DO THE SHAW BROTHERS SERIES BOOKS NEED TO BE READ IN ORDER?


            Yes and no.  The first book BETTER WITH TIME and the second book TRUST IN TIME are both stand alone novels; however, some secondary characters appear in the second book.  As to the third book TIME TO STAY, secondary characters are a much more integral part of the story and were brought back to help plan a very special family event, so it is recommended you read the books in order.


DO YOUR BOOKS HAVE SEX AND PROFANITY?


            Yes.  I don’t think there is an excessive amount of swearing in my books, and I try to only use certain words or phrases when I feel it truly fits the scene.  As to sex scenes, my books usually have one primary sex scene, and I write the scene within a chapter all on its own. If you are uncomfortable with this topic, skipping that particular chapter will not affect the rest of the story.

WHY AREN’T YOUR BOOKS AVAILABLE ON NOOK OR ITUNES?

            Although I hope to offer these options in the near future, as a self-published author who is still trying to find her wings in the vast publishing world, I have learned that in self-publishing you have to wear many hats, which requires a great deal of dedication and time.  Working through Amazon.com’s platform is the most efficient way for me to get my books published in a timely and professional manner.  If you don’t have a Amazon Kindle, the free app is available for most phone and tablets through Google Play.  Additionally, all my books are available in print.

WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NOW?

            I am currently working on a contemporary romance series, HEATHER VALLEY.  This series will give me the opportunity to write many stories about the lives and loves of several different people living in this charming community.

IF YOU HAD ONE WISH FOR A READER AFTER FINISHING ONE OF YOUR BOOKS, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

            Obviously I hope my readers enjoy the stories, characters, and delight in witnessing the budding romances, but my hope would be that when you finish reading one of my books, you feel it touched your heart in some way.
 
ARE YOU AVAILABLE TO TALK TO MY BOOK CLUB?

            Yes, I can participate in online chats with your book club. I can also provide a Readers Guide with provocative questions. Please email me with your request.
