First and Last

B&B infantsThis is a year of first for me. My first novel releases in a couple of months – also my first solo flight into traditional publication. That’s huge. I’ve started working with a new ministry and have taken on a new role in one of the other ministries with which I work. I’ve also taken on the teaching tasks for 2 brand new high school classes at our large co-op. One is Bible study that I can really sink my teeth into. The other is Continue reading

Torn Between Two Loves

rio-1585738_1920The melody of the old 80’s song is filtering through my mind, but being ultra-happily married, I’m not really talking about “lovers.” I’m talking about things that absorb my time!

If you’ve noticed many of my Facebook posts, you know that I’m  Continue reading

Review: TROUBLE UP FINNEY’S NOSE by Dana Mentink

In my book, Dana Mentink is a bonafide master! She’s an award-winning suspense author, and has several highly successful romance novels, (love her “Love Unleashed” series starring various adorable dogs!) but started her career in cozy mysteries. Wow! Just Wow!

Trouble Up Finney's NoseMy daughter and I had the pleasure of listening to the first of her cozy series set in a quirky, small town on coast of northern California. Trouble Up Finny’s Nose had us in hysterics one moment and twisted in curiosity the next.

Here’s the Short Version:

Stop Human Trafficking

Blue Heart campaign2I was shocked earlier this year to learn that I20, which crawls through the south side of the DFW Metroplex, is the country’s main vein for Human Trafficking. This form of slavery isn’t new by any means, but it is relatively young in America, at least on this scale.

Every night, there are at least 400 teens, slaves, along the streets of Dallas alone. Even more when there is a major sporting event like a Ranger baseball game or a Cowboy game.

I SO Left You Hanging! (Don’t you hate that???)

climber-299018_1920I don’t know about you, but I got to the end of Dani’s last story, Grime Spree and was ready to keep going. After all, the final page ends with a huge revelation as Jay cruises up the driveway of his parents’ home.

Visiting the parents? That’s a biggie in a relationship! Something I’d sure want to read about!

My original plan for this series had only 4 books in it, but if I stuck with that, you wouldn’t get to find out what happened between Dani and Jay’s parents. And SO MUCH happened let me Continue reading
