Hello My Name Is ~ Giveaway Hop

We’re ringing in the New Year with lots of giveaways! And by sharing some fun and wacky facts about ourselves. There’s a new giveaway at each stop so be sure to visit them all!

Some of my quirky facts~

1) I love to listen to music when I write. But it has to be songs without words or halfway through the song, I’ve written the lyrics – usually in the middle of a paragraph.

2) I hate spiders!! My husband is the spider-killer! There was a spider in the shower when he was gone this summer. Even though I killed it with a half of a can of spray, I wouldn’t pick it up. So I took baths until he came home!

3) I always drive when we travel. I guess I just feel safer being the one in control. 

4) I’ve been owned by Dobermans for 34 years. Can’t imagine life without them.

5) I showed dogs for over twenty years and handled one of the top ten Bullmastiffs for a year ~ now that’s a BIG dog!

6) In my senior year of high school I was the lead in the musical Oklahoma. Three years later my dad moved to Oklahoma and I spent three years there ~ hum.

There will be TWO winners~
I’m giving away a signed copy of 
P.I. ~ I Love You

AND THE WINNERS ARE ~
Jeanne Massman ~ Love's Always Paws-Able
J. Lenni Dorner ~ P.I. ~ I Love You



 Rivers don’t let rocks hold them back.

River Nightingale has decided to blow past the rocky men in her life. She’s played by the rules for too long—especially when it came to her career as a cop. She was the top closer of cases for years, but promotions in her small town cop shop went to her less productive male counterparts. River’s friends, three other women cops, are also ready to change careers. Together they leave behind their small towns, become their own bosses, and purchase a Seattle private detective agency.

Homicide Detective Gage Hamlin takes pride in his job; he closes cases and fosters justice. All that changed the day River Nightingale sauntered into his office. River has him questioning his pride, his cases, and his aversion to private detectives, especially beautiful private detectives.

River’s client thinks Gage got it wrong, and River is forced to prove Gage missed a murder. Will River and Gage find a way to play nice, or will River be forced to leave Gage behind?

Second chances at life, love, and a forever home don’t come every day.

Faith Daniels leaves a successful Silicon Valley career to follow her life’s dream: in Cedar Grove she builds a foster home for unwanted and abused dogs. She knows dogs have the ability to love even after being abandoned. Abandoned by her fiancé and friends, Faith wishes she could learn to love and trust again.

Tanner Keen leaves behind the stress of his multi-million dollar advertising firm to save his life. He needs peace and quiet. So when a friend asks him to help a small town animal shelter, the opportunity seems perfect.

But all is not peaceful at the shelter in Cedar Grove. Can Faith and Tanner discover the deceit in others and still find trust in each other?

Love’s always paws-able.

To enter to win ~ Yup, you guessed it! Tell me one of your quirky facts. And don’t forget to leave your email address.

  15. Over the last five years I've done work as an extra in movies and TV that film near me and there are rules that you are expected to follow, once of which is that you are not allowed to talk to the actors unless they speak to you first. And despite seeing other people break that rule, I never have. That's not to say that I've never spoken to an actor before. In fact, I spoke briefly to three: Matt Damon, John Goodman and Joe Anderson.
