I love this day. It’s June 21st, the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. We get a few more moments of daylight. The sun rises just a wee bit earlier and sets just a wee bit later. I love the sunshine, and thankfully here in Northern California we’re finally getting warm days. San Francisco has been in the 70’s, with the inland areas reaching into the 100’s. Some may say the days are too warm, but after months of extended rain I’m ready for the sun and heat.
So what else makes the summer solstice so special for me. I like the idea of more. More daylight, more sun, more of an indication that summer is finally here, and more time for romance. It’s all those things we associate with romance; long walks on the beach, moonlight strolls, candlelight, and lots of skin showing as the sweaters come off and the shorts go on. It’s all good.
And that’s what my writing is all about. I love romance. I love reading about it, writing about it, and experiencing it. I look forward to sharing my thoughts and writing with you.
Oh, and by the way, my soon to be released novel, Return In Time, uses the summer solstice as the magical day when my heroine begins her magical journey through time. Yes, it’s all so magical.
