Jana, thank you for your sweet note! It means so much, to hear how a reader enjoyed one of my books. If you enjoyed Sweet Lake, I promise you'll also enjoy The Comfort of Secrets. The book reveals more of the background surrounding the Sweet Lake Sirens--and throws in a few twists you may not see coming!

Congratulations on winning the Sweet Lake giveaway--and thank you for entering the new Comfort of Secrets contest!

Christine, I wrote my first novel at the grand old age of 19. After college, I owned a PR firm and worked as a freelance writer. I began writing fiction full-time in 2004. Tally it all up, and I've been writing for--yikes--34 years!
