I knew that C.S. Lewis and I had more in common than our Christianity when he said, "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me." Welcome to a celebration of faith, tea, and the written word. I'm always engaged in a book, and whether it's one I'm reading or one of the inspirational historical romances I write, there's always a cup of tea close by. Join me in a cup as we chat about faith, our favorite books and the exciting places our reading and writing adventures take us.

Spring Break!

Happy Easter! Yes, I know the day itself has passed, but Easter is a season, celebrated until Pentecost. Rejoice in the fact that Christ is risen! Alleluia!

My kids were off school last week, which means we were pretty busy. As a result, I'm going to be working this week. Because...

on May 1, in just over three weeks:

  • The Most Eligible Bachelor Collection releases
  • The manuscript For a Song, for The Cowboy's Bride Collection, is due.
And boy, am I excited.

I'm writing. I'm preparing a Prize Package to celebrate my Bachelor novella, Love's Reward. I'm being interviewed and featured on some blogs in May (info to come, and they include giveaways so you'll want to check them out!).

Meanwhile, Spring has sprung at my house. I've planted tomatoes, zucchini, and a bunch of herbs. Mourning doves are nesting in my "fruit salad" tree (elba peach, grafted with Santa Rosa plums and apricots--yum), and butterflies have found good nectar in the blossoming trees in my yard.

Good things are growing. God's given me some good work. What a happy place to be. I pray you feel the same about spring blooming around you and the tasks on your plate.

Next Monday, there will be a visit with author Jennifer Uhlarik when she shares her Ten Things and a giveaway! Hope to see you then!
