Come to the Jaunty Quills!

The Sisterhood of the Jaunty Quills were kind enough to invite me over to talk about gratitude and why I chose my favorite holiday in Once Upon a Thanksgiving. Drop by for a chance to talk about what makes you grateful, and to win a $10 Amazon gift card!

Writing, Proofing, Moving

| September 13, 2016

Today I’m proofing my novella for A Heartwarming Holiday for the last time. After this, I won’t be touching it again–always an anxious time for a writer. Like sending your children to school on the first day. Did you make them wear something their friends won’t like? Will their lunch be sitting in the bag, […]

September 11

Like everyone else alive on that day in our country–and all over the world–I remember exactly how I saw it. My office was in the front of our house.

Sunday Morning

| September 4, 2016

For the first time since probably April, I walked in our neighborhood last night. We’ve had around 80 days of 90-plus temps. That’s almost three months of hellish heat in one year. Help meeeeeeee! Last night, the temps were in the lower 80s, and it felt like fall. It wasn’t, and by the time I got home, […]
