Johnny O's in Logan, Utah has the BEST spudnuts ever! Sitting down with their sweets and a good book on a Saturday afternoon is heaven. Thanks Kevin, Pam, Matt and all employees for your warm welcome during my book signing of TOKEN WOMAN.
Such joy meeting up with long-ago neighbors, Kent (a published author in his own right)and Roma Henderson. Loved sharing hugs with classmate Gayla, and selling to my youngest buyer yet who has a dream of becoming an illustrator, little Miss Hoth.

Dandelions are in Blossom

Wow, on my way home from my first book signing with Token Woman I couldn't believe ALL of the dandelions in the lawn by my Smith's. I guess spring is here, so now I can paint my toenails and bring out the sandals.
Look who stopped by the book signing; high school classmate, author extraordinaire in his own right, George Sumner. What a delight to visit and catch up with each other.
Who would have guessed an extraordinary happening could take place while meeting with friends, neighbors, and strangers . . . A lovely gal stopped by to chat and she began telling me how her new mother-in-law from St. George, Utah (her mom passed about six years ago) told her of meeting a local author having her very first book signing at a Smith's while she was visiting the Salt Lake area last fall. I could hardly wait to ask her if her new mother-in-law's name was Susan. Susan was my very first sale with Satin Murder that day, therefore I will never forget her. IT WAS! Now here stood Christina at my very first book signing, again at Smith's, with my second novel. Now what are the chances???  A little 'twinkle', as my cousin Sandee would say.
My thanks to all who gifted me a most successful signing.

My second novel, Token Woman, has been launched; now comes the fun part, meeting up with each of you. My thanks to so many of you for the success of my first novel, Satin Murder.
I hope you will find the time to share this upcoming book signing with me at Smith's on 3470 East 7800 South, Salt Lake City, UT. Saturday, March 14, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. until noon and then again from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. I look forward to visiting with you.
Please check out my blog and facebook (see below) for updates on other signings throughout the state in the coming weeks.
My book can be ordered at:
The King's English Books
Token Woman is the story of an unlikely intersection of life between two disparate lifestyles, an unhappily married mother and three young gay men. This is the backdrop for a developing relationship that provides enlightened direction for each in their search for meaning and self-identity.

I answered my door to find dear friend, Aimee, with this beautifully created wreath; my favorite Lily of the Valleys, and fancy T. Oh, me and my door says "thank you", "thank you" for such warmth to greet all who stop by to visit.

It might be snowing, but my excitement of launching my second novel, Token Woman, on the very birth date of my second son, Trav, is sending me over the moon.

Information about TOKEN WOMAN, and me as the author, can be found on Amazon.com. I hope you will take a minute and read all about it. I will update this blog and my travels with TOKEN WOMAN every Sunday evening.
