Spring seems to have come early this year in many parts of the country with eighty degree heat in the Midwest and sunshine on the coasts. Time to break out the flip-flops and shorts, or will Old Man Winter come roaring back and freeze up all the ponds and creeks?
Spring means baseball, cleaning, and planting time. Up in wine country, the vintners await bud-breaking, where the first shoots grow from the vine. Anglers take out their tackle and gear and eagerly drop their hooks to catch fish who have grown big over the winter. And of course, down on the farm, the creatures get busy with foaling, calving, and hatching.
What do you like about spring? For me, it's spring sports, baseball, and my son's tennis season starting up again. We got a deluge of rain here in Northern California [a real blessing after six years of drought]. It's jogging near a swollen creek and smelling the cut green grass. Spring break and Easter vacation with the family, and strangely enough, planning to write Christmas books for the end of the year. I love spring flowers and walking around the lake where the birds are singing their blessed little hearts out and hummingbirds hover and flit.
Last spring, I visited Golden Gate Park and got an idea for a story, one that starts with a little stray kitten who climbs a tree too high, causing his owner to get rescued by the hunkiest fireman in town, Fire Chief Connor Hart.
Please share your spring experiences and take a look at my completely sweet and clean fireman romance, Spring Fling Kitty where a stray kitty brings firefighter Connor Hart and his fiancee's half-sister, Nadine Woo into a tug of war between love and loyalty.
Fire Chief Connor Hart is planning on marrying a doctor when he rescues her half-sister and her kitten from a tall tree.
Artist and poet Nadine Woo is down on her luck until she gets an interesting offer from her sister.
