“It's easy to write upcoming scenes in books and television shows. Trusting God to write them in real life is a lot harder. But it's worth it. And you have to admit, it's an adventure.”
Janice Thompson, Stars Collide

“He flashed the warmest smile I'd ever seen, and my heart felt comforted. Maybe D.J. saw my insecurities, my fears. Maybe he knew God still had a lot of work to do in my life before I'd be good girlfriend material.
Or maybe, just maybe, he saw beyond all that and simply wanted to flirt with the wedding coordinator instead of rehearse for the big night.
I did my best to relax...and let him.”
Janice Thompson, Fools Rush In

“A Tip from Bonnie Sue: God is the ultimate band director. Pay close attention, because you don't want to get ahead of him. Stick with him in perfect timing, and he will make a beautiful melody out of your life.”
Janice Thompson, It Had to Be You

Ashley, thank you so much! I'm so grateful for your comment! You'll love this news. . .I'm about to write a story about a Greek family! It's true! I can't give you the title because it's subject to change, but it's going to be the second book in my second series for Revell. The first book in that series (Stars Collide) comes out in December. Stayed tuned for more chaos!

Ashley Mrs. Thompson,
I just finished Fool's Rush In and I have to say.......I LOVED it!! I've never felt more Italian in my life. LOL Considering I'm greek. Can't wait to get my hand on a copy of Swing On A Star and It Had To Be You. I know I'll be sad when this series end, though.:~)
