New Release - just in time for Halloween

Sweet romance meets light paranormal in this Halloween story of second chances.


Nick Marshall has a hole in his soul, and Jacqueline must help him find the missing piece. Their teenage history in the gossipy town of Serendipity compounds the situation, as Jacqueline’s visit to help her injured mother (Reba Markland, EMILY'S DREAMS) turns into something more.

The little town hasn’t changed much--the gossip tree still has branches and roots everywhere, most folks remember the town’s past better than they can imagine its future, and the autumn colors are more beautiful than anywhere she’s traveled in the years since she left.

Jacqueline's gift is needed here, but she won’t risk her heart, or put her family in the spotlight, by staying.

A PIECE OF HER SOUL is #7 in the Serendipity, Indiana series, but can also be read as a stand-alone.

#simplify Autumn Decor



I'm a minimalist.

My holiday decor for autumn is to open the curtains and look at the beautiful colors on the trees.

When I take my morning walks, I kick the dry leaves as I go, in gratitude for this, my favorite season of the year.

Simple pleasures. I'm so grateful!

Love, Christmas

Some of my friends (and their friends) put this Christmas bundle together. Isn't it pretty? My understanding is that the romances are a variety of heat levels.

You might be from a small town if...


...you give directions using landmarks no longer in existence.

Example: "It's right across from where the drive-in theater used to be."

Don't look for me online today...

My writer self up against a crushing deadline--my favorite kind!

My minimalist self is trying to figure out what to do with a television set (the old style, not flat-panel). For interesting reading about life without TV, here's a link to the Miss Minimalist blog.The space where the TV currently sits will become book storage. Sounds perfect to me!

The front of my brain is working on deadline, but the back of my brain is pondering this appliance re-homing issue. We like to keep all parts engaged when possible.

Have a great day!
