{The Land of Look Behind} Book Review

There is such excitement in the air when an author make their debut, especially when their book is diverse, adventurous, and intriguing. Aaron Blaylock launched his new book, The Land of Look Behind  yesterday. I’m happy to be a stop on the blog tour to spread the word about his novel set in historic and modern Jamaica. Ah, Jamaica, that little island we often think about in vacation daydreams. If you know anything about the origins of the island, you know there is a stunning variety of peoples who make up the modern day Jamaican population. In The Land of Look Behind, we encounter the Spanish, escaped African slaves turned warriors, English soldiers and more. In a cool note of serendipity, I met Aaron through Mr. Houston. Both of them served missions to...

Christmas Romance Sale!

When I was a teen, one of my favorite things to do was curl up with this darling little Christmas novel called Christmas By The Book, by Beverly King. For a night or two, I was transported to the snowy wilds of a cabin in Idaho where city girl Amanda has to pull off an old fashioned Christmas complete with wood burning stove. Taking that book off the shelf every year marked the beginning of the holiday season for me, a time when miracles happen and unlikely alliances are struck. My dream when I wrote Cookie Girl Christmas was that it would join the ranks of beloved holiday novels that ring in the season from year to year.  And since books make the BEST gifts, I’ve teamed up with talented romance writer, Kimberly Krey, to make it easier than ever to stock...

Books for Freedom

One day I was driving and saw this little child walking alongside the road. He was alone, and in my eyes, much too small to be without a parent on that busy street. It struck me in that moment, when I felt the need to watch him in my rear view mirror until I saw him turn down another street, that I was ruined. Ruined in a beautiful way. I could no longer see a child and ignore the tug on my heart that just needed to know if they were okay. I couldn’t hear a baby crying in Target without wondering if there was some way I could help make this shopping trip easier. It has become impossible not to meet a baby’s eyes and want to pour the secrets of their soul out into my lap.  For me, becoming a mother doesn’t just apply to the children who I carried...
