Granny Forks A Fugitive Is Here!

Granny_Forks_A_FugitivefandbAfter months of writing and editing Granny Forks A Fugitive is now out in paperback and on Kindle. This book was a labor of love. When I wrote the first paragraph I had an idea where I was going with the book. Then I got stuck. I knew what I wanted to portray. I wanted my reader’s to know why Granny turned into this crusty old lady that didn’t show her emotions. As an author of the book and the character, I wasn’t quite sure either.

The more I wrote about Granny this time the more I felt her pain of the past and the more I enjoyed her humor because that was what she used to get past her past and people that had betrayed her. It may seem odd that I fell in love with a character in my book.

We all have people that we love in our lives that have betrayed us. It cuts through everything that we believed and makes us mistrust our instincts. If someone we love can hurt us so deeply then we won’t trust anyone. Breaking the trust cuts deep to our soul. Some people recover and learn to trust again and others live their lives away from love and people because their heart was broken by someone they love.

The mystery in Granny Forks A Fugitive is tied to Granny’s past. I hope you read between the lines and feel what isn’t being said,and enjoy all that Fuchsia has to offer. Let the silliness take you away from the real world for a short time.

I had originally planned to stop the Fuchsia Series after the fourth book but I have such a close heart connection with all the characters now, I feel the series needs to continue and we need to explore that connection and let the community of Fuchsia entice new residents to the unique community.

I hope to not take as long as I did to get the next Fuchsia book out. Right now I am starting another series, yes, another quirky series that will take place in the community of Brilliant, Minnesota. Isn’t that brilliant, taking a community that is mentioned in Fuchsia and creating another book? We will see. Enjoy Granny and shout it out to the world that Granny is on another adventure. I appreciate my readers and the support you give me by spreading the word.

Granny always says in her book, “It’s on a need to know basis and you don’t need to know.” Well


Granny Gets Loud in Her Audiobook!

audiobook ga ghcIt is exciting to announce that Granny Hooks A Crook is now out in audio. It was amazing, even though I wrote the book, the little details of Granny’s personality, funny and serious, that my producer Priscilla Finch pulled out of Granny’s character while she was narrating it. I was so happy with Priscilla Finch interpretation, that Priscilla is in the process of producing Granny Skewers A Scoundrel in audio.

One might think that Granny is all fluff, but while listening I could hear some of the seriousness and sadness of Granny’s personality that is not uncovered by lines, but is underneath the surface.

In honor or Granny having a voice, I am giving away six copies of the audiobook. Three here on my blog, and three on my author Facebook Page. Since Granny loves coffee and wine, all you have to do is comment and tell Granny about your favorite coffee drink, your favorite wine, or your favorite brand of either. You can elaborate if you want.  Don’t worry if your comment doesn’t show up right away. I approve all comments because we want Granny nice on this page so we don’t shock reader’s eyes.

Let’s Crab About Something!

Today on my author page on Facebook, Author Facebook Page we are letting my readers crab about something. So head on over and join the fun. There will be a giveaway.bad day

This is a paragraph from one of the stories in my new book “Something About Nothing.”
Let’s crab about something! The experts tell you that if you have a habit of worrying, you should take five minutes out of the day and do nothing but worry. Apparently, this helps and you will not be such a worrywart, so maybe the same exercise will work for being crabby. Let’s crab about things for five minutes a day and see if it works. I’ll start.

Today, nicely, no swearing, crab about something on this post. The one I think is the crabbiest will win a Kindle Copy of my new book. And a surprise in the mail. Share and ask people to like my page and comment. Let’s get our crabbiness out.
