Thank you LASR for the opportunity to stop by and reach out to your readers. I love talking so this should be a lot of fun, lol!
Ahhhh, spring! The smell of flowers in the air, trees stretching brand new leaves toward the sky in supplication, and sunshine warming skin frozen by winter’s grip these are the thing that make spring one of my very favorite seasons. Things gone dormant to survive winter are given new life. Birds return in all their glory to sing to you from the boughs, or, well, your bird feeders.
Grass grows, flowers bloom, people sneeze, you’ve got to cut grass again, and yes—your feet go from perpetually freezing to so warm you must start painting your toenails so you can go barefoot again.
I love spring. And one of my very favorite things to do can only be done during this time. At least where I live. What is that favorite thing you ask? For me, it’s simple really. I love sitting on the porch, watching the world around me go through a metamorphosis of rebirth and delight. I love watching baby squirrels frolic in the trees. I love watching baby birds learn to fly. I love the colors, the smells, the promise of heat in the air—I love the NEWNESS, that feeling that something amazing is headed your way and if you’ll just take a few minutes to sit on your porch, or out in your driveway and watch or listen, you won’t miss it. It won’t pass you by. It’s about brand new chances and the promise of growth.
I write best in the spring months, another reason it’s my favorite season. I’m the most productive during the months of March through June. It’s not too cold and not too hot. Birds hit the bird feeders outside my windows providing a respite from hours at the laptop. I have three teenage girls and all the good stuff happens in the spring months—prom, spring break, graduation. Spring brings those thunderstorms that never fail to make my belly squirm in fear but also bring the rains that make the flowers come out of hiding.
By the time summer arrives, it’s just too hot in Georgia to sit on the porch, even if you’ve got fans. By the time summer rolls around you’ve got to be on the lake or at the beach, somewhere the water can cool you off. I enjoy both of those activities, but I love my porch.
So now that we’ve established my favorite spring activity, what’s yours? Do you canoe? Hike? Plant? Sit on your porch and watch the world wake up? Tell me! I’d love to know.
If reading is your favorite spring activity, or really just a favorite activity any time of year, I’ve got a brand new release that could help you fill your time—Flash of Fury. The first full-length from my Endgame Ops series, I’m bringing you international intrigue, suspense, action, and a romance that will stand the test of time. Pick up King and Allie’s story. Let me help you celebrate the arrival of spring!
Thank you, LASR! Xoxoxo
Their spark is immediate
Kingston McNally lost men when someone betrayed his team, and now he’s out for retribution. His quest for the enemy’s courier leads him to Cameroon and Allie Redding, a petite Peace Corps volunteer as stubborn as she is brave. Their attraction is immediate, but Allie has secrets of her own…and she’s not giving them up easily.
But their secrets could burn them both
Allie’s life has been spent hiding in plain sight, but she’s had enough of her cloak-and-dagger existence. On her way home, her plane is hijacked—and King saves her life. But that doesn’t mean she owes him anything…even if he is the most damnably sexy man she’s ever laid eyes on. He’s got black ops and secrets written all over him, and trust is a two-way street.
