After publishing three books this year between March and June it’s time for my husband/illustrator and me to take a much-needed breather to get recharged. When we return, I will begin re-editing Hunting Mariah and writing its sequel. I have already begun a new mystery series for girls with the new characters from Book 5. It may not be published until the end of this year or beginning of next.

While we are gone, please look over all my books and check out previous posts. There’s more to read and enjoy until I return.

Don’t forget to visit Hugh Roberts’ marvelous blog where my book, An Angel Among Us, is featured for the month of June. While you are there check out all the fabulous posts he has to offer!

Thank you for stopping by. Happy reading!

Remember: Reading Gives You Wings to Fly!

Blessings & hugs!
