Excerpt
Once more dressed in jeans and her well-worn cowboy boots, with a jacket thrown on to ward off the chill evening air, Phoenix walked.

Against a backdrop of blue-green mountain peaks and the lightly wooded hillsides closer to the farm, the hens were settling in their coop, with only an occasional soft clucking.

Inside the boldly painted red barn, horses whickered in their stalls. She breathed deeply of the scents of horse and hay as she ambled through the dusty structure, then opened the side door and walked into the llama’s pasture.

The male immediately approached her and nuzzled her cheek as she slung her arm around him. “I love you too, Romeo.”

She closed her eyes and relaxed against the animal’s woolly neck. However, her relaxation ended abruptly when the animal stiffened and emitted a shrill cry.

Following the animal’s gaze, Phoenix saw CJ standing on the other side of the corral with his arms folded on the top board. “Will your llama spit in my face?”

“It’s alright, Romeo.” Phoenix patted the llama, then walked slowly toward the man who had occupied too much of her thoughts lately. “What brings you out this way?”

“You left the Governor’s presentation right after you talked to Mitch. I wanted to be sure you were okay.”

All the memories she had been trying to walk off slammed into Phoenix once more. “What is okay? I’m not sure I’ve ever been okay or ever will be. How can I find normal or happy when I don’t think I’ve experienced those things?”

“You come up your own version of what makes you happy.”

“A woman is dead because of me. How can I ever be happy knowing that?”

“Mitch said Swaggerty was waiting for Charlene. If it hadn’t been that night, he would have killed her another way.”

Phoenix let that statement sink in. One part of her brain knew that was true. So why did she cling to the blame for Charlene’s death? Maybe she was afraid to move forward.

About the Author:7_9 GenieGabrielPhotoI’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.

    You remind me a lot of me! I love your attitude. Any stray that comes my way, I take in. Thanks for sharing today!!

    • Hi, Dawn! I’ve found those “strays” are angels in furry disguises. The benefits of sharing my life with them far outweighs the drawbacks. So glad you stopped by!

    • The heroine in LEGACY REBORN grows and heals so much in this story. She was written in honor of kids and adults I’ve seen overcome great odds to become shining stars. 🙂
