Pinkie’s Poetry is featured on this website

What’s a good way to get a glimpse into the inner soul of a writer? One way is to read and consider their poetry. This is an approach that can be quite different from — but nevertheless complements — the reading of the author’s books. Now, readers can finally do both! Here is the first set of Pinkie Paranya poems we provided.

— New Zealand Vacation Book Review

She woke with the sense someone was watching her — she was right...

Casey didn’t know how long she’d been asleep. She sat up, rubbing her eyes and staring into the unsmiling face of a man on a huge, black and gray speckled horse. For a moment, she credited her imagination. Had she been dreaming? He seemed too big to be real. No, this man’s sudden appearance at their picnic in the woods was not a part of her imagination, she couldn’t have dreamed up anyone like him.

She looked toward Jake who still slept, curled in a ball, hands clasped beneath his cheek. Nothing would wake her son until he was finished sleeping. Casey leaped to her feet, hands on hips, ready to do battle. With a mouth lined in cotton, she had a hard time swallowing. Her pulses raced, and the vein in her neck throbbed.

He sat easily on the horse. With his dark green wool shirt tucked in the waistband of tight, well-worn jeans and boots firmly placed in the saddle stirrups, he could have stepped from the pages of a western novel. His eyes, the color of coffee, were fringed with sooty black lashes.

Observing the stranger’s impassive, stony visage, she worried about Jake. Would he wake up at the wrong time? She wondered what to use for a weapon if she had to.

The man swept off his hat, gesturing with it toward the canyon walls. “This is Tyree land. What are you doing here?” His voice was deep, coming from his wide chest. Definitely unfriendly.

Can Jowanna McFarland survive in the sinister mountains long enough to find her missing father, solve the mystery of his buried treasure and stake a claim to the elusive heart of Kane Landry?

The old house stands in the desert, ringed in the distance by the ominous Superstition Mountains. In the night, winds whisper through the salt cedars, while somewhere in the dark, a puma screams a cry of death.

From up the narrow, shadowy staircase come noises no one is supposed to hear, the ghostly figure of a woman at the top of the stairway, and the pervasive, faint smell of perfume. Could it be the tragic ghost of the Señora of the Superstitions, a legend that has lived for a hundred years?

When Jowanna meets Kane, she is inexplicably drawn to this rough-hewn rancher but senses he holds secrets that could mean life or death to her.

Print and eBooks can be obtained by clicking here.

Flynn’s cousin Suzy, once married to Marshall Beckett, reveals details of her awful marriage to a tyrant.  She begs Flynn to see if the son she left behind is okay and locate her hidden diary, a “matter of life and death.”  Flynn is at the crossroads of her life where she can renew her contract as a concert violinist and continue life as a world traveling musician or look for something she really longs for — a home and a special person to love and share her life.

She arrives at Marshall’s horse ranch, Rainbow’s End, under the pretense of answering his ad for a nanny.  But Suzy failed to tell Flynn that in the same ad, he advertised for a wife.  Marshall is burned out of love, not trusting anyone now and wants a woman to bear him children, without investing any emotional commitments.

When Flynn meets this rugged, coppery haired Tasmanian rancher, sparks fly between them . . .
