No, I didn't have a baby or get a package from UPS. That's the name of my new book from Love Inspired. A VERY SPECIAL DELIVERY just hit the stands so run out to Wal-Mart or any other bookstore and grab a copy. I'm getting some great reader mail already which is such a wonderful blessing to me. It's humbling that people take time to write an email to an author expressing their enjoyment of a book.

This particular story is my "SIDS" book. I think the topic has touched a cord in readers. Because SIDS had occured in my family, I worked very hard to handle the subject with sensitivity and to bring beauty out of a tragedy. Please let me know if I succeeded.

By the way, the cover is pink and lovely, very easy to spot on the shelf. If I wasn't such a klutz, I could show you. Instead, check out my website. My wonderful web mistress, Kelli McBride, has it up for you.

Happy Sunday!

My latest Silhouette Romance seems to be doing well with readers. At least, I hope so. I've been getting email asking if and when I'll have books for the other two characters, Teddi and Carson. The truth is, Silhouette originally planned to do all three books. That was before they decided to merge Silhouette Romance with Harlequin Romance. Now, the idea is limbo. I've written a book for new merged line, but Teddi and Carson are on the back burner. Too bad, because I LOVE both those characters. If you've read PRINCE INCOGNITO, you know that Teddi is a hoot. She's a free-spirit, a warm, funny, new age flake. So, so much fun to write. And Carson, he's a macho cowboy whose bark is worse than his bite. And boy, does he bark! I love writing those types and watching them fall in love. They always make such a loud explosion.

Anyway, thanks to all who've asked. Maybe someday. . .

Well, it's pretty obvious I couldn't figure out how to put my new book cover up here. Yes, I know. I did it once, but now I can't do again. Sigh. Someday I'm going to have time to figure this all out. :-)

Life is good. God is great. I am thankful for all the ways He shows us his love. A marvelous couple have adopted the little girl we were worried about in Ukraine. I am so thrilled for these little sisters to have found a forever family. Now, Gene and I are waiting for Him to guide us to our next adventure. Because with God, life is always exciting!

Cover, I hope


My last book for Silhouette Romance hit the stands today! PRINCE INCOGNITO is a Cinderella story about a klutzy private investigator wannabe and a gorgeous prince in hiding. I hope you'll pick up a copy and let me know if you enjoy it. If I can figure out how, I'll post a photo of the cover.
