18th Annual Heartsong Awards

Once again, I find myself in the top ten of this very cool reader’s poll award list. I’m so humbled that God is allowing me these victories.

The full list can be found at the Edit Cafe blog. But here’s how my books fared:

  • FAVORITE CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE –  Fine, Feathered Friend placed #7
  • FAVORITE CONTEMPORARY COVER - Fine, Feathered Friend placed #6 ; Crossroads Bay placed #5

Sure, I didn’t have anything to do with the cover art, but I’m still so pleased to have those books showcased in this way.

If I may, I’d like to thank some folks as if I’m dressed in a sequined Vera Wang gown and clutching a bronze statue.

Thank you, readers, for taking the time to vote for me. Without you, I would be back to filling myriads of notebooks and hiding them in drawers.

Thank you Heartsong Presents editor, JoAnne Simmons, who believes in my work enough to publish it.

Thank you to my husband, Jim, who has always believed in me and made it possible for me to write full time.

Finally, thank you to my Lord, my Rock, my Writing Partner, who holds my hand every day throughout this crazy process of bleeding onto the page.

Helloooo Joey!


My youngest son, Joey, lives in New York. He called tonight and said he was walking in Times Square and suggested we go to a live cam to find him. We did and the following is the result. We had a blast! He gave us a tour while we sat in our comfy house in Colorado.

His dad, Jim, maximized the window and then hit “print screen” and pasted into Word.


7th and Broadway: Joey is one of the five people clustered in the lower left-hand corner. The other four are policemen who are waving at us at Joey’s request. We think he confused them, but they were nice enough to comply.


46th and 7th Ave: We searched around and found this cam, then led Joey to it by telling him what the landmarks were. This is him, waving at us!



He’s talking to us via his ear piece. Notice that no one seems concerned that he’s talking to himself.




About done. He’s getting cold and needs to get on the subway.
