#FunFriday ONE SUMMER NIGHT from the At the Shore Romance Series

On a rainy and slightly chill Friday like today, my thoughts always turn to warm sunny days on the Jersey Shore. Sigh. Seems like the perfect time to give you a little teaser from One Summer Night, #1 in the At the Shore Contemporary Romance series.

This Romeo and Juliet story was such fun to write and I hope you’ll enjoy it as well and like getting to meet all the smart and determined heroines and sexy heroes in the series.

Ocean Grove Memories & At the Shore #ThrowbackThursday

The fictional town in the At the Shore Contemporary Romance series, Sea Kiss, is actually a composite of several of my favorite towns along the Jersey Shore. For those familiar with the area, you may see descriptions of areas that match those of a particular town. It was fun for me to take the best of my favorite towns and create Sea Kiss.

Today’s throwback is to memories of one of my favorite towns – Ocean Grove. Don’t be surprised if the characters in the books also visit a cute little surf and skate shop there!

#WriteWed To Blog or Not to Blog?

Lately there has been a lot of discussion about blogs and whether people still read them or comment on them. In fact, lots of big online sites have eliminated the comments feature not because it incited sometimes unpleasant discussions, but because of a lack of discussion.

I wonder whether people still like reading blogs like mine, where I share some fun things, some serious, and of course, some book info. I love books. I love to write them and I love to read them.

I wonder if you’d like to see some different things, so here’s your chance. Let me know what you’d like to see on the blog!

Who’s in charge? You or the cat? #FridayFun

As a cat owner, I can say that I rarely get my way with either of the two cats in our family. However, the two cats in my house sometimes listen to my husband and daughter, but not to me. So sad.

So when I saw this, it was like “Wow.” A cat that does what it’s owner says?

Have a great Friday and weekend!

Easter Sunday #ThrowbackThursday

With Easter just a few days away, it reminds me of all the Easter Egg hunts we used to have with the kids when they were younger. We kept them up until the kids were way into their teens since it was so much fun.

Hopefully we’ll soon have another generation who can participate!

This is a photo from one of those long ago Easter Egg hunts.
