I'm hoping everyone is on the look out for NEXT DOOR DADDY! I love this book and readers from the bookclub who have already received the book in the mail are sending me the best letters. It hits the bookstores about 3 days before January so I hope everyone will grab a copy--I promise it will make you laugh and it might make you cry too. It is my first book about a widow and a widower and God just put it in my heart that it was time for me to write this story. It was the hardest thing I've ever done but the most rewarding. This story is so full of love and comments from readers such as Carols under one of the other post just bless my heart so much. I write my stories to make you smile, to forget your troubles for the few hours it takes to read one of my books but also to touch your hearts. As I write I pray for the readers who will read my books and that God will give me something in each book that will meet a need. Sometimes that's just to make you laugh when you really needed to laugh. To be entertained when you really needed to be entertained. But I share my heart in the hope that my experiences will translate to those who need something more from me...NEXT DOOR DADDY was a complete work of love and I hope you all enjoy it and please leave comments. I believe with your comments you can also touch the lives of those who come here and read them. I've had letters from readers who said this was the funniest book! And then heartfelt letters from widows who've said the book helped them remember wonderful moments shared with loved one who've passed away. God bless you all.

This is a great book! You've dealt well with a lot of very realistic issues. I've thoroughly enjoyed the series.

I'm sure I'm not the first to point it out, but cockatiels are not green. They are normally gray & yellow with an orange dot on their cheeks. Some are hybridized to different colors, but they stay in the white/yellow/gray range.

I look forward to the continuing series!

Hey Cookie! Thanks for stopping by. My sister had a green cockatiel--he was bright, near lime green with orange spots on his cheeks. Do you think he was some sort of hybrid maybe? LOL if I have that fact wrong y'all just pretend that the first green cockatiel created lives in Mule HOllow dancing his little heart out!!! :)
