One item not listed on my lists of books is my selection included in an anthology called "Crazy Woman Creek: Women Rewrite the American West" published by Houghton Mifflin I also have a piece in Storytellers II, a book published a few years ago by Multnomah Press and a few short selections in Daily Guideposts of a few years back. My first novella, "The Courting Quilt" is part of a collection that made the New York Times bestsellers this past September in a collection called Log Cabin Christmas. The rest of my writing, as they say, is history. Or it was until my first contemporary came out this fall. Called Barcelona Calling, it's the story of a writer who loses her way as she seeks fulfillment thinking she'll find it with fame. It's a laugh out loud book according to reviewers. I hope you'll enjoy it.

 My Thoughts

As I said in my previous reviews of this book, I loved this collection of stories. Each one of them are amazing by themselves, but by putting them all together in this way kept me reading from one to the next with ease. 

So for the fifth story: The Courting Quilt

This story is similar to the way things work today. How sometimes big wants to take over small. About putting your trust in something or someone just because you may have a feeling. Going for something you may want even if the odds are or may be against you. 

I loved how role refusal just happens some times. I will not give away this story. But the title may not help you figure any thing that could happen in this story. And I absolutely loved the ending. A Must Must Read...  Who knows you may end up finding out about what actually a Courting Quilt is. I have heard of many different kinds of quilts, because I love to quilt. But had never heard of this one.
