Sweet Small-Town Romance
2nd Place
I’m thrilled! Two weekends ago, I spent the day with my four-year-old granddaughter hanging around the house. We’d gone to Starbucks for a treat, watered the plants, baked cookies, and were watching the Seattle Sounders game when I received the link to watch the live announcement of winners on YouTube for a writing contest.

My latest novel, Stealing Poppies, won 2nd place in the Chesapeake Romance Writers Contest - The Rudy. My granddaughter and I celebrated as I jumped up and down in my kitchen, smiling and hugging my little girl. 

As you know, this was the first contest where I was a finalist, and now, I’d won 2nd place! I was smiling from ear to ear and so excited. Just that little bit of encouragement was enough to motivate me.

So, I want to motivate you. I’m looking for friends who want the encouragement and accountability of others. Do you want to jump on a zoom call every Thursday and Shut up and Write? Starting this Thursday, September 23, 2021, at 7:00 pm PST, you can join me and my friends as we encourage each other. Let’s write together. 😊

Here is the link to join us - Shut Up and Write with Friends.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Remember: Butt in the Seat!
