Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom and my great friend (and second Mom)

 Happy Mommy’s Day to the Moms of the world 🙂 I have two great Moms.

Here’s my mom, who has raised nine children, helped out with lots of grandchildren, and is my best friend. And somehow, she stayed sane. I love you more than words could say, Mom. Thank you 🙂

My other ‘mom’ I consider a second mom and a very close friend of mine. She’s been there through a lot of hard times, cheering my writing career on, giving me encouragement, and loving me for being me. Her name is Sherry Martin-Cantrell. And she’ll probably kick my butt for putting up her picture, but it’s all good 🙂

Two of the greatest Moms in the world. Hope you Moms have a wonderful and blessed day.


Friday Facts: I have Rebecca Heflin, author of The Promise of Change

It’s great to have you here Rebecca! So, tell us five facts about yourself.

I’m a Pisces

I was a ballet dancer in my former life

I have a shoe fetish

I love old classic movies (think Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers, Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn)

I’m crazy about Jane Austen, including fan fiction

A ballet dancer, huh? I do admire you. And a foot fetish to boot! I’m a sucker for Cary Grant too. It was great having you here today. Check out Rebecca Heflin’s The Promise of Change at Soul Mate Publishing, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.

You can find Rebecca:


Sarah Edwards loves stability, but now finds life has other plans for her. Divorced, bored, and twitchy, she’s convinced her impulsive, sometimes irrational decisions are the sign of a mid-life crisis, and the contradictory actions and emotions are giving her family and friends mental whiplash. Her abrupt resignation from her job is the final straw. But a two-week trip to England seems the perfect pick-me-up for this Anglophile and Austenite.
Enter Alex Fraser, a.k.a. the Earl of Rutherford, who although a member of the lucky sperm club, prefers to be known for what he’s accomplished, rather than a fate of birth. Despite his family’s disapproval, he is determined to work in his chosen profession of acting. He’s always preferred casual flings with beautiful women who have no illusions of marriage. That is until he literally bumps into Sarah in an Oxford pub.
Despite an idyllic week together, Sarah gets cold feet and returns to the states determined to come back down to reality. A year later, the realization of Sarah’s life-long dream unexpectedly brings Alex back into her life, in what she believes is an ironic twist of fate. Will Sarah’s decisions leave her life in shambles, or will they lead to the promise of change?

I’ll give you a small excerpt of Secrets of Jenkins Bridge, which is set to release on June 6th!

Mitchell let go of Katherine’s hand and slipped his notepad from his pocket, fidgeting with the paper’s corner.

“Where have you been for the last fifteen years?”

“Katherine …”
“Doesn’t really matter now, does it?” The sarcasm oozed from her lips.
“I guess not.”
“Maybe it should. Maybe you left more behind than you realize.” How would he react to finding out he was a father? Maybe he already was one? For all she knew, he could have a family complete with a wife. Peeking at his left hand folding and unfolding the corner of the paper, there wasn’t a ring. Not even a white line where one may have sat.
