Welcome to my home on the web. You may have noted the mountains in the banner are the misty Blue Ridge of North Carolina. Did you know time traveling Highlanders live there? Read about them in the Highland Gardens series. Curious about the big cat? Florida panther~from the Crimson Storm paranormal novel, Sea Panther.

Sneak Peek Sunday - 'Just Beyond the Garden Gate'

Another sneak peek into Just Beyond the Garden Gate. Today's post is from page 204. Elspeth is telling a ghost story...

Elspeth giggled, leaned close and cupped a hand over her mouth as if to share a secret. “The old folk say Rothesay Castle is haunted by the ghost of a lady.”


“Aye. They say she stabbed herself after Norseman slaughtered her family, preferring death rather than submitting to a forced marriage with a barbarian.”

“Horrible story.” Laurie feigned revulsion. She’d decided to marry her barbarian.

“Aye ’tis. I heard the lady’s apparition often is seen on the stairs behind the chapel. And Jonet told me one time they found fresh blood on the stairs that couldn’t be explained.” Elspeth made a disgusted face. Then taking Laurie by the arm, she smiled broadly as if she hadn’t been talking about ghosts and blood and suicide.

They linked arms and strolled to the boats, chatting about the absurdity of the tale.
