February Escape

- My husband & I went south this month to visit the boys of summer. How wonderful to sit in the sunshine and listen to the crack of the bat.

Legends Field is one of my all times favorite places. The Yankees look very good and I’m predicting a pennant victory for 2008.


Snuggling in January

- Scooty and Shadow have the right idea this time of year. It is best to cuddle up on the couch and wait for spring. This month I wanted to share some good news. The anthology collection: A WESTERN WINTER WONDERLAND was a Top Ten Book on eHarlequin.com for the week of December 15, 2007. Thank you to all my readers who picked up the book online and wrote me to say how much they enjoyed Fallen Angel.
