Hello, Tule Readers! I’m so excited to be here with you to share a little bit about myself and my new release, In With the Tide. As a New England native, I spent a lot of summers on Cape Cod with my family. There’s something so peaceful about the cozy cottages with weathered cedar shingles, and golden sea grass that clusters on the rolling sand dunes. Treasures can be found in the quaint shops on Main Street in Chatham, and if you’re patient they often wash in with the tide in the form of shells and sea glass. Treasure is also found in the form of new beginnings for Lindsey Hunter and Damien Trent.

Happy-Ever-After Versus a Whodunit? C.J. Carmichael loves BOTH!

Write what you love is counsel often given to aspiring novelists. I took that advice when I focused on romance at the start of my writing career. My first novel—which I called “Love Letters From Grace” and which Harlequin Superromance titled “Jessie’s Father”—was published in 1999. After that, I wrote an average of three to four books a year and before I knew it I had thirty-five romances to my name. While proud of each of my books, I began to feel creatively drained.

So I revisited the adage to write what you love. Did I still love romance now as much as I did ten, twenty, or even thirty years ago? Truthfully, no. When I was looking to escape into a page-turning read, I was more inclined to buy a good character-driven mystery. Should I try to write one of those?

Join Leigh Ann Edwards on a European Vacation!

I am really pleased to be featured on Tule’s blog today. I’m also very excited for the release of“A Witch’s Life”, book five in The Irish Witch Series. I’ve heard readers are impatiently awaiting what is in store for Alainn and Killian since the cliff-hangar ending of book four shocked even those who have followed the books since the beginning. I’m thrilled there are so many invested in my characters and their powerful love story, and while I promise there will be answers soon, in keeping with the series, there are likely to be more mysteries arise as well.

My husband and I have recently returned from a trip to the UK and Ireland. He is originally from a small city near Manchester England and still has family there. Since he hadn’t celebrated Christmas with them for eleven years, I am happy we were able to be there in December.
