I might as well say this right now because you’re probably thinking it anyway – my last name is McDonald and I live on a farm. Go ahead and laugh at the irony of it—you won’t be the first and you won’t be the last, I’m sure.
Love Blossom Farm is my favorite place on earth even when the smell of manure drifts over from Jake Taylor’s dairy farm! It’s not a big farm—I grow numerous varieties of lettuce, herbs and as many vegetables as I can to feed my family and sell at the farmer’s market.
Family is Amelia, aged almost thirteen and Billy Jr. who is almost nine. Bill senior, known as “Wild Bill” sadly died in a motorcycle accident several years ago. Somehow I’m coping even though I still miss him.
Amelia has recently become glued to her cell phone (a present from her grandparents) while Billy is still a little boy—always outside and nearly always covered in dirt!
My blog, The Farmer’s Daughter, has become quite popular which is a wonderful surprise. I share recipes, household tips and tales of life on a farm with two children.
Ours is a relatively quiet life…at least it was until murder struck!
No Farm, No Foul, which is a RT Magazine TOP PICK, is book #1 in the all new Farmer’s Daughter series, and will be out on September 6 and is available for pre-order now!
To celebrate the Killer Characters’ summer giveaway, I am giving away a copy of either Berried Secrets or Berry the Hatchet (your choice) from my Cranberry Cove series.
