Blood Moon Available Now!

The moment I heard about Sarah Wakefield's experiences during the deadly Dakota War of 1862, I knew I had to tell her story. Because Sarah was unusually sympathetic to the Dakota people's reasons for fighting, I wanted to use her as a bridge character to explore both sides of the conflict. Now my fictionalized version of her ordeal is about to be published. Blood Moon: A Captive's Tale is coming out on June 14, 2017.

Southern Minnesota, August 1862. Smoke fills the horizon and blood soaks the prairie as the Sioux fight to drive white settlers from their ancestral homeland. Sarah Wakefield and her young son and baby daughter are fleeing for their lives when two warriors capture them. One is Hapa, who intends to murder them. The other is Chaska, an old acquaintance who promises to protect the family. Chaska shelters them in his mother’s tepee, but with emotions running so high among both Indians and whites, the danger only intensifies. As she struggles to protect herself and those she loves, Sarah is forced to choose between doing what others expect of her and following her own deep beliefs.

I appreciate your help in spreading the word about my new novel!
