Here in my Heart Blog Tour with Anna DeStefano!

Here in My Heart Release Blog Tour

Reader’s Entertainment Guest Appearance



What if you had to work and live with the biggest regret of your youth (who coincidentally is also the man of your dreams, AND the one who got away), or you would lose the home and the business that mean everything to you?




Communities and small towns—and the love and life-long friendships you discover in these magical places—fascinate me.


I’ve been writing about the families that thrive in close-knit communities my entire career. The good and the bad. The old and the new. And isn’t the old always where problems in the here and now find their start? People you knew, the life you lived, friends and family and lovers and the successes and failures that used to be… Now, they’re shaping who you’ve become. At least until you decide to make a change. And THEN you realize how much of that old business you need to go back and deal with—how many loose ends you must tie up—before you can genuinely thrive in you’re here and now.




HiMH Final

Here in My Heart has all that yummy goodness going for it, and more ;o)


It’s a charming, fun second-chance-at-love story for Dru Hampton and Brad Douglas. It’s a coming home story. It’s an amazing community-set story… We even have a match-making, mischievous grandma causing mayhem, while rumors fly and our lovers spar and try to resist how much they’ll have to risk, to have the life they deserve together. And of course, because it’s an Anna DeStefano story, there are some poignant, heart-felt moments guaranteed to make you misty, on the way to your next smile.


And at its heart, this romance shows us more of the Dixon foster family that we met in Love on Mimosa Lane. The way these amazing parents and kids love—how the grown foster children begin to help with their younger siblings—is inspirational. I’m very lucky to have the chance to explore Dru and Brad’s epic love story, and the way the entire community of Chandlerville pulls together for them as well as the Dixon family. Writing THAT kind of “happily ever after” is why I wake up every morning, feeling so very lucky that this is my job.


What’s your favorite memory from your youth? Did you have a great love that got away? Are you with your childhood sweetheart still? Do you still live close to your first home, or do you wish you could return and reunite with the friends and family you’ve left behind? And what’s your dream for the future. Would you give anything to make a reality—even if it meant going back and fixing the one “undone” thing in your past that is holding you back? I’m dying to know. And I hope you enjoy reading about Dru and Brad’s answers to all of the above ;0)
