The novel, available from Booktrope Books, focuses on 16-year-old Emme Belrose who shares her friends’ abilities to move their spirits into animal bodies. “Spirit Warrior” is suspenseful, romantic and awash in Native American magic.

Austin State University in Nacogdoches; her Master of Science in Nursing is from the University of Texas Medical Branch-Galveston and her Ph.D. in Nursing was earned at the University of Texas at Tyler.

Born in South Dakota and raised in the vastness and beauty of Montana on a farm, Connor moved to Texas to attend college. When not nursing people back to health she can be found writing stories that have occupied her mind for so many years, or traveling with her best friends, riding bikes across the Golden Gate Bridge or exploring botanical gardens.

She is the proud mother of a champion triathlete, two aging dogs and one grand-cat. Connor has confessed to her coffee addiction and swears that her two hour coffee crawl while on vacation in Seattle –was the best two hours of her life.
