Monday Cuppa--It's Spring

Happy Monday, friends!

Happy first day of Spring!!


I'm such a warm-weather girl, I still can't figure out how I ended up on the east coast, though I dearly love it here. I really believe I was meant to live in Hawaii. Warm temperatures, crystal blue water, white, sandy beaches.... Speaking of beaches, I'm away this week at the beach, finishing up the first draft of book four in my Chesapeake Valor series. Prayers appreciated for God to let the words flow.

How about you? What's your favorite Italian Ice or Snowball flavor? 

Blessings from the beach,

Monday Cuppa--Inside a Writer's Chaos a.k.a Office


Hope you're having a strong coffee morning. 


I always find it so fascinating how vastly different various authors' workspaces can be. I suppose they are unique, just as our stories are. Today, I thought I'd share a glimpse into my writing domain. I'll admit it, I cleaned up a bit for the photos :)

My office is the sunroom off my kitchen. I love that so much light floods in. 

A picture of me and Little Man on an adorable typewriter holder from a dear friend. 

(I think it's super important to keep reminders of what gifts God has given to fill your life with joy. You'll see several below.)

 A sign from my daughter that means the world to me <3

 Gifts from my daughters and cards from dear friends. 

(Yes. We are BIG Guardian of the Galaxy&Star Wars fans. We have a saying in our house, 'It's all wookie'.)

A letter from my all-time favorite mystery writer--Sue Grafton. 

What about you? What does your office space look like? What motivational items do you keep around to keep you inspired? Feel free to comment below or, even better, share a pic!

Have a blessed Monday,

Happy Submerged release day!

Yes. That's right. Today is the official release date of my debut novel Submerged. What does that mean exactly? It means that as of today Submerged is available in stores, online and for download on your e-reader of choice. It's such an exciting day and I'm looking forward to celebrating with my family tonight.






I have been especially blessed to enjoy this debut experience with three very talented authors:

Beth Vogt

Olivia Newport

Katie Ganshert (Katie's debut will officially release May 8th)

Join us on May 15 for our Debutantes’ Story Soiree: a live, worldwide online party to celebrate our debuts and also learn more about Heart of the Bride, a nonprofit ministry devoted to meeting the needs of orphans worldwide.

Also celebrating a release today is fellow Bethany House author Becky Wade. Yay, Becky!  I feel so very blessed to be surrounded by such lovely women.
