Do you enjoy reading?

I do. I love to curl up with a good book and get lost in its pages. I also love to write a story that captures my heart. Right now I’m at the tail end writing a novel and can’t wait to find out how it ends. Okay, I know how I want it to end, but sometimes the characters have minds of their own.

This weekend I’m teaching a workshop at the Christian Writer’s Seminar in Castro Valley. I’ll be speaking about writing women’s fiction, a topic I’m passionate about. This year, I’ll be talking about The Heart Stone, my newest release, as well as books from other published authors in this genre. Each book has a unique hook and intriguing characters. Come to my workshop to hear excerpts and discover what is being published today!
