1. I married the love of my life in the early fall. As a matter of fact we just celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary.
2. I do so love all of the wonderful fall foliage we get to admire here in the northeastern part of the United States.
4. I find that my muse returns from it's own summer vacation gracing me with newfound story ideas and quirky characters. Right now I'm working on a brand new book, the second in my Pinkerton, historical romance series. I'm bringing the characters of Agent Lily Handland and Adirondack Great Camp owner Owen Murphy to life. My fingers are tingling in excitement! I really do love writing during the fall months.
5. And did I mention it's apple season!!!! And pumpkin picking time!!!! Which means visits to our favorite farm stand to buy those freshly picked from the tree apples. Macs are the ones I go for. Another fall confession I only buy my apples from my childhood farm stand, which is now a two hour drive from where I live. But so worth the effort and I get to enjoy those fall colors while I'm driving!
So tell me what are some of the favorite things you love about fall? One of my lucky commenters will be chosen to win a giveaway of one book from my best selling Women of Surprise series.

September is here!
Time for school and sweat jackets.
Time for pumpkins and mums.
Time for jumping in a leaf pile and a warm bowl of soup.
Time for cozy fires and hot cocoa.
Time for football!
In my second book, One Good Catch, Kate falls for a football player named Rhys. He's one of my favorite characters.
I like stories where the main characters are friends before they realize they have feelings for each other.
Being friends is so important in relationships. It can't all be about instant attraction and mushy kissing!
Well, the mushy kissing is fun, too.
Do you like 'Friends to Lovers' stories? How do you feel about Fall? Or football?

At the same time, I love to travel and see new places. I am frequently searching the Internet for deals on last minute getaways, my favorite being beach destinations. I am happiest with my feet buried in soft sand and the sound of waves crashing filling my head. Last month, I discussed my treasured Beach Thursdays and the once-a-week mini vacation they provide.
Last year we took a big trip to Disney World, which meant there would be no big, extended vacation this summer. However, there is no way that the wanderlust inside me will sit still for an entire summer, so quick getaways were the answer.
And We're Off!
Our first getaway was to Cleveland, OH over Memorial Day weekend. We'd never been there and living in upstate, it was a short distance away that we could drive for a weekend. We visited the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, toured the house from A Christmas Story (my husband's all-time favorite movie), went to the Cleveland Zoo and found some of the most amazing eateries a city could offer. Thanks to Groupon (which I swear by) the trip was very inexpensive and a lot of fun.
Our next journey was to Saco, in southern Maine for the weekend before the Fourth of July. My husband has family there, so we were able to stay with them. A very relaxing weekend included trips to Old Orchard Beach, 360-degree fireworks on a jetty on the Maine coast, and outlet shopping in Kittery.
Still to Come...
My final getaway of the summer is yet to come, next week actually. My daughter and I along with my very good friend, will be taking a trip to Atlantic City where we are staying at a beautiful hotel on the boardwalk and plan to enjoy the beach, great food and outlet shopping. My daughter and I went a few years back and this year she proposed the girls' getaway. Definitely looking forward to relaxing before getting back into the chaos of school, sports, clubs and this year...college applications.
How did you spend your summer?
