Works in Progress

I love writing sensual contemporary western romance. To write a series is even better. It’s so much fun to give a secondary character from a book, their own story.

What’s Coming?


Christmas Novella 

This is different from the other books I write. For example, it’s shorter. It isn’t a western romance. However, I had to give my hero horses! It takes place in Northern Michigan, my home state, and where, as a child, I used to spend time with my grandmother, an aunt and uncle, and cousins. Some of my cousins still live there.


Brand-New Series

Coming November 2019. Book #1. Second Chance Romance. See the beginnings of the book page HERE.

Details about this new book is under wraps for now, but it’s due out November 2019. However, I can say it’s a collaboration with other authors. It’s not a bundle or an anthology. Like my other books, this one is a sensual contemporary western romance. Oh, by the way, our hero has four siblings. This is a new series in the making!

UPDATE: This book is Finished! I have a blurb. Cover is finished and SMOKIN’! The image you see below is not the cover but a little teaser.

Book #5 in the Double Dutch Ranch Series: Love at First Sight

Judy Carlson’s book is coming in 2019. The idea for this book had my muse scrambling, and fans of my Double Dutch Ranch Series and the Spin Off Series wanted to see it happen. Is it time for Judy Carlson to take on a serious relationship? Even I don’t know yet if she will. If so, is the lucky man Martyn Banes, her long-time beau? A fine new gentleman made his appearance in Lassoing the last Dance. He was, indeed, impressed with Judy. However, someone else lurks in the background with a secret admiration.

Butwestern romance, mary j mccoy dressel, double dutch ranch series: Love at First sight what about Jase, Tristan, and Dane? Are they ready for a stepfather? Oh, they will let you know in this upcoming novel with multiple POVs because you know, the Carlson Cowboys will not sit quiet when a man sweeps their mom off her feet. Hmm… The plot thickens.

Book #6 Double Dutch Ranch Series: Love at First Sight 

This is an “if” but a possibility and most likely not for 2019. This guy floats in and out of my mind with a backstory he wants me to explore. He who? He makes an appearance or is mentioned in all the books, beginning with Cowboy Boss and his Destiny and carries over to the spin off series. Any guesses? If you guessed Rob Adams, you’re right. He has a heart-wrenching backstory.


Oh, by the way. The boxed set and the individual books have brand-new covers!

Will there be a fourth book in this series? I’m glad you asked, but I don’t have an answer. Some readers want to see what comes next. However, the last book wrapped-up everything just in case it was the last book in the series. If you’d like to see more, contact me to let me know you want the series to continue. Readers will help me decide if the Bull Rider Series has run its course. Velia and Caulder are still one of my favorite couples. I’ve considered writing a novella or two or more for this series, especially for the fans of this series.
