  • What is the reading order of your books?

This is the number one question I am asked by fans. With over eighty ebooks, novellas and collections now available for purchase and several series many fans prefer to read my books in order.  Although I best known for writing big family romance series, every book can be read as stand alone. But for more reading enjoyment many prefer to read in series order, as a family grows, as the characters evolve, fall in love and overcome many of the challenges thrown their way.  So to begin let's start with my bestselling series and fan favorite The Friessen Legacy which now spans three series.

The Outsider Series: An Emotionally charged romance series beginning with the Amazon Bestseller, The Forgotten Child. This book alone sold over 500,000 copies worldwide and is now translated into French and German.

Available in eBook, Audiobook & Paperback

All the collections are available at a discounted Price!

So let's get into the nitty gritty of my series and the books and how they are all tied together.

The Forgotten Child -  Brad & Emily- over 500,000 copies sold worldwide. Over 900 reviews!

THE SAVED SERIES is a hot military suspense with a love story set in a military setting. Saved is the very first book I wrote!  It wasn't originally titled Saved, but was my step into the world of publishing. After receiving the rights back from my publisher in 2013, I rewrote SAVED and changed the content back to the original intent  of the story. This is a dark theme. A dark subject.

  • I enjoy reading and re-reading your books. Following family lines through children, grandchildren and growing up. Marriage, more grandchildren is great. I was particularly interested in young Becky married to Tom, a dark character. After reading he left Becky and family for his latest love, then went back to work it out. Was there a book which told her story after that? Did he have a secret agenda? I thought of many different ways to have this end. Preferably finding a great job, caring for her family, and maybe a different love interest. She had so much potential.
