Look what arrived on my doorstep! These are my author copies of a double digest that includes a re-release of my book, The Nanny’s Amish Family, as well as a previously released book by the lovely Carrie Lighte. It will be hitting the shelves everywhere in September this year, so I hope you’ll pick up a copy! It’s a great way to experience one of my books along side another truly gifted writer. I’m so honoured when my book is chosen for a re-release!

I’m including this book in a brand new giveaway that will be posting on my Facebook page the morning of Monday, July 5, 2021. I’m teaming up with Tracey J. Lyons, and if you haven’t discovered her yet, you want to. 🙂 You’ll find the giveaway pinned to the top of my Facebook page when I do post it, so if you nip over there and don’t see it yet, just give me a few hours. It’ll be there!


We’ve had a big heatwave through Western Canada, and our family has been doing whatever we could to stay cool. It was near 40C/104F, which is just unheard of for us! We didn’t have it as bad as British Columbia did, though. They had a town that saw 50C/122F, and it burned to the ground. We’ve never seen heat like this before.

I got some advice from readers who live in the southern states who are much more used to this kind of heat, so that was very helpful! Our air conditioners were really struggling, so we shut the blinds to keep the heat out, drank a lot of iced tea, and did our best to keep from using the stove.

And then, we finally got some rain! What a wild relief that was! The clouds rolled in at sunset, and I snapped some pictures of the gorgeous sunset that came with them. I thought you might enjoy them.

I hope you are all doing well, staying cool, and enjoying your summer!

Happy reading!
