MY FAVORITE SEASON

Fall is always my favorite season. I love the colors and the cool days. Now, in this time of silence with no one to talk to and nowhere to go, I love the fall even more.

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.

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Jodi Thomas
Dispirited by war, when Trapper Hawkins accepts a job hauling five little rich girls to Dallas, all he cares about is the money.

And when danger strikes as Christmas Eve nears, he definitely doesn’t expect Emery and the girls to risk their lives—for him . . .
 
THE MISTLETOE PROMISE Sharla Lovelace
A catastrophic storm, an ailing herd, and a failing cattle ranch have left Texas rancher Josie Bancroft in danger of losing everything her father worked for. Still, she’d rather die than merge with her neighbor rancher Benjamin Mason, the man who broke her heart years ago, on Christmas Eve. As old sparks fly and secrets are revealed, however, Ben is determined to help Josie—and prove that this time around can be different. That the misunderstandings of Christmas past need not define their future . . .
 
CHRISTMAS ROAD Scarlett Dunn

Assuming his mother has passed, in his grief Clint ventures out to search for Amelia—and finds the best of gifts—just in time for Christmas . . .

Now I think of a teacher or nurse or mother settling back and relaxing with one of my books. I want to take her away on an adventure that will entertain her. Maybe, in a small way, I'm still making the world a better place."
