Having grown up in a small town, that’s where my heart takes me—to those quirky small towns where everybody knows everybody...and all their business, for better or worse. And I love, love, love to write series because I hate saying goodbye to old friends.
Summer, of course, with those wonderful evenings full of fireflies, laughing children at play outdoors, and lots of sweet tea.
The release of my newest book, I've Got You, Babe! This is number two in the Must Love Babies series. I'm hard at work on the next book, For Baby and Me , Gaven's story.
Trips to visit family and friends!
Announcing that I'm participating in a book signing with Nora Roberts at her husband's Turn the Page Bookstore in Boonsboro, Maryland, and…staying at her fabulous Inn Boonsboro. We've booked the Eve and Roarke room, the one we chose the first time we stayed at this incredible B&B. This signing is a biggie on my bucket list!!!
In my newest series, I'm staying in Misty Bottoms, Georgia. The Wylder brothers are coming to town, and I have a feeling they're going to end up with far more than they bargained for in my Bachelors and Babies series!
My Magnolia Brides series takes place in Misty Bottoms. Think Georgia's
Low Country. Soft, summer nights, sweet tea sippin' on back porches, fireflies
twinklin', and those Southern men with slow drawls and slower hands. When
I'm there, I can stop by Dee-Ann's Diner for sweet tea…or peach tarts.
Or head into Cricket's Enchanted Florist for some fresh flowers.
By the time I finish these books, I'd swear to you that I not only visited these towns, I was born and raised there!
In my Maverick Junction, Texas series, the town is just brimming with lots of good-looking cowboys. Tight-fitting, well-worn jeans and a Stetson tipped low. Cowboy boots, dusty from riding the range and a day’s stubble shadowing a strong chin. Is there anything sexier than a cowboy?
