SEEDLINGS INTO SUNFLOWERS…- Christina Hollis


Where does the time go? It feels like only a few weeks ago that I brought my first little bundle of joy home from hospital. Wow - look at her now! I spent yesterday morning watching her perform as Teresa in The Memory of Water for a drama exam. And how can my son manage to ride his bike like that? He’s so small! Well, no, he isn’t actually – not any more. It won’t be long before I’m the shortest person in this entire family. Everyone teases me that things are going to change around here when it happens. I reply darkly that Napoleon never let a lack of height hold him back. So if they want feeding, they’d better keep on being present and correct at mealtimes! Time flies when it comes to work, too. The ghost of an idea flutters into my mind, and I can’t wait to get started on a story. That’s when the hard work begins, but it’s so rewarding. It hardly seems possible that my next book, Count Giovanni’s Virgin, will be on sale within a few weeks. I’m so pleased with the cover. It reflects everything I love about romance: a gorgeous guy, fresh out of the pool and drenched in sunlight. Now all I need is a cup of tea and a big slice of chocolate cake to make all my fantasies come true…

Oh, my baby never grows up, no matter how much of an old lady she is. . . but hey, she's my Kitty. :) Nice and fuzzy and warm and all. LOL

Did anyone say chocolate? Yum! I know what you mean about babies. It is hard to believe my firstborn is going to be 4 years old in another month. I feel like it was just last week I brought him home. It is hard to believe how fast they grow up.

I am was looking at your cover again. Wow, is that guy good looking or what? I would buy the book just for the cover alone!

Aww....I love babies! You have to savor every moment you can while they are small. Babies are so cute and adorable. I love all the baby sounds, changing the diapers, baby toys, little itty bitty baby clothes, bascially anything to do with babies! Oh and I love to give baby presents! I get really creative when it comes to decorating the present! Love it!
