Why are some of us so compelled to write? Does anyone know? We string words together, arranging them just so. Spacing, positioning, assembling them in the right order to say what we need them to say and make readers feel what we want them to feel.

I completed six full length novels before my next one, number seven, was contracted and published. That’s a fifteen percent success rate going in. Then I did go back to rewrite one of the original six that eventually sold, and added four more new ones that were published as well.

In that genre, my success to failure ratio is about seventy-five percent. Same for human interest/personal essay articles submitted, three for four.  That’s not counting the stories and essays that were accepted and paid for but never published. Continue reading »

It happens fast, doesn’t it? Summer ends, school starts, Halloween hits and – boom – before we know it we fall into the holiday season.

Parties, shopping, decorating, shopping, tree lighting ceremonies, shopping, family dinners, followed by shopping.

In our family, the transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas isn’t quite as smooth as it could be. In our family, which includes me, my husband, our four children, three in-law children and four grandchildren, we have six birthdays to celebrate before we can fully break out the holiday cheer.

A Three Book Anthology

A twenty year high school reunion changes the lives of former classmates and leads to unexpected futures.

Three Strikes Thursday
Barry Carlson, a pro baseball success, could have any woman he wanted. Except one. Twenty years before, Barry won Amanda Marsh’s love, only to crush her heart. He’s returned to Serendipity, determined to win her back. Recently divorced, Amanda is happy—until Barry slides back into her life. Can they put aside old wounds and new misunderstandings to find a forever love?

Two On Tuesday
Blane Weston’s construction company needs the venture capital Matt Durand has. With his reputation for hostile takeovers, she wants no part of him. Mixing business with pleasure, she’s off to Serendipity to hook up with a former flame. Not used to being denied, Matt follows. How can Blane enjoy a journey to her past when Matt is determined to dictate her future?

One Fateful Friday
His high school reunion in Serendipity over, hospital CEO Jake Holbrook regrets his single state. When a special woman from his past tumbles back into his life—and his bed—he’s determined to keep her there. Family practitioner Bethany Thomas avoids an entanglement with her new boss, but unknowingly betrays him. As the holidays approach, can they overcome a lack of trust to find their Christmas miracle?
