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.

Last week I posted the cover reveal for my February release. Today I have something else exciting to share!

I sold a novel to Barbour Publishing!
My Heart Belongs in Ruby City, Idaho: Rebecca's Plight, a mail-order bride mix-up story, will be released in May, 2017, the third book in a new series.

Owyhee Mountains outside Silver City:
The Owyhee Mountains, where the story is set.
Here's the blurb:

Is it possible to marry the wrong man? Rebecca Rice was looking forward to a quiet life and a full stomach by becoming mail-order bride to her shopkeeper intended, Mr. Fordham—until the justice of the peace calls him Thaddeus, not Theodore, proceeded by the title Deputy. Rebecca would never marry a lawman like her father, so an annulment seems in order—and fast, since Rebecca’s true intended is impatient to claim her as his own. But when the legalities take longer than expected, Rebecca wonders if Tad Fordham wasn’t the right husband for her all along. . . .

In May, I'll throw a big party with giveaways and fun! Sign up for my newsletter (click button on the right) for another chance to win!
