admit, there were a few scores left to settle on the time-traveling front, and this is the book in which to do it! Check in every Monday for a new, free chapter! ​ (And if you're willing, feel free to comment -- it keeps me going!)

The wait for a prequel to the "Rancher's Daughters" series is OVER!  And it's OVERTIME.

A girl doesn’t wind up naked in a Kansas creek bed without asking herself the tough questions. If the first one is “Who am I,” she’s in for a rough time… or maybe the wrong time completely! 

Despite the reluctant help of an 1870s trail-boss, “Lillabit” finds only contradictions. Though she’s guileless, her language shocks Texas cowboys. Though independent, she can’t rein a horse. She’s smart, but not about “current” events. And her dreams feature elevators, electricity, plumbing—and impossibility.  

Something awful has happened. So as Lillabit acclimates to the slow, steady world of an Old West cattle drive, is she really finding herself? Or is she, just maybe, losing worlds more than her memory?

for more about OVERTIME 
THE PRINCESS OF CLEVES isn't   my book, only my abridgement. It was written in the 1600's by one Madame de LaFayette. However, I teach it during my World Lit 2 class, and students were struggling. So I took the two different public domain translations and a French version (thank you Babel Fish!), and I abridged and modernized it for the casual reader. Click on the book to see it on Amazon.com
I know the truth now:  I'm not from around here!

Amnesia was easier.

Stranded in 1870s Dodge City, Lillabit remembers: She's Elizabeth Rhinehart, a modern woman thrown back in time against her will.

Also? Someone may be out to kill her.

Her only hope of returning home lies with a trio of scientists in Colorado. To get there, Elizabeth needs safe passage with someone she can trust...  someone like the no -nonsense trail boss who first rescued her from the desert. But even if Jacob Garrison lets her rejoin his cattle drive toward Wyoming--once he learns her secrets, will he let her go home? Will she want to?

"And we lived happily ever--uh oh." 

Time traveler Elizabeth, aka “Lillabit,” hardly expects miracles from her 19th-century marriage. But abandoning her modern world or love of an 1870s trail boss is hard enough without stampedes. 

And storms. 

And Indians.. 

And bounty hunters. 

Is the struggle to adapt worth it if she loses herself en route to Wyoming? Or will that prankster, Time, rob Lillabit of home and family forever?

Book 3 in the continuing series
(But wait! The trail drive may be over, but the adventures continue in OVERTIME 04: SETTLING.)

“I am safe and happy in 1878. I am—DAMMIT!”

Elizabeth Rhinehart Garrison, who was sent into the past against her will, has settled into 1870s Wyoming with her rancher husband and adorable stepson. But when she is forced to timeslip back to present-day Chicago, can she get back to the Old West life that she chose? Or will she, like her husband, decide she has a few scores to settle first?
