Author has written 3 stories for Dukes of Hazzard.
I'm a down home country girl! I've lived my entire life in Tornado Alley, ridden my horse over hundreds of miles of beautiful country and I'm not afraid of getting a little dirty. In addition to gaining inspiration for my stories from riding horses and being outdoors, I love to lose myself in a good book. A well spun plot with lots of twists, a little romance and a measure of humor to offset the tension is my favorite recipe. While I've written most of my life, I've just recently made the jump into fiction. I enjoy blogging and some of my non-fiction work has received Editor's Choice awards.
FanFiction has been a wonderful way to pass the time and I enjoy seeing how the characters we love will bend and mold to unusual circumstances. It's been rewarding to share my stories. After three long, complex pieces, I'm eager to wrap up my WIP and start a series of short stories with fun new plots. While I'm here to stay, I have a long term goal of creating a series of original ebooks so I can enjoy the freedom from canon restrictions. Creating one's own character(s), especially characters that are truly loved by the fan base, has encouraged me to branch out in original fiction.
This story is being re-written and will be dramatically changed. It can easily be followed without reading the prequel, "The Diaries of Circle M Ranch."
SUMMARY: It's been four months since Beth O'Connell left Enos the Circle M Ranch in her Will. Overnight, he has become a wealthy man, with twenty-five million dollars and all the O'Connell family assets. As part of her last wishes, she sent him on a journey to Wyoming to visit his godparents, Gus and Emily Rafferty, where she revealed certain truths (and more) in her diaries. Now he deals with the aftermath of his trip and struggles to find balance in his new life.
Daisy is still trying to rebuild her relationship with Enos after a disastrous fight this spring severed their romantic ties. After following him to Wyoming to apologize and pledge her love, she found him enamored with another woman. Determined to win him back, she stayed in Wyoming for the cattle drive, only to have things go horribly wrong. As her world spins further out of control, she meets a very intriguing, but mysterious Scotsman...the brother of her rival. Daisy returned to Hazzard in hopes that Enos would sow his oats and come back to her. When Enos returned from his trip unexpectedly, Daisy found him heartbroken. Yet he refused to give up on the woman he left behind and Daisy was forced to wait for him to recover.
Boss's scheme to steal Enos's ranch is about to have long reaching consequences for all of them. Daisy and Enos will be pulled into the mysterious past of the MacFarlands while they are forced to fight to save his ranch...and their lives.

My Thoughts On OC's:
Original Characters can be very precious creations to any author. A canon character has already been established. While some OC's are mere puppets, others are much more and come to life rather unexpectedly. When an author takes the time to create a well-written OC, they breathe life into that character and put a little piece of their heart and soul inside.
