What is Romance?
Posted Feb 2 2016
With Valentine’s Day approaching, I can’t help but think of romance and just what it means. Of course, everyone has different ways of expressing their feelings, and different things make us feel loved and valued.
The most romantic thing my husband ever did for me was to have the cover flat for my first published novel professionally framed. He knew that this book cover represented a dream come true for me, the culmination of years of hard work and determination, and a major personal achievement. It’s all the more heartwarming that he did this for me when all those years I spent pecking away at my computer, attending writers conference and retreats, and meeting with my critique group meant I had less time for him. Of course he spent much of that time watching the Mavericks and Spurs play basketball, so maybe it wasn’t such a sacrifice. : )
What’s the most romantic thing someone ever did for you, or that you did for someone else? What does romance mean to you? Is it candy and flowers, or something more?

Haha! Our terrier mix and shepherd mix are certainly selective, too. They hear "treat" without fail, but "down" or "no!" don't always register. Raggs is such a cute name!
Reggie certainly looks happy! My own dog, Raggs, has "selective" hearing--and he's not well trained. But. Our dogs are family and we do love them.
Thanks, Barbara! I wish I could write faster, too! My ideas are backing up in my head. : ) I wish my brain had a USB port where I could automatically download the stories from my mind to the page. I'm so glad you enjoyed the book! I'm hard at work on the second one, A Trip with Trouble.
I LOVED getaway with Murder. The second book can't be published soon enough. Can you write any faster? ;-)
Thanks so much, Gerrie! So glad you enjoyed the book, and your kind words put a big smile on my face. The second book in the series, A Trip with Trouble, will release next fall. I'm looking forward to it, too!
