Road Trip & Summer News

What a gorgeous August we’re having here in central Illinois! Mild weather, no bugs, and sunshine nearly everyday. I’ve been taking advantage of the unseasonably lovely weather to play in my garden, but starting tomorrow I’m off on a road trip with my good friend, Jade Lee. We’ll be driving to Pennsylvania, spending a week at a Bed and Breakfast at a writing retreat with three other writer friends and then driving back. On the way home we hope to stop by several bookstores to take a break and sign stock. Stay tuned!

I have wonderful news! I’ve just signed a contract with my publisher for a new contemporary romance under my alter ego, Julia Harper. I’m writing it right now and it’s tentatively scheduled for release summer of 2014.

In other news I’ll be appearing at Barbara Vey’s Reader Appreciation Luncheon in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, April 26, 2014. Many other authors are attending, including the wonderful Debbie Macomber, who will be the luncheon speaker. I hope to see you there!
