What I'm Currently Reading

It's September 1, 2022, my dad's 85th birthday (Happy Birthday Pops!), and time to start writing my new book.

In anticipation of that, I'm re-reading Jenny Hale's A Lighthouse Christmas for inspiration, one of my favs for its delightful attention to winter and Christmas magic.

The book I'll be writing through the Fall is titled, Christmas with the Cowboy. It's pretty much plotted, although I reserve the right as the author to turn my outline on its head and go in a different direction. It's one of the things I love about writing--all the surprises.

I've never written a book that takes place in the winter time before, so I'm excited for this one. I can't wait to see where my imagination takes me.

My All-Time Favorite Books

The Plantagenet and Tudor Novels
By Philippa Gregory
Jane Eyre
By Charlotte Bronte
Theft of Swords
By Michael J. Sullivan
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
By J.K. Rowling
To Kill a Mockingbird
By Harper Lee
Pride and Prejudice
By Jane Austen
For the pure love of romantic comedy--Austen is the master, plus she shattered cultural norms.
I adore the whole series, the world she built, the characters she created, but there is just something really wonderful about the third book. The story is so complex, yet underscores a simple truth: how a young boy is yearning for his family.
One of the better modern-day fantasy authors. 
I've always been fascinated with the War of the Roses in British History. This series breathes life into the women who lived and died in that treacherous time. My medieval romance, The Entangled Princess, is set in such a time with the same kinds of political intrigue and danger.
Heartbreaking and helped me understand cultural bias. Plus, Atticus Finch is one of the all-time great heroes in American literature.
Life-altering--I learned to follow my heart, like Jane.
