Quote of the Day: “One benefit of Summer was that each day we had more light to read by.” Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle

Summer,CM Bowen Author, The Writing LifeSummer officially begins on Tuesday, June 20th in the Northern Hemisphere. It fades away on September 22nd after several wonderful months of frolicking fun in the blissful dreamy days and nights. To have a book tucked away for reading in nature, and while fulfilling the everyday demands of life, is a delightful release from cares.

Panama City Beach FL, The Writing Life, Carolyn M. Bowen Author

I’m ready for summer fun and time with my family at our favorite gathering place, the beaches of NW Florida. Not to be taken away from enjoying every moment of the springtime, it is nice to have nice events to look forward too and great books to read.

Let me tell you about my latest mystery-thriller, The Long Road Home. You’ll instantly be taken on a journey with Kate as she discovers things are not as they appear. Her life is grand or so she believes. Kate’s beautiful, loved by her prominent family, has great digs in Charleston and a handsome fiancé on the fast track to becoming the next super lawyer. The brutal truth facing her includes murder, betrayal, conspiracy, and lots of looking over her shoulder. (Charleston Sunset, Photo Credit: Sean Clyde, C & C Media)
