The Kelly Series

The Kelly/KGI Series centers around a military family. There are six Kelly brothers, all of whom served in different branches of the military. When the idea for this series came to me, the first question that always pops into my mind is where? For me this answer was immediate. I lived in Paris, Tennessee for several years and spent many a day on Kentucky Lake and in the Dover area. For me, it was the perfect place to base the stories.

The Kellys are a lot of fun to write. They’re loyal, hard working, fiercely competitive and family is the most important thing in their lives. Marlene Kelly is the matriarch of the large family and has a penchant for collecting “strays” as her sons tease her endlessly over. Over the years she’s added “adopted” family members to the fold and she incessantly mothers them all. Her most recent addition to the Kelly clan has her sons up in arms, but Marlene didn’t raise six rambunctious sons by being a wimp!

The first book in the series, The Darkest Hour, finds the Kelly family in turmoil after the death of Ethan Kelly’s wife a year before. Rachel was much beloved by all the Kellys and Ethan hides a dark secret about the state of his marriage before her fateful mercy mission to South America—the one she never came back from. Now on the one year anniversary of her death, he receives startling information. She’s alive.

The Tangled Hearts Series

»» Important information on the release of the rest of the trilogy! If you're interested in the release of Always Mine and Forever Ours, please read this! ««

Maya will be self publishing the Tangled Hearts trilogy, and as such, she will be setting a lower price point for the digital version. At present she doesn't have pricing information on the PRINT edition, but it WILL be available via print on demand but it will only be available to order online and will not be stocked in physical book stores as her other books are.

The Tangled Hearts trilogy will be published in ADDITION to all of Maya's regularly scheduled books and won't interfere with the publication schedule of her existing books. Because she will be writing these and fitting them into an already crowded schedule, she won't announce the publication dates for Always Mine (book 2) or Forever Ours (book 3) until she is certain that the date won't change.

It is her hope for there not to be long periods of time between the release of the first book and subsequent books, and she'll do her very best to get them into your hands as soon as humanly possible.

Because Maya is self publishing this trilogy, she will try to make it possible for ANYONE to be able to purchase and read the books which means there will be no geographical restrictions and they will be available worldwide to readers who are able to purchase digital books online as well as ordering the print edition online as well.

As always, the minute Maya has information on release dates, the information will be posted on this website, Facebook and Twitter as well as be announced in her newsletter to subscribers.
