A Salute to children and a giveaway!

Having children is a unique experience. Before I had kids, I'd been free to walk away from people in my life. You can walk away from a spouse or even keep unruly parents at arm's length. But when my children were born, I knew a whole new kind of love. A love I could never walk away from.
My children brought out a love so strong in me that it scared me. 

Suddenly I was vulnerable in a different way. After the initial shock, it was a wonderful feeling.

Although my children are grown, my love and devotion to them still beats strong in my heart. 

They have brought me more joy than I ever thought possible and heartache so deep I wondered if I would survive.
Because my children have made such a huge impact on my life, I often write love stories about people with children. 


I enjoy including children in my books.

My first romance novel, A Caribbean Summer, had a little boy in it. He was patterned after my own son when he was that age (about 5 if I remember correctly). In fact, I've used him in several of my novels. I doubt that he's even aware of it. Lovely, lovely blog, Jean.

Nearly everything I write has children or the promise of them. I like to put some cute little part of my own children in my stories.
