Happy Easter to All!

The story of Easter is the story of God's wonderful window of divine surprise.  ~Carl Knudsen

Easter is one of my favorite holidays. It heralds the beginning of spring ... new life ... and new beginnings.  When I found this quote, I immediately loved it. The idea of God's wonderful window of divine surprise is so uplifting and hopeful.  It beckons us to open our hearts to receive the gifts that life holds for us, if only we are willing to receive them. As it happens, divine surprise is a theme in Finding Felicity.  For Madeline, meeting Anthony was a divine surprise that changed her life, and his.  One never knows when a wonderful divine surprise is just around the corner.

I invite you to open yourself up to receiving a wonderful divine surprise ... what could it be?!

Kristin Hannah Comes to Raleigh!

Today was a great day!  Kristin Hannah, one of my favorite authors, was in town for a reading of her new book, Night Road.  I love Kristin's books - Magic Hour is really a great read!  It's impossible to pick a favorite of Kristin's!

Kristin was so gracious and down-to-earth ... it was a wonderful event and so many of her fans - including me - showed up! 

Meeting someone like Kristin gives me hope that it IS possible to make a living at writing :)  Write on!
