A New Year’s message and update to my readers and friends:
As a new year begins, I wanted to thank everyone for the emails and positive encouragement I received throughout 2017, asking when the next novel about their favorite character was coming or inquiring about the continuation of several series which I’ve penned. I honestly had high hopes for 2017 as a writer, sure that I would be able to continue the full-time career I have by day and pen my stories at night or whenever I could find a stolen moment, much as I have before. And though the year began productively, it quickly turned into a battle to make any kind of headway as a writer due to serious health concerns which recurred from the past. Late in the fall of 2017, I required an additional surgery to work through the issues my health presented, and so I pray that I will continue to heal and grow stronger, and be able to give you, my readers, the tales of love and hope that I do so love to pen. So, continue to check back here on my website from time to time, and know that as new novels are ready to be placed into your hands, I will share that news and be grateful for each new opportunity I have to spread a little hope and warmth from my heart to yours. My first announcement should come soon, as I am nearing the completion of Behind Closed Doors: The Fire.
