Hey, folks! I just wanted to let you know that… the issue with my newsletter sign up has been fixed. I hope. I couldn’t figure out how to fix the issue, and it wasn’t showing up in any troubleshooting lists, so I switched providers. I’ve actually been wanting to do that for a long time, but none of the options I wanted were in my price range–until now. So when I found out this provider was available, I raced off to switch, and if you already signed up, you’re probably going to have to confirm you really want to hear from me. Again. Or somethingRead More →

…What interesting, unexpected thing do you do now that six months ago you never dreamed you’d ever do? And by calculating insulin, I mean I had to take a 22 day period, subtract the three highest amounts, add the rest together, and divide by 19. Then took another 22 day period, subtracted the three lowest, added the rest together, divided by 19, and compared the two numbers. What for? Well, Buddy’s insulin was running way too low by the end of each month, but to increase his prescription, we had to tell the nurse practitioner just how much insulin he was using/needing each day. We’dRead More →

I grew up on a diet of Christian historical fiction, westerns, classics, and just about anything else I could get my hands on. Particular favorites were Janette Oke, Lori Wick, Louis L’Amour, Alistair MacLean, Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, L.M. Montgomery, Francena H. Arnold, Mary Grant Bruce, and Grace Livingston Hill. As an older teen I branched out and read Linda Chaikin, Brock and Bodie Thoene, Hilda Stahl, and Francine Rivers. As as adult, I added in Georgette Heyer and Josephine Tey. There are probably more, but those are the ones I can recall off the top of my head. One thing they all have inRead More →

I was browsing through a group I follow on Facebook last night and came across a post that looked fun. It was a simple “vote for your favorite author” type thing. The trouble though, was that it started out with something like 25 options, but by the time other readers had finished adding their favorites, the list had grown to around 100. More readers wanted to add more authors, but they’d met the poll limit and were no longer able to add any more names. So they were listing names in the comments. It was fun to see which authors other readers liked, but alsoRead More →

I am here now to announce that… Your Heart For Mine, a novella set in the Taking Chances universe, will be releasing tomorrow, May 1st! I’m really excited about this one. Mostly because I love, love, love the cover. Isn’t it gorgeous? Josh went above and beyond my expectations, and I think I’m more excited about the cover than the story! I think—at least, I hope—you’ll enjoy the story as well, but the cover… 🥰 My aim is to make the ebook FREE on all platforms, but I’ve never done this before and I’m not exactly sure how soon that will happen. We set the processRead More →
