What’s next for me?
My latest contemporary romance Preserving Liberty is set to release later this year. If you enjoy American history, suspense, and a lot of romance this book is for you!
Liberty Carmichael, a historic preservation specialist at the Library of Congress–and the president’s daughter–must rely on undercover FBI agent Cole Harding to save important pieces of American history from falling into the wrong hands. But their hearts will pay the ultimate price.
What else am I working on?
My publisher, Pelican Book Group, has offered a contract for book two of my Cadence of Acadia series! Though the title is still a work in progress, I can tell you this Stone Harbor, Maine, romance involves a blueberry farmer and a bakery owner. This standalone novel will also give readers another glimpse of Huck and Arianne from book one.
Why I Write…
Books aren’t material objects to me–they’re a passion. My love for the written word began before I could read. As a child, I’d surround myself with stacks of books and pretend I was either the librarian or the patron, looking for that special book guaranteed to whisk me away to another time and place. On a rainy summer day, I could be found in my bedroom with my Casio radio and a blank cassette tape, recording audio books for my own enjoyment.
As I grew older, I began to dream of seeing my own books in print. Time passed as I studied the craft of writing. I met the hero of my life’s story, started a career, and had three energetic–and wonderful–boys. Though I set my dream aside, it never died. Shortly after my third son was born, God told me it was time to unearth that dream, blow off the dust, and use it for Him.
My husband and I are very nostalgic. We prefer antiques and odds-and-ends over anything modern, and we love the stories and lessons that can be learned from the past. That’s why I write Modern-Vintage Romance–a contemporary setting with raw, modern characters and threads of nostalgia. Why not have the best of both worlds? I love to hear from readers.
