The women of Bliss County have a pact—to find husbands. The right husbands.
Q: Melody’s “marriage charms” (from the bet she made with her friends about getting married and not settling for anyone but the right one in THE MARRIAGE PACT) seem to be working perfectly! At one point in this book, Melody thinks about making a marriage charm for Junie. Is it the pact, or the charm—or both!—that are working their “spell” on the girls?
A: I have been influenced by SO many books over my life and career. Like most writers, I love to read, and I learn something from every writer I come across. I enjoy meaty historical novels especially—Dorothy Dunnett is a favorite of mine, and I loved all of Taylor Caldwell’s books, too.
A: After a personal quiet time, exercise and breakfast, I head for my office, Monday through Friday, and spend around 5 hours at my computer, actually putting words on the screen.

A: Yep, THE MARRIAGE SEASON is Bex’s story. Bex wants very much to be a bride, like her friends, Melody and Hadleigh, but, marriage pact or none, she has her doubts, too.
