My initial reaction as I began to read Shadow of the Hawk was that the writing was fluid and graceful. The feel, mood and era all reminded me of John Steinbeck and I was hooked from the very start.

The writing is graceful and artistic. It’s fluid and organized in through and action. When I first started reading it I thought of my love for John Steinbeck and Grapes of Wrath. You get that feel of what the Great Depression was like and how families responded to it, and to each other. You feel the desperation and admire the courage and integrity of many of the people of that time.
This story is about a young girl in her teens who considers marrying a man for the…

You've all seen the movie trailer but have you caught...the Lego version????
I eat, sleep, breathe and step all over Legos on a DAILY!! I need to wear slippers to protect my feet from those tiny plastic pieces which have drawn blood more than a couple of times.
Then I came upon this trailer and thought it'd be apropos to share with you all, you know, since I'm a romance author as well as a mom to a bunch of little Lego master builders. =)

I have really been in a funk lately. My mind has been a whirlwind of emotions & thoughts. Ever since my youngest, my baby, turned 4years old I have been giving myself a hard time.

My husband and I are a bit old school. He works outside the home. I do all the household chores, all things clothes and food…Continue

What I absolutely adore most about this experience is how many people said they were going to pay it forward. And the fact that when I logged onto Facebook that night a friend had said that someone paid for her coffee and she…Continue

In November of 2011, a Georgia Appellate Court upheld the decision of a lower court on a case in which a man was nearly held liable for a crash that involved his car but while he was not in it. A thief sped off in his vehicle from his driveway, but not before the man noticed and started out after him in another car. His wife called the police while he chased his stolen car down the road. He…Continue

That moment you realize that everything is going right, all that you need or want is coming into your life right when its suppose to be. Some call this luck, coincidence, or just plan chance, but I call this synchronicity or being in the vortex. This whole week I have been focusing my attention on what I do want. Everything you can imagine has gone wrong and I just didn't let it phase me. I just allowed the Universe to do what it must in order for me to get what I need. I have been reading…Continue

As a parent, I've often found myself doing things that I wouldn't dream of doing on my own free will -- cleaning poop off a wall, catching puke with my bare hands, dining at a germ-infested Chuck E. Cheese. But the hellacious thing I got roped into doing last week on vacation? Well, that should earn me fabulous…
