Seeing the Bright Side of Romance & Fantasy

How knitting came to Rowan Harbor

So a funny thing happened a few months ago. Those of you who know me personally have heard the story of how I came to writing m/m romance: someone mentioned their favorite book, The Lightning-Struck Heart by TJ Klune, and I asked them for more information. After listening to it, and then reading and listening to a few hundred other books in the genre, I was inspired to actually finish writing a book and publish my own work. It came full circle in November, when on the same podcast where I first heard The Lightning-Struck Heart mentioned, I heard my own pen name. (~32 minutes in)

Many thanks to Laura and Leslie for making my day!

    That is so cool, because that’s the way I came to love your books 🙂 Through the KnitGirllls, I’ve read all 6 of Rowan Harbor that are out right now and – truly – yesterday I sat down to knit and listened to the audio book of Blackbird in the reeds.

      Knitting while listening to audiobooks is pretty much my favorite thing. I might have a small audio problem… or a big one.

      I hope you enjoy Chris’s performance!

        Yeah, well I might have grabbed the next two books on audio. So now I’m waiting for audio and books to come out….. 🙂

          Next book is soooo soon! The audio might be a little longer, but I’m still hoping to get both out there.
