Happy Thanksgiving 2016!!

Happy Thanksgiving 2016!!

It's been a very busy year for me this year, but I wanted to wish my friends, family, and readers a very Happy Thanksgiving!  I'm thankful for turkey, pies, football and sharing quality time with my family. Here's an update on my year: 

I continue to be busy. I'm now teaching 5th grade religious education for my church. I'm using a facilitated style which the kids enjoy. I recently became Cubmaster of Pack 40. It was very unexpected and I'm looking forward to leading the scouts in a great year of scouting. While I was able to start 2 stories, I haven't had the time to finish them and I hope to do so next year. I bowl with the boys in the parent/child league. 

Wishing you all a happy holiday season! I know the holidays will be busy but take a minute or two for yourself and relax. Here's a snippet from my steampunk romance, A Princess is Always Right, released in SEP 2015.

BLURB: Sophia's torn between her duty to England and her heart when she's tasked to travel through time to stop Jonas from mucking with history.


She wrinkled her brow. What did she want? To go home and train horses and pray the press leave her alone? To support charities? Sure, the task was noble, but not...fulfilling. Would she be dispatched through Great Britain as a goodwill ambassador? Did she want to seek higher schooling like Richard had? Was there a balance to be found between her personal life and her royal obligations? Richard and Alice seemed to find that balance, but Sophia felt almost rudderless in this moment. Did she want to remain a princess or enjoy the anonymity that Edmund possessed? 
She ran a hand over her hair. She'd never felt so directionless before. Why was that? Because she wanted Jax in her life? They had discussed visiting each other using the time machine before Augustus' uncle passed away, but Sophia believed travel wouldn't be approved just for dating. 
"You're a Windsor. Duty first. Love second. That's what I did and the nation benefited because of it." Liz's voice filled with pride. 
"I had no idea it was such a thought provoking question." He kept his voice light in an effort to put her at ease.




Barnes & Noble:

5 Stars, Liz Gavin, Amazon Reviewer:As usual, Stephanie Buckhart delivered a great book. ‘A Princess is always right’ is a very well-written story with likeable characters and lots of adventure. I recommend it for fans of fantasy and/or good books.
