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.

Happy Birthday, Inkwell Inspirations!

Six years! Wahoo!

We're celebrating the anniversary of our group blog today with a giveaway of 2 $25 Amazon cards.

Ooh! Amazon cards!

Inkwell is the reason I started this blog. I was invited to participate, wanted to desperately, but feared I'd mess up since I had no idea how to blog. That's why I started my own: to practice.

But that's another story. In six years, these women have encouraged, pushed, comforted, mourned with, prayed for, and loved one another. I love them, too!

Front row, yours truly and Debra Marvin, holding a photo of CJ Chase.

Here we all were at the ACFW conference in Indianapolis, 2013. Some of us are in costume for the genre dinner. Some of us are present only on paper photos. But this is as close as we've ever come to a group photo!

We're also celebrating Austen in Austin, coming from WhiteFire in January, which started as an Inkwell group project. Retelling Jane Austen novels, set in historical Austin, Texas, was a delight to put together. With its sale, too, each and every member of Inkwell Inspirations is now a contracted author!

A dream come true!
