Hi there.

Is spring springing in your neck of the woods? No grass showing here yet but the temperatures are moving in the right direction. Which probably means we need to resume renovations because there’s a bathroom in desperate need of tender loving care. Sigh.

In my Wranglers Ranch series for Love Inspired, The Cowboy’s Easter Family Wish debuts in April and then The Twins’ Family Wish is out in August. You already know I love Tucson and these stories are some of my favorites so I hope you’ll enjoy all four books in the series.

I’ve written a novella, Christmas Eve Cowboy, that will be out in November, paired with a novella from another Love Inspired author. It’s set in the fictional town of Snowflake, Montana. Now I’m hard at work on a new series to be set in Canada. No firm details yet, except that I’m loving how it’s coming together. Don’t worry. I’ll keep you posted.

I, probably like you, have a hundred things on my to-do list once spring arrives. Waiting for winter always makes me dream of gardening--well, I dream of hubby doing the gardening. I write the lists! And I have a few items requiring checking off. Poor man has no idea.

Also, I’d like to visit the Maritime provinces this fall. There are a couple of quilt tops needing completion. I hope to indulge my new hobby of making fiber pots. I’d also like to get back to the mountains when it’s not blizzarding and…that’s another list.

Meantime, I hope you’ll feel springtime in your heart, that your step will be light and your spirits lifted in renewal as we anticipate a season of rebirth.

Blessings from my house to yours,
