I have exciting news. I've changed directions, or rather my writing has. I enjoy romantic suspense and crime dramas, but lately I've yearned for a good romance story without the blood and terror.

It began a few years ago. I wrote two sweet romance novellas for the ROMANCE ON ROUTE 66 anthology. It was fun, and readers gave me encouraging feedback. Then I tried inspirational romance for a Christmas anthology, a short story titled The Christmas Prayer. I like inspirational romance, but I'm more comfortable with the latitude offered by "sweet" romance. The final trigger to my career shift came when Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove series aired this summer on the Hallmark Channel. I love it, and loved those books. I want to write those kind of stories.

I already have the town, Drake Springs, Florida, in fictional Foster County. The town is full of interesting characters, some quirky, all endearing. I approached my publisher with the series idea, and she urged me to write, write, write. Apparently readers are hungry for series.

So if you've been to Drake Springs via my romantic suspense novels RECLAIM MY LIFE or REBUILD MY WORLD, or my short story VEILED THREAT, welcome back. Expect to see many more stories. If you haven't read those titles, you don't need to. Each book stands alone, and you'll soon feel right at home in Foster County, Florida.

Now, back to the keyboard . . .
