Father's Day

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and had the opportunity to celebrate and honor all the wonderful fathers we have and know.

I don’t know who originally said “Anyone can be father, but it takes someone special to be a daddy,” but that saying is so true. I see it over and over again every time I look at my sons and see the way their eyes sparkle when they look upon their daughters. Priceless.

My father’s birthday usually always falls on Father’s Day weekend. This year it was Saturday, and though he’s been gone for five years now, I missed him as much as I did back then. He was my first hero.

Life has been busy here, and will continue to be. Grad parties and weddings are the themes this year. Good things for sure.

I focused hard to complete the rewrite of The Major's Wife this weekend—had set a goal to have it done by Father's Day. I did. But while doing the final read through I discovered I really don’t like the ending now, so, in other words, I’m not done. I will be by next weekend though.

I’ve had some amazing emails this week from fans loving both Sing to Me, Cowboy and The Sheriff’s Last Gamble. Thank you. I appreciate hearing from you, and I love the fact people are enjoying these stories as much as I enjoyed writing them.

My to do list is long, so I’m out of here. Enjoy the day. Make it special. And if you didn’t get a chance to talk to your dad yesterday, do it today.
