The Hopeful Romantic

writing stories to uplift and enliven


Thank you for stopping in to check this place out! I look forward to connecting with you and hope you'll enjoy my stories!

While you're here you can  read my blog (it has a page all its own), find links to my social media pages, and arguably most important: a signup for my newsletter (scroll down from here a tad if you're on a smart phone like I am most of the time).

As you might imagine, my newsletter has the most meat to it. Even more than my blog, and followed up by my Facebook group. Honestly, I don't share nearly as much through any social media as I do my newsletter because I don't have as much control of who sees what via those connections. 

Feel free to drop me a line and tell me what you've enjoyed about any of my stories you've read. I promise to respond as soon as I'm able!
