Recently I was asked why I write sweet romance. My automatic answer came out without me even thinking about it—I read for enjoyment, and to me that is once upon a time and happily ever after.

Again, she asked why? Years ago I heard someone say the below standard, and have always believed it. Watch your thoughts because they become your words. Watch your words because they become your actions. Watch your actions because they become your habits. Watch your habits because they become your character. Watch your character because it becomes your destiny. On to reviews for this week…. Robinson keeps this tale fast moving with those twists and turns that always make a book fun. Labels: great reviews , standards to live by , why I read romance. My garden is busy producing vegetables, and the branches on the fruit trees are hanging low from the weight of the apples and plums.
I enjoy harvesting the goods and stacking the freezer for the winter months, and it always amazes me how those little plants can grow so quickly and produce so bountifully. Even more remarkable are those little volunteer guys—seeds left lying dormant from last year or the year before who sprout with life and run a challenging race with the ones who were so gently tendered and protected from frosty spring mornings. Those volunteer ones remind me of the flower in the sidewalk or the concrete medium of a busy freeway.
They gallantly prove where there is a will, there is a way. Of course, with my love of westerns and history, my thoughts then go to the pioneers—those resilient men and women who courageously braved the unknown to plant themselves in the Wild West of North America and bloom. All I can say is take advice from those little plants, and bloom where YOU are planted!

I now have peppers and tomatoes coming out my ears! Tuesday, August 4, On the road again We are heading back down to Kansas this week for a family reunion. Today I had the most awesome experience. I spoke to a book club in the cities. The club had chosen An April to Remember as a club read. It was so cool to talk to all these people who had read the book and had specific questions about Jerek and April and the Sultana disaster.
They wanted to know how I learned about the Sultana, why I wrote about it, and a million other questions. I invited my mother to attend with me, and she too had a great time.
They had questions for her as well, the most common being how it felt to be the mother of an author. The picture is Isabelle trucking across our front yard in her jeep. My DH thinks she takes after her grandmother, we can't get her out from behind the wheel either. Tuesday, July 28, Party and Reviews.
