Twenty years ago, Merri Maywether went on a date with a very sweet man from Montana. Three weeks later they were engaged and they have lived happily ever after.
When I write my romance novels, the characters are the people that I see on a day to day basis. Up here in what I like to call the far, far north, people work hard, live fiercely, and love knowing that they have a community of people behind them to celebrate the victories and support them through the hardships.
The best part...similar to the characters in my stories, we all work together to make every day a happily ever after.
