Quilt Guild Page

Hi —

My new two-book series, If a Butterfly, is now available, and one of the characters is a quilter, so I thought you or some of your guild members might be interested in it. In the series, Stella Lambert, after being recently widowed, decides to move from Dallas to the Lancaster area of Pennsylvania because she and her husband visited there many times on vacation, and she remembers the area fondly.

She has a dilemma, though. Although she had a reputation as a good quilter in Dallas, no one knows anything about that in her new home. Starting over is hard, but she’s determined to succeed. Check out a quote from her at the very bottom of the page.

There are also a number of other characters in the books who are facing their own challenges (a teacher, a married couple on vacation, a woman who hears voices no one else hears, a scientist, a grad student, a radio deejay, an astronaut, and a butterfly). The butterfly intersects the paths of a few of those people during its annual migration, and their lives and the lives of the others become intertwined. Here’s an image of the two books.

They are available in both print and Kindle versions at the following web address.


I’ve been describing the story as something like Six Degrees of Separation from Kevin Bacon (if Kevin just happened to be a butterfly). If you like, you can also grab a free 51-page companion book to the series by signing up for my mailing list. You can get the companion book as either a PDF, or as a Kindle or Nook file (I recommend the PDF because it has lots of color pictures which won’t display in color on many of the Nooks or Kindles). Just sign up for my newsletter at the link below to download a copy of it. The companion book will give you some good information about the characters and the story, and my newsletter will give you a glimpse into the life of a working writer twice a month. You can unsubscribe from it at any time.

And please feel free to give a link to this web page or to the free companion book to anyone else you think might be interested in the series. The more the merrier.

And scroll to the bottom of the page to see the quote from Stella. The butterfly in that picture is soaring over Lancaster County, PA.
