A White Christmas

Here in my hometown of Madisonville we don't often have a beautiful, white Christmas! We have sleet, ice and on occassion snow that falls then immediatly melts when it hits the ground. But every once in a while we have a winter, wonder land of snowfall...and it's happening as I write this. It is beautiful and I almost missed it! LOL I've been working on my next book all afternoon and four hours ago, my son and daughter-in-law stopped by and as they were leaving it had started to sleet. Thinking the evening was just going to be miserable I went back to work. Little did I know it was snowing until my mother called and told me. Imagine my surprise when I walked out of my office and looked out my back door to white, snowy fields! Of course I immediatly pulled on my boots and gloves and went for a walk in the fields and the moonlight. It was such a lovely surprise, a gift from God to enjoy and I'm just happy I didn't miss it buried in work... :)

Merry Christmas!

What a lovely surprise for you this December! Here's a quick comment to let you know I love reading your books and look forward to more. Your story "Next Door Daddy" made me cry. I can't wait to read more from you.

Thank you Courtney! I love hearing from readers. Next Door Daddy was a special book I hate to say I'm glad you cried but I am glad you enjoyed it! I hope they were happy tears.
Have a Happy New Year!
