You’ve got a friend

Sometimes you just need a friend. 

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and things are a bit different this year. These are some very difficult times that we are living in right now. I am doing a Friend Check-in. Showing support for other people who might be struggling. We can’t connect in person, so let’s connect virtually. Leave a blog comment or a Facebook comment, however you got to this page. I promise to reply, because after all, we're all in this together.

I also promised you a sneak peek at the next cover. I think you'll like the story, and I included the original legend in the acknowledgments. What's it about?

The Legend People of canyon country are protected by the indigenous Tribes, but that protection prevents Nascha from finding out what happened to her missing mother. When another of the Legend People shows up in Nascha’s canyon on a quest to beg leniency from the ruling Coyote, Nascha is given the opportunity to get the answers she seeks. On their way to the Coyote’s canyon, they get caught in the downdraft from a plane that carries them off course to Illinois. Now they must enlist the help of the pilot to get back to Utah.

Pilot Devin Sike mistakes the mysterious woman who follows him at the airport for a Native American Princess. Lost, she asks him to transport her back to Utah—a request he’s disinclined to accommodate—until she triggers an echo in his heart, a pinger beacon that synchronizes when she touches him. The more he finds out about her, the more determined he is to come to terms with his own lost heritage.

Their journey enlightens them both to a destiny neither expected.

What do you think?

Yes, you can preorder it

Finally, I want to take a moment to be thankful for everything I have, and not feel victimized by current circumstances. While I may not be with family, which makes me sad, I am thankful for the family I have. We can still connect, even if not in person. I'm thankful for children, for grandchildren, for sisters and cousins and friends.

Wishing you a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.


  1. Have a safe Thanksgiving. We're going to be just the 2 of us. Our two "local" kids are splitting the menu and doing a porch drop to trade dishes.

    1. That’s a great idea. That way tou can still share and you have a bit of everyone represented.

  2. Miss our old Thanksgivings with cousins like you. Best wishes on your new interesting book!

    1. Thanks, Janell. Miss you, too! All the years we spent Thanksgiving together... thankful for those times.
