A Few Fun Coincidences with Debbie Macomber

I'm a huge fan of author Debbie Macomber. She is such a wonderful author and person who writes fantastic books. Through the years I've gone to many workshops she has presented at conferences and like all authors out there can only hope to have small portion of a career such as hers. To touch so many lives in a positive way is truly inspiring.

Often I run over to her website so I can see what she has coming out next or I read her blog. It's been a little while since I was there last and so yesterday when I dropped by I found out a new fun tidbit that we share. You see I publish under the name of Debra but all my friends call me Debbie. So we have that in common. Also, Debbie's husband's name is Wayne and my wonderful late husband's name was also Wayne. But wait--there's more. Last night I saw that Debbie and Wayne have a new puppy and they've named him Bogie! LOL this is a picture of my Bogie, he was my husband's puppy...he is even featured in my book Next Door Daddy. No they are not the same breed of dog but they are both adorable (my Bogie is a Chinese Shar Pei and Debbie's Bogie is a tiny mix of Pomeranian and Shih Tzu. ) I hope the Macomber's Bogie brings them as much joy as my Bogie has brought me :)
So as my good friend and fellow author Linda Goodnight says that is a really fun coinkydink! I love it and can't think of anyone whom I would like sharing such a fun coincidence with...hmmm, I wonder what her childrens names are? :)
Okay back to working on the latest Mule Hollow book. Be sure an keep an eye out for TEXAS RANGER DAD in April 2009. I'll be posting the cover soon!

You are invited! New blog Craftie Ladies of Romance

Hi Everyone!

Starting tomorrow I'll be posting on a regular basis on a new site that I'm starting with several of my fellow Love Inspired author friends. I'll still be posting here but at we hope to make it a bit more interactive. It will be a site celebrating faith, family,friends and fun. I hope you'll drop over. The first official post is tomorrow and it's my day to post. Each of us will post on a different day so there will always be something new going up on the site. Then on the 9th we will start our first contest The Twelve Days of Christmas with a twist! The authors of the new site will be me--Debra Clopton, Janet Tronstad, Lyn Cote, Lenora Worth, Linda Goodnight, Margaret Daley, Patricia Davids, Missy Tippins, Pamela Tracy, and Valerie Hansen.

I hope you'll stop by!

I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving. I know I felt blessed to have my family with me. And I wanted to stop in and say that I'm also so blessed to have the support of so many of you who read my books. And I'm blessed to have such wonderful publishers and editors at Steeple Hill also. I couldn't let the day get completely away from me without saying thank you.
God bless!
