Romance, Historical Fiction, Fantasy, Paranormal, all sorts of characters and plots evolve from a vivid imagination. I came to Alaska kicking and screaming in 1976, and I never want to leave. I cut firewood on shares for money to get through the winter. I swore I would not live above the Alaska Range because it was too cold there and wound up in the Copper River Basin where it got just a cold as Fairbanks. My second husband, a Scot from Glasgow, was the love of my life. When I write Scots dialect, I experienced hearing it from my in-laws. Each time my husband got on the phone to Scotland after five seconds, I could hardly understand a word. I was my second husband's chief mechanic's helper and roadie. I live in a cabin which is slowly being surrounded by the city and wish I were further out. My two cats and Husky-Collie mix dog are happy in our little slice of heaven called Alaska. In the silence of winter dreams of people and places provide a rich pool of ideas to explore.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
MacFarlane’s, The Cheat, is a fun read in a quirky kind of way. The two main characters, Francis and Monte are extremely lovable and true to real life. The characters are well-developed exhibiting all the insecurities and flaws that plague us as we search for true soulmate. There’s Francis, an ordinary paralegal, believing she’s fat and forty, and Monte, a popular guitar player with a local band, who thinks Francis is “fancy" fabulous. But there was no convincing Francis of that. She has no confidence in her ability to have and keep Monte; after all, she’d been down that road before and had lost her husband to the town tramp. So her self-confidence had taken a beating, all she was waiting for was for Monte to tell her it's over. Things took a different turn than she’d expected and poor Francis was having great difficulty accepting the obvious. This was a quick, fun and interesting story. I read it in one sitting.
