Tell us whether you’d like to be stranded on an island, cold or not, and with whom!
I got my story idea from a Halibut fishing trip I took off Homer Spit, Alaska in 2012. The deckhand on the boat was a pretty redhead with some serious skills fileting fish! She was spunky and so darned cute I had to put her into a story. And we’ve seen shows about the Coast Guard guys rescuing people in Alaska. Yummy heroes, dangerous waters—a combination that makes the heart pound! Elle James
I’ve been writing like crazy, but Sunday was too pretty to waste indoors. So I loaded Chewy into a front pack and climbed on my new bicycle and went for a lovely ride. It was also Mother’s Day, a day celebrating our mothers. Mine is great. She gave me the gift of life, creativity, perseverance and joy. As a mother, I’m blessed with three wonderful children who are now my best friends. I hope your day was lovely and you got some of this glorious sunshine!
Please join me at the Pythian Castle in Springfield, Missouri on May 4th (this Saturday) for the Books in the Ballroom book signing! I’ll be there with a good variety of my books for your pleasure from 10:00-4:00. I hope to see some of you there.
Ever watch that Charlie Brown cartoon where they sing that song NO DOGS ALLOWED? I heard that song in my head sitting outside a restaurant in Galveston last weekend while the rest of my family had lunch. But it was a lovely sunny day. Chewy and I enjoyed a walk along the wharf and my family brought me fried shrimp to eat in the car. I’m glad to see there are more places allowing dogs. I hate leaving my little guy in a crate (he’s not crate trained) and he’s getting old (13.5 years old) so he doesn’t understand and gets extremely anxious. I know he’s not around for much longer, so I try to make his life happy. Do you have a pet you love like family?
