Wedding bells ringing?

A friend in Iowa emailed me saying "You didn't tell me!" Imagine my surprise to see a bridal shower invitation in my name. :)

No, I'm not getting married. It's a demo for Walmart stationery that happens to sort of have my name on it. (Note the Felica spelling.) But how funny is that?

Happy Earth Day 2015!

Today, April 22, is Earth Day. Do something, even if a little something, to help sustain this planet we call home.

Need some ideas?

Plant native flowers or plants.

Pick up trash on your street.

Join or volunteer with your local clean city board or commission.

Take a class or workshop on sustainability.

Plant a tree.

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle

Use reusable bags and totes instead of plastic.

If we all do something, we can make good thing happen today and for the future.

Driving with the top down

I spent a wonderful weekend at the Southern Women's Show in Richmond, Va. There were lots of really cool vendors, giveaways and activities, including test driving a Chevrolet. When the guy said 'around the track' I was totally jazzed and ready to roll because the show was at the Richmond International Raceway. But my visions of lapping the NASCAR track where Jimmie Johnson races were dashed when he said not on the track, but around it meaning the city streets that surround the complex.

Ah, well. My NASCAR dreams will have to wait for another day. But let me tell you this, the test drive of a red 2015 Camaro was sweet.

Can't wait for May!

May brings pretty flowers, warm temperatures ... and my birthday! This year, there's also something else I'm looking forward to. I'm on countdown now until the May release of my new Love Inspired novel in the Cedar Springs series.

Doctor Spring Darling has everything she needs. A wonderful family and a busy job helping the children of Cedar Springs, North Carolina. She's given up on adding love to that mix. Until the moment David Camden and his adorable son appear in her exam room. Spring assumes David is another down-on-his-luck single parent at the free clinic—but looks can be deceiving. Because David has a job—he's the architect proposing a new development in the middle of Spring's land! When the truth is revealed, can Spring find a way to keep both her home and the blessing of new love?

I couldn't attend the 2015 Romance Slam Jam in Dallas, but I am there in spirit. Read, write and party on, writers and readers!

Thanks to author Denise Jeffries for posting this pic from the conference!

More snow?! Really?!

Here's what it looked like last week. It's been snowing steadily today -- what the meteorologist's said would be "a dusting" -- and four-six inches is still on the way Wednesday night and into Thursday.

Where's spring?

Tracks in the snow. It was fun to see the animal tracks as well, rabbit and raccoon tracks.

Frozen creek in the back -- but not frozen enough to walk on.

The novel featured Roger McKenzie and his choir, The Triumphant Voices of Praise.

Check out the new cover Dafina Books has created. "Testimony" will be available in stores and via online retailers in August 2015. Mark your calendars!
