Check out lots of good mysteries at Plus, there's lots more good stories to come! Follow the blog so you don't miss any of them.

As for my writing, I've finished all proposals and can now concentrate on one historical romance while waiting to hear back on all the others. Would love to actually finish the first book in my Montana series. But sometimes, God has other plans.

Two wonderful historical romances. One when Texas became a state, the other during the turbulence of World War II. Both great reads!

October 13, 1792: White House cornerstone laid

The cornerstone is laid for a presidential residence in the newly designated capital city of Washington. In 1800, President John Adams became the first president to reside in the executive mansion, which soon became known as the "White House" because its white-gray Virginia freestone contrasted strikingly with the red brick of nearby buildings.

As promised, first day of my new blog format and I'm giving you an update on my writing. I have more editors looking at my work than I can count on one hand, so I'm hopeful. It was challenging going from first person cozy mystery to third person historical romance, but I think I've done it. Today, I will finish up the last proposal I am working on and send it to my agent. Then, it's on to finishing one of my other manuscripts. It will be nice to work for a while on only one book.

If you haven't ordered Fudge-Laced Felonies on ebook, you might want to go to while it's only .99. It should be available on Amazon soon, and Candy-Coated Secrets releases this week on Smashwords. Also .99. Not sure how long these deals will last.
