Stories from the heart. Books that feel like home.

Now that we are over two-thirds of the way through 2019 (and, wow, how did that happen??), I thought we could talk about the Goodreads 2019 Reading Challenge.

Goodreads is a social media site for book lovers. If you’ve never visited, I highly recommend it. It’s a seriously fun and addictive place for readers to hang out. (I love serious fun, don’t you?) I only visit every few weeks because I can’t seem to spend less than an hour on the site each time I go there!

Every year they do a reading challenge, in which you set a reading goal for the year and then see how many books you can read. You also get to play with your friends, see how much they read, comment on each others goals, etc. Again: serious fun!

Currently I’m behind my goal by twenty-two books, which is embarrassing but just means that I have to devote more time to reading (darn it all!) (tee-hee).  Gives me a wonderful excuse to curl up and read for at least an hour a day (or ten hours a day, whatever!).  Above you can see some of the books I’ve read so far in 2019. All of them have been extraordinary in their own way.  If you want to see all the books I’ve read this year, you can click here.

Are you doing the Goodreads Reading Challenge? Let us know what you’re reading and how you like it. I’d love to hear from you!

Hello, friends! I know, it’s been a while since I posted anything here. Things are rolling right along for me, and I hope they are for you as well.

I’m very excited to share that I’ve been invited to be part of the Author’s Room at the Edinburg Mill, and I’ll be signing books there on Saturday, September 21, from 10:00 to 1:00. The signing is part of the Edinburg Ole Time Festival, which runs September 20 thru 22. There are many activities planned which will be fun for the whole family. I hope you’ll come out and see me, then stay and have some fun at the festival!

When: Saturday, September 21, 2020, 10 AM to 2 PM

Well, friends, I am back in Virginia! I enjoyed my year in Los Angeles more than I can possibly say, but the bi-coastal thing was tough on family life, so I am once again an East Coaster. (Of course, in my heart I will always be a Virginia girl.) My wanderlust has not been fully satiated, but I am definitely so happy to be home.

My husband joined me on my trip back to Virginia. Below are some pictures from our trip. Thanks as always for sticking with me!

Hugs and happy reading!
