Happy Valentines Day!

Valentines heart I’m busy getting Gloria’s Song readied for a print version. I dedicated Gloria’s Song to my mother and she doesn’t read eBooks. I would really like her to read it!

I am also starting on my next story for my publisher at Harlequin.

I have a new giveaway this week where I am joining fifty other authors. If you are interested in in the chance to win a Kindle Fire and MANY books, please take a  look HERE.

The 2016 Write Touch Readers Award!

I am thrilled to let you know that my novel,

The Gunslinger and the Heiress


in the historical category for the

Write Touch Readers Award!

This is my first “sweet & clean” book and is a personal favorite. (Am I allowed to say that among my books?) This award by the Wisconsin Chapter of RWA gives great validation to that fact that there is definitely room for this type of romance in the publishing market of today. It makes me so happy!

Welcome to the

Turkey Trot Blog Hop!

Two chances to win!

This is the first blog hop that I’ve ever participated in so I hope that all the people involved have a fun time with it. The more you comment on this and the other blogs between today and the 24th, the more chance you have to win the grand prize of a $50 Amazon Gift Card! You will also be entered into a drawing for a signed copy of my newest release ~

Christmas Kiss from the Sheriff


But this post isn’t about Christmas (despite my book’s title!) this is about


The more seasoned I get (I like that better than the word “older,”) the more gratitude I feel for my blessings. My father has often said ~ “I’ve dodged a few bullets and been very lucky.” He says this even though he has had some very rough spots in life — to the point that his being here is nothing short of miraculous. I love that his attitude is gratitude in spite of those rough spots. It is my desire to keep hold of that outlook on life too.

Today I am grateful for my roots–the unconditional love and the example of my mother and father and grandparents. I can feel the inner strength it has given me and I can see it in my sister and brothers.

To enter the contest for a signed copy of my new release, Christmas Kiss from the Sheriff, and to be entered into the drawing for the grand prize ~ simply answer the question:

What are you grateful for?

Thanksgiving turkey

And may you be the recipient of many small sigkindnesses and blessings this Thanksgiving holiday!
