Julia Justiss grew up breathing the scent of sea air near the colonial town of Annapolis, Maryland, a fact responsible for two of her life-long passions: sailors and history! By age twelve she was a junior tour guide for Historic Annapolis, conducting visitors on walking tours through the city that was a hotbed of revolutionary fervor. (Annapolis hosted its own tea party, dispensing with the cargo aboard the "Peggy Stewart," and was briefly capital of the United States.) She also took tourists through Annapolis's other big attraction, the United States Naval Academy. After so many years of observing future naval officers at P-rade and chapel, it seemed almost inevitable that she eventually married one.

The first, for Tule, is one of four linked Christmas Whiskey River (Texas) stories, mine going first, that are a take on Dicken's "A Christmas Carol." My hero, a wounded WWI soldier, returns after months in hospital, intending to marry his fiancee at Christmas, but she dies of influenza. She loves him so much, she wants him to be happy, so she stays on as the "ghost of Christmas past," helping him to find love again. Having enjoyed that experience, she returns each Christmas to help the star-crossed lovers of the three contemporary stories find happiness. A TEXAS CHRISTMAS PAST will be out in November 2017. The second project is the story of the first of the "Scandal Sisters," the twin sisters of Christopher, hero of my September 2017 release, SECRET LESSONS WITH THE RAKE. (less)

It’s always a little sad to complete a series. You have “lived” with these characters for months, and leaving their world is like saying “good-bye forever” to a dear friend. So it helps if the new story you move on to write to involves characters from the previous work. Which is the case here!

My bad. I've got a dicey internet connection and just haven't been very active. But I'm attempting to change that! The challenge is to not get so caught up in TALKING about the books I love that I run out of time to write!
