Update: What’s New

Happy Fall, Y’all! Here’s an update on what’s new and what I’m working on:

Rescue Animal Series: Geared towards emerging readers, these are chapter books with 3rd/4th grade vocabulary. If your elementary school or library would be interested in a program about “The Power of Words”, send me an email or call my office. All dates are full for Fall 2018, but you can still reserve a date for Spring 2018 or Fall 2019. Go to the CONTACT  tab at the top of the page.

Update: FLASH and TAZ are now available in hard cover, library binding format, as well as soft cover and eBook.










Trouble in Texas series: A wild west adventure set in the frontier town of Justice, Texas. Book 1 is HANGIN’ DAY, and in a few weeks I hope to have Book 2 available, THE GREAT TRAIN CAPER.  Here’s a peek at the  beautiful cover, designed by Rory C. Keel with Carpe Diem Publishers. This is a chapter book series for ages 8-10, and a fun read for the entire family.










MAGGIE’S BETRAYAL, is a short novella that was selected for the anthology, OUR TIME ON ROUTE 66. It’s dramatic women’s fiction under the theme of forced marriage set in 1930’s Texas. Several authors of the anthology will be autographing copies of our book on Saturday, December 1 at 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM on historic 6th Street at the Lile Art Gallery, 2719 SW 6th Avenue, in Amarillo. This is book #1 in a forthcoming series, featuring stories set on the historic Mother Road.


My grandmother’s cherry salad recipe was selected for The Western Writers of America Cookbook. This is a fantastic collection of recipes from all across the United States, along with recollections, stories behind the recipes, and writing tips. It’s a fun read and would make a unique gift.

Check out my blog, PRAIRIE PURVIEW, on my website, for articles about Texas as well as book reviews on several great reads and authors I’ve discovered.

Lastly, I am digging deep into Texas history for a nonfiction book along the theme of the great cattle drives. I have to admit, sometimes the reading and research is more fun than the writing.

For purchasing information, go to the NATALIE’S BOOKS tab on the home page of my website. In the meantime, happy reading!
