When I came to write my latest release To Marry A Matchmaker, at first my heroine gave me problems. I just could not get her right. Something was missing. Then I happened to see an email that perhaps I shouldn’t have done but someone mentioned me being a bit of a busybody and I knew that I had my heroine. That was what she was a bit of busybody but with a lot of heart. The phrase about good intentions and a phrase off a mug that we bought my daughter – I’m not bossy, I just have better ideas seemed encapsulate my heroine Henri. Henri ended up being very close to my heart – someone who sees a problem and takes action rather than sitting back. She is someone who is one of life’s givers rather than takers. Some people might see her as a meddling busybody but she does what she does from the heart and ultimately she does make life a better and richer place. In her case, she firmly believes in love and romance (as long as it is for other people). However, a local landowner sees her passion for matchmaking as interference and bets her that she can’t stop for a month. Henri believes she is more than equal to the challenge. After all, she can stop any time she wants...or can she?
Does anyone else have trouble with good intentions gone wrong? Please don't let me be the only one!

If anyone is going or going to the literacy signing, I hope to see you there. I have the intention of having an edible treat for anyone who stops by at the literacy signing to say hello.
