news and views
First, some news about me and my writing.
I got a decent review at Dear Author. If you want to read it yourself, follow this link:
But for those of you who don’t want to bother, I’ll give a few highlights. “It’s hard to read the blurb for “Road to Love” without mentally comparing it to the Mother of All Depression Era-Widow-Marries-Ex-Con-Hero novels but I think your book will stand on its own merits. Initially upon reading the blurb I thought, “I’ve read this before. I’ve seen it done excellently before. What else is there to write about this plot?” The answer is: a lot….This is a faith based romance and despite your stated intentions not to preach at your readers, I still wondered how I would feel about reading a “Steeple Hill Love Inspired Historical.” I think you manage to tell a story of two people who have strong faith without turning the story into a pulpit. …I didn’t feel the story was too platonic without any bedroom scenes nor did I miss them. I did feel a connection between Kate and Hatcher. One that I’m certain will be fulfilled. ”
Second news item: Darcy’s Inheritance has finaled in a contest–THE BEACON by First Coast Romance Writers. I am honored to have it do this well.
Another news item–I finally went out and bought myself a good digital camera. Now I can show you my ‘views’.
Yes, that’s two geese on top of the barn. Don’t ask why. I don’t know. That’s my bistro set where I like to sit and work when the weather is nice and that’s my May Day tree. I wish I could give you a sample of the scent. There’s nothing better. IMHO. Here have a closer look. Maybe you CAN smell it. 🙂

Whatever your news and views, I trust you are enjoying a lovely spring.
