Readers, I have some shocking news for you, something that’s never happened before. Take a look at the letter below that I received in the mail, just before the launch of Sins of the Past-my novella with Lynette Eason and Dee Henderson.


Enclosed with the note was a list of profiles of Lynette’s and Dee’s, and my characters. Apparently Anonymous has been stalking our books for quite some time. I can only assume the “clues” Anonymous promised to … Read More

Happy Monday!


Hope you’re week is off to a good start. I’m writing with my black Lab laying beside me on the couch and it got me thinking about Griffin and Winston.

Happy Monday, friends!


I hope you had a wonderful weekend and that you’ve had your creative fuel. I certainly had on both accounts. My hubby and I took a long weekend down on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and enjoyed the blooming flowers, spray of the bay, and sandy beach.

Happy Monday, friends!


I’m thinking of installing one of these in my house. It could come in very handy!

Speaking of houses, my daughter and her husband are getting their first home. It’s an exciting time, but it’s got me started on a home improvement kick. I’m having a blast looking up all the amazing DIY makeovers you can do on Pinterest. My poor husband has no idea what’s coming.

What about you? Do you have a fun before-and-after home … Read More

Happy Monday!


I love connecting over a cuppa. How about you? Do you have a favorite coffee hang out? I do. Mine is Cafe Euro. They must share my love of connection because they are giving a discount if you bring a friend in. How fun! I know where I’m headed.

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Ours was filled with faith, family, friends and great food (which I had nothing to do with making :)). … Read More
