Dear Readers, Fellow Writers, Friends and Fans,
Wishing you a happy and healthy 2018!
2017 was a year of reflection for me. Personally, I lost a favorite uncle to cancer, and witnessed other extended family members battle for their lives in efforts to beat this deadly disease. On the other hand, we triumphantly celebrated the 101st birthday of a special aunt. Each year has surprises in store for us no matter how much we plan out our lives.
Professionally, I’m thankful to all of you for your wonderful friendship and support as I navigate the waters of the path I’ve chosen at this stage in my life — that of writer and published author. Your kind words and thoughtful reviews spur me onward to continue this fascinating journey!
It’s hard to believe a month of the new year has already passed. This year promises to be a busy one with writing projects to complete, as well as new ones to begin. For example, the fifth installment in my Christmas Shoppe Magic series, Christmas Shoppe Magic – Strikes Again will be out in the Spring or Fall. Also, the second Love Inn Style story, A Blueberry Lane Christmas will also be released by the time the holiday season rolls around.
In previous years, I’ve told you about Juliette’s Journeys of Inspiration, traveling locally and to different parts of the country exploring historical sites, points of interest, and regions where I set my books. All have inspired creative ideas through the years.
This year, my mini-research and relaxation trips will be called the Vintage Voyages of One Vintage Heart! As most of you may already have realized after reading my stories, I love the water. Sitting by the water, cruising the waters, be it rivers, lakes or oceans, or viewing it from a waterside restaurant, each give me a peaceful, satisfied feeling. What else would you expect from a Pisces, one of the water signs?
Hopefully, these voyages, literal or figurative, will refresh, inspire and ignite my imagination further to bring you more inspirational, multi-generational fiction that readers have enjoyed.
My wish for you is that this year be the best you’ve ever experienced, full of successes, triumphs, joy and laughter and anything else that brings you loads of happiness!
Happy 2018 Reading and Writing!
