Dear Reader,

The holiday season is upon us! I got a head start on Christmas with this table setting at a dinner party I held on Veteran’s Day. Ended up spending the evening with seven great friends and their spouses or partners whom I met : in a writing critique group, sweep rowing, at a football game, playing tennis, as my “life coach”, at a Halloween party, and at my dinner party. I love entertaining and always listen carefully, because I never know where the idea for my next novel will come from.

eBook Christmas Story!

BitterCreekChristmas_120I’ve been wanting to write a Christmas story featuring Bitter Creek characters for quite a while, and this is the year I’ve finally done it! Watch for “A Bitter Creek Christmas,” available as an eBook around December 1. I’ll be in touch to let you know the exact date it will be available.

The October winner of an autographed copy of the corrected galleys for MONTANA BRIDE along with an autographed copy of the sale cover of the book was Barbara W. from Valparaiso, Florida. Here’s a photo of me putting the galleys and autographed cover into the mail to her. This month the drawing is for an autographed copy of SISTERS FOUND, a Hawk’s Way book being reissued on November 26th. Be sure and enter! Good luck!

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving with friends and family!
