I have always loved animal stories. Plus, I attended Penn State University, home of the Nittany Lions, so when I got the idea for a romance involving a mountain lion, I naturally decided to set it in Central Pennsylvania. Little did I know, until Id begun doing research, that cougars were extinct there since long before the Nittany Lions were named.

All the better for a paranormal romance. In STRANGER ON THE MOUNTAIN, a family legend provides that Dawn Perry can only find true love when mountain lions return to Central Pennsylvania. Has Jonah Campion come into her life because a mountain lion has appeared?

But Dawn is determined to save the cougar from hunters by placing it in the safety of her grandfathers animal sanctuary. And Jonah is an ex-con who reveres freedomhis own, and the mountain lions. Hows that for conflict?

Another thing I learned with research: its hard to find one particular new Beanie Baby! But Ive latched onto a couple Canyon the Cougars, along with another plush cougar, and Im giving them away. Ill miss them, but Im sure my readers will give them good homes.
