About this author

My life has always been papered with novels. From traditional Harlequin romances to epic books like Lonesome Dove, my reading interests are vast. I can't imagine a life without coffee, hot tamale candy and a book in hand. I write romance, but I read every genre...except sci-fi. But I can be persuaded.

Don't give into the idea all writing is inspired. It's work. You have a job, you must do that job. Skip to a new scene and move forward. You can always go back and write the one giving you fits later.(less)

Well, it’s our last post for the angel blog, and we both feel extremely blessed to have shared the last two weeks with readers who have given us the gift of holiday spirit. True Christmas spirit (or Chunnukah) is not measured by gifts and ribbbons and wrappings, but rather in the smiles of family, friends….and perfect strangers who give a piece of themselves.

No doubt that Ms. Flynn is a talented author. Her prose is beautiful to behold and the honesty of the character's emotions are achingly genuine. She'd got talent in spades.
