Cross-Ties Now On Audible

Quote of the Day“Every moment is a fresh beginning.” T.S. Eliot

These are some exciting times as we push forward into the summer months. And, like you, I’m dealing with the never-ceasing catastrophic events happening around and to us. I hope as a collective body we can successfully overcome the obstacles in our paths to excellence and move into a new normal with peace and joy.

Cross-Ties: Historical Romance

Today I want to talk about Cross-Ties, a historical romance about the immigration of the Landry family to the Americas. As in most all my novels, there’s a water theme, in this case, an ocean to cross albeit with pirates. This is a coming of age story that depicts the cultural separation of people. The rebel, lead character Leah, has her own mindset about who she chooses to love and embrace. Follow her journey, fraught with danger at every turn.

Follow Leah’s journey …

Learning to Love in Turbulent Times

Quote of the Day: “Becoming conscious of what we’ve learned unconsciously (about love relationships) is a necessary step in getting control over our love lives.” Dr. Thomas Jordan

We are beginning a new month amidst a global pandemic never experienced in our lifetimes. This deadly virus has catapulted us into severe economic conditions when we were expecting growth and prosperity.

Adding to our mental overload is civil unrest from generations of pent-up grief turned to anger over righteous grievances. This painful reality resulted in the loss of and/or injuries to personal lives. The trail of destruction in our cities adds another blow to businesses trying to hang on until we reach a new normal. 

As a nation, we need a peaceful way to spearhead and process change. It’s time we came together and looked for answers to solve our problems. I believe the first step is looking at ourselves and our love relationships. Learn to Love: Guide to Healing Your Disappointing Love Life by Dr. Thomas Jordan resonated with me. 

Learn to love

This is my review for this timely book that I recently posted on Goodreads. I hope you’ll give it a chance to warm your heart and create an understanding that’ll help you live a love-centered fulfilling life.

Learn to Love: Guide to Healing Your Disappointing Love Life by Thomas Jordan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Learn to Love was an amazing find for learning about how to develop and maintain healthy love relationships. The content is informative and provides a well-structured guide for fleshing out problems and resolving them to become a better version of you in your love relationships.

Thomas Jordan Ph.D. provides expert analysis of what a love relationship is and isn’t. He then leads us through the discovery process as a professional complete with exercises to further our learning on our own or by following his offerings: seminars, webinar, and private consultation.

The book is built upon his clinical research over the course of his thirty-year practice and his personal experiences. The outcome has substantial value to us for envisioning, learning, and creating the love life we desire.

This book will teach you something about your love life and broaden the chances of your finding and sustaining a healthy love relationship. A 21st Century Love Relationship Class that provides the training we need in today’s world. A must-read!

A Whale of a Tale: Beach Reads

Quote of the Day

“There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.” – Walt Disney

Photo Credit: Pixabay

I’m tickled pink-well almost. A peachy vanilla cream would be a more accurate description. None the less, I’m happy! The Long Road Home is taking its place as a top beach read this summer and why not – the scenery includes beach towns.

The main character Kate is living in Charleston South Carolina where her parents were killed in an automobile accident and she found out her fiancé is a cheater. She decides to travel to a property she’d inherited from her grandmother (Seagrove) on the Gulf of Mexico (FL) to make sense of her life.

Her family had a long history of secrets and she was about to uncover the worst of them. From old villains striking out to gain her inheritance, to the discovery her father wasn’t who she thought he was, and murder was the go-to strategy for those closest to her family. She floundered and, then fought to regain her footing to make sense of the tragedies heaped on her without cause.

Living a sheltered life she was unequipped to deal with recent life events. Who could she trust? The next-door neighbor rancher who helps makes Seagrove livable again or perhaps the government agent who knew more about her family than she.

Kate matures and sees things as they are – not as she’d believed much of her life. And, her fiancé – well that’s an interesting tale.
