Oh, oh, I missed my May blog, but I do have an excuse. Last month I traveled out of the country to Cuba. What an exciting adventure I had. The trip was for both business as well as pleasure. I plan on using some of the locales in Cuba as the backdrop for a future novel.
Right now I'm busy writing the second novel in my Stillwaters Trilogy and I'm using a trip I took to London, England last year as a backdrop for Jolene Carson's storyline. For those of you who haven't read Someone Like Me, the first book in my series , Jolene is the youngest of the three Carson sisters that were introduced in Someone Like Me, and Jolene's quite a character. I'm having a lot of fun pitting this mouthy fish-out-of-water against the stiff upper lip British. Having Jolene walk the same streets that I walked in London really brings the story to life. Meanwhile, there's a really good Four Star Review about Someone Like Me on Amazon.com. I've taken the liberty of posting it below.

This is an excellent writer. I loved how she weaved the characters, this was a very good example of character development. The Heroine was quite something and enjoyed watching her climb the ladder of hope all by herself. This was a wonderful story of perseverance, faith, the strength of a woman and most of all HOPE! Very well done Ms. Rhodes, keep them coming.
I certainly will do that and I'm grateful for the review. Click the Someone Like Me cover and it will take you to Amazon.com
