I have weddings on my mind. Thirty-six years ago, as of March 21st, I walked down the aisle and into the waiting arms of my beloved. On that happy day, I couldn’t imagine how hard Joe and I would have to work for all those vows we made—for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, […]
Third Ring’s a Charm
If you like real life love stories, you’ve got to hear about the one that inspired my work-in-progress, Fiancé Finale. A friend of mine dated a guy, but when they broke up, he got engaged to someone else. On the night before his wedding to the other woman, my friend randomly prayed, “God if you […]
The Wedding Went Off Without a Hitch – NOT #Giveaway
Our son got married last month. The ceremony was gorgeous, the bride was breathtaking, the groom was cute as could be, it was a beautiful day, and the wedding went off without a hitch. NOT! One major oops threatened the festivities. One of the bridesmaids got her dates mixed up. She thought it was the […]
Wedding Plan Mishaps and a 99 Cent Novel Set!
Hello Inspy Readers, I’m currently researching for my next book which will be called Holding Onto Hope. You may remember Hope from my new novel Healing Skye.

Novel Weddings! And a Freebie!
Happy Holidays, Inspy Romance Readers! I’ve just spent the weekend at a family wedding in Birmingham, Alabama! It was just so beautiful.

The Power of Friendship
A man that hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24 A friend I’ve had since high school called me yesterday afternoon to let me know that she would be providing supper for me and my husband. You have no idea what a blessing […]
All I Wanna Do Is Dance! + Giveaways!
I’m currently working on the second in The Spencer Family series and a couple of days ago I found myself writing yet another dance scene. I just can’t seem to help myself. There’s no better feeling that being able to move your body to music without a care in the world about who might be […]
Keeping It Real
I can totally identify with the photo of the coffee spilling on the keyboard! Anyone else? As my social media feed (particularly on Instagram) becomes overly filtered and posed, I’ve come to appreciate those people who still share “real” life. Not that I don’t love those beautiful posts–but “real life” stuff has it’s own […]
Do you like weddings? Even though I know that a wedding is only the beginning (of a family life), I enjoy when a romance book ends with a wedding. There is something about the overflowing joy of the couple, the commitment, the first moment of life together, the promise to honor each other, the happiness […]
This time five years ago, my life turned topsy-turvy. My husband and I were winging our way back from a month-long holiday in Finland and Romania. What lay ahead during the next ten days was crazy, and looking back, I can’t believe I accomplished what I did. We had gone to Finland to attend the […]
