    When I was in the stage of getting feedback on early drafts of this book, more than one reader told me they wished I would just come out and say precisely when and where the story takes place. “It’s obviously American,” they said. “Why not just name the town? And why not just say what year it is? Why do we have to guess?” Well, because I said…


Season of Change

Friday, October 11, 2013

(Let me introduce you to my one-eyed wonder dog, Luna.) When I was a girl, my mom owned a book called Color Me Beautiful. Based on your hair and skin coloring, it prescribed your best wardrobe and makeup palette, and it divided the palettes by season. My mom’s black hair and fair skin made her a winter, which meant she wore jewel-toned colors. Ruby, sapphire, emerald. She was veritable walking…

Big Changes by Deb Meredith

As a child, summer meant months of unstructured time. School ended, and the days took on a different rhythm. I spent hours reading, writing, drawing, and swimming. I would make elaborate plans to sew things or build things, and then actually have the time to complete my projects. We sometimes took a trip somewhere new, and usually made a return trip to the ocean. But this summer, as soon as…

Spring Gets In My Eyes by Deb Danielle Younge-Ullman

I love spring as much as anyone. Okay, maybe not quite as much as anyone. Which isn’t to say I don’t love it or that I’m not happy to have winter over with. I do and I am. I’m taking long walks with my dog and smiling more and even rhapsodizing about flowers now and then. But you know from my title where this is going, don’t you? I have…

Spring Fever – has made a fool of me. By Guest Author Molly O’Keefe

Molly O’Keefe grew up in a small town outside of Chicago. She met and married her college sweetheart and moved to Toronto to embrace her inner Maple Leafs fan. Molly sold her first Harlequin Duets at age 25 and hasn’t looked back! She has since sold 15 books to Harlequin Duets, Flipside and Superromance. Her last Flipside, Dishing It Out, and her December 2007 Superromance Baby Makes Three, both won…

Open Windows by Deb Tish

I have a theory. There are air conditioning people and there are open window people. I’m into open windows. To me, there’s nothing more irritating than waiting for the warmth of summer, only to return to shivery temperatures in overly air conditioned stores, banks, movie theaters. Thankfully, my husband is an open window guy. We open up the house as soon as it’s warm enough in May and keep it open…

The Smell of Summer by Deb Tish

For me, nothing evokes magical childhood summers like the smell of an old house, especially that of a smoker. My sister and I spent summers at our grandparents’ place. Each year, she and I would board a propeller plane without parents and fly an hour to Hamilton, Ontario, where our grandfather waited in the tiny airport, smoking homemade unfiltered cigarettes and beaming. These summers were delicious with danger. Every day began at the…
