Nice Weather...Good Times

Wow!! Summer is coming and will be gone before I know it. I had a really fun couple of weeks. I got to go to an EMS baseball game and hang out with friends which was a blast. There's nothing like good baseball, where we won in the 11th inning, beer and hotdogs. I also had a fun game of poker, where I got my butt kicked, but that was okay, cause I laughed so hard that night, my stomach hurt.
Been home a lot doing edits for "Her hometown hero" which is always difficult to do when it's beautiful out and I'd rather be in a water war with the kids, but I'm surviving it. I just bring my computer outside, blast the country tunes, and work until the sun goes down and beyond. It's looking to be a beautiful summer, and I can't wait for the concerts to begin!! I've decided that summer should just last for at least 6 months cause it makes me so dang happy. Hope you all have great vacation plans. I would love to hear about them!!

Time Flies...

Wow!! I can't believe summer is already here. Phoenix has finished up her first year at University of Oregon and has officially moved back home for the summer, though I think I'll see her less now because she has taken a love of flying and will be living at the airport. John is almost done with his Junior year of high school, so Senior year hear we come!! That will be an adventure. I have lots of family and friends plans this summer, including camping, water and nerf gun wars, game nights, bbq's, and bonfires. I love the summer. Of course, there will be much lake activity. I love my job because I can write while sitting at a picnic table, and hearing the sounds of my nephew and honorary nieces laughing. I am blessed with a great family and great friends, and summer will come and go in the blink of an eye.

 There are exciting things coming in the bookworld, and I can't wait to get the new series out and wrap up the Andersons though I will miss Joseph. I am sure he'll keep popping up because you all know what a meddler he is.

 I hope you all have safe and happy travels and I can't wait to see all the pics you all post. It's so much fun to see so many smiles!!

            It's almost summer time and I always get excited this time of year because it means so much more of outdoor activities. When you live in Oregon and it rains all the time, it's exciting to actually get outside and feel the sun shining down again. I have so much to be thankful for. I have my new contract with Pocket Books, and my first book with them will be hitting shelves on October 28th!! Don't forget to pre-order your copy of "Baby it's Cold Outside".

I also have some new books up for pre-order, and I'm working on finishing the Anderson series. I don't know what the next adventures are going to be but I'm working on a New Adult series that has me in tears sometimes as I'm writing it.

I have a new niece who was born a couple days ago and she is the most beautiful baby in the universe. She may get just a tiny bit spoiled. My daughter is almost finished with her first year of college and it will be so nice to have her home for the summer. My son is finishing his Junior year of high school so next year plans to be a busy one!! I love busy though. It makes the long winter nights much more entertaining.

I loved RT this year, and got to meet so many wonderful people. I am really looking forward to RWA in Texas. Never been there before and I am determined to ride a mechanical bull. Let's see if I can last 8 seconds!! Thanks as always for all your continued support. You make me love my job!! I love you all!!!
