Author has written 16 stories for Paradise, Harry Potter, and Bonanza.
Hi everyone. I'm an avid reader and love to write stories of my own. I enjoy reading about families with children, any story set in the old west or pioneer era as well as modern day. My purpose for writing is for fun and to bring back some of the stories that have good values and family love in them.
My name comes from being the "mother" of a spoiled cat. Jasper is my four legged baby. He is a very happy kitty now that his Mama is retired from her teaching career. He is a little jealous of her writing on the computer and wants all the attention for himself!
I use parental discipline geared toward the era of the old west in my Paradise stories. This is not to offend anyone. It is my belief that at times, strong measures were needed to teach children instant obedience. They required obedience to save the children from harmful situations. Discipline was harsh in those times.
In the other stories, I do have the occasional use of corporal punishment for fictional (make believe) children. Warnings are posted on the summary for each story. Anyone familiar with European culture will know the Boarding Schools used to CANE students up until the 1980's. The world of Harry Potter is FICTION. Don't read the story and complain about spankings with the warnings posted. You were warned it would be there so if you have trouble with spanking children under the age of 18, don't read the story.
The pictures for the Paradise stories show the cast of the TV series Paradise which starred Lee Horsley as a gunfighter turned guardian of four children. The original characters from the series are not all in my stories however. At this time the stories are about the relationship between the single uncle, his sister's four children and the adopted teenage nephew of a close friend. The stories show their adventures together. The stories are set in the late 1800's to early 1900's. Please keep that in mind when you read. Everyday life and raising children was different in those days.
The original TV series is on You Tube if you wish to see it.
Please take time to tell me how you like the stories. The reviews are motivational to write more! I appreciate being added to favorites lists but appreciate reviews even more! Someone said reviews make you want to write more. That is very true. Reviews brighten my day.

I have written one Christmas story for Harry Potter and I am working on a series about Sirius Black being a Dad to Harry. One Bonanza story and I have the following stories based on the TV western Paradise/ Guns of Paradise. Paradise is a story similar to Bonanza, set in the old west days and a family story.
The Paradise stories can be read individually or as a series. I have numbered them to show the order if anyone wishes to read as a series but it isn't necessary to get the story. They follow a storyline of a single man inheriting a ready made family. These stories are following Ethan Cord ex gunfighter turned lawman and his five children. His sister's four children and later he is raising a friend's nephew also. Anyone who enjoys stories in the Bonanza, Little House on the Prairie or Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman would relate to Paradise. It's a similar type of series. If you take time to read, please take the time to leave a comment or two to let me know what you enjoy or even dislike. Ethan is new to parenting and it takes time for him to adjust to having sole responsibility for them. He has to learn to ease off the strict disciplinarian gunfighter and learn to be a Dad. Come join in on the fun and mischief in Paradise.
