Before I ever wrote one line of a novel, I was a newspaper reporter. My beat was government news. And for most of the meetings I covered, I was the only female in the room. And sadly, all over the world, women and girls face barriers when it comes to fundamental human rights, access to education and an equal place in the workforce. We’ve come a long way. We still have a way to go. Empowered girls grow up to be empowered women. I am so proud to be a part of the #AugusteforWOMEN & #UNWomenAust campaign. Join @augustethelabel and @UNWomen in raising awareness for the empowerment, education, safety and leadership of our sisters. And visit Auguste the Label to purchase one of these beautiful tees! 100% of the retail value goes to meeting the needs of women and girls worldwide! 💗
A Bird on a Windowsill is my sixth book, but you can read it first! All my books are standalones! A Bird on a Windowsill is about young love and second chances in a small, Midwestern town. Find Salem & Savannah’s story and all my books on Amazon! 💜
The Tiger Tailgate is only a couple weeks away on August 4 in Independence (Kansas City), Mo.! I’ll be signing my books. AND former MU football Coach Gary Pinkel will also be there. This fun, family-friendly event helps to raise scholarships for future Tigers. Visit here to get your tickets! Hope to see you there! 🐯 M-I-Z! P.S. You don’t have to be a Tiger to come play. Even KU fans are welcome!😄
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 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.
