I am super excited to chat with award-winning author Laurie Alice Eakes

Ok.. so… y’all know that I simply love kissing books! Love. Them. That’s why I’m thrilled today to be able to chat with the KISSING QUEEN herself – Julie Lessman!!!

I’m excited today to introduce y’all to Gerri Bauer, a debut author for Franciscan Media’s new fiction line. A Catholic historical romance, At Home in Persimmon Hollow intrigues me right from its premise. After all, you don’t often find “Catholic”, “historical”, and “romance” all coming together in one book. At Home… Read more »
Did I mention yet that The Hesitant Heiress is now available in PAPERBACK???!!!!??? I feel sure I did. In fact, I know I did – my Hesitant Heiress review To continue the celebration festivities, I invited author (and ACFW Carol Award finalist) Dawn Crandall to stop by the blog for a chat. She’s… Read more »

Once upon a time, I met a supercute guy at college and he became my best friend. We got so tired of telling people that we were never going to date each other that we decided to just go ahead and date each other. We were married a year later… Read more »
My husband (let’s call him… Eric!) is one of 12 grandchildren on his mother’s side alone. TWELVE. Now, you have to understand – I come from a very small immediate and extended family. One brother, four cousins (and I rarely saw them, except my brother of course). So, when I… Read more »
After my interview with Melanie Dickerson where I admittedly drooled all over both of us, my husband politely informed me that I am allowed one flailing/gushing/drooling interview. That was his kind and gracious way of telling me that I had met my quota. Perhaps I should have begged him for… Read more »
Yes, that’s right! You read correctly. MELANIE DICKERSON is chatting with me today! I have pinched myself so many times that I’m starting to bruise lol. You all. Melanie. Dickerson.
