My newest book, The Earl’s Masquerade, is available now on Amazon. This is my first Regency romance novel, and I am pretty excited to share t with you. I hope you will love it as much as I do.
Hello everyone! I am pleased to announce that the 2nd Lacing Words compilation is out now. It is called Lacing Words: Stitching Shadows, and it is filled with wonderful writings from around the world. I am so thrilled and proud to be a part of this joint effort. A special thanks to the amazing poet, Kay Gardner, for bringing us all together.
Hey, everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving. I, unfortunately, was sick the entire four days I was off work, so spent most of the long weekend in bed reading. I did get a wee bit of writing done on Love’s Embrace, book 2 in my (as yet, untitled) inspirational romance series.
When I wrote the first book, Brother’s Keeper, I was intending to write a series, but God had other plans. I have also had several requests from people who read Brother’s Keeper, hoping to read Paul and Jenna’s story. It is still in the very early stages of development.
Here is something fun I recently participated in. My favorite modern poet, Kay Gardner, brought together poets and writers from all over the world as contributors in this compilation. I am really proud to be a part of it. My contribution includes several of my previously published poems and a few new/unpublished ones. I hope you’ll check it out.
I hope you all had a lovely time ringing in the new year. Last year held many ups and downs for each of us and for our world as a whole. I thank each and every one of my wonderful readers for your love, support, and encouragement throughout the year. I hope and pray you will all be wonderfully blessed in 2017!

Lisa and Matt start to grow close, but Lisa has a crisis and pushes him away when she realizes he is training to be a Pastor. Lisa’s friend, Jenna, comes to visit and tries to help Lisa through her uncertainty. She is sure Lisa and Matt are destined to be together. She tries to convince Lisa that God has brought Matt into her life and he knows what she can and cannot handle.
Jenna and Paul in the meantime grow very close and Jenna is not sure how to deal with her feelings. Just as everything seems to be sorting itself out, Rhiann, the only one of the friends who is not a christian, comes to visit and in true Rhiann style, stirs everything up, causing pain and confusion at every oblivious turn…
This book is focused not only on romance, but on spiritual growth.
It is relatively fast paced and easy to read. All in all, it is a nice, feel good book to read.
Wrote this one today to honor my West Virginia family.
APPALACHIAN ADORATION 2/12/16
By Kimberly Westrope
Black hills glow golden in the sun;
Life flourishes in the face of adversity,
Building bonds that won’t bend nor break,
A faith that won’t falter when misfortune prevails.
The rigid backbones of these hills
Are strengthened with each burden born.
Songs erupt in the splendor of silence
With the dawn of each new morning.
These hills and hollows are as old as time,
Yet remain timeless in their beauty.
Hundreds of thousands of souls have lain
Their hands to this rich soil, toiled this land.
In sorrowful squalor, there is yet a vast fortune
To be held in the hearts of generations to come;
A claim to a heritage hard won and clung to
With severity and firm conviction.
You can leave the place,
But the place will never leave you;
The ghosts of yesteryear follow silently
Into the haunted hollows of tomorrow.
