I learned much later that it was a Newberry Award Winner in the 60's, so at least I had good taste. :-)(less)

All That Makes Life Bright is the third "True Romance" I have done, the others were about Henry Longfellow and then Sir Walter Scott.

I am REALLY excited about the release of my first national market women's fiction novel, As Wide as the Sky, which will be released on July 31st from Kensington Books. This will also be the first novel I have done under a pen name--Jessica Pack. The reason for the pen name is to differentiate this novel from my other novels, as this one has different content. While I hope many current fans of... Read more of this blog post »

Pink (Shine) Thank You for friending me, Josi! I love your Culinary Mystery books!


Kimberly Hi Josi! I'm rereading "To Have or to Hold" at the moment. I had to tell you, it's refreshing to read a novel that is placed in Utah that doesn't take place in South Salt Lake. It seems like most people think that Northern Utah ends at Salt Lake. They forget Bountiful and all the lovely cities that are north of there. :)
