Happy (almost) New Year! I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for this past year! This year has truly been full, thanks to you! I enjoyed hearing from and meeting so many of you in the past twelve months! Thank you for your kind words, your reviews, your encouragement and your enthusiasm for my stories.
This year, you met Andrew, Logan and Jorgen in For All You Have Left, and you took their journey of love and second chances with them! Also this year, you took a chance on a small-town farm boy named River in By Way of Accident, and again, you ventured with him through the ups and downs in his life! And finally, some of you discovered Will's story in Butterfly Weeds and My Butterfly for the first time this year!
Thank you! Thank you for taking the ride with them--for pulling for them, for cheering them on! And thank you for cheering me on! From the bottom of my heart, thank you! I, alone, cannot give my characters a life like you can give them. I might give them breath, but you give them a voice. You make them heard! Their story lives on through you! And for that, I am forever grateful! Thank you! Have a wonderful 2015!
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.
