As the sun stretched its morning rays gently over the farm,

once again. Phoenix
"Do you like it?" CJ asked quietly.
She couldn't speak, but simply nodded and held out her hand to him.
CJ took her hand and led her to stand in front of the sliding glass doors that enclosed the deck, making it a cozy retreat with a fire burning in the outdoor fireplace.

you okay with getting married?" Phoenix
nodded. "I still can't quite believe something so beautiful has come into
my life. Then all the old fears and doubts start crowding into my head. But my

AUTHOR Bio and Links:
I'm an optimist whose rose-colored glasses have bent frames and cracked lenses. When life kicks me in the teeth, I find miracles and lessons I refused to learn an easier way. In fact, I live with a small herd of miracles in the furry forms of dogs, who are constantly trying to teach me to forgive, to play more, and to love without limits. I write about people who find courage and integrity in the darkest times of their lives, who rescue stray dogs and kittens, who find a person they would willingly give their lives for, and who make their little corners of the world a better place. People have remarked my stories "aren't what they expected." With rose-colored glasses firmly in place, I take that as a compliment. I invite you to share a piece of my world in the pages of a book, and hope you find some surprises, some tears, some laughter, and always a happy ending.
