This Spring Break, my husband took some time off of work, and we did a bunch of home renovations as a family. I’d been dying to fix things up a bit, but I tended to get voted down. No one really wanted to do it. So when I marched out to Home Depot and came home with a can of paint, I figured I could paint one wall a weekend, and get it all done myself in a couple of months. Luckily, Mr. Johns thought I was painting wrong, and decided to show me how to do it, which sped the process up considerably. 😉
We really got into it! We painted the entire apartment, including closet doors. We replaced another set of closet doors, and fixed up our kitchen a little, too. We definitely stayed busy, and the end result is just so nice and fresh! Don’t you love crawling into bed at night and smelling that faint, fresh paint smell? Heavenly!
My favourite little addition to our home is actually the cheapest. I bought some faux stained glass removable window film, and not only does it give me that little bit more privacy (because who wants to see me in my bathrobe if I forget to close the blinds?), but I love the colour, too! It just makes me feel happy, and being cooped up as we are in Canada right now with Covid regulations, that little extra bit of cheer inside is necessary.
And that is what we were up to! We’ve spruced up our home, and I’m just so pleased with it!
Here in Alberta, Canada, we are going back into a lockdown now, though, which means we’ll be spending a whole lot more time at home. I’m glad it’s a little cheerier here, because we’ll need it.
Don’t forget about my new releases hitting the shelves soon!

I’m seeing a lot of 5 star reviews from readers who just loved it. THE PREACHER’S DAUGHTER will be hitting the shelves in June of this year, and you can preorder it now to make sure you get it as soon as it releases.
Look what the FedEx driver brought me! I’m so thrilled to have these ARCs of THE PREACHER’S DAUGHTER because they are going to be a part of some upcoming giveaways for those of you who have been waiting for a chance to get your hands on this one!
THE PREACHER’S DAUGHTER is the second book in the INFAMOUS AMISH miniseries, following the story of Elizabeth Yoder, daughter of the disgraced Amish preacher who defrauded their community. Elizabeth just wants to move on with her life, but she doesn’t feel right leaving for a new community until she knows her little sister is safe. So she accepts an invitation to help the elderly Bridget Lantz for a few weeks.
But when Bridget’s grandson, Solomon arrives home fresh from a stint in prison, Elizabeth is determined to keep her distance. But in a community where the Yoders aren’t to be trusted, rugged, muscular Sol is the only one who understands her position, ironically enough. And as she watches the young man struggle with hard memories and his own hopes of a fresh start, she can’t help but feel some sympathy for him.
But sympathy can be dangerous, especially when coupled with the kind of attraction that seems to be brewing between them.
Starting on February 24th, I have a brand new giveaway beginning on my Facebook page! As soon as I post it, the giveaway will be pinned to the top of the page, so it’s easy to find. This time, I’m teaming up with fan favorite, Rachel J. Good.
So this is a little sneak peek! If you’re on Facebook, and you haven’t come by to give me a like yet, definitely do! I have constant giveaways going on on my page, and we have a lot of fun!
I have another cover to show you–this one is for my May 2021 release called THE PREACHER’S DAUGHTER. This is book 2 in my INFAMOUS AMISH miniseries.
Do you love this cover as much as I do? Because I couldn’t be happier with it!
The first book in this miniseries is released 2021, and I can’t wait to share these stories with you!
When popular preacher Abe Yoder is arrested for fraud, the entire Amish community of Bountiful, Pennsylvania is rocked, and his young adult children are left to put their lives back together again.
The Amish believe in forgiveness, but they’re human, too, and forgetting is a whole other challenge…
So when Elizabeth Yoder meets Solomon Lantz, she’s determined to keep her distance. He’s been to prison. He knows how to fight, how to hit harder and take a punch. And he’s got the kind muscle that’s only built by lifting weights behind prison walls… She needs someone safe, not this dangerous, emotionally scarred bad boy who’s bent on protecting her from English troublemakers.
