Hola, Jolene Navarro here. Usually I’m checking in from the Texas Hill Country but today I’m going to share New York with you.
Recently I saw a report in Healthy Woman about the benefits of trips with your girlfriends. I totally believe this to be true.
Last week I had a wonderful week in New York City. It was the national Romance Writers of America (RWA) National Conference. This is a week traveling with, spending time with and surrounded by my writing tribe. Who for the most part are women.
It’s a time that fills my well and inspires me.
From seeing the sites in New York to celebrating each other we were on the go.
This tribe is made up of friends that are in my daily life in San Antonio and friends that I only get to see once a year.
I realized that I love writing about the impact of female relationships in my stories. The Lone Star Legacy series (Texas Daddy, The Texan’s Twins, & Lone Star Christmas) I have a family of four sisters and loved exploring their interaction. In my new series, Cowboys of Diamondback Ranch the relationship is between sister-in-laws and mother/daughter. The Texan’s Secret Daughter has three generations of women trying to get it right and finding a balance in their relationships. In The Texan’s Surprise Return, Selena has been leaning on her sister-in-laws and grandmother to get her through a really tough time…then her husband returns from the dead.
Returning home with amnesia years after he was declared dead, Xavier De La Rosa is prepared to reconnect with family—but he’s stunned to learn he has a wife and triplets. Can he recover his memory in time to reunite his family for Christmas?
It was such a fun book to write and look at those triplets. It is up for pre-order.
Do you have female friends you hang out with?
