You Gotta Have Heart


The USA has been hard hit this year with hurricanes and devastating fires in the west. People are hurting from Houston to Florida to 
Puerto Rico to California. 

But how is the best way to help others when you don't live near the area?


After Harvey attacked Houston, the city was inundated with 'stuff', and many things they couldn't use. Although people gave out of their hearts, what they sent did not always match the need.

The easiest way to give is online to any number of charities. Be careful though because some only give a small portion of your $ to the need while using the bulk to pay their costs.

I give through the Salvation Army and Samaritan's Purse.

Follow your heart and give to help others. 
It's the way of the heart.


Friday Night at the Bookshelf!

Introducing Friday Night at the Bookshelf

You've worked hard all week. Maybe you're single, or maybe hubs is worn out and snoring, but you're not tired. And of course there is nothing on the hundreds of channels you've surfed. But you're hungry for a good story. Characters you can get to know and root for.

So, microwave your popcorn, open the coke can, and fluff up the pillows.  Each Friday night
I'll showcase 2 different books. One of mine and one from another author. 

It's going to be a grab bag. Some new features, and some dollar shows er, books.

So let's get this show on the way. It's a Double Feature
All the books are clean and wholesome
Premiere tonight - The Judge's Bride

He's lonely, She's desperate. (Did I tell you she has 10 children? No, well she didn't tell him either.)

Rachel held the letter in her hand as she watched the banker come up the lane. He was taking the farm. Wasn't it enough she'd been widowed 2 years ago. Worse, good meaning townspeople wanted her to disperse her ten children to families who needed them. She had to keep her family together. The letter from the judge in Montana. Her only hope of keeping her family together was to go west to Montana as a mail order bride.
Judge Solomon Taggart groaned at having to referee a dispute between the two feuding families. That even their children were at each other made him doubt the wisdom of sending that letter to the widow in Minnesota. She had children. She didn't say how many, and he hadn't asked. He grabbed his rifle and swung up in the saddle, praying there'd be no bloodshed. And then he prayed he'd been wise to send that letter.

Double Feature
Next up is a sweet romance by my friend Jackie Castle. You'll love this heartwarming romance set in the charming town of Madison Creek, Michigan. You'll find transplanted Texan Haley and a cast of characters that will have you rooting for them.

Sun Kisses  by Jackie Castle

History drew them together and then threatened to tear them apart.

Despite her attempt to portray a woman in control, Karen Borgman’s life is a mess. Living with an uncaring, unfaithful husband had been bad enough, but his death sent her life into a humiliating tailspin. Only her fight to revive the small town of Madison Creek, and sharing its deep history with tourist kept her sane.

When history professor, Kelvin Fairbanks, sailed into her life, Karen’s hope of a life with a good man is ignited. What could go wrong?
But when her heart’s desire, a desire she could never attain on her own, is dropped on her doorstep, her reputation and relationship with Kelvin are threatened.

Another heartwarming story from Madison Creek Bed and Breakfast and the characters you’ve grown to love.

Welcome to Madison Creek Where Northern Hospitality Meets Southern Comfort

She was waiting for Mr. Right, and he was so wrong.

Cait inherits Great Aunt Trudy's house. Did I tell you her house might be a money pit. Oh, yeah, then there are those cats. Seems Aunt Trudy was the resident cat lady.  : )

Ellen's Lesson ~ you'll love this story.

Some stories are just fun to write! And this was one of them. Ellen's Lesson is available for Preorder.

Ellen's Lesson

She's a blond, blue-eyed beauty. (Well, not exactly.) He's a handsome, prosperous gentleman from a good family. (Yeah, not so much.) With their letters at odds, what will Tyler and Ellen do when they meet and discover the truth? It's a mail order bride mess.

Ellen Barker feared her life was destined for the lonely outcome of a spinster school teacher. An advertisement in the paper asking for women to go to Colorado as mail order brides caught her attention. A few letters later, she was betrothed to Tyler Fletcher. A handsome upstanding citizen of Jubilee Springs.

Tyler Fletcher needed to be married before he was twenty-eight. That's what his pappy had told him. That the mine owners sent off for some mail order brides for the miners was perfect timing. He got hold of one. The perfect lady for him. Pretty, blond and blue-eyed. A woman of high society.

