Aw, I know every family has it’s warts and closet skeletons and things you wish you could sweep under the bed like dust-bunnies. But I’m the kind of writer who finds real life nauseatingly present in the fiction I come up with.
That said, I’ve been estranged from my brother Paul for quite a few years now. I’m not going to apply fault but...I’ve talked to enough clergy and even a counselor to suspect I’m pretty much 100% right.
Nonetheless, it hurts. And when I was writing Right to Bragg, the fourth installment of my Hearts Crossing Ranch series at Pelican Book Group, I couldn’t even consider another name but Paul for the heroine’s alienated brother.
Here’s the blurb for Book Four. Remember to leave a comment and your e-addy...I’ll draw one name tonight for some (lucky?) person of those who posted on my blogs here the last three days,, to receive the first four books of my Hearts Crossing Ranch series. (Book Five, Soul Food, released a few days ago, and there will be three more in future.
Disowned by her family, Tiffany Vickers faces a lonely Christmas and takes great comfort in the baby boy in her care. Her faith is in tatters, and she guards her heart against the baby's uncle, handsome cowboy, Bragg Martin.
It's the season for forgiveness, and while Bragg longs to open his heart and family to the lovely nanny, he doesn't understand her interest in his arch enemy. Saving a man's life and saving Tiffany's faith bring the couple together...and home to Hearts Crossing Ranch.
Okay, now comment to this question: (it relates to skeletons in the family closet LOL.)
Would you EVER get a skull/skeleton tattoo? Or have you? (I actually LOVE them.) Do you have or would you get a tattoo of any kind? (I’d LOVE a cherry blossom tat across my shoulder like Crosby’s in Parenthood, well, a feminized version anyway. But I’m a regular blood donor. 57 gallon club....you can’t donate for a year if you get a tat or a piercing. Sigh.)
