Janet Dailey. You’ll be greatly missed.


Readers everywhere were saddened to learn of the recent passing of romance icon JANET DAILEY. She published her first book in 1976 and is the author of approximately 100 books with sales totalling over 325 million copies across 89 counties and translated in 19 languages. I was not only a fan of her books, particularly the Calder Series, I also had the privilege of meeting her on several occasions but one in particular was memorable. Here’s the article I wrote at the time and it’s about her first boss attending a booksigning!

Fall Books

MARY BURTON continues her Texas Ranger Trilogy with her latest thriller, NO ESCAPE. The novel follows heroine Dr. Jolene Granger and Texas Ranger Brody Winchester and the tension between these two characters sizzles. But the villian, claims Mary, is “the most chilling I’ve ever written.”

Writing as MARY ELLEN TAYLOR, Mary has a new trade paperback out called SWEET EXPECTATIONS, the sequel to THE UNION STREET BAKERY. You’ll get a peek behind the scenes at the Union Street Bakery and into the lives of the McCrae sisters, Daisy, Rachel and Margaret. There’s another mystery to unravel and a persistent ghost as Daisy finds a way to make the bakery her forever home. Mary has added some delicious recipes on her website, too, just in time for holiday baking. And you’ll want to bake after reading this “delicious” new novel!

This conference kicked off with approximately 400 authors including Heather Graham, Cathy Maxwell, Carla Neggers and Mary Burton autographing books in an event open to the public.  All proceeds went to literacy and approximately $55,000 was raised.
