Today I'm proud to introduce fellow Carina Press author Dee J Adams. Dee J Adams writes high speed romance. After dabbling in Hollywood is it any wonder she writes about kick-ass heroines and hunky guys? Dee is a distant neighbor. She's in southern California while I'm smack in the middle, but we share a love of fall color and both know what it's like to prepare for Thanksgiving in short sleeves and flip flops.
Without further nonsense from me, here's Dee!
I don’t know about any of you, but for me, the weather plays a large part of Thanksgiving. Living in Southern California, it’s sometimes hard to believe it really is Thanksgiving when it’s eighty-five degrees outside. I’m lucky that I have three giant trees in the my front yard that shed thousands of beautiful red, yellow and orange leaves so even if the sun is out and it’s blazing hot, I can count on my trees to tell me the season.
But on to Thanksgiving… I am a very fortunate gal and take this time of year to really reflect on the fact that I have a loving husband, a beautiful daughter and two happy dogs. I used to think that money would make me happy – and don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t mind not having to worry about the monetary part of life – but as I’ve gotten older, I realize it’s the relationships in life that count the most. It’s about the people you love and having that love returned.
I remember one Thanksgiving many years ago when my husband cooked a turkey for fifteen or twenty people. (I’ll admit, I’m not much of a cook) It may not sound like a big thing, except that my husband is a vegetarian. I’ll never forget that turkey and the fact that my husband worked so hard to make it perfect for our friends even though he wouldn’t have a bite of it. Now that’s love.
This year I’m grateful for so much more… grateful for the fact that after so many years of writing, I finally have a published novel, Dangerous Race (and Danger Zone coming out in another couple of months). This will be my first Thanksgiving with a book out and you can bet I’ll be the first at the table to count my blessings.
Dangerous Race - Life in the fast lane can be deadly
