A Fabulous Friday and a Surprise!

Hello!

I wanted to write a brief post to share with you one of the happenings in my middle school History classroom. This past week, I shared with students the story of Henry Box Brown, a slave who mailed himself to freedom. In the photo below, the tape on the floor represents the dimensions of the Henry's box. Here, a student tries to become small enough to fit into a square the same size as Henry's box a cramped five feet, ten inches. Henry had a 27-hour journey to get to freedom. History comes alive in Mrs. Tweedt's classroom!



Now for the surprise! My book, A Lady for the Lawman, has been chosen as a finalist for this year's Grace Award in the category Action/Adventure/Western/Epic Fiction. Wow! I am so honored and excited! You can get more details about the Grace Award and other books named as finalists here: https://graceawardsdotorg.wordpress.com/2016/03/22/andthe-grace-awards-2015-finalists-are/

Happy Easter,

Groundhog Day Blizzard?

Weather forecasters are predicting a storm with as much as 16 inches of snow in the next few days. Winds could be as high as 40-50 miles per hour.Yikes! I just came from the grocery store and it was a crazy house with people scurrying around. The bread and soup aisles were especially packed.

 This reminded me of the blizzard I wrote about in my novel Faith and Hope-Grace's Story where a freak blizzard isolates an entire town.We have it so much easier than they did on the plains in 1870. Let's calm down and enjoy the show Mother Nature is about to put on. I',m ready for hot chocolate, soup and curling up with a good book..

RAH Retreat!

This weekend I have the joy of being at the 2016 RAH Retreat. This is an opportunity for romance writers to get together and share personal experience, stories, laughs, and time. I am so excited to be with this wonderful group! Lots of inspiring things are happening and it is refreshing!

Below is a picture of best selling author Mary Connealy, Harlequin editor Giselle Regus, and myself! How cool is that?!




 I am so excited to be here at the retreat. I hope all of you are enjoying a nice book and staying out of the cold!

Happy New Year!

This year I am so thankful for many reasons: my folks who are world travelers returned safely from their latest adventure in Africa, my husband and I celebrated 24 years of marriage, I still enjoy teaching middle school students, I published two books with Prism Book Group and I am celebrating 20 years of being a cancer survivor! God's hand in all of this is so plain to me. I wish you all a blessed 2016. Never stop learning!
