What do you think she’s reading?
Hahaha, I love this.
Isn’t that what Saturdays are for, after all?
Very honored to be interviewed for the Kirkus Romance blog! In which I discuss my writing journey, the evolution of You May Kiss the Bride, what I’ve learned from my characters along the way, some of my favorite books of 2017, and more. Click here to read!

I can’t say I’m a fan of murder mysteries, yet lately I’ve found myself happily engrossed in a great fat volume of Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple stories. What a wonderful character Jane Marple is! So demure, so self-effacing, yet so coolly brilliant and discerning.
She’s definitely one of those characters I’d love to meet in real life. It would be such fun to sit down and have a cuppa with her. :)
. . . on Facebook, as I did in my last post, here are two more groups you may want to check out — and join. First, there’s the recently formed Avon Contemporary Romance Readers group. Very lively and fun!
Second, there’s the brand-new League of Extraordinary Historical Romance Authors, featuring a powerhouse crew including Lenora Bell, Kelly Bowen, Kerrigan Byrne, Valerie Bowman, KJ Charles, Piper Huguley, Sophie Jordan, Sarah MacLean, Vanessa Riley, Maya Rodale, Cat Sebastian, Joanna Shupe, and Sherry Thomas. It’s launching this Friday at 3 pm EST with a party hosted by Lenora Bell, with book chats, giveaways, and more. Sounds like a blast!
What are your favorite places to hang out on Facebook?
. . . about this nifty Facebook group for book lovers like me — and you, too, perhaps?
Last year I was lucky enough to participate in the annual Read a Romance Month event hosted by journalist, book devotee, and romance advocate Bobbi Dumas, and I’ve recently learned that Bobbi also cohosts the very fun Romance of Reading group on Facebook where you can hang out with fellow readers, talk about great books, and enter to win book giveaways, too.
And check out the lively Read a Romance month page on Facebook, too!
