I’m so excited for spring! Aren’t you? One of my favorite parts is going to farmer’s markets for fresh produce. I always look for fresh raspberries, blackberries and strawberries to make freezer jam with. Then, I make our favorite Fruit Pizza. Yum! I’ve included a great gardening tip for you gardeners out there, and my recipe for Fruit Pizza so you can enjoy those fresh fruits of summer too! And after that I have a fun interview with my characters, Jack and Darci, from A SEAL’s Song along with buy links– in case you don’t want to wait for the giveaway 🙂 Enjoy!
Does anyone use Pinterest? I love it! I found this tip on there and thought I’d share my Jennifer’s Pinterest Page and the tip with you-feel free to follow me, I’ll follow back! Here’s the awesome tip I found: Sprinkle cinnamon on the soil after seeds are planted or when fungus or mold is detected on the seedling or plant to kill the fungus or mold. Awesome, right?

8 ounce cream cheese, softened
¼ c powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries (picture credit:Knightia13 at English Wikipedia [CC BY-SA 3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)%5D, via Wikimedia Commons)

Interview with Jack and Darci from A SEAL’s Song:
Did you ever think that your life would end up being in a book?
Jack: Hell, no.
Darci: No, but it’s flattering.
What are your favorite scenes in your book: the action, the dialog or the romance?
Darci: *smiles* The romance. I already know what Jack is going to say.
Jack: *grins* Sorry, hun. The action. And the sex.
*Darci rolls her eyes*
What do you like to do when you are not being actively read somewhere?
Jack: Take my sailboat out deep sea fishing.
Darci: I’m not much for fishing, that’s Jack’s thing. I’m usually in my studio writing and composing songs. But, when he gets home… *she smiles at Jack who grins back*
Do you like the way the book ended?
Jack and Darci in unison: Yes.
Would you be interested in a sequel, if your writer was so inclined?
Jack: Not if it means putting Darci in more danger.
Darci: Agreed. Although, with Jack at my side, I wouldn’t be as afraid of what Jennifer threw at us. *leans in and whispers* She likes to torment us.
What do you do for a living?
Darci: *laces her fingers through Jacks* Jack is a Navy SEAL and the bravest, strongest man I know. I’m a singer.
What is your most prized possession?
Darci: A Celtic necklace given to me by my grandmother. Had it not been for that necklace, I never would have met Jack.
What do you like most about where you live?
Jack: Darci approved of my house. That’s all that matters to me.
Darci: He lives in this cute gingerbread house on the ocean. I adore it.
What’s your favorite thing to do on a rainy Sunday?
Jack: *grins* Stay in bed.
Darci: *nods* Definitely.
What is your least favorite word?
What sound or noise do you love?
Jack: Sorry, that’s between me and my wife. *an intimate look passes between Jack and Darci*
What other profession would you like to try?
Darci: I’ve considered becoming a music teacher. Jack, he’s right where he was meant to be.
Blurb for A SEAL’s Song:
Navy SEAL Jack Taggart’s plans to catch some much-needed downtime between deployments are demolished when he risks everything to rescue beautiful wedding singer, Darci O’Shea, from a band of thieves. Will the battle between their inner demons be the hardest one to fight, or will they find rescue in each other’s arms?
