  1. Hello JL,

    What an awesome blog! I'm really enjoying it. Such wonderful posts and information about writing. Outs my little book promo blog to shame :-) Lol.

    I really need to embrace more of my craft of writing. But I'm busy promoting some fine new authors. Hope you'll stop by sometime!

    Much Happiness,
    Author, Catherine Townsend-Lyon :)

  3. I am now one of your biggest fans. I've recently read The Vet's Christmas Pet and The Vet's Valentine Gift. And I just noticed that there is a 3rd book in this series, which I will have to get. I just love the characters in this book. Also, I've just finished reading Anya's Wish, Chasing Anya and Taming Celeste. I also loved the characters, especially Christophe. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY to Haitian parents. So, I loved that you incorporated a character I can relate to big time. I loved the fact that you threw in the creole and French words. Is there any relation to a Haitian husband in real life? So, I will next read Contraband and Grudge. Are they out yet? Let me know...thanks.


    1. Thanks so much for your support! And do, the creole included came through researching the language. :)


Don't be shy, I'd love to hear what you think.
