Spring has sprung!

Spring has sprung & Easter is early this year. I’ve just returned from traveling down south, my forever home & happy place. I’m about to become a Gigi x2 any day now. Here’s a recent pic of my lil namesake, Sophie Louise, on the left with her bookish bestie on the right. Never too young to love books – or too old either! After a looonng winter, it’s wonderful to see things blooming. On my recent trip to visit my dear mom, I was blessed to cross middle Tennessee with the redbuds in bloom. A bit too early for dogwood, my personal favorite, but such a joy to see that burst of color. Redbud winter, actually, as the temps were so cold. But it was wonderful to feast at Cracker Barrel again, experience Buc-ee’s for the first time, & a hundred other delightful & challenging things.

Now that I’m home & back to work, I have much happening on the bookish front. My first novella is rolling out this summer. I’ve recently seen the cover & it’s a dream! I’m about to get galleys for my next full-length novel, another Scottish tale. I’ll be sharing the title & cover for both novella & novel in my newsletter soon. I’ve also been pondering my next novella & am at 38k on the Revolutionary War tale releasing in 2026.

For now, wishing you a wonderful start to spring!
