Hi everyone! First, a blessed birthday to Amber. I hope the coming year brings you lots of joy and happiness.
When I thought over the*clears throat* many birthdays I’ve had, the one that always comes to mind is
one from when I was really young – maybe five or so? You see, I’m a Christmas Eve baby. Every year my nana (my dad’s mom) would make sure that I had a birthday cake on my day (we celebrated it earlier in the month with cousins after the church Christmas play).
Anyway, this particular year Frosty the Snowman was on the TV. This was back when it was only on ONE night and if you missed it? Oh well. All
I can remember is running and jumping into my grampy’s lap and yelling “Frosty tolded me Happy Birthday!” My grandfather must have thought I was nuts. But as that was many moons ago and it’s still making me smile? Yeah, I’ll go with that
being my most memorable birthday.
I’m currently working on BE WITH ME, the story of Rafe (Mooney) and Debbie Luna (yes, I’m writing a m/f but dang they deserve their story after being major secondary characters in most of my books). My latest release came out in May (ALWAYS WITH ME). It’s the stories of my twins, Cal and Cam Luna (Mooney and Debbie’s sons).
Calvin and Camden Luna — why yes, their dad is a big baseball fan— have moved around the world with their parents. Their father has been in the military since before they were born. Proud of their father and all he has done, neither of them is sure the military is for them. Haven’t they given up enough already? Cam is a fantastic baseball player and Cal loves the science of everything.
Tristan Nolan and Maddy Holt both grew up as military kids too, but neither of them moved around as much as the twins. Tris has always wanted to follow in the footsteps of those before him and make a career in the military; Maddy wants to save the planet and capture the heart of Calvin Luna… if he’d only open his eyes. Can Tris be himself — out and proud — and serve and protect his country? Can he end up with the one he’s loved for as long as he can remember?
What can happen when you grow up a military brat with the close ties from your fathers’ close friends and their families? Find the love of your life almost from the start? Or find out that maybe you’re all too close to have anything else?
