Easter Hoppin' Blog Hop - DAY 2


Howdy "Peeps"!!

It's day two of the Easter Hop Giveaway started by JoJo's Book Corner and lushbookreviews, and I've decided to sweeten the pot a little...I'm adding a $10 Gift Card for Amazon or B&N to my giveaway! All you have to do is leave a comment before midnight on April 17th. I will announce the winner in my normal post (which is a really good one this week) on the Meet an Author Monday Blog Hop!

For those of you who are new and just stopping by on the hop, I thought that it would be a good idea to introduce myself...

I'm a Stay-at-Home-Mom of Irish Twins (actually born in the same year) who keep me busy all the time. In between their various activities, I discovered that I wanted to be a writer when I grew up.

My first book was a collaborative effort with Alison Oburia called Passion Fish. While working on Passion Fish, I really found my voice in a strong female and her equally strong man. So from there I thought that I should write what I love, and I do love a man in uniform...and a Navy SEAL is the ultimate for me. That thought became Indivisible.

I want to share one of my favorite lines from Indivisible:

Charlie tried to fight the tears she felt welling behind her eyes.
“Let me tell you something about my boys. Don’t get me wrong—I love both Tyson and Gideon more than anything in this world. But I learned long ago that I have to love them without expectations.” - Evelyn Cooper

Loving without expectations is what life is about!

Thanks for stopping by today - tomorrow I will share an exerpt!

  1. I'm not sure which post to comment on, so I picked this one since no one is here. haha. Did you say you had two children born in the same year but not at the same time? Girl, You Crazy? I have room to talk, I have two girls that are 18 months apart and then the next two are 2 years apart. Now they're all teens! UGH! Anyway, thanks for the giveaway and I follow your blog.
