A Fond Farewell

I’m normally a wordy writer, but as I prepared this post, words failed me.

My decision to retire is the right one for me, a decision the Lord has confirmed many times in many ways. That doesn’t stop the rush of emotions washing over me as I embrace this new chapter in my life.

As I reflect on my writing career, one emotion stands out: gratitude. I’m beyond thankful for each one of you who has come alongside me as I’ve traveled this path, offering me support and encouragement. You’re the best cheerleaders ever!

I’ve been asked if I would consider writing again. My answer is this. I might not be writing novels now, but I’ll always be a writer. Should the Lord call me to put fingers to keyboard again someday, we would have some long talks.

My longtime writing partner, Anne, sent me an encouraging email recently. She suggested I think of writing as “a room in your life that is always there, right behind the closed door.” I’ve taken her wise words to heart.


This post marks the end of my blogging…for now. I’m eager to see what the Lord has in store for me next.

Instead of saying goodbye, as we Americans do, I’ll end by saying auf Wiedersehen, which, translated literally, means until we see each other again. I’m sure I’ll see many of you over on Facebook.

Christmas Tea With an Author

I hope to see some of you at my final author appearance.
I’ll be your host at the Christmas Tea with an Author
event this coming Friday, December 8.

I’ll be stopping by throughout that day to chat with readers. The other participating Love Inspired Historical authors and I teamed up to offer a Loaded Kindle Fire. I’ll be offering some fun prizes of my own, including this Christmas-themed Origami Owl locket.


I think this festive locket deserves a close-up.

Note that all the tiny crystals are included.
I removed them to make it easier to see the charms.
