Good Morning Friends,
It is ALWAYS a pleasure to introduce you to a new writer with his or her debut title, but this one is especially special to me!
I met Winona Bennett Cross (aka: Nona) back in 2002 or 2003 when she came to a Bayou Writers Group meeting and I have watched this lady grow from an aspiring writer to a published author. Although Diane's Destiny is her debut novella, Nona is published in a couple of anthologies and has one contests with her work. So it is with much joy and pleasure I you my dear friend, Nona Cross!
Winona Bennett Cross lives in southeastern Oklahoma with her husband. They have two married sons and are the proud grandparents of two beautiful little girls. Winona is a retired Registered Nurse, her specialty was nursing education and women’s health. She began writing following a fall that left her unable to work as a nurse. Writing began as journaling, to a form of hobby and finally to being serious about pursuing her love of words. She never dreamed of being an author but enjoyed any assignments in school and college that required writing and/or reading.
Winona loves animals and has a particular obsession with horses. She has a head full of dreams, most involving travel. She reads avidly and in almost every genre.
“Dianne’s Destiny” is her debut book and is part of The Scrimshaw Doll Series. Each book in the series is written by an Oklahoma author. Winona is a member of the Romance Writers of America (RWA), Oklahoma Romance Writers of America (OKRWA), Celtic Hearts Romance Writers (CHRW), Hearts through History Romance Writers (HHRW), Pioneer Hearts, and Oklahoma Writers Federation, Inc. (OWFI).
Nona loves hearing from other authors and readers. Contact her at: firstname.lastname@example.org, follow her blog, or connect with her on Facebook and Twitter @WinonaCross!
When Dianne Jacobson returns to her home town of Wichita Falls, Texas after a fifteen year absence, she hopes to find peace while recovering from panic and anxiety brought on by a mugging in New York City. The last person she expects to see is her first love, Kip Mahan–the man she left without explanation more than a decade ago.
Kip Mahan never expected the woman he couldn't forget to walk into his life at the Equestrian Therapy Center. He doesn’t know why she left him, or why she’s back now with a haunted look in her eyes.
Slowly, the two find their way to the love lost years ago. But when Dianne’s ex-husband tracks her down, it puts not only their newfound love but their very lives in danger. Will Dianne’s destiny slip from her grasp before she’s even found it?
Diane's Destiny can be purchased from Amazon and The Wild Rose Press
