Hurricane Harvey


Many of you who follow me through this newsletter and on various social media platforms know that one of my favorite getaway spots for some serious writing is a friend’s condo in Port Aransas, TX. Hurricane Harvey made landfall on August 25th, 2017 just a couple of miles from this condo. The entire city, as well as this building, sustained a lot of damage, so I won’t be going back there anytime soon. The photos I’ve seen of the aftermath are heartbreaking.

Port Aransas is the setting for my novella, The Shell Collector’s Daughter. My friends and I had some wonderful trips to ‘Port A,’ as the locals call it, for R,R & R — Research, Rest and Relaxation. It’s a special place just right for the special girl in my book.

Carianna’s story is a heartwarming tale which follows one woman’s journey as she navigates the many types of love God gifts to us. You may be able to catch it on sale this month. I’m running price promotions November 2, 16 and 24. 🙂

About the Book

Carianna isn’t like other twenty-six-year-old women. She’s never been on a date, never experienced the euphoria of a first kiss, and certainly never been in love. Can a man’s heart speak to hers in a way that she can understand? And if so, will any man believe that she sings with the angels and has tea with God? Will they see the star dust twinkling in her eyes or hear the secret whispers of the ocean in a sea shell?

Dominic is grieving the death of his mother, so he welcomes a job opportunity that takes him to a beach community near the Texas coast. But what begins as a distraction and change of scenery shifts into a healing journey filled with discovery. Amidst his heartache, Dominic finds love in a beautiful and unexpected way when he meets Carianna—the shell collector’s daughter.

But can Dominic convince Carianna’s father to lift his protective wings and allow Carianna to soar into the life that God meant for her? And will Carianna hear Dominic’s heart speaking to hers in a way that she understands?
