Good morning, all!

Thanks so much for inviting me to guest blog on your great site. And on the very first day of my new novel’s release. How cool is that? It’s been a long time since I had a book out, so it’s kind of like going through the whole first time thing again. I find myself really looking forward to seeing it on the shelves and hearing what people think of it.

I’ve heard from lots of readers who want to know what I’ve been doing for the past two years, since-it seems-I haven’t been writing, but actually the opposite is true. For most of career, throughout the early years in historical romance and even beyond that, I pretty much wrote one book a year. That’s the schedule I like best. It allows me plenty of time to research, edit, refine, and still work through my own very important TBR pile. But when it came to Firefly Lane, that old reliable schedule just didn’t work. Quite simply, I found a story that captured me more deeply than any I’ve written before, and I couldn’t do it justice in my normal amount of time. Some books just take a little longer to write, and such was the case with Firefly Lane.


Don’t you just love that title? I think it really captures the mood and flavor of the novel. Anyway, let me give you a little insider’s peek at what the book’s about. Firefly Lane is the kind of book I’ve been longing to read lately: a big, emotional, women’s novel about the power and durability of friendship. The older I get, the more I realize how important our friendships are. Careers and kids and men come and go, but our girlfriends are always there, getting us through the toughest of times. And while I’d love to think of myself as one of the Sex and The City girls, the truth is, I’m a bit more Northern Exposure, so my characters are down to earth women who make a pact as kids to stay BFF forever, and it holds true for most of their lives -until a terrible act of betrayal threatens everything.

More than a coming of age novel, Firefly Lane is for anyone who ever drank Boone’s Farm apple wine while listening to Abba or Fleetwood Mac or Pink Floyd. It’s the story of a generation of women who were both blessed and cursed by choices.about promises and secrets and betrayals – and ultimate about the one person who really truly knows you-and knows how to hurt-and heal you. And since I’m a romance writer from way back and a romantic at heart, there are love stories woven throughout. One in particular, which I believe is particularly powerful and poignant.

Thanks for the opportunity to weigh in to your great discussion! My best to everyone–
