Fireworks and Fun for you in July! My favorite time of year down the Jersey Shore is the 4th of July! I love seeing the parades and sitting on the beach watching the fireworks. It’s such a lovely time of year to be able to just hang out, enjoy the weather and friends, and of course, read a good book while sitting on the beach. Here’s a photo for you from this year as we all sit and wait to see the fireworks in Asbury Park, New Jersey. Good news! I am so excited that Publishers Weekly picked One Summer Night as a Top 10 Romance! One Summer Night is the first book in the At the Shore series which is very near and dear to my heart as I get to share one of my very favorite places – the Jersey Shore – and show you how it’s nothing like that show that shall not be named. LOL! If you’d like to get a sneak peek at One Summer Night and the At the Shore series, I’ve been doing some Behind the Scenes you can see by clicking here.

I’ve been known to eat lunch while I write—soup is quite an adventure while you’re typing—and if there’s candy around, it’ll find its way to my desk too. My favorites are Jelly Bellys and gummy candies. Tell us something interesting about Kate and Evan that we won’t find out in the book. I could see those two becoming lovingly competitive after the end of the book. Kate is a crack shot, Evan is resourceful, and they’re both excellent riders. They’d push each other to become better and tease each other a lot along the way. If you had to pick ONE line from SCANDALOUS EVER AFTER as your favorite, what would it be and why? “And beneath the blue sky, they banished the gray.” The hero of SCANDALOUS EVER AFTER, Evan Rhys, has depression—though since he lives in the 1810s, he only knows to…
