It was great to sit down with fellow co-authors, Carol Malone, Debby Lee and Sarah Daley on Thursday to discuss our new compilation: Summer Hearts: 6 Summer Tales of Sweet Romance. We had a round-robin chat to get to know more about our writing journeys, what sparked our interest in doing this project, and our novellas in Summer Hearts. For Sarah Daley, it was especially fun because this marks her debut as a published author! Authors, Kathy Bosman, and Robyn Echols weren’t able to join us for the interview, but they’ll be with us for the Summer Hearts Blog Tour, June 6-12th!
