Each year, Melissa McClone puts together an amazing donation for her local Fisher House. For those who don’t know (I didn’t) Fisher Houses provide military families housing close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury. As you can imagine, this is a traumatic time for families, many of which includes young children and overwhelmed mothers.
Melissa solicits donations of books and other pampering, self-care items, including some stuff for kids and packs them into lovely insulated thermal totes can also be used to safely transport breastmilk. You know, for those many moms who need to be in two places at once.
This is a fantastic cause, people, and it strikes close to home on two counts for me. I’ve always believed in the power of books to transport us, especially in times of distress, plus I’m a huge advocate for breastfeeding and was a peer counselor for new moms for many years when my own children were young.
Contributing to this is an honor for me. Will you help support us? Melissa’s put together some great prizes, as her way of saying thanking you for being our readers.

So, I got my hair cut today. I’ve worn it long for quite some time now – usually in a ponytail or clip – and I’m a little tired of it. I tend to chicken out when it comes to major change, so I figured I’d just get a trim and color touch up. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?
So it occurred to me it might be time for a change. But what? A purple streak? An asymmetrical layered bob? A pixie cut? The possibilities are endless.
I’ve tried a few different styles over the years and my three very fashionable daughters have provided much helpful feedback. “Don’t ever do that again, Mom,” is a favorite comment, when looking through old photos. “I love your hair exactly as it is,” my husband reminds me regularly. Very sweet, except for the glint of fear in his eye.
Change can be scary – but it can be great, too.
My publisher is currently re-covering all the books in my first contemporary romance series, THREE RIVER RANCH. Two of the books are keeping the original art, but updating the look. And three of them have received total make-overs. And let me say, I love them all! What do you think? Which one’s your favorite?
As far as my hair goes, this is where I landed.
