Stealing Runner’s Heart Available

Stealing Runner’s Heart Available

When she was a child, he was her hero.
When she grew up, he was her dream.

Stealing Runner's HeartCharlotte Rose has loved Runner Jeffries since she was a little girl. He taught her almost everything she needed to know about living, and they were constant companions until he went away to college. But even that didn’t end their friendship, and they remained close through the years.

Runner Jeffries has loved Charlotte Rose for as long as he’s known her . . . just like a little sister. She’s been his friend and confidante, and even time and distance hasn’t interrupted their attachment to each other.

Runner is now a famous baseball star for The Jersey Force and Charlotte is a New York lawyer. She’s decided it’s time to take their relationship to the next level and she’s ready to let him know that she is in love with him and would like a deeper bond.

A whirlwind makeover for a sophisticated new look is part of her plan to make him see that she is no longer the girl next door. When she picks him up at the airport and his drop-dead gorgeous fiancee is in tow, Charlotte’s hopes are shattered.

Will she let go of her lifelong dream, or will she give it one more valiant try before the last curtain falls on her forever plans?

Stealing Runner’s Heart is an easy reading, funny, poignant, and tender love story that will stay with you long after the last page is turned.

Maisy’s Mirror on Audio

Mimi Foster AudiobookI am proud to announce that my first audiobook, Maisy’s Mirror, is available on Amazon/ACX.

After culling through dozens of auditions to find a voice/actor I thought would produce an interesting and listenable experience, I was thrilled with Amy B. Martin’s performance and hope you will be too.

From a turn-of-the-century Irish maid to a World War II hero, Amy has done an impressive job of bringing all of the characters in this poignant tale to life. Here is a quick sample of Maisy’s Mirror on audiobook. I hope you enjoy this production and I’d love to hear your feedback.

Falling in Love with a Hero

Falling in Love with a Hero

Thunder on the Mountain

When I begin writing a book, I find someone whose looks I like and keep their photo front-and-center as I get familiar with the character. This is a photo of Scott Eastwood, son of Clint, and he looks just like I imagine my current hero to look.

In my third book of the Thunder on the Mountain Series, Thunder Storm, there was a young man that I completely fell in love with. I was so enamored with the character of the adolescent Runner Jeffries, son of Miles and Jeni Jeffries, that I wanted him to have his own book.

He’s all grown up now and is a major league baseball player, and if I thought I loved him as a kid, I am totally in love with him now that he’s an adult. And Charlotte Rose, daughter of Jack and Callie (Thunder Snow) (she first showed up in Thunder Struck), is his love interest. She loved him when she was four, and she’s still in love with him, but now it’s a different kind of love – all mature and grown up and stuff ;).

I can’t wait to tell you their story, which I project will be available in August of 2017. Be sure to sign up on the right side of this post and I’ll let you know when their story is ready to be shared.

How Writing and Pregnancy are Alike

How Writing and Pregnancy are Alike

15 ways writing a book is like pregnancy

It has been a while since I wrote a book. Life gets in the way, and I decided at the beginning of the year that I wanted to start writing again. After many months of the process, MAISY’S MIRROR is finally available!!

When the after effects of publishing hit me, it felt a lot like postpartum depression, and I got to thinking that writing had similarities to pregnancy. Here are some comparisons that came to mind. Feel free to add to them!

  1. They both take about nine months (give or take)writing and pregnancy
  2. You put on pounds as you get closer to delivery (goes along with #9)
  3. Shortness of breath (from exciting storylines)
  4. You don’t want to get dressed (you can spend days in your bathrobe)
  5. Exhausted (because you never move and see #6)
  6. Can’t sleep through the night (ideas and scenes running through your mind)
  7. Headaches/lower backache (from sitting too long)
  8. Mood swings (tears, laughter)
  9. Destroys your eating plans (going for hours without moving)
  10. More assertive (especially as your characters get more intense)
  11. Not interested in anything else
  12. Wondering if it will arrive on time
  13. There’s a hard push at the end
  14. The end is fast and furious
  15. Postpartum depression (you say goodbye to people you’ve known intimately for months)

If I Had My Life to Live Over

If I Had My Life to Live Over

If I Had My Life to Live Over

Mimi Foster 1967Since the beginning of life, people have found (hopefully) that with age comes wisdom. I am in the process of moving from the home that my mother shared with us the last five years of her life. I am sorting and packing and tossing and decluttering and remembering. There have been fond memories and tears produced from many of the photos and memorabilia that have passed through my aging hands over the past few weeks.

Erma Bombeck was a gentle humorist who was popular in my younger years and wrote a daily column for national distribution to newspapers. I found this reflection tucked in a book. It was one that always struck a chord with me, and was a perfect reminder.

If I had my life to live over, I would have talked less and listened more.
I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained and the sofa faded.
I would have eaten popcorn in the “good” living room and worried much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.
I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.
I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.
I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.
I would have sat on the lawn with my children and not worried about grass stains.
I would have cried and laughed less while watching television – and more while watching life.
I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.
I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren’t there for the day.
I would never have bought anything just because it was practical, wouldn’t show soil, or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I’d have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was my only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.
When my child kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, “Later. Now go get washed up for dinner.”
There would have been more I love yous . . . more I’m sorrys . . . but mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute . . . look at it and really see it . . . live it . . . and never give it back.

From horses to dogs, there was Thunder

From horses to dogs, there was Thunder

Willow’s protective Irish Wolfhound

Thunder in Willow's Secret Mimi FosterAfter I started writing Willow’s Secret, I stopped for a while to tell the story of her parents (Jordan’s Gift), because I thought it was an important part of Willow’s tale. In Jordan’s Gift, we find out where the name Thunder came from, and why Jordan and Edward named their daughter Willow.

In keeping with the tradition, when Willow received an Irish Wolfhound when she was a girl, she named him Thunder. He is admirably protective, except he has the same weakness as our heroine . . . he’s pretty devoted to our hero, Charles. Thunder and Willow grow up together through good times and bad in this poignant adventure you won’t want to miss.

This is what I imagined the very-loveable Thunder to look like.
