SUMMERLICIOUS @kathleenlawless


I am a confessed summer-a-holic.  I live to wear flipflops.  I love toes in the sand, picnics, beach time with a great book and pool time with a great cocktail.  

Summer, besides bringing us the lovely long light evenings of solstice, lends itself to family and friends connecting over barbeques, outdoor concerts, picnics, and bocce on the beach.  Whether biking, hiking, or paddling, I’m not sure if life slows down or speeds up, but it sure feels good.  And let’s not forget farmer’s markets, garden-fresh produce, leisurely patio dinners and stunning flowers everywhere.

I can’t read my tablet in the sun so old-fashioned paper books rule, part of summer’s charm.  What’ your favorite thing about summer?   What’s your best memory? 

     Kathleen Lawless’ earliest memories are of wanting to be a writer.  To create stories that would touch the lives of others who love to read the way she does.
     “I’m working on my 24th novel and it’s amazing to see the changes in traditional publishing, including ebooks and the opportunities writers have to interact with their readers.”  She enjoys pushing the boundaries of traditional romance, erotic romance, romantic suspense, women’s fiction and stories for young adults. 
      She also knows firsthand about happy endings.  “Can you believe I wrote A HARD MAN TO LOVE with a hero named Steele, years before I met my own hero named Steel?  His proposal to me on a remote island in the Caribbean was more romantic than anything I could have written about.” 

     Her books have garnered numerous awards including Romantic Times K.I.S.S., a Scarlett Letter, and a Golden Quill, along with rave reviews.

  1. You've described the summer season perfectly. Spending time outside is such a gift! I love everything you've summarized, that's for sure. Enjoy the days ahead.

    1. You too, Jodie. Loving the cloudless blue sky. Makes it hard to be inside at the computer.

  2. You really captured the summer feeling. Summer feels more leisurely for some reason, and I like that. I love going barefoot and swimming in Lake Michigan. I think one of my favorite memories was going to the pool or lake with my children when they were young. School was out, our schedule was easy going, and we spent the day in swimsuits and eating picnic food.

    1. Exactly, Lynn. We did the same. Was it me or did life seem kinder and gentler?

  3. Love this post! Summer Nights! Tell me more! Tell me more!

  4. You nailed the good things about summer, Kathleen.

  5. Yes, I love summer. Guess I'm forced to since I live in Texas where the summer stretches from May to October. *g* Totally agree with your summer faves.
