It's been a while. This has been a bit of a year. I've received several journalism teaching awards, including being named Missouri's High School Journalism Teacher of the Year. I was also a Journalism Education Association Distinguished Yearbook Adviser of the Year, and in November I will be recognized by the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund as a Special Recognition Adviser as part of its Teacher of the Year competition. Personally, my mother passed away in January. While she had Parkinson's and was entering stage five, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor and died four days later. Her transition was peaceful and painless, for which my family and I will forever be grateful. My oldest daughter is now in college, and my youngest a junior in high school. So finally, after some time off, I am determined to pick back up the pace of writing. Sometimes family has to come first, and this was one of those times. Thanks for your understanding and support during this time. I am back.

Yes, it's been a while since I've updated. This past year I took a well deserved sabbatical. After doing 23 books in 10 years, I figured a bit of time off wouldn't hurt. During that time I relocated my mother's household to a senior living facility. My daughter had migraines and we ended up going with Botox to alleviate them. I did a lot of travel. I also finished my eighth year teaching. Now it's back to writing.

Thrilled to present my cover for Baby in the Boardroom, my Feb. 2010 release.
First Comes Baby…
After her latest boyfriend breaks things off, Kristi Jensen can’t help but wonder
what’s wrong with her. As if that isn’t bad enough, her parents are pressuring
her to find a husband. So the unluckyin-love executive does the next best thing:
she asks Mitch Robbins, her tall, dark, traffic-stoppingly gorgeous personal assistant,
for a kiss.
But She Gets More Than She Bargained For.…
Corporate Rule #1: Never date your boss. Too late. Ever since they spent the night together, Mitch is more in love with Kristi than ever. And when she suggests they start dating to
thwart her matchmaking father, he’s only too happy to oblige.
That’s before he learns he’s going to be a father.… With his new family’s future at stake, can he forgive Kristi’s deception?
And will Kristi realize in time that Mitch is the man she’s been waiting for all along?
