Hello there!

   It’s been a long time since we spoke. Did you have a good summer? I did even though August brought tons of rain and mosquitoes as big as your palm. Okay, that’s a bit of an exaggeration but they were fierce and it’s been super busy at my house since we undertook some much-needed renovations.
    Swimming ended early and my beloved pool has been torn up to make way for a new one which the town promises will be open by July of next year. I hope so because I can hardly wait to get back in the water with my buddies.
    Meantime, autumn’s on the way and hubby’s garden is coming to an end. Good thing because my freezer is chock full of raspberries and apples and tomatoes and blueberries and…well, you get the idea. I need a break!
    Wranglers Ranch, my latest series from Love Inspired set in Arizona is moving right along, too. So many of you wrote to say you enjoyed The Ranchers’ Family Wish. I’m just delighted to hear from you and of course, Tucson is a city near and dear to my heart so thank you for writing.
   Come November, Her Christmas Family Wish, the second book in my Wranglers Ranch series, will go on sale. One day a little girl named Gracie popped into my head and demanded I find her a daddy. So of course I had to write about it and this is it. Gracie’s made me laugh and cry with her determination to have a father. She’s one little girl who won’t accept no. Thankfully her mom sees the wisdom of her sweet daughter’s goal. I hope you’ll enjoy this story. It’s one of my faves.
    As you see, I have one of my very first books re-releasing this fall. Faithfully Yours will be on sale in October. It’s from my Faith, Hope and Charity series. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
Well, since it’s raining again, I guess I’ll go check out my quilting room. I need to start thinking about Christmas gifts. And there are the pumpkins to take care of. How many pumpkin pies do you get out of a ten-pound pumpkin anyway?

Blessings from my house to yours,
