Fall Colors, Cold Evenings and Long Nights.

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I live in the Ozark Mountains and look forward to the changing colors. They're so vibrant and calming and this time of year really pushes my daily word count up. 

                       Now, Don't those pictures relax you?  
I can here your questions. How can leaves changing colors help someone write more? Well let me explain.

In the fall the temperatures fall, which generally make people happier, more relaxed. The days get shorter, which means I have more time inside. Now do you get to the point.  : )
I live on a farm, with a big garden and there's always work to be done. I'm outside most evenings until seven or eight. By the time we eat dinner, then clean up I don't get a chance to sit until after nine. Which doesn't leave a lot of time in front of the computer. 

With the fall we till the garden up and get it ready for next year. The plants are covered with mulch and ready for the winter and mowing the grass is over. Yeah  : ) 
Then the days get shorter which means I get to go inside earlier.
Dinner is served at an earlier hour and I get more time to write.
That's why I love fall. It allows me to write more without feeling guilty because I have so much work to be done around me.

What helps you find more time to write?

Here's a little peak into what I'm working on.

Last Chance to Run, Romantic Suspense.

What if you found out the daughter you buried was alive and being held captive by a man you thought you killed?
Ron Daily gave everything he had to the FBI. It was his life since his daughter’s death. Then his world crashed in around him when he’s told the terrorist he thought he destroyed staged her death. As obstacles mount against his daughter he forms an alliance with another agent, a stubborn redhead with links to a secret from his past. Can he fight feelings for a woman that will never love him once she finds out the truth? 

If I knew then, Young Adult

Angel dreamed of a life of freedom. One filled with love that didn’t come with a price.  She hid the pain until Jax entered her life. Can he give her what she needs to let go of the past or will he leave her with a bigger challenge that will change her future?

Angel fought to keep her family safe from the evil that threatened to destroy her. She made sure she was always the one in front of her sisters when her Mother yielded her wrath. Keeping the danger that surrounded them a secret to lessen the blow she lived a lie that everyone believed, except for one. He was her only source of happiness until one day he was gone. With nothing left and no one to turn to she must outrun her past, and overcome the secret that she fights to hide, before her Mother destroys everything she has left to hold on to. 

Thanks for stopping by
Until Next Time

Autumn is my favorite time of year, also. I live on the southeastern Colorado prairie, so our fall colors aren't as vibrant as yours (somewhat envious of your trees-lolol), but there is still something beautiful and breathtaking in an autumn sunset sending its colors over the prairie.
