Crazy in the Heart: A Zany, Inspirational, Small Town Romantic Comedy (Calpernica Book 1)


A guy, a girl, a house and a whole lot of trouble..
Brett Jacobson is a cursed man. He's spent years trying to outrun his past, only to find himself stranded in a sleepy Midwest town that's crazier than he is. Then there's the beautiful, fiery woman who needs his help as much as she needs his love. That is, if his bad luck doesn't rub off on her first...

A cop, a convict and a carpenter...
Erica Waters has a man problem. Times three. Plus the little one she's trying to raise by herself with the help of her quirky sisters in a ramshackle farmhouse. Home repairs, ex-boyfriends and acts of God only seem to drive her closer to the handy, heavenly stranger she inadvertently plucked off the side of the road in a moment of weakness...

Inspired by the Book of Job and written in the zany tradition of Raising Arizona and O Brother Where Art Thou, Crazy in the Heart is a romantic comedy about broken people, broken churches, restoration and forgiveness, set in the fictional, rural town of Calpernica, Illinois.

I'm a writer, veteran and mother of five. I live in a 100 year old farmhouse in rural Illinois, where I enjoy coming up with outrageous stories and telling them to whoever will listen, including my chickens.

I come from a family of writers and have a background in theater and broadcasting. I have a lifelong passion for words. My favorite authors include my mother, Kathleen Kirkwood, followed closely by Oscar Wilde and William Shakespeare. I'm also a big fan of God's many masterpieces, especially the Bible, lilacs, and the cacao bean.

I'm currently working on two romantic comedy series:

Calpernica is a romantic comedy series set in a small Midwest town over the first half of the 21st century. Book 1, Crazy in the Heart, was published in May. Book 2, Wilde in the Heart, will be out on April Fool's Day, 2017.

Black Kat is a dark romantic comedy and urban fantasy/fantasy series with superheroes. The prequel, Unlucky Charm, is now out. The next two books will be out in 2017.
