Colleen was born and raised on the central coast of California. She is the mother of two adult children and she’s been a wife longer than she hasn’t. She’s a cancer survivor and speaks publicly about her family and their journey.
With the experiences of her childhood in the beautiful place she has lived along with her imagination, The Winter Oak Series was born in Colleen at a very young age and put on paper to remind the ones she loves that through them, everything is possible
Clover Lawless is not your average 12 year old girl. She is adventurous, inquisitive and with an unearned wisdom buried deep inside her. She doesn't buy in to any of the childhood fantasies and fairy tales. As far as Clover is concerned, "seeing is believing". Every day after school, Clover and her father Emmett drive up to Winter Oak where they tend to the horses that live there. Clover has always felt a connection to Winter Oak but never really understood why.
Winter Oak has a tragic past that none of the adults in the town will discuss with the children, but Clover is determined to find out what happened even if it challenges everything she has always known to be true.
Her adventurous streak and inquisitive nature get her the answers she seeks but it is not what she was expecting. What she finds is the mystery of her lineage intertwined with a history she could have only dreamed of, sending Clover to embark on the greatest adventure of her life. But, what does this mean for her future?BUY BOOK
