I need your help!

My oldest nephew and his darling girlfriend are facing serious medical issues due to their being hit by an uninsured vehicle. They were on my nephew's motorcycle and have sustained serious injuries. Please pray for them and help as you can!  THANK YOU!!!

HELP ANDREW & ASHLEY

Please help with Andrew Floied & Ashley Morgan’s medical expenses! An uninsured driver has seriously injured the young couple on Thursday, August 15, 2013. Wearing helmets and riding safety gear, the couple were on their way back from visiting ‘the cross’ on Monteagle Mountain. Twenty-one-year old Andrew had enlisted in the Marines a few months previously and the couple of several years were spending as much time together as possible prior to his leaving for boot camp and were enjoying their leisurely ride. A woman driving on a three times revoked license ran through a flashing red traffic light and broadsided their motorcycle without ever slowing or braking. Ashley was thrown from the motorcycle and landed in a post office parking lot. Andrew was pinned between the motorcycle and the car. Critical, both of them were airlifted to Erlanger Medical Center to the trauma unit. Ashley broke her left femur, tibia, and fibula and sustained multiple other serious injuries. Andrew broke his left humerus, tibia, fibula, shattered his pelvis, punctured his lung, and has multiple other serious injuries. By the grace of God, neither suffered any apparent brain injury thus far. Both are still in critical condition. Andrew is facing multiple more surgeries. Both are looking at months of their lives snatched away as they fight to recover from this tragedy. Between medical bills, missed work, and all the other expenses these two and their families are facing, the costs are already staggering. The two helicopter rides alone are expected to be over $50,000. Andrew has health insurance that will help with some of his expenses. Ashley does not. She graduated from nursing school as an LPN earlier this year, has been working PRN while searching for a full time job. The woman who hit them had no insurance. Andrew had minimum insurance on his motorcycle and it isn’t clear yet how much of Ashley’s bills, if any, will be covered.
I am Andrew’s aunt (Jennifer’s sister) and love these two kids. I am so frustrated that someone has done this to them by pure carelessness. They and their families are incurring so much financial burden already during this time between travel, time off work, etc. that giving to them financially and establishing a way for others to ease that strain seemed a small thing for me to do. Please help and pray for these two good kids/young adults who are now facing a very different future than the ones they had chosen, dreamed of, and worked so hard to achieve. For locals who would like to donate directly, please drop off an envelope with FOR ANDREW & ASHLEY with whatever you can give or a check made out to Andrew Floied or Ashley Morgan at Dr. Jay Trussler's office in Manchester and it will be given directly to family. Donations can also be given at Toliver's Pawn Shop on the square in Manchester. Please pray for Andrew, Ashley, and their families and help financially as you can. Thank you with all my heart, and I know Andrew, Ashley, and their families feel the same. God bless.

Long lost author

Wow. Can't believe how long its been since I've posted on my blog. Guess with the FACEBOOK wave, blogging has taken a bit of a backseat. At least for me. I do post fairly regularly on my FACEBOOK account, so definitely for routine updates on me and my crazy life, that's definitely the place to stay in touch.

Since last posting here, I've had several books to come out. :) The Nurse Who Saved Christmas, The Doctor's Damsel in Distress, and Flirting with the Society Doctor. :) You can find them on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and such places for download or purchase. I am on a computer where I dont have easy access to covers and links, but will try to come back in the near future and post them. You buy that, right? I mean it has only been almost a year since I last posted here. ;) Seriously, I will try to do better. :)

I still have my Matthew McConnaughey obsession. The man does have a yummy chest and abs after all. I have changed jobs and am back in family medicine, which I love. After a very emotional 2010, life is good again.

Anyway, that's a quick update on me. Hope all is well and God bless!

Writing With The Stars!

You've heard of Dancing with the Stars? Well, now there's Writing with the Stars. The contest is being held very similar to the American Title contest that JANE MILLIONAIRE won back in 2005. My mentee, the very talented Madeline Smyth, is a finalist in this new writing contest! I'm so very proud of her. :)

Help make Madeline's dream of having her novel published a reality by voting for her novel, Aliya Arabesque, at here or by pasting in the following: http://www.rtbookreviews.com/content/writing-stars-vote-first-paragraph-and-last-line It will bring up the link automatically just below the pasted part. You'll need to scroll to Madeline's photo before finalizing (same photo as on her blog at http://www.madelinesmyth.blogspot.com).

Thanks so much! And let's keep our fingers crossed that she wins this awesome contest!!

Also, my latest release OFFICER, SURGEON...GENTLEMAN! is now available from eharlequin! I had so much fun writing Cole & Amelia's story and hope you'll check out their story while it's still available. Click here to find out more.

Also, Dr. Di Angelo's Baby Bombshell is currently still available at eharlequin, but hurry to get your copy as they won't be available much longer. Click here for more details.

I'll be in Newark, New Jersey in a couple of weeks at the New Jersey Romance Writers Conference and am looking forward to catching up with friends old and making new!

In November, I'll be in Birmingham for the Southern Magic Readers Luncheon. If you're in the Birmingham area and haven't bought your ticket yet, be sure to check this luncheon out. There's always a fabulous turnout and lots of great authors to lunch with. Lots of fun.

In December, be sure to look for my next release, THE NURSE WHO SAVED CHRISTMAS. This is my first Christmas story and was lots of fun to try to capture the magic of Christmas while writing a Medical Romance. Love the paperback cover, but I haven't seen the hardback version yet, although I should be getting my author copy soon. :)
