It’s November. The time for colder weather, colorful turning leaves, college football, pumpkin spice lattes, and being thankful.
Thanksgiving is so rarely depicted in fiction novels. Most authors choose to represent Christmas or Valentine’s Day (especially in the romance genre). This overlooked holiday needed a chance to be brought front and center.
So let’s celebrate! Since Thanksgiving is depicted in my debut novel, AUDREY’S PROMISE, it’s on SALE!!!!
I’ve included a bunch of links to the appropriate sales outlets you prefer. From now until Nov 8th, the e-book is only $0.99!
And when my next novel’s release date is announced, I’ll give away a free e-book or paperback of AUDREY’S PROMISE to a lucky commentator (winner’s choice)!
So get your seriously discounted copy of AUDREY’S PROMISE now before it goes back to full price. Raise your Pumpkin Spice Lattes in celebration of Thanksgiving!
Audrey Allen is poised to become the youngest Texas senator, a position that fits her nickname, The Peacemaker. But she’s unable to make peace with many in her hometown, where memories and grudges run deep from a decade-old tragedy.
Ethan Tanner, an ambitious and tantalizing journalist, joins her at Thanksgiving for an in-depth look at the promising candidate. But he has an agenda of his own that’s not entirely honorable.
Ethan could stir up trouble for her budding career, or awaken the deep passions she’s buried for so long. Will Ethan find that he values love more than getting the story?

Nine years ago, I made the easiest decision (and most important) of my life.
I said “I do” to Bryan.
Well, actually I made the decision to marry him long before then, but it was official on Sept 17th.
This is yet another time for me to brag, folks. Fair warning.
It really was an easy decision. I knew Bryan was the only one for me. The best choice I could ever make. The best father I could ever ask for for our children.
Nine years later, it’s incredible everything we’ve gone through, and the love between us is infinitely stronger than on our wedding day. Didn’t think that was possible on that hot day in September all those years ago, but it’s true.
I can honestly say we’ve never had a major fight. Not one. Disagreements, sure. Tested each other’s patience, of course. But never a fight.
Respect is the foundation of our relationship, which is why I think we’ve never really fought. I value his opinion. He values mine. He tells me he’s proud of me, and I remind him every day how much I love him. He supports me even when I’m crazy, and tells me I’m beautiful even when I’m sick. He’s the one I go to when I don’t know what to do.
My Happy Place… with Bryan
He’s my happy place.
Here’s to my love. My inspiration. My boo:
Where does the time go? You’ve made my life so rich with love, so warm, and more than I could have ever hoped for.
I love you, Bryan. Happy Anniversary.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a blog, that I thought I should reopen it with BIG NEWS!
Ladies and gents, this has been an incredible two weeks, and I just can’t contain myself!
First and foremost, my son Liam was born on Tuesday, March 4th at 8:25am. Almost 2 full weeks early, completely healthy and with the biggest appetite I’ve ever seen. My oldest son, Caden, is infatuated with being a big brother. Maybe because they look IDENTICAL! Pictures will come soon.
The other piece of incredible news (besides giving up sleep for Lent), is I sold my next manuscript to The Wild Rose Press!

Prince of Solana is the first book in my romantic suspense trilogy, Royals of Solana. No release date yet, but I’m hoping for early fall 2014. It all depends on how fast I can get these edits done with a newborn in the house!
I’m so overloaded with love and joy, and it’s not from pain meds. Here’s to the beginning of an incredible 2014!!!!
Commence “Because I’m Happy” by Pharrell Williams!
