Our New Normal
Things have changed drastically since March 2020. But, as resilient Americans, we’re adapting with grace and dignity. We’re doing our part to suppress the spread of the Coronavirus by sheltering in place. Staying at home isn’t easy. We miss our friends and family. We’re emotionally drained, looking to connect with others on social media and through other means of communication. Our books are more important to us than ever. But this too shall pass. We’ll get through these challenging times by supporting one another.
Are you missing your book peeps? I’d love to chat with your book group via Zoom? It’s easy-peasy. Once we agree on a date, I’ll schedule the meeting in Zoom and send the link to your coordinator to distribute to your group. Great, if you’d like to pick one of my books to read and discuss. If not, I’m happy to chat with you about my writing process or simply answer any questions you might have.
A Zoom session will go something like this . . .

If you enjoyed the Sweeney Sisters series, you're gonna love Palmetto Island!
Birdie Fuller’s new year is off to a bad start. Her husband has mysteriously disappeared, leaving Birdie to cope with their unmarried daughter’s unplanned pregnancy. Birdie and Hannah disagree about the baby. Birdie urges her daughter to consider abortion, but Hannah is determined to see the pregnancy to term. When Hannah returns for her last semester in college, Birdie must face her demons, the problems in her marriage that drove her husband to clean out their bank accounts and run off with another woman.
While struggling to hide her pregnancy from her roommates and ex-boyfriend, Hannah interviews for jobs that will take her and her baby far away from her mother. After graduation, with months to kill before the start of her new job, she returns to Palmetto Island for the summer to await the birth of her baby. Tension mounts between Hannah and Birdie when they move from their waterfront home to a two-bedroom apartment above a bakery. Can mother and daughter mend their relationship? Or will they be lost to each other forever?
