SCP Wounded Warriors Blog Hop



Welcome! I’m thrilled to once again participate with my fellow Secret Cravings authors in supporting and honoring our veterans for their sacrifice and service. 

Every author on this hop has pledged to donate at least $30.00 to the Wounded Warriors Project. For every comment left by a reader, I will donate an additional dollar to this worthy cause. For anyone who is interested in also making a donation or to learn about supporting our veterans, just click this link to the Wounded Warriors Project.

Personally, I enjoy reading and writing stories with military heroes. In my novel BLUE HORIZON, Beckham Connors is an Army veteran turned mercenary.


BLUE HORIZON blurb:

Part of a secret government project, Elena Davidson's life is in serious jeopardy when she is kidnapped by terrorists. Safeguarding 'Blue Horizon' isn't just a mission to Elena. She knows that if its purpose is revealed and if it falls into the wrong hands, it could be dangerous for the entire world.

Beckham Connors has a simple mission: the retrieval of Elena Davidson, no matter what the cost. He has orders to rescue Elena from her captors and to send her home to America, or if necessary--kill her. Whatever happens, she cannot be left alive on Iranian soil.

Available on Amazon and B&N

  1. My favorite romantic military movie is An Officer and A Gentleman. I remember seeing it for the first time while my husband and I were stationed in Germany. The movie had great emotion.

    Thank you for participating in the Wounded Warrior Blog Hop! Our wounded heroes deserve our respect and support. My husband and I are also veterans, and when we go out, he wears his Desert Storm ball cap. It always warms my heart when someone stops to thank him for his service.
