Summer brings distractions — see my recent blog about blueberries! — but it’s also a great time to write. As a kid, I used to climb a tree with a pad and pen to write on quiet summer days. I don’t climb trees anymore, but I do keep spinning stories. I look forward to getting more of them in your hands ASAP.

Meanwhile, I keep writing, if not on my favorite branch high in my favorite old sugar maple on our family homestead.

Happy reading, and happy summer!

About Carla…

Carla Neggers is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than seventy-five novels, including Saint’s Gate, Secrets of the Lost Summer, The Widow, Cold Ridge and Rival’s Break. She’s been writing ever since she climbed a tree with pad and pen at age eleven while growing up in rural western Massachusetts.

In addition to writing, Carla has recently taken up running. She’s completed the Covered Bridges Half Marathon in Vermont several times and the Dingle Half Marathon in Ireland. She and her husband live on a hilltop in Vermont, not far from Quechee Gorge, and love to travel, garden, hike and enjoy good times—and a taoscán of whiskey—with family and friends.
