Driving to work this week I have been so enthralled by the beauty of the wild flowers that grow so profusely each spring.  The fields of bluebonnets, with a few Indian paint brushes thrown in for their bright orange color are just breath taking.  Next was a field painted entirely bright yellow with a flower that I don’t know the name of, but it’s gorgeous.

Come to think of it, that’s exactly what Josh said in Dreams Never Lie when he was admiring the cherry blossoms in D. C.  He couldn’t think of the name of the yellow flowers either.  Hmmm  I wonder why.  Guess I’d better Google it, that way Josh and I both can learn something new.

Shattered Dreams, the latest in the Dreams Never Lie series, is still in the works.  I put it on hold while I finished up The Color of Thunder.  I’ve had to really think about the direction the plot needs to go.  It’s gotten very complicated, but Dodge Brewster, the sheriff from Fire Light Fire Bright is now on hand to help Josh out.   They took their FBI training at Quantico together and remain friends to this day.

One of my problems is that I really like the antagonist in this story.  I can’t decide what I’m going to do about it.  I can’t let them get away with what they’ve done, but I so sympathize with the character.  It’s really a dilemma, and I keep see sawing back and forth as to the outcome.

Have I confused you at this point?  I surely hope so, because I am thoroughly confused myself.  Maybe Dodge can figure it out, because Josh and I sure are having a hard time deciding what to do.

When Elsie decided to try her hand at writing a novel, Fire Light Fire Bright was born followed by Dreams Never Lie -which quickly became her publisher’s first Best-Selling Series. The Color of Thunder was published right between Dreams are Forever and Shattered Dreams. Elsie was born in Brooksville, Florida. Some of her fondest memories were swimming at Pine Island in the nearby Gulf of Mexico. Weeki Wachee Springs is where she learned to swim. In the early 1980’s, Elsie and her three children, Katie, Lisa G. and Jes moved to Texas. Shortly after moving to North Central Texas, Elsie met her husband Ronnie on a blind date and after a whirlwind courtship, they married in April 1987. After 34 years, they're still going strong.
