I know God created me to be a writer, and because of that, it's very easy for me.

I also like the fact that I can work at home. I turned one of the bedrooms into an office when my daughters grew up and left home, so my office is right down the hallway, and when I get an new idea, I just go to the office and document it for when I'm working again.(less)

1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: By Lena Nelson Dooley ISBN: 978-1935416746 Summerside Press Historical Romance All that glitters is not gold. It’s 1890, and Golden, New Mexico, is a booming mining town where men far outnumber women. So when an old wealthy miner named Philip Smith finds himself in need of a nursemaid, he places an ad for a mail-order bride—despite the protests of his friend Jeremiah. Hoping to escape a perilous situation back East, young Madeline Mercer answers the ad and arrives in town under a cloud of suspicion. But just as she begins to win over Philip—and Jeremiah himself—the secrets she left behind threaten to follow her to Golden...and tarnish her reputation beyond redemption. Love Finds You in Golden, New Mexico, received 4 stars from Romantic Times Magazine.
