I've been thinking about my love of books. Since all of us are avid readers and some of us are authors, I'm sure you have your own stories about how you came to love the written word so much.
Well, the Holiday Season is upon us, and I'm reminded of my dear mother. Books! There were always books under the Christmas tree for my sisters and me. Reading was encouraged. Reading was made enjoyable. I not only read all of the Bobbsey Twin series, but I read every biography I could find in the school library about famous people. Black Beauty, Gulliver's Travels, Treasure Island, Bible Stories--the list is endless.
Writing was just the automatic progression for me. Heart of Stone is my first book, and centers around the Brandon Family in Riverbend, Texas. There are four siblings, and Stone Brandon starts the series of books about the loves and betrayals of the Brandons. Cady's Chance will be the 2nd book, about Stone's sister, Cady. I received a wonderful comment in a review of Heart of Stone. The reviewer stated that by the end of the book, she wanted to be adopted by the Brandon family. :-)
