New Beginnings by Margaret Daley

New Beginnings by Margaret Daley

I'm putting out a romance series about new beginnings in a person's life. We have many new beginnings in our lives like learning to walk (changing our life when we do) to first day at school to falling in love to having a child, a new job and retiring. New beginnings are exciting, frightening, challenging and life changing. One person's new beginnings aren't necessarily the same as another.

When I retired from teaching, there were people and students I left behind that I missed. I need something to do so I wasn't sure how retirement would work out for me. That's when my writing became a full-time job. The new beginning gave me a new direction to go. Before, I wrote books when I could during the school year (often after a long day teaching) and during the summer months. Now I have more time to focus on my writing but also my family and friends.

So what is your last "new beginning?"

First book in my New Beginnings series:
Love’s Healing Power
By Margaret Daley
Tess Morgan loves being a pediatric nurse and helping the children under her care. She’d always wanted a large family, but that dream was shattered when her fiancé was murdered while volunteering in South America.

Peter “Mac” MacPherson, a former football superstar, had dealt with his own tragedies—the deaths of his father followed by his wife while she was giving birth to their daughter. His faith sustained him through his grief, but can he help Tess believe again in God and finally find a family—with him? 
Pre-order (March 12th release day): Amazon (this book will be in Kindle Unlimited)


  1. Margaret, new beginnings is a wonderful theme for a series. I'm excited to read these! My biggest new beginning was becoming a widow, selling our house, and moving into a studio apartment.

  2. Margaret,
    Mine was when my husband and I made the decision to move to South Carolina from upstate NY because of a relocation package for his job. Lots of changes for our children, and we missed our family and friends, so the adjustment took time.

    Best wishes on your new series. Sounds great!

    1. Definitely moving to another state is a new beginning. I remember when I had to move to Mississippi from Kentucky as a teenager after my father died.

  3. My last new beginning was becoming a young widow (according to the widows that come to church which are all a lot older than I am) 7 years ago next month. He was laid to rest on my birthday. He was my soulmate. I have suffered several serious health issues that became worse while taking care of my husband and working to keep us afloat the last 6 years of his life and not being able to take care of myself. A year later I had to start helping my son raise his 1 1/2 year old son when he moved back home. My grandson was the light of my life and I felt God did this as my purpose to keep going. It has been an emotional rollercoaster. My health has deteriorated more but I still help with my grandson. He passed kindergarten with A/B Honor Roll all year. Now working on passing first grade.

  4. Mary, praying that your health gets better.
