"LOVE ON A LIMB" has a new all-season cover!

I'm very pleased to unveil 

"Love on a Limb's" 

new all-season cover! The book launched in November with a Christmas-themed cover, but readers have taken this powerful "marriage of necessity" story into their hearts with 92% of readers giving it a 5 star rating! Click the cover to pick up a copy. Paperbacks are also available.


Matthew Grayken is young, successful, and dying, which is why he’s about to propose to a total stranger. He isn’t interested in love. He needs a caregiver, a companion, and someone to be his legal voice when he can no longer speak for himself.

Lonely, compassionate nurse Mikaela Compton is intrigued by Matt Grayken’s tender request, but when their friendly marriage turns into love, she rejects the inevitability of Matt’s death and prays for a miracle instead.

Mikaela succeeds in reigniting Matt’s will to fight, but his body is losing the battle and he is suffering. She recognizes that her urgent need to save Matt has caused her to betray the fundamental promise she made him--to help him die peaceably. 

Matt needs a miracle, and Mikaela believes one is attainable, but she will need to leave him at the hour of his greatest need. She's about to learn that while love sometimes draws you close, it sometimes requires you to go out on a limb.

So Much More Than Just A Christmas Tree.

 I've been a blog slug the past few months. Work, family, holiday . . . you know. I'm going to try to do better at keeping in touch. 

The real blog killer is probably my VIP Readers Club. If you want to get all the free and discounted offers, that's where to head. I'll post here too, but as you've seen, I'm not always on top pf things over here.

I finally took the Christmas tree down. It's always a poignant moment for me, a marker that divides years and eras--(the years of paper and macaroni ornaments, the year I discovered the Pier One After-Christmas ornament sale and stocked up on a few elegant pieces, the year Tom's father passed away and we inherited some heirloom glass balls, and growing family years where the new ornaments reflected marriages, births, and developments in children's lives. Our new ornaments reflect our empty-nester period as we collect one new item from each place we visit--a silver Capitol from our nights in D.C., a silly beachcomber from a cruise, things from Niagara Falls, and Chicago's Tower.

The day I pack everything away is really my New Years beginning, when I evaluate all the previous year provided and taught, and losses we suffered through--of friends who've passed, of family members who may not be with us the next time we trim the tree. And then I imagine all the new year may bring. I wonder what changes will come to our family, friends, and nation, what adventures we'll have, and what trials, My thoughts move on to goals, some immediate, some more long term, and on to curiosity over what new adventures and memories will bring new ornaments to our tree in the coming year.


It's a big day. A slightly sad day that marks the final end of the holidays, when the sparkling tree no longer brightens the long winters' nights. With faith in God, we trust that hope and love and anticipation will bring their brightness instead, as we make each day meaningful, moving forward to the day when we open the Christmas ornament boxes and bins once more.
Wishing you a merry and bright year going forward.
