Happy Mother's Day!!

Tomorrow's Mother's Day...are you ready?
I am a mother and I am the mother of three daughters (and one son!!). And I'll confess, I love writing mother-daughter relationships in books (I love writing sons too...I don't want him to feel bad). I love exploring their relationships and how the relationship impacts a heroine's romantic relationship.

One of the most Odd Couple combo's I've written was in Confessions of a Party Crasher. The mother and daughter loved each other, but frequently didn't understand each other. Annabelle is larger than life and lives her life out loud. My heroine, Morgan wants nothing more than a 'normal' life. She's got plans and goals. They love each other, but look at life from different perspectives.

As Morgan comes home, her mother offers her some good advice...
I loved writing this mother-daughter pair. They've always loved each other, but they begin to develop a better understanding of each other.

I sometimes feel like my daughters' Annabelle, but thankfully they still hang out with me on purpose! We just got back from a weekend in NYC a bit back. We saw Hamilton and my pick this year for the Tony's...Dear Evan Hansen. Have you seen it??
Yes, you're welcome! Ben Platt was amazing! The entire cast was! Speaking of amazing, that whole weekend was just that. There's something so amazing when you're sitting at brunch with your daughters and realize you've raised your own best friends! Okay, back to Mother's Day...when you're done shopping for your mom (or if you're the mom in question), maybe you deserve a treat for yourself?? Check out Confessions of a Party Crasher!
"...a funny tale of falling in love when you least expect it, best friends, and off-beat mothers..." WWR

Happy Mother's Day to all your Moms and to your Moms! Holly
