Congratulations, Kit. You are the winner of Lynette Eason’s River of Secrets.

Jillian Hart is my guest this week. She writes for Love Inspired and Love Inspired Historicals and is very popular with the readers. If you are interested in entering her drawing for Her Wedding Wish, a Love Inspired, please leave a comment this week with a way to contact you (email addresses work) or email me at margaretdaley@gmail.com. The drawing will end next Sunday evening.

Jillian Hart’s bio:
Jill grew up on her family’s homestead on Washington state, near Carnation, Washington, where she raised cattle to pay for her college tuition, rode horses through the pristine foothills of the Cascade Mountain range and scribbled stories in her spare time.

After earning an English degree from Whitman College (what better way to go through college than to constantly read books?), she traveled, worked in advertising, taught Sunday school and volunteered before becoming a writer.
When she’s not hard at work on her next story, Jill can be found chatting with a friend, stopping for a café mocha with a book in hand, and spending quiet evenings at home with her family.

I’m done!!!
I am finished with writing my book (Poisoned Secrets–yep, a Love Inspired Suspense–kinda obvious by its title) that’s due next week!!!!!!!! Can you tell that I am excited? Writing suspense can be hard–juggling a romance, a suspense and a faith element. It’s a nice feeling to have it done–soon to be mailed. Just in time for my vacation. Now I can go lie on a beach without a care for one whole week.

In celebration I went out to lunch with a good friend and then to see the movie Get Smart. I can remember watching the show back–actually I don’t remember when it was on television. The movie was cute, light and had funny moments. I thought they did a good job recreating the characters. If you want to escape to a movie that isn’t serious or heavy, Get Smart is the one for you.

On the subject of movies, I have seen the Indiana Jones new one and Iron Man and enjoyed both of them. There are several I can’t wait to see. They showed a trailer for Batman that looked really good. I loved the first one with Christian Bale as Batman. Also Hancock seems like a different kind of super hero movie. I will be interested in seeing how they transform Will Smith’s character into a “hero” because he certainly isn’t one at the beginning from what I’ve seen on the trailer.

What are some movies you are waiting to see or have seen this summer that you would recommend?
