Welcome, Sweet Friend!

Thanks for stopping by. Come on in and make yourself right at home next to the fireplace. Join me for a virtual hot chai tea latte and let’s catch up!

Whew, seems like we just flipped the calendar to 2017. What happened?? Already winter’s barged through NC, plummeting temps into the thirties at night, but that’s okay by me. After living in Florida for a gazillion years, where we could stow all our winter gear combined into one dresser drawer, I usually can’t wait to pull out the sweaters and scarves. I have so many that hubby customized a special hanger in our closet for my scarves. Lol. What’s one of your favorite aspects of winter?

My writing took a back seat in 2017 to these two rascals. And, no, they don’t cooperate like this every day. I wish!

Fully Involved, the first book in the Merriville Firefighter Heroes series, finally hit the Amazon shelf in November. What do you think of the cover? It’s a departure from my usual hero/heroine centric covers.

Expect to see His Valentine Promise soon after the New Year as part of the Cooking Up Kisses 2018 Valentine’s anthology featuring Robin Bayne, Marianne Evans, Dora Hiers, Delia Latham, Mary Manners and Zoe McCarthy. I’m thrilled and honored to be included with these wonderful authors.

What’s up next? I’m not entirely sure. I planned to write three longer books spinning off His Valentine Promise, a continuation of the Cider Lake series, all stand-alones. But lately, I’m leaning toward writing and reading shorter books, so we’ll see how that goes. What page count do you prefer to read?

And you know that I’ll write the second and third books in the Merriville Firefighter Heroes series. How can I not write about sweet and hunky fire heroes when I’m married to one? ❤

That’s it for me. Please know that you, dear reader, are one of my greatest blessings! It warms my heart to open your sweet, encouraging emails and to hop on Goodreads or Amazon and read your kind reviews, so keep them coming! You all are awesome!!

Thanks for hanging out with me for a few minutes. I hope you’ll come back often. Wishing you the most joyous of holidays and a blessed 2018!

With all my love,
