Thanks for looking up my website and taking the time to find out more about my books and me. I am delighted to report that I have two books coming out in 2014. The Art of Arranging Flowers, published by Berkley Books will be out in late summer. I am writing that one under my married name, Lynne Branard. It is a story influenced by my year working in Chewelah, Washington and my interest in the saving grace of beauty and particularly of the saving grace of flowers. It’s a little magical, a little romantic, and I think, hopeful. It is the story of Ruby Jewell, a florist who has a gift for arranging just the right bouquets to create love and goodwill, but who must have a little help in learning how to open her own heart to the beauty of life around her.
The second book that will come out in 2014 is Book One in a new mystery series, published by Thomas Nelson. The series will be entitled The Divine Private Detective Agency and is based in Madrid, New Mexico. The main character is a nun trying to decide if she wants to stay in the religious order or follow in her father’s footsteps and become a private detective. These books are light and easy stories and will hopefully delight and entertain!
I am excited about these new writing ventures and I will keep you posted about the publication dates and more information about both books here on my website and on my Facebook page, Lynne Hinton Books. Also, I continue to teach classes and lead retreats on writing as a spiritual practice. For more information on these events, check out my Facebook page or contact me and I’ll fill you in.
Thanks again for finding me on the web and for your support of my writing!
