If you weren’t an author, what would be your dream job? If I weren’t an author, I’d probably be an interior designer. My husband and I have remodeled our 1977 beach home three times in the last eight years—including the kitchen, adding a half bath, master bath, and pantry, as well as an office addition. I had so much fun designing the floor plans and picking out the finishes.
If you could have lived at another time in history, what would it be and why? If I lived at another time in history, it would be the early 1900’s, mainly because of the fashion—the puffed, frilly blouses that were embellished with lace collars and broad ribbon ties, and hair that was parted down the middle and worn in a chignon with a broad-brim hat adorned with flowers, lace, ribbons, and feathers. Doesn’t that sound romantic? I write about this time in history in my two historical romance novels, Watercolor Dreams and Road to Harmony.

Abbie had a tumor removed in August after a routine eye examination showed enlarged optic nerves, and an MRI confirmed the mass. She has completed radiation and is now undergoing chemotherapy. Our family motto is, “God is bigger” because we believe God is going to restore her to complete health.

Amy Carrington locked the front door and flipped the closed
sign of Second Time Around, her upscale consignment shop on
She leaned against the back of the door and took a deep breath. The holiday season was a busy time. Besides the usual day-to-day workload, she'd baked a batch of her popular snickerdoodle cookies early this morning and had decorated the store with Christmas cheer to make window-shoppers stop and come inside. With the number of customers today, her efforts were already paying off.
But would it continue until Christmas?
She adjusted the sign in the front window announcing the Christmas drive. Each year, she gave a large portion of her income to her favorite charity, a nonprofit organization that helped kids suffering from cystic fibrosis and provided support to families. Amy knew this organization all too well. When she was sixteen, she’d lost her little brother to the disease. Each year she made it a game of sorts, to outdo the amount she’d given the previous year.
This year was going to be a challenge—because of Sunshine Builders.
The construction company had broken ground three months ago and construction was in full force. The loud machinery next door deterred those wanting a peaceful shopping experience, and Amy was already tired of the beeping, banging, and drilling. Thank goodness, today was Saturday and she had a reprieve.
