I spend my days in fiction both writing and reading and to my surprise I’ve become more creative. I know this is a time to worry and some even panic, but me, I find it also a time to dream.
Some stories come into my head like a fast moving train. The anthology story, “Father Goose” in The Cowboy Who Saved Christmas, came to me fast. I stayed up way too late writing it because I couldn’t leave the five little girls stranded. A might be stuck inside, but I was traveling in 1867 across Texas, trying to get home by Christmas.
The book I’m working on now is drifting through my mind, maybe because I, like most folks these days, am drifting. I enjoy going deeper into my characters.
I’m loving watching the leaves change along the Red River and I’m loving fall in my small town.
May we all find a bit of peace in this time. I can’t send you all a postcard but I’ll send you my view from my study.
In these Texas-set stories of romance and adventure, the Civil War is over, Christmas is coming—and it’s time for three rugged fighters to become lovers . . .
