I got into writing seriously when my son started school in 1980. It wasn't till we'd moved from Michigan to California that I got my first computer and dotmatrix printer. After many attempts to send in error free submissions that first computer was like heaven had opened its doors to me.
For the next three years I sent out a submission every month and got rejected just as promptly.
I wanted to write mystery and romance as those were the genres I read in extensively.
Writer's Digest was my best friend, guide and source in those early years...I joined Romance Writers of America and entered their national writing competition the RITA.
I was floored when an editor called me and said an assistant editor had read my entry and Silhouette wanted my book...so there I was in 1990...a published author.
PUBLISHER: Books We Love.
Faith, Hope and Love was my entry in the RITA. It was first titled 'Winner Takes All'. When RWA informed me I was a finalist in the traditional category I was floored. I can't tell you what it meant to be a finalist along with Debbie Macomber and Lucy Gordon (the winner).
FH&L came out in print the following year and with help and support from my friends in RWA's Orange County Chapter, under the pseudonym Geeta Kingsley, I began life as a published author.
Faith Hope and Love will now be coming out online, published by BOOKS WE LOVE.
Its the story of Luke a man who buries his own needs to do what's right by his orphaned nephew Gordon and Rachel, a woman who rushes back to the States from Bangladesh to try and get custody of Gordon, her cousin's baby son. She loses the case but Luke takes her back to his thoroughbred ranch, the Diamond Bar, where they both discover the path to true love. It is a case of 'winner takes all' for everyone finally.
I hope you'll enjoy reading this book as much as I did writing it...
