I’ve always enjoyed books about independent women who are strong enough to successfully run a business and balance that with family. If there is a man in the story for her, that’s even better.
With the publication of my first book, Quilts Galore, you’ll meet Marianna Spencer, a professional quilter; her family, the attractive craftsman next door and the tight-knit, supportive community of Wolf Creek Square.
I brought my love of quilting to this story. I share Marianna’s love of fabrics and quilt patterns, and some of my award winning pieces were original designs. I have many boxes of fabrics and enjoy visiting quilt shops and quilt shows.
I’ve also brought a touch of history into the story. Sometimes it is fun to learn who were the settlers and how they forged homes and towns from the wilderness and how that history influences the lives and loves of the current residents.
I hope you enjoy reading about Marianna and her friends in Quilts Galore.
Next up for me is Country Law, my next novel in the Wolf Creek Square series.
Hi Gini, just finished reading Quilts Galore and really enjoyed it. Looking forward to book #2 Country Law. When will it be out? Hope you have it available again at Kendra’s Stitching Bee. All my best to you and your future books. Hope you still get time to quilt in between writing. I go in spurts, a quilt here, hooked rug there – gardening, punch needle, spinning, cross stitch and basket weaving as time and mood inspire me. Love it all, so jack of all trades and master of none. Take care, Jeanne 🙂
