Treats for those Holiday Parties and Events

December is a month of special events including Christmas and New Year with family gatherings and parties. This year was different for my husband and me since we had moved in August to Sedona, Arizona from Michigan.  But  that didn’t stop the parties. We were more active here than in Michigan, and partly because I […]

We All Started Somewhere… from Gail Gaymer Martin

When did you know you had writing talent…or any talent for that matter? Sometimes, I think, our talents are qualities that we think are normal and we take them for granted. When I was in the third grade my teacher wrote on my report card, “Gail has writing talent.” She based this on poetry I […]

Bring the Old Back To Life

I can still remember the excitement of seeing my first novel in print. Most authors take their photo with the box of books or holding it or even kissing the cover. We’re all different, but one way we are the same, that first book is like a baby’s first steps. We crawl, we stand, we […]

Two Sweet Romances Live Again – Gail Gaymer Martin

Years ago when I first started writing, my excitement was bigger than my senses. The Love Inspired line (with three books a month) couldn’t keep me busy, and so I asked for ideas on what other lines I might write. At that time, Silhouette Romance was a popular line, sweet but without faith content. Excited about […]

The Value Of Thank You

Thank you can come in many forms from words, to attitude, to assistance, to flowers.
