Could it be Empty Nest Syndrome?


This week I sent another book out into the big world. It’s always scary to do so, and after I’ve uploaded it, and it’s on it’s way, I’m left twiddling my thumbs and feeling kind of lost.

It’s a project I’ve worked on for (at least) the past six months, and suddenly, I don’t have anything to do anymore. I know. I could start writing the next book, but I’ve learned to give my poor old brain a rest between books, or it’s easy to confuse it. The last thing I want to do is start calling my new character by the name of the character that was in the previous book!

So, for the past few days I’ve wandered around the house, looking for new projects. I’ve spent more time studying God’s Word–I never seem to have enough time to delve into His beautiful book. I finished an ongoing quilt project that I thought I’d never complete. I’ve even thought about starting a new sewing project, but can’t seem to get focused enough to do so. I have several guest blog posts I should be working on, but there again, can’t seem to find the motivation.

I remember this feeling. Parents go through this when their child leaves for college and suddenly isn’t around anymore. Empty Nest Syndrome.


Is that what I have?

I suppose it could be. I’ve lived with the characters in my most recent book for months. Their thoughts have been my thoughts, and their struggles, my struggles. And now, suddenly they aren’t here anymore. No wonder I’m going through withdrawals!

It’s fine though. I’ve gone through this same separation every time I’ve finished one of my books and sent it on its way. And I know that before long, I’ll have new friends planning their escapades in my head and keeping me up nights. I love it!

Right now, though, I think I’ll go take a nap.

A Baker’s Dozen . . .

A Baker’s Dozen . . .

I’m excited to report, today I released my thirteenth novel.

When I started on this journey of writing six years ago, I never dreamed I would have published thirteen books just six short years later. But I’ve certainly enjoyed writing each and every one of them.

My latest novel, A Place Called Hart’s Desire, is set in the Blue Ridge Mountains.


Christian Romance Author Ellie Hathaway escapes for two weeks to a cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains, intent on finishing her book within the deadline. Of course, it only confuses the issue that the cabin she’s staying at is the same one her parents originally reserved for her now-defunct honeymoon.

Then Ellie meets the owner’s son, Lucas Hart—a widower wracked by grief and with a heart hardened against God. Ellie is immediately drawn to Luke, but she cautions herself against falling for a man so obviously still in love with his dead wife.

Can Ellie help Luke find his way back to God? And in the process, will Ellie’s heart be totally broken—or will she also learn to forgive, and love again?

It’s available as an ebook for Kindle at, and will shortly be available to order in paperback.

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it!


God bless!

“Loved the book “Mattie’s Heart” (The Morgan Family Saga). Having read all the “True Cover” books this was exciting to see where it all began. Even if you haven’t read the “True Cover” series this would be a good one to start with.
I like the way the author told of the times of hardship they experienced. Not only living out west, but hardships with marriage , grief and personal life. These apply even today in our lives. I would highly recommend this book.”  — an Amazon reviewer

“I’m not usually one for this type of story, but I couldn’t wait to read this story of the Patriarch and Matriarch of the Morgan Family. The founders of the Blue Creek Ranch. I am a huge fan of the True Cover series and I really wanted to see how it all started. Mattie and Brady endured a lot of hardship and loss, but didn’t lose their faith. They realized that God was their Provider, Sustainer, Comforter, and their absolute everything.”  — a reviewer on Amazon

The Author Ruth Kyser did not leave us hanging on her book True Cover. This sequel is absolutely the perfect follow up. It tells us the future of the main characters and introduced us to more. It is every bit as riveting as the past follows them to the ranch. Thanks Author Ruth Kyser for another wonderful book.”   — Cher on


This is the second book in the series by Ruth Kyser and I felt like I was catching up with old friends when I read it.
