I can finally say I've written a Heartwarming novel!! Two of them, actually, in six weeks time. They are a mini series called The Historic Arapaho, set in a historic apartment building in downtown Denver. The first book, Once Upon a Friendship, is out in July!! The second, Once Upon A Marriage, is out in October. My editor is working on Once Upon A Friendship and says she loves it!!! I hope you all do, too. This is a new venture for me. I was a little shaky when I first dove into the pool. But felt like I could swim the ocean by the time I typed 'The End' for the second time. Today I saw the unofficial cover art for Once Upon A Friendship. I LOVE IT!! I wanted to share it with you all, but it has to be a secret until it's official.
So...I will share something else.
This story is a standalone. Completely. And yet, it's also connected to a bigger hole. It's different. It takes place, for the most part in three days. It's intense. Lives are in the balance. And a counselor has to decide who to trust. If she makes wrong choices a little boy might die.
Book Six in this series, The Good Father, is out in June. Today I am working on Book Seven.
Where Secrets Are Safe is a series, and yet, the books are independent. They center around a unique women's shelter - The Lemonade Stand - where secrets are safe. You see some recurring characters. Sometimes. Mostly each story is a journey unto itself. And a lot of them take place away from The Lemonade Stand. These are stories with twists. Stories that are intense. Some are suspenseful. Some are heart-wrenching. In all of them strength and goodness and joy are more than just carrots dangling on the end of a string. They are the light at the end of the tunnel. And sometimes the means to get to that light.
