Lillie Childress is an ambitious introvert who grew up in group homes in Texas. Her only family is Deborah whom she met in a group home when they were 7 years old. Lillie is sure of one thing. She’ll never be abandoned by a man or worse yet, have a child and be abandoned by a man. No marriage. Only simple, uncomplicated relationships as she eats her way across New Orleans, explores every park and venue, and enjoys every minute of it.
With that firm resolve, Lillie meets Charles Chauvet at a concert in Lafayette Park after work one spring afternoon. Charles is a crazy handsome extravert whose family has been in New Orleans since 1754 when his French Acadian ancestors arrived on a ship from an Acadian settlement in Canada. For reasons stemming from his childhood, Charles is also determined to keep his relationships simple and uncomplicated now and forever.
They began with a dinner here and a dinner there. Jogging and picnicking in Audubon Park. Enjoying a concert at Preservation Hall. Dancing at a neighborhood pub. Absolutely simple and uncomplicated.
Fall brought into their lives a hurricane and a surprise that Lillie could never have imagined. If you believe that love can conquer all, don’t miss this sweet romance. Escape now with this page-turning love story.

About the Author
I may have inherited my flair for storytelling from my father. I heard him spin a lot of good tales as I was growing up. Then came my degree in journalism and a lifelong career in many kinds of communication.
I served more than 14 years in various management positions (including president and chief paid staff) of Texas Safety Association, which was a not-for-profit statewide educational organization.
Along the way, I also served for 9 years as media contractor for Region 6 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (5 states and the Indian Nations via the Bureau of Indian Affairs Indian Highway Safety Program). My duties there included writing educational materials for Region 6 entities and their partners.
These jobs gave me the opportunity to tell stories of organizations and people who made a positive difference in the lives of others.
In retirement, I'm still telling stories. My focus now is on uplifting fiction for adults and children's stories. You can learn more about my writing and ask me questions at Goodreads
