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 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.
