Although spring is technically
only a few days away, it is feeling like the heart of
winter around here. Drove yesterday through a
horrible snow storm, and was reminded just how much
mother nature has the upper hand. But there is hope!
Early bloomers winter aconite (a cute little yellow
flower) and snow drop are poking their heads through
the snow to greet the sun. Personally, I'm ready for
a little of that myself!
The big news around here is
that we're taking on a brand new adventure and
leaving Manhattan for Connecticut. I know, now
you're singing the theme song from Green Acres. Me
too! But I think it's going to be a lot of fun.
Our new house was built in 1802--when Thomas
Jefferson was president--so we'll only be the newest
chapter in a long history.
At the moment, everything is
revolving around getting it ready to move in.
Nothing too earth shattering, but we are redoing the
floors, painting the inside and refurbishing the
fireplace. And for this Texas girl--adding A/C.
But all with an eye to maintaining the original
integrity of the home. It really is a beautiful
place! We've always wanted an antique home, so
we're really excited. But I'm sure we'll have many
challenges to share! Hopefully, the next time I
write it'll be from Connecticut with a view of my
new garden out the window.
On the writing front, Escape, a
new Last Chance novella, is out in e-format now.
Check on Barnes and Noble and Amazon to buy.
Here's the back cover copy:
One of the most sought after forensic
pathologists in the country, Tracy Braxton is at
the top of her game professionally, heading up
world renowned Braxton Labs. But on the
relationship front, the commitment-phobic Tracy is
batting zero. That is until she meets FBI agent
Seth, an admitted adrenaline junkie, works
on some of the FBI's most dangerous cases. And,
quite frankly, he's always assumed that any woman
in his life would come a distant second to his
career. Until he met Tracy. But when Seth tries
to take their relationship to the next level,
Tracy refuses to even consider the idea, instead
running for the sanctity of her lab.
Angry at himself for falling in love, Seth
is determined to drown his sorrows. But the more
he thinks about it, the more convinced he is that
they belong together. He heads for her lab, only
to find blood on the floor. And so with the clock
ticking, he must racing to save the only woman
he's ever loved.

Gotta say that with between
reading Rita entries (I'm not allowed to share, but
there were some really good ones!) and working on
the house, I haven't had a lot of time to do much
more than come home and collapse. I did read Roxanne
St. Clare's Barefoot in the Sand and thoroughly
enjoyed it. And like the rest of America I was glued
to Downton Abbey. And can't wait for the return of
Game of Thrones. I've got the new Julia London on
my night table. And am so looking forward to the
summer and Barbara Samuel's newest.
