My son and daughter-in-law have a wedding anniversary today. I have a different kind of anniversary on January 31. That’s the date in 2000 I received “the call” from the editorial staff at Harlequin (owner of Love Inspired) offering to buy my first book. I can hardly believe it’s been eleven years and quite a few sales since that exhilarating moment. In all this time, I have been blessed to work with the same amazing editor who made that call-Allison Lyons. Maybe I should send her a cyber bouquet!
My mother was an avid romance reader, too, and I was sad she didn’t live to see her daughter write a book. But when “the call” finally came, I wondered if maybe somehow she knew. After all, January 31 was her birthday. (Love you, Mom!!)
On March 1, A Place To Belong continues the “Redemption River” series. Hope you’ll keep an eye out!
