Ever since I got out of the hospital in May, I've been walking--outside when possible. Today I sucked in a deep breath and crossed the street to the park across the street, which has a curving walk diagonally across the park. I walked all the way and returned on the west side, crossed the street by my neighbor's house and came home.

A long walk for me and the scariest were the "accessible" curbs. They make them so strange now that they are a hazard to me. But I managed to negotiate them and not fall. Yeah!

Do we prefer that which disappears or that which lasts? Check out my latest devotion by clicking the link below.

We name our kids and organizations after positive attributes or people. Yet, whatever an organization or sports team is named, those who decide on the name may be in for threats, bad publicity or even lawsuits.

My Harlequin Heartsong Presents book A PROPER GUARDIAN is available at Amazon and other online stores. Get it for your eReader--like Kindle.

The next two in the series THE EARL'S WARD and THE LADY'S HERO are out as well. You can order these books at Amazon and other venues.

It is interesting to me how quickly the print version disappears. The first book is already mainly available in ebook form. If you want the print version, don't wait. 

Fun, romantic Regencies suitable for teens on up. Check FICTION for more information.

About the Author

Writing has been my life since I first picked up a pencil before I entered school. I learned the alphabet and the word AT. After that I went down the alphabet rhyming words. It was intoxicating! 

By the time I left third grade, I was writing stories and knew one thing--I wanted to be a writer. (I also wanted to be a jockey, before there were women jockeys. I was deep into the Walter Farley "Black Stallion" books.) 

I geared my education to become a writer. In high school I won writing awards and sold my first short story. During college I began selling my stories and articles. I graduated with a comprehensive degree in Journalism--a very good foundation for any type of writing. 

Now, many books later, some traditionally published, some with small publishers and some self-published, I still write for my career. (Some of those books won awards.) I have a regular column in a regional newspaper. I write short articles for Internet clients. And still develop book projects. 

What I write reaches all ages. Interesting how, as my own children grew up, I wrote stories for their different ages and stages. I write both fiction and non-fiction, contemporary and historical, mystery, fantasy and even romance. I also write about the moral, cultural and political issues of the day.

 I write from a caring, life-affirming, Christian perspective. You'll find here books and writing to challenge, convict, encourage and lift up. 

Enjoy the journey. CRS
