The Glenbrooke series started with an invitation. A phone call from an editor I’d never met. Would I be interested in writing a romance novel for the Christian market?
I remember how the rain was making silver polka dots on the upstairs window of the 100 year old Victorian bungalow we called home. We’d only lived in Portland, Oregon a few weeks and our family of four was still getting used to the single bathroom with its original claw foot tub and the sound of squirrels scampering across the roof.
“Set the story in the Great Northwest,” she said. “Write about what you see out your window.”
“It’s just one book. Pure romance. The market is ready for stories like this.” She was convincing and I’m so glad she was. (Thank you SO much, @LisaBergren !)
I dove in to the new novel as a flurry of autumn leaves released their golden grip and fluttered to the earth. Secrets was the title fixed in my thoughts. Jessica met Kyle. She was shown kindness from strangers in a small, Oregon town with the made up name of Glenbrooke. Friendships formed, romance blossomed and Jessica’s secret came to light. The story grew.
Secrets became Book #1 in the award-winning, bestselling, 8-book Glenbrooke series. Each story welcomes readers with the same invitation –
A quiet place where souls are refreshed.
I’m delighted to let you know that the entire series of gentle love stories is now offered to you for 3 days only for the special price of $88 for all 8 books. That’s only $11 per book! I hope I can be as convincing as my editor was. Just one book, and you’ll want to read the entire series. The offer is available exclusively through Robin’s Nest Online Shop and ends at midnight EST on Sunday, January 29th.
