As the saying goes, March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb, transforming winter to spring. Despite spring's late arrival in some parts of the country, in Washington and Florida the blooms are bursting out all over. I love spring. It’s as if the earth itself reminds us of the opportunities for renewal and growth. I'm already thinking about what I want to plant in my garden and can't wait to see my children and grandchildren this Easter. I'm also looking forward to visiting Traverse City, Michigan for a special evening presented by the National Writers Series on May 7th. Fitting for spring, this series exists to transform people of all ages through the power of storytelling. To learn more and purchase tickets, click here.
I’m excited about the release of my newest novel,Last One Home (on sale March 10). Last One Home is not part of any of my series books and centers around a brand new character, Cassie Carter and her two sisters. After high school, Cassie ran away to marry the wrong man and broke her family’s hearts. Now, twelve years later, she has returned to make a fresh start. It seems appropriate that this story will be released in spring, the season of new beginnings. My wish is that you'll find inspiration and hope in this season and in Cassie’s story, Last One Home.
I love coconut cake, but baking one from scratch can be a serious chore. This quick and easy recipe is a great solution! Perfect for Easter or just enjoying with friends on a spring evening.
It's a joy to connect with my readers in many different ways! I post updates about my books, life and interests on Facebook daily. I'm new to Twitter, but I've really enjoyed connecting with readers on an individual basis and sharing snippets of my day to day life there. Pinterest is just downright addicting! I love finding exciting new recipes, knitting patterns and holiday ideas on Pinterest. I also make a Pinterest board for each of my new books. Take a look at my board for Last One Home. I keep all my videos organized on YouTube, so if you'd like to learn more about me, watching some of my YouTube videos is a great way to do so! I would love to connect with you in any and all of these places! I look forward to seeing you there!
