Pick of the week

I am honoured that my new release Abigail Cottage has been named Pick of the week by thriller writer Lorrie Struiff

Check it out!!

Abigail Cottage

When Abigail falls in love with Justin she can’t begin to know the world of hurt she is heading into. Gorgeous, kind, rich – he’s the man we all dream to meet. BUT, all is not what it seems because Justin is a true demon from hell, disguised as a mortal being. He wants her and will do, kill or maim anyone who tries to stop him. Namely Shaun the real hero, who wants Abigail more! So what does a mortal man do against a demon? He enlists the help of a gypsy of course. But not any old gypsy. Rosa knows Justin very well and has the powers of the spirit world on her side to fight him. Using crystals as a powerful weapon, the light of the spirit world to lead them, they embark on a battle with the whole of the underworld. Many loved ones will lose their lives. This isn’t a book where everyone survives. In real life, bad things happen. In Abigail Cottage, terrible tragedies occur too. Believe... not every story can have a happy ending.

Cate Masters

I’ve stoked the log fire, mulled the wine and heated the mince pies. All we need now is cate Masters, and here she comes battling against the snow and wind, looking very glam in her faux fur coat.

The door opens, wind whistles in, snow follows cate, leaving small puddles on the wood floor…

Happy holidays!

What a fun idea, sharing recipes, Margaret. If only our parties weren’t always virtual! It would be a blast to get together with everyone and raise a cheer.
One of my favorite treats is Pfeffernuesse cookies. Actually I just like saying Pfefferneusse, it sounds like something Monty Python might cook up, lol. But they are yummy and snowball-like, so fitting to serve up this holiday. Just don’t say ‘bless you’ when the hostess brings around the tray and offers, “Pfefferneusse?”
Making them’s a two-step process, so start early.

Pfefferneusse Cookies

• 4 cups all-purpose flour
• 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
• 1/2 cup white sugar
• 3/4 cup light molasses
• 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
• 1/2 cup butter
• 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
• 2 eggs
• 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
• 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar for decoration

1. Stir together flour, sugar, baking soda, spices, and dash black pepper.
2. In large saucepan, combine molasses and butter; heat and stir until butter melts. Cool to room temperature.
3. Stir in eggs. Add dry ingredients to molasses mixture; mix well. Cover. Chill several hours or overnight.
4. Shape into 1" balls. Place on greased cookie sheet.
5. Bake at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) for 12 to 14 minutes or until cookies are done. Remove. Cool. Roll in powdered sugar.

To otherwise warm the cockles of your heart, you should read my latest Eternal Press release, Follow the Stars Home:

Reviewers have described it as: “an insightful and entertaining novel that’s bound to teach you a few things about history. Kudos to Cate Masters for another winning novel. You won’t be able to put Follow the Stars Home down until you turn the last page.” And “The love story between Black Bear and Quiet Thunder is tenderly told, and well-written.” And “Quiet Thunder and Black Bear love each other. But can their love survive them being uprooted from their people, betrayed and lied to by the white man? Will they ever find their way back to their own people?

You will have to read this story to find out. But it is a fabulous journey, and you will enjoy it every step of the way.”

You can read an excerpt, the full reviews, and view the trailer here. Feel free to browse around my website a bit: And please visit my blog: I’d love for you to like me on Facebook:
