Mary Ann grew up in New York, as the daughter of an immigrant Irishman and a housemaid. Her coming of age was marked as the day she started work. The young woman of the house where she is employed is full of wild ideas and tries to drag Mary Ann into her schemes. One such scheme finds Mary Ann agreeing to exchange letters with a man settling in the west, which gives her a reason to imagine wide-open skies and life on the frontier.
Widowed at a young age, Mason has been left to care for his son, James, and his land alone. They have enough to get by, but it’s hard to work the land, run the cows, and keep a toddling boy out of trouble. His sister and her husband help where they can, and they keep offering to take his son for a time, but Mason can’t bear the thought of letting the boy go live with them. Love is the last thing on his mind as he tries to figure out how to keep moving forward.
Hannah, Mason’s sister, doesn’t think her brother should be trying to do everything alone. He won’t listen to her pleas to do something to find a wife, so she takes matters into her own hands.
Can two people, tricked by a sister with good intentions, find love on the frontier?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Writing a sweet/clean romance was something new for me to try. My previous books deal with really hard life topics (like suicide, addiction, teen pregnancy). I thought it would be refreshing and it would challenge my creative process/ability to write something different. Joining this multi-author project and writing "A Maid for Mason" has blessed me greatly.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I read through some of my own family histories, then I started letting my imagination shape these characters around the story hook (Mail-order mama) and that family history. I drafted several parts a few times to get them right.
