I love God. I love the sweet romance of young love and the enduring romance of a long marriage. BUT...
I also love stories of second chances, new beginnings, new hope!!!!
And that's why I write sweet books, because I want to see folks succeed, even after life has handed out its share of smackdowns.
Because there is raw joy in life, great hope in God and I have an optimism in my heart that sings each new day.
It's cold and dark here, but I never look at the dark while I'm writing, I hold tight and wait for the dawn to burst through my east window. AND I LOVE IT!!!! Sometimes it creeps in, when clouds are deep and gray.
And sometimes it fills the sky with amazing light, color, breadth and depth. And then I run like a madwoman with my little Sony camera (a gift from youngest son) and I snap pictures of dawn and post them on facebook because God's beauty was meant to be shared!
I get that most men aren't like my fictional heroes. Some of them need more instruction than others, but then again, most women aren't the young, slim heroines we like to read about, either! And that's okay, that's why they call it fiction.
But if these stories help folks to see themselves.... or see hope.... or feel God's presence in their lives....
Well, that's the blessing in all this!
