I was thrilled to be invited as one of the featured authors at the Civil War Reenactment scheduled for this coming weekend in Ridgetop, Tennessee!
Most of my books are set either right before the war, during the war, or after the war at the time of Reconstruction. When I first started writing, agents, other authors, and publishers cautioned me against choosing this time period to set my stories. However, if you’ve followed my blog, you know that a dream inspired my first series, and from then on, I’ve felt compelled to write about the struggles this nation went through during that difficult time. I believe wholeheartedly that although this was a sad time for our country, it’s crucial that what happened isn’t forgotten. Hopefully, by remembering these events, we can learn from them and prevent them from happening again. If you’re in the area this weekend, come by and experience something you’ll not soon forget!
Here are the books I’ll be featuring!

I’ve lived in Tennessee for almost thirty years, and I have a confession to make… I’ve never been to the State Fair. I’ve attended the Robertson County Fair several times, and it was great, but I’ve heard that it pales in comparison to the enormous state-wide event.
Needless to say, I’m super excited to be attending the State Fair this coming Sunday. What finally got me off my tail and headed in that direction? An invitation to participate in Author’s Day! If you live in Tennessee, (or even if you don’t and want to travel to a fun, family event), I hope you’ll join me at the fair.
More than most anything, I love to meet my readers in person! It’s hard to explain how happy it makes me to know that my books have been enjoyed by someone other than myself, and that the characters seem real to other people, too.
I’m attending a weekend-long convention in Nashville, TN at the Airport Marriott, March 16th-18th. A Weekend with the Authors is a time for authors and avid readers to mingle and share ideas centered around the love of books. Registration for this event is open until March 10th. For more info, check out their site. http://www.aweekendwiththeauthors.com/
If you can’t attend all three days, be sure to mark your calendars for Saturday, March 17th, from 3:00-6:00 pm. Not only is it St. Patrick’s Day, but it’s also the day of the book signing. This part of the event is open to the public and FREE! Come and meet nearly 50 multi-genre romance writers! There will be plenty of books to peruse and purchase, plus some fun giveaways.
Be sure to stop by my table and check out the special rates on my boxed sets. The boxes are quite pretty in their own right. You can also enter to win a mega goody basket that includes the complete 7-book set of the Southern Secrets Saga. No purchase necessary to enter, but you must be present to win!
