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.
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?
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 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!
I love chocolate frozen custard, Peppermint Patties, a bargain, anything by Blake Shelton, Chris Young, and Thomas Rhett—yes, a country music thing going there—and sitting in my local coffee shop reading or writing and enjoying an iced coffee.
I have an obsession with two-seater convertibles. There’s nothing I enjoy more than to put down the top and sneak off by myself for a drive. A stop at Starbucks for a peppermint mocha, my CD player cranked up, and I am one happy woman. And if scenes from the new book I’m working on start to pop in my head? All the better!
So why don’t y’all grab a sweet tea or a cup of coffee and stroll through my website with me?
