Kindle Editions Now Available, including Sariah's Back Door

How happy I am to announce the arrival of my novels and novellas on Kindle, including my new novel, Sariah's Back Door:

When Sariah Brown, a woman with a secret past, finds a skeleton buried in her back yard, she calls upon Dr. Reuben Sands, a renowned archaeologist, to help her unearth it. While Sariah makes contact with a young Native American from the 1500's, she must also determine what her mission is regarding him. As she prepares to begin another journey to ancient America, one question haunts her: Will Reuben join her?

Lured into a web of mystery and danger, Reuben’s heart is torn between his attraction to Sariah and his logic for the laws of nature. Entangled in matters that defy science and sanity, Reuben must learn the truth about Sariah’s Back Door, or die trying. His discovery throws all his previous beliefs into an unfathomable abyss, leaving him shaken to the core. What he does with this newfound knowledge will impact his life in ways he never imagined possible, if only he has the courage to believe . . . .

Sariah’s Back Door is a compelling, inspirational, time-travel mystery-romance.

All of my other novels, written prior to 2008, are also available on Kindle.
Be sure to look for:

One Last Gift, first book in the Gift Series: Kayla Dawn Allen gave up religion ten years ago to pursue a lifestyle completely foreign to her upbringing. When she receives a disturbing telephone call from her father, Mont, she reluctantly leaves her fiancĂ©, her sailboat, and her challenging career in San Diego, and hastens to her childhood home high in the Uintah Mountains. Her return stirs up questions from her past she thought she'd buried years before: Why does Mont tenaciously cling to his faith, regardless of his daughter's denouncement of it? Isn't God just a crutch people use when they don't understand science? Does her mother really live in the Spirit World, as Mont insists? Kayla conquers one issue after another until she faces the greatest obstacle of her life in a desperate race for survival. Will a tragedy turn Kayla's analytical heart back to God, or will it take a miracle? Can lovely Kayla be rescued from her own scientific disposition, her infatuation with Ed Sparkleman, and even more desperate and dangerous elements in One Last Gift? At the supremely satisfying conclusion, you will be left with the question, “What about Ed?”

An Angel’s Gift second book in the Gift Series: Ed Sparkleman meets his match when Alyssa drops in on the Bar M Ranch (literally!) and disrupts his life forever. As ranch foreman, Ed is responsible for keeping his men in order, but with Alyssa around, all the ranch hands begin to act oddly out of character, especially Ed. Is Alyssa truly An Angel’s Gift sent straight to him from heaven? If so, what about his brother, Abbot?

The Tyee’s Gift third book in the Gift Series: Set in the picturesque Pacific Northwest, adventure meets Abbot Sparkleman when he discovers the greatest archaeological site of the century and falls in love with the beautiful and mysterious Bekah. The Tyee’s Gift will bring tears of laughter, joy and heartache while Abbot learns where much is given, much is required.

Charity’s Gift fourth book in the Gift Series: When Hans comes face to face with a ferocious shark, it strikes less fear than vivacious and attractive Charity, who throws his heart into a spiraling nose-dive deep in the Pacific Ocean. The only way he can salvage their crumbling romance is to find her missing father, who's been absent from Charity's life for almost twenty-five years. Charity's Gift will touch your heart forever.

The Refiner’s Gift: the fifth and final novel in the Gift Series, should be read last in order to maintain the continuity of suspense. Tom Sparkleman confessed to a brutal crime eight years ago, and he has been paying the price ever since. Parents shun him and women want nothing to do with him. As Tom agonizes over questions in his mind and heart, he asks the Lord, Am I still a child of God? Is there no miracle in store for me? Then, a raging flash flood sweeps Tom’s tainted world aside . . . setting in motion events that will shape the man Tom is yet to become, and he is astounded at just how much the Refiner is truly mindful of him. In The Refiner’s Gift, Tom learns God carries each of us during our most difficult trials, while giving us courage and strength to lift the burdens of others. The Refiner’s Gift includes the ultimate gift for Tom Sparkleman, a man who let liquor nearly destroy his life five years ago. What miracles the Lord has in store for him, Tom can only dream about, for Tom does not believe he will ever find a woman who will love him regardless of his past. The miracle for Tom will exceed his wildest expectations, and will thrill the Sparkleman and Clark Clans for generations still unborn.

Gardenia Sunrise: Brandje (pronounced Bran-dee) never considered herself one of the Shepherd’s lost lambs until she learns that she has cancer. Broken-hearted and frightened by the drastic measures it will take to provide even the remotest hope for a cure, she flees to her villa on the west coast of France where she hopes to prepare herself emotionally and spiritually to meet God. Her plans are altered when Nathan, an American with a hot temper, arrives for his annual holiday at the villa, unaware that his reservation has been canceled. Brandje’s remarkable journey of spiritual and romantic discovery touches both heart and soul with enlightenment, hope and inspiration. Gardenia Sunrise is a stand-alone novel and not part of any series or saga.

Excerpt: Nathan pondered the situation carefully as he nudged the door open again with the toe of his shoe. A woman was sleeping in his bed. His bed! His reaction changed from surprise to anger, which frustrated him even more because of his struggle to conquer his quick temper. She had no right! He’d rented the villa legally and she would have to go . . . then Nathan grinned mischievously and arched an eyebrow. This might prove a very interesting situation, he decided at once. Very interesting indeed!

Gentle reader, please be aware that while medical science has expanded far beyond the medical parameters in this novel, Gardenia Sunrise was written when transplantation was in its infancy. It is the author’s hope that current medical knowledge will advance even further. Perhaps in the future a patient may be able to swallow a simple pill and grow his or her own new organs, bones, muscles, etc. Regardless, Gardenia Sunrise gives a message of hope and resilience that may be able to mend even Brandje’s broken heart.

Search for the Warwick II: Proving once and for all why she is known as the writer of miracles, Sherry Ann Miller’s absorbing sequel, Search for the Warwick II, concludes the search for John Dunton's son who is enslaved in 1630's Algeria, where a generous reward has been offered for John's capture.

Oregon Flame: This novella opens with a punch, has white-knuckled, page-turning power, and delivers the miraculous impact for which Sherry Ann has earned her reputation.
