Heath Ledger-In Memory

Prayers go out to Heath Ledger's family. I feel in love with him in 'The Patriot' and loved every movie he has made. He was a great actor and will be sorely missed.

A book with a cause!

I wanted to put this on my blog since this is such a great cause~!

On the Run
by Judith Rochelle
PRINT ISBN 1-60154-214-3
(240 pages) Sensual

When Robin Fleming witnessed the murder of her sister, Jamie, her only thought is to grab her nephew and run, from her vicious brother-in-law. Running and hiding, covering their tracks, they eventually settle in Memphis to begin a new life. Robin, now Laura, though still grieving for her sister, is determined to make a good life for her nephew. Then illness hits Andy, and while Laura is dealing with that crisis, bad luck and unfortunate circumstances bring all the players together again and endanger everyone’s lives. Can Dr. Gage Hollander, who has fallen in love with Laura, find a way to save them?

Available now from The Wild Rose Press....ALL Proceeds going to ST. JUDE'S CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL

From Rhonda Penders, Editor-in-Chief, The Wild Rose Press:

Judith Rochelle, is one of our multipublished authors at The Wild Rose Press. In late summer, 2007 I approached her with an idea of a project that would enable RJ and me to give something back for all the wonderful things that had happened to us since we opened in May 2006. I wanted to find an organization that I felt everyone, everywhere would care about and really embrace. While many qualified, the one that kept coming back to my mind was St. Jude's Children's Hospital.

A few days later, Judith created a synopsis and a proposal for a book incorporating romance, suspense and St. Jude's. It took my breath away at what she'd come up with. Judith wrote the book, RJ and I edited it, and Kim Mendoza did the beautiful cover. None of us, including the publishing company, will receive any compensation; every penny will go to St. Jude's. Children's Hospital.

The result of this, is the amazing Crimson Rose book called "On the Run" by Judith Rochelle.
The book will be offered in both print and electronic format. The amount raised will be announced on our web site twice a year. The first report to be posted at the end of June 2008.

If you've purchased this book, thank you for your contribution to St. Jude's, if you haven't purchased it yet, I strongly encourage you to do so. The download is $5.00 and will go into a special fund to be donated to St. Jude's twice a year.

I've been very very blessed to have not only three very healthy sons, but cousins and nephews and nieces and children in my life who have been healthy and happy and strong. Sometimes we all have to take a reality check and realize that there are families out there truly suffering due to their children's long term illnesses. Maybe some of these children are in your family and circle of friends. St. Jude's is an amazing hospital in Memphis, TN that supports and helps families and children of long term illnesses.

If you would like more information on this project, you may contact Rhonda Penders at rpenders@thewildros To learn more about the author, please visit To see the amazing work St. Jude's does, please visit their web site at

Thank you for your support of this important project.

What I'm reading this weekend..

I wanted a quick read this weekend so I bought myself a Harlequin Blaze.
I don't think I have read this author before so Julie Miller is new to me. The book is 'At Your Command' It has a 5 star review on amazon, but I did not read them since it tends to spoil the book. Oh and the male cover model is pretty hott! What is up with the heroine though, she looks like she is in I will write my review on Monday or early next week.
On another note, I wrote a first chapter for a Valentine's contest sponsored by the wonderful Diva writer's forum. I just sent off a file with my first sex scene! I am so nervous since it was my first time to write one but I needed to get over the fear. I'm holding my breath...gasp. Okay I am out of shape so I won't do that but I am looking forward to see what others think.

My new blog...

So here I am with my new blog! Being a baby writer I will need to do a lot of research into writing romance novels. It is a genre I love dearly since I picked up my first Harlequin romance novel at thirteen.
I find it extremely exciting to act as matchmaker to all the crazy character's in my head. I am hoping to do them justice by learning and honing my craft. I will use this blog to chronicle my adventure's as I set out to be a published author!
