#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller

The sky looks heavy with snow, and my towering pines stand tall, as if awaiting a blanket of white. What a joy and a luxury it is to write with this beautiful view before me.

I can just SEE the barn, built in its perfect spot, with my beloved horses home again. Although they are just up the road, in a truly wonderful stable, I miss them so much. This is a critter kind of place–lots of fur around. Lots of warm, wriggly bodies, bursting with unconditional love. (Oh, Lord, make me the kind of person these animals think I am!)

Tomorrow (Feb. 28) I will be at Auntie’s Bookstore here in Spokane, at 7:30 pm. I sure hope to see some of you there. “McKettrick’s Choice” will be available in paperback, too. The cover is beautiful, and they printed the Angus quote twice. I guess the Universe wants us to pay attention.

What did Angus say? Something like this: “Don’t let the bastards make you scared. That’s how they get you. Don’t you ever let anybody or anything make you scared.” He was speaking to Jeb at the time, but I think we would all do well to heed those rough, rustic, and typically Angus McKettrick words.

Fear is a choice, after all. Might just as well choose courage instead, and get on with it. As my daddy always says, and Angus echoed, “We’re burnin’ daylight!”
