HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Can you believe that it’s 2013?  Part of me looks at the year ahead and sees how much I have to do–child’s graduation, getting two ready for college, driver’s license tests, etc.  Then part of me looks with excitement to what the new year holds.  I am truly blessed with good health, my faith, and a family that loves me.  

And on top of that, I have books!  I love to read and romance stories make me so happy.  They are uplifting and make me feel that there can be happy endings in life.  I guess that’s why I write.  I love to see two people work through the hard stuff in life and come together to make a beautiful relationship.  I smile just thinking about it!

Thanks to all of you who read my story Christmas Grace.  The response has been very positive and heartwarming.  I’ve got a busy schedule this year for posting my books.  The tentative schedule is as follows:  The Biggest Part of Me will come out in February.  The Movie Star and the Mom in late April, early May.  Heartthrob in September.  And another Christmas story in November.  Whew!  That’s a lot!  I’d better get writing!

Happy New Year!

M.M.

“Christmas Grace” is here!

Have you had enough of politics?  I think I’ve had enough to last my entire life!

In honor of the end of the political season, I’m releasing my Christmas story entitled Christmas Grace.  It’s the story of diner owner Grace Hudson who wants nothing to do with Christmas and photographer Stuart “Mac” McCrae who loves everything to do with Christmas.  The problem comes when Mac needs Grace to decorate her diner for the last picture in his new book.

Set in a small central Florida town, Christmas Grace is a story of forgiveness and love.  Follow the lovable Mac as he tries to reform “Ebenezer Scrooge Grace” and in the process find a passion he wasn’t looking for.

The Greatest of These is Love

There are many cliches of what love is.  Love is a many splendored thing, All you need is love, Love conquerors all.  However, my favorite is from the Bible.  I Corinthians 13 says that “there abides faith, hope, and love, these three.  But the greatest of these is love.”

There is power in just saying the word.  Remember when that certain someone first said, “I love you.”  Wow!  I can still feel the goose bumps!  Yes, even past faith and hope, love endures.  That’s why I ADORE love stories.  They not only make me happy, they touch something deep in my soul.  They make me feel good and realize that there are a few good things in this cold, hard world.

To that end, my passion is to create more of these feel-good stories to inspire and encourage people as we all journey down life’s road.  Hopefully, there will be a few tears, a few laughs, but always a satisfied sigh following “the end.”

Come join me discovering that truly, “The greatest of these is love.”
