Redwood Coast

This week I'm working feverishly on my third book in a Heartsong Presents series, which hopefully will be called Redwood Coast. All the stories are set in very Northern California in the coastal redwoods--one of my favorite places in the world.

If I can figure out how to get all those digital photos I took of our hikes off my ancient mac, I'll try to post a few here. As a child I dreamed of visiting the redwood forest but living in Texas never imagined I would end up living so close I could drive there for an afternoon hike. However, I'm back in Texas now and God blessed me with the opportunity to write three stories set in the redwoods.

I received my author copy of the first book in that series, Under the Redwood Tree, this weekend.

Here is the back cover copy:

A war hero’s scars are still raw to the touch until a gifted artist paints his heart.

Romeo Merete was wounded in Afghanistan, and multiple surgeries couldn’t restore his face. But his scars run deeper than he ever imagined, and the last thing he expects is the beautiful artist who looks straight through him, threatening to expose his heart.

Camille Westover is one contest away from her dream of an art school scholarship. But she’s lost her inspiration to paint—until a wounded soldier captures her heart. Unfortunately, her dream could lead her far from the one place and the one person she loves the most.

When Camille’s chances of winning are sabotaged and a possible stalker suspected, Romeo is concerned for more than losing the woman he loves to her dream. Can he accept the truth of what Camille sees when she looks at him? Will Camille discover the hope of love that stands before her?
