I loved seeing all of you at Miller’s Landing Day! Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting with me. It was an amazing day, and you guys were so sweet! Some of you I hadn’t seen in way too many years! And thank you to my lovely assistants who got up early and stayed late! Oh, and a shout-out to my nephew, Jack, who swept the turtle and frog races that day! ...He gets it from his aunt, who once had a grand champion racing turtle herself! 😉 :) I’ve included a few photos from Saturday below!
I had so much fun at Franklin County R-2 Reading Night this week! It was so good to come home to my alma mater and see so many familiar faces! Thank you, Huskies, for letting me be a part of your special night.
P.S. You can get the hardcover copy of Pay It Forward here!
I had so much fun in Clear Lake! It was so good to see all of you again at the North Iowa Book Bash!
Thank you, Neighborhood Reads, for inviting me out! I had so much fun! AND THANK YOU to everyone who came to visit with me. It means so much. I hope you enjoy your small-town love stories! 💗 💗
I love letters! My grandma saved the letters Grandpa wrote to her. One from 1950 says: “I hope we’re together this time next year ‘cause I love you so much, and I just keep thinking of you all the time.” They married nearly two years later and were together for 54 years. Every letter talks about “waiting on Sunday.” That’s the day Grandpa would meet Grandma at her parents’ home for supper. In another letter, Grandpa talks about how “awful bashful” he was when meeting Grandma’s parents for the first time. ☺️❤️
P.S. This is the same grandpa that inspired River's grandpa in By Way of Accident!
I'm SO excited to be signing at these wonderful events in 2018 and 2019! And I'd love to see you! So, if you're in the area, come out and visit with me!

My baby is FIVE years old! In 2012, Julia first shared her love story in Butterfly Weeds. And I'll never forget the kind words and real-life stories YOU shared with me on how Butterfly Weeds touched your lives in that first year and each year after. I'm still so honored, and I will be forever grateful! Thank you for accepting Will Stephens and Julia Lang into your hearts five years ago. AND thank you for continuing to keep their story alive through your sweet words and memories! AND TO CELEBRATE, Julia and Will's love story has a new look!!! Check out the new cover on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and iTunes very soon!
Back cover summary: Julia Lang expected a nice night away from the office—free of thoughts about the case, her failed engagement, her past. But she should have known better. Her past haunted her every chance it got these days, and tonight it came in the form of lyrics she never expected to hear again—not after a decade, not in the arms of another man and definitely not in the form of a confession.
Now, Julia must discover for herself if the song—and more importantly, the man behind it—is enough to leave her new life for her small-town, Missouri roots and a second chance at love.
"One of the most beautiful love stories I have ever read."
-Jelena's Book Blog
"Butterfly Weeds is definitely one of my favorite books of 2012; I couldn't put this one down. I was so spellbound by the story of Julia and Will. I will forever love and be captivated by Will Stephens; I only wish I knew someone like him in real life."
-Romantic Reading Escapes
"Beautifully written and sure to leave a lasting footprint on your heart."
-Angela McLaurin, The Indie Bookshelf
I write about rain on tin roofs, gravel roads, old trucks with holes in the floorboards and small-town summer nights. I grew up on a farm in a little Midwestern town. Now, I live in Kansas City, Mo., with my weatherman husband.
