#ThrowbackThursday Wedding Inspiration for ONE SUMMER NIGHT

I’ve always been a beach girl. Growing up on Long Island, a lot of my summer was spent on Jones Beach and now that I’m a Jersey Girl, I spend as much time as I can down the Jersey Shore. When the idea came to me for the At the Shore series, there was no doubt that there would be a wedding on the beach for one or more of my Jersey Girls. Years ago, hubby and I attended a fabulous wedding in California and as I started to write the wedding scenes for ONE SUMMER NIGHT, I remembered that West Coast wedding and thought about how a New Jersey version might look. Here’s a photo from the California wedding. Gorgeous, isn’t it?

#WisdomWednesday A Book Opens a Door to New Worlds

We didn’t have a lot of money when I was younger, but we had books and public libraries. I looked forward to the walk to get new books every week or a visit from the bookmobile during the summer months. Whenever I opened the pages of a new book, I was transported to a new world and I loved exploring all those interesting places and learning new things. Some might say I was a nerd and to that I say “Nerds Rock!”

#ManCandyMonday Suit or Surfer? You decide!

So what’s sexier? A man in a suit (or getting out of it) or a sexy surfer dude? That’s the choice I had when writing the Pierce brothers, Owen and Jonathan, for the At the Shore Contemporary Romance Series.

Owen is Mr. Suit, all buttoned up and responsible until he does the unthinkable and falls in love with the daughter of his father’s bitter enemy in ONE SUMMER NIGHT.

Jonathan, Mr. Surfer Dude, is the rebel who is always in search of something new and different until he meets a woman who has planned every aspect of her life – except him of course. Look for his story and Connie’s in WHAT HAPPENS IN SUMMER.

So what’s sexier? Or are the Pierce brothers both sexy men?

#ThrowbackThursday – Me and my Grandma

My grandma, like my mom, was a strong woman. A real role model, a great cook, and just a fascinating woman. I miss her and my mom every day. This is a picture of her with me when I was just a wee baby! I was named after her in part. My real first name is Caridad de las Nieves, but when I became a citizen, I took Nieves as my middle name since I couldn’t keep my whole first name.

#WisdomWednesday – Take the First Step

It’s hard to think about taking that first step into the unknown. Whether it’s a new relationship, a new book, or even revisiting something old that you’ve been trying to forget, it takes courage. But taking that first step is a necessary part of a journey that could be truly rewarding. So as hard as it is, take that first step.
