New Book Update

Good day!  I hope you are enjoying your summer.

I’m happy to say that I’m nearing the end of my latest book, River Runs Deep.  I’m including the description to whet the appetite of all you romance lovers out there.  Hallmark, you haven’t seen anything, yet! 🙂  The book should be available by late August to early September.  I’ll keep you updated.  In the meantime, be happy, be well and prosper, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound!

R i v e r    R u n s    D e e p

Artist and part-time grocery employee, Catherine Donahue, is left feeling even more frustrated and disheartened after a drastic change disrupts her already frazzled life.  For years, she had faith things would get better, yet they seem to be getting worse.  But when Catherine rediscovers a long-ago cherished gift hidden under the chaos of her once organized drawers, a secret memory transports her back 23 years to a college, a pow-wow, and Sam – a young Mohawk, who made a single weekend last a lifetime.

As the days ahead bring synchronized hints of Native American connections across Catherine’s path, she ponders their significance.  Is there a possibility she might chance upon her long-lost, beloved weekend companion – or is she indulging in a frivolous fantasy?   And could the coincidence of her newly acquired painting commission hold the key to happiness and a lasting chance at love – or ultimately, to another disappointment?

Beautiful You

Sometimes, when we feel worn and tired, it’s hard to see the beauty that is still within us.  It takes a deeper look to know that beauty never dies or fades away, it simply presents itself in a different form.  I hope today you behold the beautiful you!

Until next time, may happy days abound!

Keeping it Simple

Sometimes keeping it simple is the best thing.  Beauty stands out more clearly without mind-clutter.  A good day to write.

I hope you enjoy some simple pleasures today, with room to breathe.

Until next time, may happy days abound!

River Runs Deep Update

Good day, Everyone…Welcome to Leisure Lane!

I hope you’re all having a good day.  The weather here has been hot then cool, then hot…well, you get the idea.  I am enjoying the cool days and exceptionally grateful for every one of them.

I promised to keep you posted on the progress of my newest novella,  River Runs Deep.  I have recently finished chapter 7 and the cover.  For something that was going to be a simple romance, I seem to be getting all caught up with it, finding myself wanting to talk about the characters and story-line.  But my friends, both young and…not as young ;)…are more anxious to read it and don’t want to know the details.  So, I guess that’s another incentive to keep writing and finish it.

Once the book is finished and ready for publishing, I’ll tell you what led me to write it.

Be blessed today, my friends, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound.
