Garlic Chives and Onions

Garlic chives and onions flowering, pretty and edible!

Off to write before I get together with my daughter and her baby. It’s spring break this week so she has off, which means trying to catch up on a million things. I don’t have spring break. I have a looming deadline, but I still want to take spring break too. lol

Have a wonderful day!

Yes, We Have Fall Colors!

On the walk with baby.

It’s harder to capture the autumn colors here, unlike our fellow friends in the more colorful regions of the world where fall explodes with vibrancy. So for us, capturing some of the colors here is much harder. And of course, I only brought my 50mm with me instead of the one I use to shoot for scenery because I thought I was only going to take pictures of baby. But the fall colors caught my eye too. Next time….

One year, the pear trees were wild with color. I’d never noticed it before, but I think we had just enough rainfall and cold weather to make it happen that year.

I’m back to edits on My Highlander. When baby went home last night, I was working on them, making all the changes that needed to be made as my story idea changes with the progress of the novel. It also helps me to see what I need to add to make the scenes more vivid, colorful, just like a fall scene–not flat, but memorable.

Whether you have fall or not, embrace the beauty of your world.

Somewhere, I have a picture of a rusting child’s antique car–used as a garden ornament, but unseen by most in Old Town Spring. It captured my eye as my family continued walking and I paused to take a picture. I hope it turned out and I want to share it, once I find it! Even a rusted out old toy car can be beautiful–full of stories.

Have a memorably fun day!

Stormy Sunset

We had stormy skies on and off all day, but it didn’t storm. We’re supposed to have more tomorrow, but it’s been going that way, huge thunderheads, no storms, 80-90% of rain, no rain. So we shall see. 🙂

Have a lovely day!

Skies before the Storms Hit

 

Sunrise–beautiful storm clouds. And then the rain came down and the birds and the squirrels braved the weather to eat. Here’s a baby squirrel on the feeder as the rain is pouring.

With the upcoming release of SEAL Wolf Undercover, I wanted to share a new video trailer for the “first” in the SEAL Wolf Series. Actually, To Tempt the Wolf has the first mention of the SEAL wolves, but I need to make a new video for it too. 🙂

 

 

SEAL in Wolf’s Clothing
Book 1 in Terry Spear’s SEAL Wolf Series — A USA Today Bestseller!

Her instincts tell her he’s dangerous…
His powers of persuasion are impossible to resist…

While her overprotective brother’s away, Meara Greymere’s planning to play—and it wouldn’t hurt to find herself a mate in the process. The last thing she needs is one of his SEAL buddies spoiling her fun, even if the guy is the hottest one she’s ever seen.

Finn Emerson is a battle-hardened Navy SEAL and alpha wolf. He’s a little overqualified for baby-sitting, but feisty Meara is attracting trouble like a magnet.

As the only responsible alpha male in the vicinity, Finn is going to have to protect this intriguing woman from a horde of questionable men, and definitely from himself.

Storms and Sunrise

Different times of the day during the storms yesterday. A hurricane sign went up on the highway. What???

We’re 70 miles inland from the Gulf, but one woman said when the last hurricane hit, they were without running water and electricity for 2 weeks.

It’s hurricane season.

Have a nice hurricane-free day.

Stagecoach Inn–A Ghost of a Chance at Love

A Ghost of a Chance at Love

Time Travel Ghostly Romance

Every year until my mother died, we would visit old Salado, Texas and I always thought: what if I stayed overnight at the historic Stagecoach Inn, back then called The Shady Villa Inn, and woke to the old town, the dirt roads, the original Salado, Texas? Forget using your car. Horseback, buggies, or stagecoach were the only means of travel.

But it wouldn’t be fun to just wake up there! Nope–first of all, I write romantic suspense, so waking up to a hot rancher, now that’s more like it. Yep. He’s in her bed. Wait, no, she’s in his bed! Because when he went to sleep and she went to sleep, they were in different time periods. So. Much. Fun.

See? Just What If something and you never know where you might end up!

A GHOST OF A CHANCE AT LOVE 

Time travel western romance.

The past clashes with the present, and one woman finds herself fighting for her own identity in the past so that she can have a future with the man she loves–but with her ancestor’s hold over her–Lisa Welsh and Jack Stanton only have a ghost of a chance at love. 

Lisa Welsh only wishes to leave a messy divorce behind for a couple of days stay in Salado, Texas, but wakes to nightmares and a cowboy in her bed, and she has no earthly idea how he got there. But the situation gets worse when she wakes in the morning and learns she’s living in 19th Century Salado. Even more worrisome is the tall dark stranger and everyone else in town believes she’s some woman named Josephine Rogers. Only she’s supposed to be dead.

Jack Stanton can’t believe the clerk gave him an occupied room at the Shady Villa Inn, but worse, he was ready to ravage the woman in that bed—until he realized his mistake. Now the woman he thinks is Josephine, claims to be some other woman—and though he could never abide by Josephine’s fickle ways, this Lisa Welsh intrigues him like no other. Still, everybody in town believes her to be Josephine, and he steps in to help her find her way back home.

Murder, mystery, ties to family roots in the past, embezzlement and murder in the present, and a man she can’t get off her mind no matter what century it is, Lisa has no choice. She must solve the mysteries and face the troubles in her world and Jack’s or they will never be free to share the love that binds them across the ages.

You gotta do what you gotta do.

Off to work on another interview, and the revised synopsis for Flight of the White Wolf, and then back to Bounty Hunter Gets Her Wolf. 74,000 words to go!

Have a wonderful day down memory lane. 🙂

It’s Coming to Me!!!

In bits and pieces–Vexing the Highlander–so I have to write really quickly or it will fade from my brain.

sunset and red-bellied woodpeckers 018 (800x533)So here is the coolest sunset ever! Overhead out front it was the prettiest purple and pink, but in the window it was oranges and yellows. Now…if I had been an artist, I would say that wasn’t correct. It clashed. It wasn’t real looking. But there you have it. Reality can be unreal, and fantasy totally real. And mostly from the backyard, the shifting colors. At first, it was a dreamy white. And I thought it was so pretty, I took a picture. The crepe myrtles and their leaf structure are pretty against the fading sky. Then the colors kept morphing, the clouds kept moving. I love how the sunset lights up the puffs of clouds. And then darker, until all that is left is a pink glow before the sunsets for another day.

sunset and red-bellied woodpeckers 001 (800x533)sunset and red-bellied woodpeckers 004 (800x533)sunset and red-bellied woodpeckers 005 (800x533)sunset and red-bellied woodpeckers 008 (800x533)sunset and red-bellied woodpeckers 011 (800x533)sunset and red-bellied woodpeckers 025 (800x533)sunset and red-bellied woodpeckers 026 (800x533)And that was the nighttime display.

Garbage is out! Missed it last Thursday. We only had it once a week back home, but it’s so easy to get used to having it 2 times a week now that if I miss it, I must remind myself of that.

Back to the book, the scenes are competing with each other for book space. And then? It’s off to White Wolf Christmas.

Have a wonderful day!!!

Sunset in Texas

It’s been so hot and humid, but yesterday we had two storms they didn’t predict and two days earlier, another storm. That helped to bring our temperature down for the day. So it was a really nice relief, and I didn’t have to water.

sunset home (1280x853) sunset last night (1280x853)We had the most beautiful sunset the other night though. When I saw it, I was just putting the puppies to bed and I was afraid I’d miss the sunset. You know, it doesn’t take long for the sunset to fade and then disappear.

But it was so beautiful.

Off to work on SEAL and brave the heat. 🙂

Have a lovely day!!!
