A Day Off by Tara Randel

Right now I’m in-between books. During a break like this, I enjoy a day off to regroup and be inspired by the world around me before diving into a new project. Last week, my daughter and I went to Epcot’s Festival of the Arts. It was wonderful day to be outside, crowd-watching and eating some of the culinary delights. And walking. Lots of walking. Which was needed after a dessert like this.


Mostly, I love getting away from the every-day routine for a few hours. Having a annual pass to the Disney parks is a splurge my daughter and I invest in every year. It’s an outing we look forward to together. There are so many creative and inventive things to see in the parks, so it appeals to the writer in me. Everyone has their favorite place to get inspiration. Besides the parks, it is the mountains or camping for me. It’s important to have a free day here and there to spend time with loved ones and just catch your breath from the busyness of life.

So imagine my surprise when a sky writer left this message in the blue space above the park.



When we first saw love being spelled out, I figured it would have something to do with an attraction or advertisement. But when God came next, my daughter and I were shocked. And pleased. Lots of people were taking pictures and commenting on the message. Imagine, God being a part of a day at the park! I was thrilled that someone wanted to make a statement above a very secular industry and people gazing up at the sky were touched by the words.

Our time spent getting away turned out to be a very special day indeed. Don’t you love it when God shows up!

New Book Release

I’m so excited to announce that my February book, Always The One, is available today!



She’s the love of his life…

…but is he still hers?

FBI agent Derrick Matthews has finally found his childhood sweetheart and the love of his life—but she isn’t exactly happy about it! Years ago, Hannah Rawlings disappeared overnight when her family went on the run, and she blames Derrick. She tells him she’s moved on and he should, too, but Derrick fears Hannah’s still in danger. He vows to protect her—even if that means betraying her trust…again.
