Winter is in the building! Even if it can’t seem to decide whether to stay or go. Here in Atlanta we’re shivering one minute and throwing open the windows to catch a warm breeze the next.

I’ll admit our winters are mild compared to our northern neighbors. But we do get our share of cold weather, ice and, yes, on occasion, snow. Okay, no snickering over last January’s Snowmaggedon. Cities this firmly located in the Sunbelt do not invest in snowplows.

Growing up on the west coast of Florida I’d never seen snow or even the change of seasons until we moved to Atlanta. This season practically demands hibernation. (Not a bad thing for someone whose work rarely requires leaving the house.) I’ve stocked up on chocolate, fluffy slippers, back up batteries and books.

Like most writers I’m used to spending more time with the people in my head than the living breathing kind. That’s why the chance to share news with you and other readers here and on social media means a lot. Thanks so much for stopping by.

While you’re here, I hope you’ll click around and stay awhile. In addition to excerpts, you’ll find readers’ guides, reviews and book descriptions. You can even register your book club and invite me to visit via Skype or other meet-ups. I’d love to have you on my email list so that I can share occasional news about upcoming books and try to let you know if I’ll be at an event in your area.

Thanks again for stopping by. I appreciate the company and your interest in me and my work.

Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy holiday season,

I really like it and I hope you do, too. I’m so excited to be sharing it with you and I can’t wait to hear what you think. It’s the story of three friends, Emma Michaels, Mackenzie Hayes and Serena Stockton, who met and bonded twenty years ago in New York City and whose friendship grew and strengthened every summer at Emma’s family lake house in the...
