I’d love the chance to see your face and get to know who you are!


Summer 2014 News:

I’ve been in the middle of a HUGE kitchen remodeling project this summer. My husband and I have never undertaken such a big project before. We’ve been overwhelmed by all of the choices. There are hundreds of colors of grout, tile, cabinets, and counter tops. We had a difficult time narrowing the choices! Needless to say, we’re looking forward to being done and enjoying the new kitchen!


Here is our lovely kitchen with everything torn out and the new tile floor being laid.


All of the choices in my kitchen remind me of all the many choices of books readers have today. It can be very overwhelming to browse bookstore shelves both in stores and online. There are just so many books out there! How can readers narrow down books they’ll enjoy the most?

One helpful way I find other books is by going to the Goodreads Page of a book that I really enjoyed. Once there I find the section in the upper right-hand corner marked, “Readers Also Enjoyed.” I browse through those books which usually gives me several other recommendations.

I hope one of the books you’ll choose to read this summer is my newest release, Captured by Love. It releases July 1 and is the third book in the Michigan Bride Collection.  I’ll be hosting a blog tour during the month of July where each week I’ll be giving a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the book. Check out the list of posts here on my Media Page.

Hope you will have many happy hours of reading this summer, including Captured by Love!
