Between Here and There

MC_Drei-Finger-FaultierI am just realizing (or admitting) that I have taken quite a long break from my blog in April. Since this month ends this week, I thought I better post once more to break my sloth blogging cycle and update you on my writing status.

Yes, I have been busy…just not with blogging. I have read great books. I have tried to write a great book, and between here and there…I am finally getting somewhere. How’s that for non-specific? Continue reading

Lady Helen Finds Her Song

Lady Helen BannerThis newest story by Jennifer Moore was amazing. I’ve read a lot of her books, and they always make me smile. She writes great characters, fantastic settings, and believable romances that are usually set in the Regency period in the 1800’s.

Nelle Thompson lives a life of privilege during the turn of the century New York City.

Broken-hearted and riddled with insomnia, Nelle’s health begins a downward spiral. When a locked part of her heart blossoms around her cousin’s fiancé Mathew Janson, Nelle doesn’t know if she can endure one more heartbreak. Miss Pearl, owner of the local apothecary shop, becomes a mother figure to Nelle, but a fateful summer day has Nelle questioning everything she’s ever believed and wondering if she’ll ever love again.
