I have a free online read that will be available beginning August 30, 2021 on the Harlequin site. It’s a mini-romance–20 chapters that are unlocked one per day, culminating in a happily ever after. 🙂

I’ll give you a link in next week’s post when the free read is live, but I know you’ll enjoy it. This is the story of a beautiful Amish girl and the shy, awkward man next door who’s been writing her letters for his grandmother. You have to love an Amish mammi who wants to see a wedding! 🙂


This isn’t a collection that I’m a part of, but if you love sweet romance, Harlequin Heartwarming authors have banded together to release this amazing Christmas anthology for only $0.99!

Just wanted to let you know about it so that you don’t miss out! It releases October 1, but you can pre-order now. 🙂


I haven’t always been very good at taking a rest from my work. I love writing books, and I’m the kind of person whose passion can take over her entire life. (This is a good thing for my marriage with Mr. Johns who gets the benefit of a wife who loves him with that kind of passion, too, but a bad thing when it comes to taking proper time off.)

Lately, Mr. Johns and I have been enjoying reading together on the weekends. (I’m rather proud of myself for this work/life balance.) I snapped a picture of Mr. Johns reading because I think he’s such a handsome guy! He’s reading some John Grisham, and I’m reading The Hunchback of Notre Dame. I do love some dramatic Gothic fiction!

(If you click on the pictures, you can see a bigger version. You might notice Mr. Johns’s bookmark. I made that one just for him. ❤ )

These are the things I’ve been enjoying the last week! I hope you’re finding some quality reading time in your busy lives, too!

Happy reading!
