I am so excited that my first LIH, Somewhere To Call Home is available now. Should be in my Wal-Mart any day now and is available online both in print or e-book. I’ve wanted to write for Love Inspired Historicals since they first came out and that this story is the first in a series brings me such joy!
But there’s heartache today as we watch the news and see the devistation Sandy left behind. I’ve written about how my heart went out to New Yorker’s after 9/11, as I’m sure yours did too. And since then the city and it’s people have always had a special place in my heart–so much so that I felt called to set stories there.
And my heart goes out to them all now. My heart is heavy for my editor and all the other editors at Love Inspired and Harlequin in New York City, for all of the New Yorker’s and those in New Jersey and the other states who were in the path of Sandy.
I know how difficult this is in so many ways for all of them. My husband worked for the National Weather Service and we lived in south Mississippi, when Katrina hit. On my website is a page called Katrina–it’s a page I can’t bring myself to bring down. I remember how it was and will never forget just as I know those dealing with the aftermath of Sandy will never be able to forget.
My heart aches to see the pictures, and hear the stories and know that they’ll be dealing with so much in the coming days, weeks, and months. Life is not going to be easy or normal for a while yet and going through it all is going to be difficult for everyone there. I wish I could help more, but I’ll do what I can. I’ll give to Red Cross or Salvation Army and most important of all, I’ll pray. I ask that you join me in that effort and keep these people who are going through so much in your prayers.
