All about Tanya’s tender tales

Welcome to my front porch! ! No need to wipe the sand from your shoes–just kick off your boots or sneakers or flipflops…you can even stick around here barefoot! Whatever you’re wearing or whatever mood you’re in, you’re bound to find something to read on my bookshelf.  Please stay a while.

News Flash: My first-ever World War II story comes out soon. Stay tuned! Nearby is first-up in this mystical anthology A SONG TO REMEMBER  where each author’s story is based on a historic popular songs. “Someone to Watch Over Me” inspired Stella and Ty’s story…are there really angels?


My latest from The Wild Rose Press, WHEN HEARTS FLY, is now available. Innkeeper Cordy Meeker wants a cowboy all her own, but her late and very bad twin brother has gotten her in trouble with the bank.  Leaving Paradise, Nebraska for Colorado seems impossible. Until she fells into the arms of a handsome British nobleman wearing a Stetson.

img_5148-2Hawk Shockley, stalled on his way to Colorado,  is as desperate as she is. Concocting a scheme to prove horses can fly promises some fast cash for them both. But Hawk’s life is in danger. Can last-second wedding vows save them both? And when Eadweard Muybridge–real life father of the motion picture–burst into town, is he friend? Or foe?

Then…journey along with me and seven other terrific authors as we explore every thinkable mode of transportation in the Old West.  I’m honored to have my story Sorry in the wonderful multi-author anthology JOURNEY OF THE HEART, all about Wild West transportation getting lovers together. My preacher’s-niece heroine Sarah, aka Sorry, scandalizes Truckee, California, by Riding a Bicycle. And nearly runs down a handsome preacherman who’s trying to find his way. And his heart. 


Last Christmas, Hubs and I had an amazing Christmas of sixteen kinfolk for three days, but some added mistletoe was some great reviews for CHRISTMAS LIGHTS, latest in the Hearts Crossing Ranch series.

Why not take a sleigh ride to the ranch and find your heart?


Coming in June~ the entire Hearts Crossing Ranch series, all eight stories in one big book!


I was a happy wahini in Hawaii last fall when my first-ever Time Travel romance Witchy Woman released during Cobblestone Press’s Octoberfest! You’ll have a fun ride going back with Allie and Pack to Salem, Massachusetts…one of my favorite places…in 1644 where they Save The World, (just kidding), fall in love (of course!) and, oh, it has nothing to do with witchcraft. (Oh, and it’ll soon be in print!)


Stay in touch, stay strong, and God bless!
