A novel’s official Release Day is a cause for celebration.

It’s a bit like the day a new child enters the world.  Gestating for months, even years, its arrival is expected.  But seeing it, holding it, brings all the efforts of nourishment into perspective.

Today, 12.09.2016, is just such a day for Herald Angels, my latest novel with The Wild Rose Press.


On further examination, this novel has been years in the making.  I’m sharing my secrets as to what inspired the locations of New York City and Bland, Virginia, my characters, and how both mesh, on my publisher’s blog.