At least that is what his partner, Nels, told him. Once Tyler had some time, he was going to have to learn to read and write.

From the moment Ellen met Tyler, she knew she'd disappointed him, and it wasn't as if he'd been the prize she was expecting either. He didn't want her. She would be left alone again. Maybe ...

I hope you enjoy this story. I know I had fun writing it. Rachel and her children show up in Montana in answer to Judge Solomon Taggart's letter for a mail order bride.

Did I tell you how many children Rachel has?  The judge knows she has some, but not how many. What a surprise.

Then there is that feud in the valley. The Murphys and Howards don't get along at all. No one remembers why, but they set the whole valley and little town of Shirleyville on edge.

Welcome Spring

Ahhhh, Spring is here!
Doesn't it feel wonderful? I love it when the warmer temperatures welcome me outside. Oh, to sit under a tree or in the sun and read a good book. Or just enjoy the birds singing, flowers blooming, and the great outdoors.

I do love the change in seasons. But I am beginning to really appreciate the warm mornings. Having to take my dog out in the mornings may have something to do with that. : )

Spring is such a special time. When trees who looked dead, suddenly spring to life. You can almost watch the leaves emerge they pop out so quickly.

And the colors. The tender spring greens to the darker shades. Who would even be able to describe the varieties of green.

Hope you enjoy the spring and get out and smell the roses.

Cover Reveal in an Upside Down Life

Here's the cover for my next book, The Judge's Bride. It should be out by the end of the month. Only five months late.

Well, I just didn't figure on the double-bypass heart surgery in October. Life is that way isn't it? And that's the one thing I really took away from that ordeal.
The Sovereignty of the Lord.

James 4:15 NASB
Instead, you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that."

What do I know? I had no idea I wouldn't be able to write book 1. Book 2 was already on deadline and out in January. Ahead of book 1.  Well, that is a crazy way to do things, but life can be that crazy. It took me several months to regain my strength and writing brain. I didn't count on that either.

And as I write these stories, I find my characters dealing with unforeseen problems or roadblocks that they must work through.

Such is life. Life in all its crazy twists and turns that can blindside you and leave you wondering just how do you explain book 2 is out before book 1.  Fortunately, they are stand alone books in a series connected by place and characters.

I love life! I love it that the Lord walks with  me and guides me in all those turns. That He is the surety in an unsure world. That He gave me an awesome husband to walk alongside and help  me.

So, get ready friends. Book 1 is about to come out. I'm almost to the end an enjoying these characters and their story. Stay tuned and Lord willing, The Judge's Bride will be out the end of March.

It's a Dandy Day

I love dandelions.  Such a fun name that sets my imagination free to see lions with fluffy yellow manes.

If your weather is nice, go outside and see if you can't find some of these dandies.

And while you're at it, grab a good book and read. I love Spring when the weather warms up and happy breezes brush by you to say "Hi"

Enjoy the day.  


March FUN ~ Enjoy

Where have I been?  I can't believe I have been away from my blog for such a long time. But then, a lot has happened.  Had an awesome vacation in Sept. ~ Planes, Trains and Automobile. Flew to San Francisco, took a train to Denver, and then drove to Yellowstone National Park and up into Montana. What a wonderful trip for my husband and I.  THEN ~ hear the troubling music ~ I  had double bypass surgery. That threw me for a loop and I am just now getting back to full steam. I've taken a licking but I'm still ticking and not through living.  I love life and my family and friends. God is good.

SO ~ What is my March FUN?  Two freebies this weekend.

Goldie's Pick is my newest release. (Although she was included in a collection last year. No April Fools under the title of April Fool's Date.)

A sweet contemporary romance novella you'll enjoy.

"I'm the last of my college roommates to be married." Elle spoke to the empty hallway. She couldn't believe she was once again a bridesmaid. Was she going to have to choose between settling for Mr. Good-Enough and being alone? Maybe she just needed to adopt a dog.
Nick was happy with his life. He had his first real client in his architect firm and things were going well. No, he was't married. He didn't need a wife at this time in his life. He was too busy.
