This Sunday is a big deal for me. My good friend CJ Carmichael’s novel, A Bramble House Christmas, will be a Hallmark movie on Sunday night and I am so very proud of her, and thrilled that this story has found a home on the Hallmark movie channel! CJ has been one of my closest friends for over 20 years (we met before we were ever published!) and CJ was one of the founding authors of Tule, along with Megan Crane and Lilian Darcy. It was at CJ’s cottage at Flathead Lake that we planned our Montana Born stories, and mapped out charming little Marietta where CJ’s Bramble House can be found. This summer I was able to was able … Continue reading Bramble House Christmas Movie Night!
I’m so excited to be back in colorful South Africa with husband Ty. Combining some business and fun, we’ve been having a great time exploring beautiful places like the Cape Peninsula, walking with elephants at the Kariega Game Reserve, taking a road trip on the N2 to Mossel Bay and indulging in the local cuisine at The Africa Cafe. And there’s still so much to do, so much to see! I’m also speaking at ROSA’s Annual National Conference in Melrose, Johannesburg this weekend and so looking forward to the gala dinner on Saturday night. If you’re from Johannesburg, check my events page for details – I’d love to see you there! I must sign off as Ty’s waiting for me … Continue reading Fun in South Africa
Four years ago today Ty and I married in Las Vegas. We wanted a celebration, and we wanted it to be fun. I hadn’t planned on ever marrying again and I’m a deeply spiritual person but being married by Elvis in a tacky little chapel seemed right. Why? Because it was Ty and me, combined, doing this–love, life, marriage–our way. We’d done everything backward to that point and so making our wedding uniquely us, felt right. It felt hopeful and fresh, making our commitment, new and strong. In just minutes we’re taking off for the Dana Point Harbor to take a boat to Catalina for the night. It’s a quickie escape as we’ll be back by noon tomorrow, but … Continue reading Celebrating Life & Love
I’ve been doing lots of interviews this summer in conjunction with the release if It’s You, and my attendance at various writers conferences and book festivals and thought I’d share some of the questions (and answers!) from the interviews. You might already know this stuff but a few of you might be new readers and find it interesting! You’ve just had your 50th book published in June. What has changed in the 15 years since you sold your first book? Besides the massive transformation of the publishing industry? I’ve changed. I’m a very different woman now than when I sold that first book back in 2000. I’m stronger, more confident, and more resilient, too. I’m also less interested in being … Continue reading September Q&A with Jane
