Today’s the day that readers get to step into four different stories all bound together by a fairytale book. It has been such an honor… Continue reading It’s Release Day! Finding Ever After
I look forward to the ACFW conference every year. What in the world does ACFW stand for?

Happy Independence Day...or as my British friends say, "Happy Treason Day!" 🙂 In celebration of this American holiday, I thought I'd share some fantastic fiction that takes place during (or around) The Revolutionary War era.
