From the author of the riveting romantic fiction drama, Passions in Paris: Revelations of a Lost Diary, and the celebrated, 5-star award-winning romantic fiction drama, Willow’s Walk, comes the intense romantic drama, The Perils of Autumn.

‘PERILS,’ a page-turner, set primarily in the early 1970s, centers on a young Kentucky woman, Autumn Leeves, born in 1946 to Abigail Leeves, an unwed mother who struggles to make ends meet. By 1970, Autumn graduates nursing school and is sent on assignment by the local hospital to care for the terminally-ill wife of middle-aged English equestrian master, Cyril Landon, owner of Landon Lawns Stables, a most successful thoroughbred racing stable located just outside Lexington, Kentucky in the posh community known as The Meadows.

Duff Taylor, world renown jockey who is tops in his field, lives full-time above the tack room at Landon Lawns and enjoys the many benefits it brings, but he also has a dark secret surrounding an unsolved racing incident from his past that he will go to any length to protect.

Autumn arrives at Landon Manor in time to be thrown into the fray and finds herself caught in the ongoing disruption that ensues.



Rusty has also released another writing “labor of love” and continuing her comedy series about Mr. Derwood J. Tugbottom with book threes and hilarious, “DERWOOD Goes CARIBBEAN.”  Now I had decided to begin DERWOOD from the beginning with book one of The Misadventures of Derwood Tugbottom.” And so far? A great and humorous read thus far! 

Then will be book two titled; “DERWOOD RETURNS” and then book three! A little bit about book three of “DERWOOD Goes CARIBBEAN” …




The austere and proud Derwood Justice Tugbottom, dejected by a defunct love affair at his current residence, the swinging Sunset Villa Retirement Center, located in the picturesque village of Vine Haven On-the-Lake, convinces his best friend, down-to-earth Scotsman Robert McEwen – also wandering through life searching for the same contentment as Derwood – to join him on a new adventure.

Christmas of 2014 is fast approaching, and an intrepid Derwood talks Robert into taking a single’s cruise to the Caribbean with him, which sends them on another eccentric adventure. Will they find what they hope to aboard ship? Will happiness present itself in one of the ports of call, or will it avoid them altogether?

Derwood Goes Caribbean is the third installment in the well-received Derwood Tugbottom comedy series beginning with, The Misadventures of Derwood Tugbottom, followed by Derwood Returns.

Watch for the fourth installment, Derwood Comes Home, coming in late 2019.
