Hello from the beautiful Ozarks, (otherwise known as God’s Country). I’m delighted you’ve stopped by!

People in the Ozarks are some of the friendliest bunch you’ll ever run across. We may be down-to-earth, but we’re not dry as dust. We may have a bit of an Ozarkian twang. It gives us character. If we say “howdy” it means we like you. If you’re new to our neck of the woods, we might just bake you a cake and deliver it to your doorstep. Neighbors still do that here. If the preacher says “Glad to have you today” then you better be back next Sunday ’cause you’ll be missed. And just so you’ll feel truly at home, we’ll invite you to dinner and, of course, let you wash a dish or two!

If you ask me, the Ozarks are the perfect setting for heartfelt, homespun love stories, and they’re the backdrop for the novels I write. I’ve enjoyed spinning tales of love and romance since I was a starry-eyed teenager back in junior high school. I grew up on Cinderella, and I still believe in fairy-tale endings.

Some folks think that’s a tad old-fashioned and unrealistic, but I believe in a God of love who is the master matchmaker, and I know He delights in giving us our dreams. If you’d like to hear more about how He’s done this for me, check out my story on my Bio page.

Speaking of dreams, I’d love to get to know you and hear a little more about your hopes and dreams! I blog every Wednesday and Friday, and I’d love to have you join me! You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Until then, kick off your shoes and make yourself at home. You’re welcome here.
