Welcome to the 3rd annual Authors in Bloom Blog Hop. This is my first time and I hope you have as much fun as I am.
Spring is my favorite time of year mainly because of new growth. Since I moved last fall, I had to hurry and plant bulbs so I would have tulips and daffodils this spring. My tulips are poking their heads out of the ground right outside my office window. Here in Michigan we had a horrendous winter. The snow is finally gone around our house. Yay!
Planting spring bulbs is easy and they produce every year, each time more abundantly. The bulbs will multiply until they are too crowded. So every four or five years, it helps to dig them up and divide. Tulips are among the most colorful of the spring bulbs. If you want continuous color, choose bulbs that are early blooming (should say on the package), mid-season and late blooming. For the effort expended one fall, you will enjoy color for many years.
My latest romantic suspense ONE RED SHOE takes place in spring. Here’s the blurb.
Daria Mason’s life is too predictable. Nothing ever happens in her small Iowa town where everybody knows everybody else. But when she travels to New York City looking for a little excitement, she never expects to bring home a wounded spy.
From the moment agent Sam Jozwiak steals intel vital to US security from a Russian Mafia kingpin, Murphy’s Law takes over. No matter how he covers his tracks, the kingpin’s assassins find him. What’s worse than getting shot in the butt? Accepting help from an Iowa tourist.
Sam and Daria flee cross country with the assassins right behind them. Sharing danger and excitement—and a few kisses—with Sam soon has Daria convinced he’s the man for her. He thinks she’ll be better off once he’s out of her life for good. With their lives on the line, can she convince him they belong together?
