Good things are Coming…

What a year this has been! I hope you and your loved ones are safe and well.

I think so many of us have a new appreciation for patience, coming off this last year. We’ve had to wait. And wait. Wait for news, wait for numbers, wait for vaccines, wait to see friends and family again, wait for schools to open, wait for lockdowns to be lifted, wait for vacations…wait for normalcy. Sometimes the wait was hard. At other times, hope and good news seemed to make the wait easier. As a mom to a ten year old and fourteen year old, we’ve had to say goodbye to graduation dreams, to two spring breaks, to baseball games and dance recitals, to adjust to at-home learning, to starting high school in a very different way. All the while waiting and praying and hoping for things to return to the way they were. So much was lost. But sometimes, it’s in the wait that the greatest lessons are learned. Appreciation for the roof over our heads, the food on the table, the family by our sides.

The best blessings can come from long seasons of waiting, even when we can’t imagine it. Even when we’re in the thick of trial, good things might be just around the corner, even when we aren’t brave enough to look for the corner.

In my newest release, Wishing for a Cowboy, my heroine, Janie has been waiting without even knowing it. Without expecting it. She’s been trudging along, head down, doing her best to pursue her own goals all the while raising her nephew. She never even imagined there could be something better…until she met the man who would change her life forever. As for the hero, Aiden, he wasn’t looking for anything either. But then when he meets the son he never knew existed and the woman who was his son’s guardian he fights for a life and a family that could make them all whole. But it couldn’t happen right away. They all had to believe that life could be better. Strong relationships aren’t built in a day. But the three of them persevered and let walls down and had to learn to trust. Eventually, that faith led them to their happily-ever-after, even when the outside world threatened to tear apart the tenuous bond they shared.

I think especially after this year we can all identify with that need to hope for something greater, hope for a better way. And always hope that good things are coming.

Now that release day is finally here for this book, I find myself turning to all books that offer comfort and happily-ever-after’s. I hope that you’re well and safe and can take the time to escape into a book that will fill you with the hope and peace that only love can bring.

I always knew I wanted to be a writer and in grade five, I penned my first story, bound it (with staples) and a cardboard cover and did all the illustrations myself (if you’ve ever seen my drawings you’ll know how horrible they must have been. I still draw stick figures). Luckily, this book will never see the light of day again. In high school I fell in love with historical romance and then contemporary romance. After graduating University with an English Literature degree, I married my own hero, pursued a degree in Interior Design and then opened my own business. After the birth of our first child, I knew it was time to fulfill the dream of writing romantic fiction. I’m a hopeless romantic who is living my dream, penning happily-ever-after’s for my characters in between managing kids and the family business. Writing on a laptop in the middle of the country in a rambling old Victorian house would be ideal, but I’m quite content living in suburbia with my husband, our two young children, and very bad cat. I’d love to hear from you! Always feel free to connect with me via email, Twitter, or Facebook.

    I cannot wait to have my mother over, so she can help me design and think what flowers to plant out front my porch. I am not a green thumb. My mother (and late grandmother) are. So, I have to avail myself on her expertise on that score.

    This story looks like it will be great. I’m adding it to my list.

    I’m looking forward to being able to go antique hunting without masks and restrictions. Folks in our community have been great, but a restored sense of normalcy is so missed.

    Blessings to you and your family.

    I am a volunteer for The Friends of the Library, we had been selling used books in a small room in the library with the proceeds benefitting the library. I can’t wait until we can open the doors to that again. We are a close knit group and we loved to talk books amongst ourselves and with the people browsing the shop.
