Happy Fall! This is my favorite season! Everything smells of apples and cinnamon, and the weather is cooler, so I’m back in my jeans and sweaters! And while fall might mean things are slowing down, things are moving in high gear for me!
If you’re not on any of my social media, you might have missed my first movie about my trip to the Romance Writers’ Conference in San Antonio this year. You can check it on YouTube. I know, you can hear me say the word ‘three’ a couple times. I’ve said it before…Spielberg isn’t nervous! I’ll try to get better!
Okay, onto book news!!
Last year's, A Valley Ridge Christmas won a Holt Medallion Award and I found out on Monday that it won a Golden Leaf Award!
This month, the first book in a new series hits the stands. Here are a few things to know…there really is a statue of George Washington in Waterford, PA. Wait, I make movies now. I can show you! YouTube Yes, I can hear you agreeing, Spielberg isn’t nervous.
I'm so excited to introduce you to Cupid Falls…but let me give it a shot:
A new town. A new legend. A new Christmas romance.
Kennedy Anderson loves Cupid Falls, Pennsylvania. Ever since moving there as an orphaned teenager, she’s worked hard to carve out a place for herself in the tight-knit community. Now she’s mayor and owner of the town’s flower shop. But she also has a big secret…and months to figure out how to break the news to the father.
Lawyer Malcolm Carter has always been the golden boy of Cupid Falls—until he discovers the one night he spent with the girl-next-door turned out to have a lifetime of consequences. Now, the mother of his child wants nothing to do with him, and he’s gone from someone who is admired to persona non grata as the town rallies behind its mayor.
Malcolm has always known what he wants. But now as Christmas approaches, he’ll have to discover a way to show Kennedy that she could find the only thing she’s ever really wanted—a true home—with him. Convincing her will take the help of Cupid Falls’ quirky residents…and a bit of holiday magic.
Harlequin has reissued Unexpected Gifts this Christmas in a new volume called The Baby Gift. If you never read this first book in my Whedon, PA series, you've got another chance!
The story was inspired by all the years I volunteered with our local Teen Parenting program!

Finally, I want to thank everyone for the amazing support forJust One Thing.I know that a few book clubs are featuring it…locally I’m a guest speaker for a couple! Thank you everyone who bought, read it and reviewed it. Thank you everyone who passed it on to friends and relatives. Thank you…well, just thanks! I’m so lucky to have so many people who’ve followed my books from comedy, to sweet romance, to comedic mysteries, to books like Just One Thing which is women’s fiction-romance (I’m using the term WOMANCE. Yep, you heard it here first). I am so very lucky!
