Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

A Love Story…A Day Later

Yesterday was Valentine's Day, but I didn't get the love story until today. Please meet my new author friend, Diana Lesire Brandmeyer. I met Diana in January through the Ultimate Blog Challenge. She is the author of the children's book that I'm illustrating. Diana is a Christian author, that also writes contemporary and historical romance.

I just finished reading her brand new book "A Mind Of Her Own".  A stay at home mom, Louisa Copeland, mother of three, wife of attorney Collin Copeland, has an accident that causes her to lose her memory and wake up in the hospital as author, Jazz Sweet (whom I definitely think I am.) Jazz likes bright colors, is a disaster in the kitchen and just has that need to get the words out. (See? Who does that sound like?) I love when I see myself in one of the characters, and my husband in the other – the author has done her job and the read is exhilarating and inspirational. 

Diana told this story from a beautiful place. It's the story of a broken marriage and a broken person stitched together in scenes that touched my heart. Diana's style is my favorite – the writer falls away and the story takes center stage, making it a quality read. After I close the cover and come back to the world in my family room, I'm taken by surprise that the author is someone I know and I'm stunned by their talent.

Diana knows her way around a well-written novel. "A Mind of Her Own" is a quick read (mainly because, right from the get-go, you can't put it down) and has that ability to take you into someone else's life. Through humor and family banter you are right there in the Copeland household, watching the story unfold. I highly recommend downloading it today for the weekend. I think it's still on sale for $1.99 on Amazon, but it's definitely worth the full price.

And so, as another day goes by, thank you Diana for bringing some Valentine love into my heart, it's been a pleasure getting to know you, and…I have written.
