Hello world!

Hello!  And thanks for coming by to visit my first blog.   I’m pretty new at this, but I intend to send out messages to the interested from time to time.

I’ll comment on life when I have a profound thought, and I will also pass along for the benefit of other authors some of the grammatical wisdom I learned at the knee of Miss Bertha Casey, English teacher extraordinaire and legend in her own time.  You know—like the mysteries of the past tense of ‘to lie’ or ‘to lay’.  ‘To get laid’, I fear, was out of the expertise of Miss Casey.

So drop in now and then, or better yet, subscribe.  Thanks again.




  1. I enjoyed your web site and your blog.

  2. I enjoyed your new book “An Impetuous Abduction” so much that I had to find about the author.
    I was pleasantly surprised to find that you lived in Castor La. I was borned up the road in Claiborne Parish,
    about 8 miles down the road from Homer. Since my husband retired from his electrical contracting business, we
    have been in Atlanta, Ga. I am a member of the Harlequin Reader’s Club and think I also have read some of your other books. I love the country in N. La. and am glad you are making your home there. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
    A Happy Reader,

  7. Dear Mrs. Rowell,

    I just want to say how much I enjoy your books. I don’t keep all the books I read but yours are “keepers”. Please keep up the great work, it’s very hard to find good authors now for some unknown reason. I read very fast which is a curse, I do re-read my very best books and I include yours among them. It’s like visiting with an old friend, you know what they are like and you always enjoy the company.

    I am so glad you came out with a new book, I am not a writer so I can’t image how much work it is to write. I do know it is a lot of work, but I also know that I can’t do it, I’m so glad you can. I will be looking forward to your next and the one after that.

    I also want to say that I’m a bit of a history buff and you have never made some of the silly mistakes that some authors have made, example; Vikings eating potato soup, a lady in the middle ages drinking hot chocolate, garbage cans in the 18th century and so on. Sometimes I feel like writing them and offer my services to proof read their books to keep them making mistakes like that. lol

    Thank you so much. I hope you and yours have a wonderful year ahead of you.

    Take care,
