I've been writing stories since I was old enough to put pencil to paper. My mother raised me on books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, Carol Ryrie Brink, Elizabeth George Speare, Marguerite Henry, and Walter Farley. Wilder and Farley are probably contributing factors to my decades-long love affair with horses, particularly Morgans.

Horses comprise a significant part of my life. We didn't live on a farm and my parents didn't like horses, but that didn't stop me. I bought my first horse weeks before my 15th birthday with money earned from working at the family's ice cream parlor. Having passed 50 years old, I still have horses, two of which are Morgans.

In my early teens I started reading romance and fantasy: Danielle Steel, Barbara Cartland, Jude Deve

I have no intention of quitting the series. (It is a series, not a serial. There's a difference.) The third book, Russian Dawn, is underway and I hope to have it out by the end of March. That will be Latasha and Iosif's story. The series will come full circle with Giovanni and the daughter of Maksim and Olivia. I don't have a title for that one yet.(less)

Yes, I have two more books planned in this series: Russian Dawn, which will tell Latasha and Iosif's story, is due out by the end of March. A fourth book brings the series full circle with Giovanni and the daughter of Maksim and Olivia. I don't have a title for the fourth book yet, but it will probably be released in the summer of 2017.(less)

Prayers and gratitude

I wept yesterday.

Last week, we received a postage due envelope for the princely sum of $3.49 for a package from Catholic Central, the local parochial school. That's the school our children attended. Our older son, Matt, graduated from Catholic Central.

Yesterday, the package arrived. Curious, I opened it and saw handmade cards with short, sweet messages scrawled on folded copy paper by some childre Read more of this blog post »

Great story, needs a proofreader

This author tells a wonderful story, layered and intricate for all the simplicity of its plot. Unfortunately, the author apparently relies on spell check for editing. Plain is not the same as plane, cord is not the sam

Sweet and predictable are the two words that best describe this book. The heroine makes a poor decision after a trauma, moves, and meets the hero who's an admitted womanizer. The tall, handsome hero is immediately struck by this ube

Ugh

The heroine is supposed to be a PhD and is stupid, abysmally stupid. The hero doesn't appear all that bright either. Conversation between them is a cringe-inducing mix of cheesy, corny, creepy, and dirty. I'd give it one star, but decent copy edit

Spell check is not the sane as editing

This is probably a cute story, but the dire need of editing killed it for me and I did not finish reading it. Ugh.
