My friend JP Barnaby has a new book releasing July 11, and this is what she said about it. “On March 7, 1992 my daughter Kaitlyn was born with a pulmonary atresia, the same condition that affects little Robbie in A Heart for Robbie – because Robbie is her story. I wasn’t able to give her the same happy ending in real life, so I wrote her one. This book is her legacy.” Waiting for someone else’s child to die so yours can live is the worst kind of Hell. Celebrated Young Adult author Julian Holmes pits the heroic characters … Continued
Hello all. Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter morning. I’m currently away from home at Rainbowcon and Dominic is at home, spending the day with my family. I was very lucky in that Dominic was my first true love and we’ve been together now for over twenty years. So he’s what I’m thankful for and truly blessed with on this Easter Day. I am participating in the Rainbow Gold Reviews Blog Hop. http://rainbowgoldreviews.wordpress.com/2014/04/14/easter-hunt-search-for-hidden-words-and-phrases-on-participating-blogssitespages-and-win/

A Courageous Ride is releasing March 31 and I am already getting a wonderful response from the early reviews. Both Sid Love and Mrs. Condit and Friends have given it wonderful reviews. With this story, I decided I wanted to create two different characters form two different worlds, throw them together and see what happened. What I got was a story that really spoke to me about the power of love and deciding what was truly important. I also got to explore the therapeutic aspects of love and healing on many levels. Aspiring orchestra conductor Marshall is exhausted after months of … Continued
One Good Deed releases tonight at midnight from Dreamspinner Press. This story is special to me and its one of Dominic’s favorites. Many of the themes in this story were his idea and I’m very happy with it. I hope you will be too. Blurb Luka Krachec immigrates to the United States to find his cousin dead and his cousin’s wife hospitalized after a terrible accident. He meets Peter Montgomery at the funeral. The American seems nice and captures Luka’s attention when he offers to help him with his English. Peter has spent most of his life believing he … Continued
Tonight at midnight is the release of A Daring Ride. When I was writing this story I wanted to explore the idea of a double life to a degree. So at the beginning of the story Simon is in the closet about his bull riding to his family. He’s in the closet in other ways as well. Mom and dad own a Christian bookstore chain. So climb into the chute and hold on for the ride… If you dare. http://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=4183
Simon “Frizz” Frizzell sneaks away to the rodeo on weekends, and it’s not until after he wins a buckle that he tells his parents about his bull-riding. He knows they won’t approve of his choice of sport, but his parents own a Christian bookstore, and he couldn’t possibly tell them the whole truth: he’s gay. And so are some of his rodeo friends, like Dante and Ryan, and Jacky—a young man he wishes could have been more than a one-night stand. When Simon sets his sights on his dreams, he finds work with Dante and Ryan, and bumps into Jacky … Continued
Love Comes in Darkness, the follow up to Love Comes Silently, released at midnight last night. This story really truly touched my heart.
As he answers the Skype call, Spencer’s face appears in the window. Grainy, but not freezing, his slow easy smile is shy and tentative, like he’s not sure what’s going to happen. The rapid tapping on the desktop betrays his nerves, but when JP’s corresponding picture comes up on his screen, he grins, ready for the interview.
Justin Briggs can shout out directions all day on his job as a traffic cop, but put him in front of a hot guy, specifically firefighter Rock Sparks, and he clams up.
