Some say life’s a competition.

I say, Yeah, maybe, but since we all cross the same finish line, why not buzz along with family, sports, blossoms, suspense and chocolate?

You see, I’m the sixth of eight Furlongs. In horse-racing parlance, that drops me just round the last bend. Where the thoroughbreds break for the finish line. An exciting spot. Fits me like a lucky horseshoe. My siblings around me, my goals large and looming, and my hands on the reins. Anything can happen.

In my fiction, it does. Game to find out?

NEW SERIES – Sisterhood of Shepherds:

Heartsong by Nicola Furlong Everyone has regrets; sometimes we wish we had the chance and the courage to make amends. These “cold cases of the heart” are at the centre of the Sisterhood of Shepherds, my new cozy contemporary women’s fiction series starring three adult sisters, Faith, Hope and Charly Shepherd, who hesitantly answer a personal calling to assist others in atoning for past wrongs.

Their ongoing journey, one of discovery, heartache, humor and redemption, begins in Book 1, Heartsong.
