About

I'm most recently a writer.  In the six plus decades of my life, I've been a wife, mother, grandmother, Jill of all trades though mistress of but a few, and most of the time pretty content with my lot.  As a much younger person, I believed I was called to write, but life and living distracted me for most of those decades.  An unwilling transplant from the South,  twenty years ago I unintentionally landed in the geographical center of the US.  Writing came about in part due to the unwillingness, I expect.  When caring for family, gardening, and renovating a century-old house failed to provide sufficient creative outlets, I turned to the one thing I always intended to do.  Eight titles later, I'm grateful I found myself while Lost in the Plains!

We Need a Little Christmas

Like I've said before, not everything calls for a song title, but here's a case where it's too good to pass up.  The one above is from one of my all time favorites shows, Mame.  To this day I can see the cast of our community theater production ,including my best friend Nancy in the title role and my husband, dancing around the stage fighting the cruel twists of fate with some out of season holiday cheer.  And it worked!  There may be a few true Scrooges out there, whose spirits can't be lifted by the thought of past and future Christmases, but remember, Scrooge became a convert to the true joys of Christmas, too.

With that in mind, I decided that now might be the ideal time to offer Christmas at Valley Rise at a special price, just to give you a refreshing little break from the heat and hectic schedules.  All this month, you can download this 172 page novella to your Kindle for just .99!

Christmas at Valley Rise, as you might suspect, takes a look at the characters from the series during their annual Christmas celebration, but in the year 2012, long after we left them in the early 1970's at the end of Offered for Love.  If you've read the series, it's a great way to catch up with the Moss family after four decades, and if you haven't read the novels, it's a nice introduction into the world of Valley Rise.  Either way, it's a great deal on a short, sweet read.
