Whether you discovered my books recently, or you have been a fan for a while, I am very grateful that you are reading and enjoying my books.
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peak into my life as a writer. I also hope 2017 brings you good books, good friends and a few delightful surprises.
P.S. My goals for 2017 include finishing a first draft of the third and final book in the Wildflower trilogy, as well as the sequel to Temple Secrets.
