Let Freedom Ring! By Terri Weldon

Happy 243rd birthday to the United States of America! Needless to say, we love the 4th of July in America and we spend our day celebrating our freedom with family and friends. Some people cookout and invite the entire family over while others go to parades or parks and watch fireworks light up the nighttime sky. There are as many ways to celebrate our freedom as there are Americans.

Kind of reminds me of writing. There are as many ways to tell a story as there are authors. If I told you to write a short story that had a man, a woman, a broken down car, and a farm house I’d get a different story from each of you. Undoubtedly there would be a romance where the man’s car broke down right in front of the widow’s farmhouse and he stays on to help her out while saving money to have his car fixed. If I were writing the story the woman would be on the run from a stalker. Her car breaks down and he murders her in the farm house. A very famous duo in the speculative market wrote a great book about a house and believe me – I could have never imagined that story.

Exercise your creative freedom by telling me what story you would write. Then go out and celebrate Independence Day!

A Match Made in Sheffield
 by Terri Weldon

Natalie Benton bounced from one foster home to another until she landed on Ellie Alexander’s doorstep. Natalie’s vagabond childhood caused her to yearn for a secure life, which led to Natalie’s five-year plan: complete her law degree, marry the perfect man, become a partner at Montgomery, Haynes, and Preston, and produce one child. Getting arrested wasn’t in Natalie’s plan. Needing a public defender wasn’t in her plan. Falling for Grady Hunter, her public defender, definitely wasn’t in her plan. Can Grady convince Natalie there is more to life than her five-year plan? Is Ellie the only one who sees a future for Natalie and Grady?
