Spring is here. Enjoy The Seadog: a love story, for free.


As pure as can be - these backlit cherry blossoms make my heart sing. There's just something so sublime about sunlight filtering through petals. Here are a few more shots from my yard. 

So, how am I doing with the process of losing the love of my life? I'm slowly healing. I'm staying positive. I'm letting the beauty of spring buoy me up. I know it will take forever. But having a loving family to support me makes all the difference in the world. And of course, having my dog, Biscuit. He is with me 24/7 and is such a comfort. 

We discovered that the old invisible fence we had for 12 years for Balto and Amber is still functioning! So Biscuit is in training. He's doing well, but his "chase the ball" instincts are still stronger than his aversion to the flags. And he does NOT like those flags, most particularly the sound that comes when he gets close. He cried the two times it happened! (he didn't get shocked at all, just horrified at the sound that came from his collar, poor little guy!)  

I'm working on updating For Keeps: a green marble mystery. In it, Sam's wife, Rachel, is murdered, and he has to go back in time to reverse it. But the weird part is how I wrote about Sam's loss so explicitly without having really lost my wife. Now it all feels too familiar. It's hard to work on this part, but I'm pushing through. In the book, Sam gets her back again. I wish it were true in my life...

I'm sharing another eBook for free this week. It happens to be one of my favorites - set in Brewster on Cape Cod. It's the third book in the Paines Creek Beach love story series and can easily be read as a standalone. But there's much more than a typical "love story" in this - I couldkn't help but keep the mysteries and the suspense out of it. ;o) Help yourself and let me know what you think of it!



***Winner of the 2016 Best Indie Book Award, romance category*** 



A mysterious man with no past, a troubled young woman running from hers…and a powerful love that may heal them both. 

Scout Vanderhorn has lost her mother, her home, and all hope of security. In a desperate bid to escape her abusive stepfather, she travels to a seaside mansion on Cape Cod in search of the real father she never knew—and finds a secret sister who welcomes her into the family, troubles and all. But it’s not long before trouble comes looking for Scout. 

Unaware of his past, or even his own name, Jack Remington is lost. He spends his days scavenging for survival and compulsively searching the seas in his battered old kayak. At night, alone in his beach cave, he’s haunted by nightmares. But from the moment he glimpses Scout, a powerful connection is forged that begins to bring him back from the brink. 

Neither expects to fall for the other, but Scout and Jack can’t deny their explosive mutual attraction. Can this love remake a broken man and save a woman with nothing to lose…before the past drowns them in the oncoming storm? 

Set on beautiful Cape Cod, The Seadog is a story of trauma and redemption, of mysteries and revelations -- and above all, the incredible power of love.

It's been gorgeous weather here in the Finger Lakes region of NY. Today it's going to 80! On May 3rd! I love it.

Allison and I got the peas planted yesterday and we bought our annuals for the porches. I love the colors and fragrances! We are excited about potting them today. 

Let me know how you're doing when you can.

Bless you all,
