Tango In Argentina

on May 20, 2024

I visited Argentina twice and fell in love with Buenos Aires, the Paris of Latin America. The city owes its reputation to its wealth of beautiful Belle Epoque buildings, architectural landmarks built in the early decades of the 20th century: the Plaza de Mayo and its Obelisco, La Recoleta Cemetery, Café Tortoni where you can… Read More

Writing Medical Romance

THE WILD LAVENDER BOOKSHOP is my second book in the Someday Valley series, which is a spinoff of my Honey Creek series. I loved writing this book first of all because I love bookstores.

Jodi Thomas

Jodi Thomas

A fifth-generation Texan, New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Jodi Thomas chooses to set the majority of her novels in her home state, where her grandmother was born in a covered wagon. A former teacher, Thomas traces the beginning of her storytelling career to the days when her twin sisters were young and impressionable.

With a degree in family studies, Thomas is a marriage and family counselor by education, a background that enables her to write about family dynamics. Honored in 2002 as a Distinguished Alumni by Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Thomas enjoys interacting with students on the West Texas A&M University campus, where she served as Writer in Residence.

Commenting on her contribution to the arts, Thomas said, "When I was teaching classes full-time, I thought I was making the world a better place. 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."

When not working on a novel, Thomas enjoys traveling with her husband, renovating a historic home they bought in Amarillo and checking up on their two grown sons.

Adele Royce

Adele Royce

Adele Royce (a pen name concocted from two middle names) has had quite a journey so far. She fell in love with advertising at an early age -- mostly from watching daytime reruns of Bewitched -- this when skipping class through some feigned ailment. And, although Adele prefers Darrin 2 to Darrin 1, she was interminably fixated on the hilarity of mixing witchcraft with the invention of advertising campaigns, and the drama surrounding it. Born in the heart of Los Angeles, Adele grew up not knowing what she wanted to be. But she wrote. Starting around age seven, she drove her teachers crazy pushing stories and poetry. She always had a penchant for the English language, which naturally, and rather stereotypically, made her horrible at math. Adele entered college and became an English major (no surprise!), reading and writing about the literary greats. Her favorite authors? Nabokov, the Brontes, Hugo, Whitman -- the pop 40 of classics. But her guilty pleasure was what became chick lit or women's fiction or whatever the branding geniuses ended up with to describe stories women like -- stories about relationships, men and women, singlehood, marriage and motherhood -- stuff that should be consumed on a cozy couch dressed in pajamas and sipping wine. After getting her lit degree, Adele pursued a career every English major would love: She went into publicity and advertising in the casino industry. Adele originally vowed to be an English professor -- but being broke and in severe student loan debt put her on a different path. After wandering the hinterlands of Nevada seeking adventure, she landed on the Las Vegas Strip. The casino industry in general is a mind-blowing experience; but picture a youngish PR woman juggling the promotion of famous entertainers, restaurants, night clubs and retail stores. Oh, and gambling. Lots of gambling. Adele essentially got into The Fly machine with Curious George (not saying she looks anything like a monkey) unwittingly scraping up against non-fictional characters who boasted joyously unsavory reputations one could only imagine. Yet, they existed in her colorful world full of unbelievable plot twists -- for many years. With some luck, Adele took her PR battle scars and moved into advertising; her already unpredictable life changed forever. For this was what she always dreamed of since her Bewitched days -- but now she could live it, sans witchcraft, for the most part. Adele's passion for writing conjured three manuscripts in a series -- all about the world of advertising. The trilogy is rife with vibrant fictional characters in Adele's favorite city: L.A. Adele has also received 10 consecutive first place awards for her short stories -- soon to be published in a collection! Adele resides in San Diego, California with her husband and cat.
