It Has Always Been My Dream To Write A Book

And I always knew it would be a romance novel. When I was a teenager I assumed my book would have a historical setting, those were the kinds of stories I liked best, I even grew my hair long so I could be like the heroines in my favorite stories. But now I see myself and my books in the present dealing with the joys and sorrows of our modern world. Harper Falls is a place my imagination dreamed up, but it is based in reality. I grew up in Washington State and went to school in a small town on the Columbia River. Harper Falls is that town but an idealized version. I hope you enjoy reading about the town and the characters.

And as much as I enjoyed telling their stories, these books are not the end of my dream but the beginning.

What’s Your Life in Romance Tropes?

on October 23, 2017

by Rebecca Brooks There are so many different kinds of romance I LOVE reading about but would never want anything to do with in real life. Alpha billionaires. Motorcycle bad boys. Anything paranormal— unless they can fly and take me with them, that would be cool! I’ve never had an opposites attract or enemies-to-lovers situation… Read More

Why I Live in the Boonies

on October 16, 2017

Lyn Cote here- Of course, the boonies is short for the boondocks. According to the online dictionary, the origin of this word is: boondocks — 1910s, from Tagalog bundok “mountain.” Adopted by occupying American soldiers in the Philippines for “remote and wild place.” Reinforced or re-adopted during World War II. Hence, also boondockers “shoes suited for… Read More

When Inspiration Hits, Listen!

on October 4, 2017

Sometimes a character pops into your head and just refuses to stop until you agree to write their story!  That’s what happened when spunky Maggie Sinclair, the heroine from ONE SUMMER NIGHT, showed up one day and insisted it was time for me to write a contemporary romance again.  But not just any contemporary romance. … Read More

A Christmas Affair by Jodi Thomas

on October 2, 2017

Often when I write a book there is a story that I didn’t have time to tell.  A person who didn’t get their happy ever after ending. Maria, Dakota’s sister in INDIGO LAKE, was that person.  I wanted to see her with her own story. The fact that Maria is blind is only a part… Read More

on August 28, 2017

By Veronica Forand I just returned from a ten-day journey through Scotland. I had a car and lots of enthusiasm.

This did not deter me from guiding everyone to some of… Read More
