Romance Writers Weekly


Happy Tuesday! We are so happy you are joining us today. It means so much. And we hope your week is starting out well!

Here is this week’s challenge:

Share one of your hobbies. What do you do when you’re not writing?

Actually I have several hobbies and I tend to alternate in no particular order. I choose which to do based on what is needed. One is sewing. I make many of my own clothes since I can never find what I like in the stores. I love color and tropical patterns and, living in the heat of a summer in Florida, outfits have to breathe. So when I come across some beautiful fabric, I feel obligated to make a dress or a blouse.

I also make jewelry. Now I have an abundance of pieces, so I make presents for my friends. That hobby kicks in around Christmas and birthdays. I just love working with semi-precious stones and making bling.

My last favorite hobby is painting. And yes, I have painted rooms in our house, but I also do canvases. I work in acrylic and, as mentioned above, I love color, the brighter the better.

Now, none of these hobbies will ever make me rich or famous, but they do help me focus on writing when I’m stuck on a plot point or trying to come up with a new idea. And I usually end up with something pretty useful.

Now let’s hop over to the fantastic and talented Jill Haymaker and hear about her hobby…

But first…

There’s nothing more romantic than a Colorado Winter Moon. Sam Phillips has given up on love since the death of his wife. With only his small dog, Marshall, for company, he’s content to live out his life alone. That is until he meets the perky and vivacious, Vickie Dalton at her son’s wedding. There’s just something about her that makes him want to reopen his closed heart.

Vickie, widowed at a young age, has spent her life raising her children and grandchildren in Tumbleweed, Wyoming. Romance for herself is the farthest thing from her mind when she travels to Colorado for the wedding. But when she looks into those bright blue eyes, she senses that Sam in one of a kind. Is she too old to take a chance on love, especially if it means leaving her home and grandchildren behind?

Under the glow of a Colorado winter moon, can these two lonely people discover a passion they thought was long gone. Can they find a way to juggle family and location to be together?

Come home to Peakview, Colorado where everyone has a chance at love.
