I am almost done writing the first draft of the second volume of The Bartonville Series. Then I’m going to turn my attention to the first volume in The Pine Lake Series. It will still be set in Michigan, as will all of my women’s/foodie fiction series, but I’m heading north with a whole new set of characters. The main characters will be a bit older than Emma and Daisy (from The Bartonville Series), but I promise they’ll have all kinds of juicy life issues to deal with. And, of course, there will be lots of food and recipes. Pine Lake is fictional, but I spent the weekend in the area where it would be if it was real. Isn’t it pretty?

    1. I think I’ll have to incorporate some hiking trips or at least picnics in the woods into this series!

  1. Cold, crisp air and snowy surroundings are only missing two things for the perfect setting: a cabin with smoke drifting out of the chimney and the smell of hearty food as you open the cabin door. I haven’t read your books, but if you combine women’s life details and food descriptions, I can’t wait to check one out.

    1. This area is full of cabins. Everything from hunting shacks to grand log cabins. There are lots of hills with beautiful forests and lakes. Definitely a sportsman’s paradise! Of course, you can also just curl up with a good book and watch the wildlife outside. 🙂

    1. That’s a great idea! I won’t be able to find this exact spot, I think, since it is in the middle of nowhere. 🙂 I can still take more pictures in the general area, though. 🙂

  2. Beautiful….but it makes me cold (remember, I am in Florida and it’s been many a year since I lived in Pennsylvania and Michigan!) But I am very much looking forward to the next book in the Bartonville series.

    1. It wasn’t too cold on the day these pictures were taken, but I would imagine it would still seem very cold to you! We had rain and thunderstorms a few days ago, but back into the cold wind again today.
