Howdy friends!

It’s almost springtime and I’m so very ready for warm, sunny days!

Winter brought a couple of opportunities for me that warmed my heart when I was invited to celebrate my sweet mamma’s life with other seniors.

Seniors in Dallas read my first book The Gospel According to Mamma for their February book club and later that month I brought paint by number sets and shared about my mamma’s love for them.

If you know other senior groups or facilities who you think might be interested in having me speak, do let me know. 

So what’s new with me?



My October beach retreat reservations are now available with rooms open for 12 women. There are three payment options – pay in full, make two payments or four payments. It does NOT cost more to make payments. The total cost for four heavenly oceanfront nights in Gulf Shores, Alabama filled with sister laughs and comradery is ONLY $595.

I have a combo special for my new book A Dachshund Tale and the My Furry Friend Keepsake Journal! $28 when purchased together. They retail at $18.95 bought separately. Both are hardcover with beautiful, playful full-color interiors. Both come with free gifts, too. BUY HERE 

I will soon begin sending out mailings to pet shops to introduce my book and journal in the hopes they will stock them in their stores. If you have a shop recommendation, please do share with me!



I have a pet loss article being published in the April issue of Grief Digest magazine. It tells my story with my precious Lady – when we first met to when we said good-bye. And you learn how writing about the lessons I learned from my sweet fur baby helped me and is still helping me cope with my sadness. You can read the article in the magazine’s online library HERE.



My first column was published in the February issue of the North Texas Farm & Ranch magazine. The column name is When a City Girl Goes Country. The magazine is published monthly. You can subscribe and read the online magazine with my monthly column FREE. www.ntfronline.com



A catalog featuring all of my products and services will soon be published. My main purpose with this catalog is reaching a long-desired goal for me! To offer my books and products wholesale to retailers! Here’s the cover design!



My next newsletter will announce the publication of Color Your World Jot Journals AND a new adult coloring book titled Color-n-Doodle Your World. Stay tuned! 


Onward we all go in our new year of adventures and lessons learned!  

See you in June with my next newsletter! Or keep up with me on my Facebook author page before then!
