Today's guest is Catherine Bybee, author of Highland Shifter. New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling author Catherine Bybee has been addicted to romance since her teens. After spending a decade of her life working as an RN in urban emergency rooms, Catherine is now dedicated to writing happily-ever-afters for the world to love. Catherine is married and raising two sons in Southern California. She loves hearing from her readers so feel free to visit her at:
Here is a blurb of her new book:
Helen Adams has a knack for finding lost objects, but the Simon McAllister she finds isn’t what she expected. The missing California teen is now a grown man—a kilted, sword wielding, Highland warrior.Today, Catherine wants to talk about mothers. How wonderful!
A mysterious Druid book and Helen’s sixth sense send her to Scotland in search of a missing boy. After being attacked by strange men dressed in medieval garb, a handsome, desirable hero answering to the boy’s name rescues her. No one is more surprised than she to find herself in sixteenth century Scotland. Unable to deny the reality of time travel, Helen discovers smoldering passion with a man destined to leave her.
Simon has lived his Druid life in two very different worlds, two vastly different times, and when Helen practically lands in his lap, he knows his life is about to change forever. There are enemies in California lying in wait for her, and an army in Scotland closing in on his family. Simon is the only person who can protect her. But when she learns his most guarded secret, will she still want him? Can Helen love a Highland Shifter?
Celebrating Mom by Catherine Bybee
Because I’m a writer of romance, I find that the majority of my readers are women. I know not all of them are, but it’s safe to say most are. Because it is the day after Mother’s Day I thought it would be fun to do a post about what people do for their mothers and how it differs over the ages.
Young children will often make their mother’s gifts at school…crafts of some sort (My favorite is the plaster hand stamp). As they grow older they may make breakfast for their moms…or buy a card if someone ‘drives’ them to the store to do it. Flowers start to arrive when a child grows into a young adult…and then after they’re out of the house they might make a point of taking their mothers out for lunch or dinner.
So what do moms really want for Mother’s Day?
I can only speak for myself. I will cherish all the ‘trinkets’ my children have given me -- handmade cups and plaster thingamagigs. They are a special testament of childhood and I don’t know one mom who doesn’t appreciate these things. If I’m given a homemade card, chances are I’ll put it in a box and keep it forever. A flower picked from a garden and given because “I thought of you, Mom” is pressed into the pages of a special book.
It’s the little things that we do for our Mothers that matter.
So, dear reader, what did you do for your mom this Mother’s Day, and if you’re a mom, what did your children do for you?
My oldest daughter is in preschool now, so I got taken on a Mother's Picnic, plus she gave me a real flower that she planted herself in a flowerpot that she painted! I can't stop looking at it!
