For MILITARY WIVES AND LOVES here’s a link to two authors who have written spectacular books that help military spouses and families. I can’t recommend these books enough and its been a long time coming. What I learned the hard way, through trial and error and help from my mother, is in Shelly Vandervoote’s book, Separated by Duty, United in Love. Kathie Hightower and Holly Scherer's book, Help! I'm a Military Spouse: I Want a Life Too!, you find steps to help you, ways to make a job while your stationed over seas. And Advice on creating time and space that is yours alone.

And of course, there’s Chicken Soup for the Military Wife’s Soul. Stories that will inspire and warm your heart, each written by military wives from world war II till now. I’ve got one in there too, Sacrifices, and I wrote it when we were stationed in Okinawa Japan. Its been printed before on navylifelines.com and its in the front of the Key Volunteer handbook for Marine Wives.

Also for the civilians out there who read my books but find the jargon confusing sometimes, this link will bring you up to speed or just inform.

ASPIRING WRITERS: For those of you out there who want to write a romance novel, your first stop should be Romance wrtiters of America - ww.rwanational.org. You can’t go wrong there. Joining will get you so much more than a monthy magazine and RWA is the only writer organization that has unpublished writers in its membership.

Now, there are a lot of How-To books out there and below I’ve listed my personal favorites. Before you ask, yes, after 35 books I still re-read them and use them constantly to refresh the basics. Sure, there are lots more out there, but I consider these essential to crafting a good story, no matter what genre.
