Not only is it summer here, but it’s also the first day of the new school year. The school term starts in early January and ends in December with four terms. I actually love the year round school and the kids seem to enjoy it as well.

We woke up early this morning to get the kids off to their school that is located about three minutes from our house. They are nervous and excited at the same time, and like every other anxious mom, I’ll be spending my day praying for them!

Right now they are in a private, Christian school and we’ve been very impressed with the staff and the focus of the school. Financially, the school is really struggling because they’ve kept fees at a minimum in order to allow as many kids as possible to be able to attend and receive a Christian education. I’m looking forward to being apart of the Parents Association and becoming active in the school and seeing what we can do to raise money for the school.

I promised more information about my latest sale. Barbour publishing is starting a new subscriber-based cozy mystery book club consisting of thirty-two titles per year. It’s called Spyglass Lane mysteries. If you love cozy mysteries, romance, and a strong spiritual messages, this is the book club to join. The line will open the end of this year. My book, Recipe for Murder, will be among the first of the new line, so I’m quite excited. More details to come.

And with three deadlines on top of me, it’s off to work for now.




  1. I'm really curious how murder fits in with strong spiritual themes... :)
    I pray for your kids, that they will have everything they need and more! I know you will be an awesome part of the parents' group.
    God bless your family!

  2. Congratulations on your new
    Spyglass mystery. I'm so happy for you. Can't wait to read it. I hope the kids have a good first
    day at school. I'll be praying for you all.
