Scripture: Romans 8:38-39: For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Welcome back, family and friends.
It's September already--crazy, huh? Last week, my daughter turned 29-years-old. This week, we're celebrating my mother's 84th birthday. Special moments. I hope you all created great summer memories.
During August, I had two highlights on the same weekend, two cities apart.
First, I felt like Hollywood I had arrived in K.C., as I was honored to be among invited authors for Mid-Continent Library's inaugural Romance Genre Con. Those librarians know how to put on a shindig from the panels to a hat party to the book signing. It was a fabulous affair. Kansas City ROCKED, I'll even cheer for the Royals. :) Nah, Go Cards!
On Saturday, three hours down I-70 in St. Louis, my husband was enjoying our annual family reunion. This year's theme was "Back to Our Roots (Africa)." Cousins seemed to takeover FaceBook, posting pictures of family members dressed in their African garb. The photos were so engaging, it was breath-taking. I felt like I was in two places at the same time. The night was marvelous! Check out my article "Reunions Forever" and see the outfit I sewed for my husband.
In other exciting crazy news, I'm planning to attend my grade school reunion this weekend! Not my high school or college, but grade school! I'm sure there will be some "wow" moments. Can you pick me out from this the lineup?
Your support has kept me in the game as a published author for so many years. Some of you have purchased more than one copy or downloads of my books. Others have joined wait lists for my new releases. Your continued support is appreciated! Look what is current on book shelf.
Coming Soon!!! The 9th Installment in The Jamieson Legacy, The Guilty Generation. Are you ready? Since Guilty of Love was published in 2007, the Jamiesons seem to write their own stories. Special shout out to my freelance developmental editor, Chandra Sparks Splond, and beta reader, Stacey Jefferson, for helping me shape this story. The stage is set for the guilty parties and Kami Jamieson is in the spotlight... or hot seat. With many generations gathered in one place for fun and games, there are bound to be some surprises. Before the night is over, the elders will become the students, eager to learn about the challenges the thirteenth generation descendants of a royal African tribe face. It’s going to take more than a board game or family lore to survive temptations that can only be overcome through fasting and praying. You won't want to miss this story, so join theWAIT LIST.
It doesn’t matter how many years go by, love will always find a way….
On the surface, Brecee Carmen has nothing in common with Adrian Cole. She is a pediatrician certified in trauma care; he is a transportation problem-solver for a luxury car dealership (a.k.a., a car salesman). Despite their slow but steady attraction to each other, neither one of them is sure that they're compatible. To complicate matters, Brecee is the sole unattached Carmen daughter when it seems as though everyone else around her—family and friends—is finding love.
Through a series of discoveries, Adrian and Brecee learn that things don't always happen by coincidence. Generational forces are at work, keeping promises, protecting family members, and perhaps even drawing Adrian back to the church he had strayed from. Is it possible that God has been playing matchmaker all along?
