Long time. . .no see
I've been remiss. I've had news and just haven't been out here to share it. It has been exciting to release something new, and I've been enjoying it, but it's time to remind people, that something new will be coming up in April, too.

Releasing April 10 - The Scarred Heart

Sometimes, the greatest casualty of war is trust.

Lionel Cantrell has all but given up hope of finding his missing wife and child. He left them in the care of his parents and older brother while he went abroad to fight the French, only to return to a marriage in shambles, a daughter who cannot possibly be his, and his wife and son fled to parts unknown.

Until now. At a former comrade’s house party, Lion comes face to face with the object of his five-year search. Emma, whose cold reception is keenly edged with barely concealed panic.

When Emma’s perfect marriage to her childhood sweetheart crumbled into an unendurable year of humiliation and torment, she had no choice but to take their son—and her sanity—to build a new life under an assumed name. Her chance meeting with Lion threatens to expose long-buried emotional scars. And physical ones, the origins of which he must never know.

Emma’s stubborn refusal to explain why she won’t return home only fuels Lion’s relentless curiosity. So does their undeniable passion. Time is on his side, and his well of patience is deep. But Emma’s trauma runs far deeper…perhaps too deep for love to reach.
I'm in the midst of planning a trip to Washington, D.C. for 16 teens. Even though it won't happen until July, I'm trying to get things worked out now so I don't have to worry. I've never been good at stuff like this and, even though I do have help, I'm beginning to feel overwhelmed. It's NOT a good feeling. So, my goal for this week is to relax. My job's busyness is over in a week and a half, so I hope to get back to my planning after that.

Check back next week and I'll tell you how it went.
