Dreams and psychic connections
become reality
 in this fantasy romance. First in the
series.

Single mom Dana Carapelli wakes up in a parallel world called the Dreaming for the first time the night before she meets a handsome rancher. Soon after she wakes into the Dreaming again and finds that she is on his ranch. He knows all about the Dreaming because he wakes up there every time he falls asleep. When he tests their telepathy link she passes, plunging her into a psychic link with him. He admits that he has been promised a perfect partner for him and his teenage son, but doesn’t know if it’s her. Family and friends caution her to take it slow and that’s without her telling them what she knows will make them sound crazy. Joe is everything her dead husband wasn’t. What if it’s her turn to be happy? What if it’s real?

Start the journey into this fantasy romance today!

Thanks for watching!

Tina Griffith

I was born in Germany, a little more than 60 years ago. My family came to Canada when I was of school age, and I’ve been here ever since. When my kids were little, I wrote 27 children’s books, worked in television and radio, and worked as a professional clown at the Children’s Hospital. After my husband of 25 years passed away, I began to write romance novels as a way to keep the love inside of my heart. I now have 11 romance novels for sale in the amazon bookstore, and while all of them have undertones of a love story, they have different genres; murder, mystery, whimsical, witches, ghosts, suspense, adventure, and my sister’s scary biography. ‘The Elusive Mr. Velucci’ is nothing short of a very romance love story, where nobody dies, but it will bring a lump to your throat as you continue to wish that Enrico and Sadie find each other again.

Trader Joe’s Grocery Haul July 2019 *New Items* + Gluten-Free, Plant-Based Meal Ideas

Tasty new items in the store and a seasonal return, plus meal ideas that won’t keep you in front of a hot stove.

I love pairing a character from one of my Natural Gifts series with a food video. The character who would most like this shopping haul is Lucy from Desert Sunrise. She’s a career woman who doesn’t always have time to devote to healthy meals. Not to mention that she’s attracted the attention of the Sunny Skies Stables foreman and, shall we say, is spending as much time as she can with him? Wink.

About Desert Sunrise:

Life is good for Lucy Shannon. Love will be too, when the man she knows is out there for her finally shows up. Until then she is going to enjoy herself. So what if her ex-fiancé tossed her heart into a blender? Years of therapy have put that in perspective. 

Stan Spellman doesn’t think like her. Not in the least. Sure, life is good. He does what he loves every day, spends a pleasurable night with a woman when he wants to. Love? Happily ever after? He’s seen the rare occurrence of it. That’s as far as his thinking on the subject goes. 

They’re both scheduled for a wake-up call that will change their lives forever, fulfilling dreams they never knew they had.

Lucy and Stan also made a recipe for dairy-free beer cheese soup, which you can find by clicking here.

Thank you for watching with me!

Sprouts Chip Haul June 2019 (Gluten-Free, Plant-Based)

Sprouts Farmers Markets brought out 11 new chip varieties! I chose the ones that are gluten-free and plant-based because I feel best when I eat that way. I purchased all the chips and am not affiliated with Sprouts other than as an appreciative shopper. My opinions are my own.

I had a great time trying these chips and sharing my thoughts with you. If you’re looking for more gluten-free, non-dairy snacks I have an Urthbox Unboxing Video that will show you more. Lots of variety there!

Now that you have plenty of snacks here’s a fantasy romance that foodies will enjoy. It’s Jason and Lina’s story in No Yesterdays. He would heartily approve of the chips in the video because he doesn’t have the time or the patience for cooking.

No Yesterdays is about four couples.

Brittany has shy down to an art. Maybe she needs a push. It’s been years already!


Jack is stubborn personified. Push, push, push.


Jason is having the time of his life in college. All those beautiful women. Ha ha. Not the plan.


Rowan is convinced that his soulmate didn’t incarnate with him in this lifetime. Surprise!

Forget slow and steady, fate has plans for these four couples!

There’s no looking back now.

There are No Yesterdays.

Behind the scenes of Ch. 15

Whew, that was fun! Which snack looked the tastiest to you? Have you tried any of these? I love to talk about food!

Thank you for the time we spend together!

Saving It All Pt. 12|Sci-Fi Romance Video Short Story

Start with parts 1-11 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Jf8PaCYAQE&list=PLsyCFecRhPx0b4snlMltynBu9KaSVUvmc

“Saving It All” is a second-chance-at-love dystopian sci-fi romance video short story series.

It’s not looking good for Ariel and Hagrid’s marriage and that’s bad news for everyone because the all mentioned in the title is humanity.

It’s freaky in a good way.

Why did I turn a short story into a video series? I did it for love. The love of writing and making videos.

I bet it won’t surprise you to know that I grew up watching Twilight Zone and Outer Limits. There were episodes that touched on romance, but they weren’t the focus of the story. I want more romance with my sci-fi, and that’s part of how this story came about. The rest of it came from my muse who asked, “What would happen if…?” The answers included alternate timelines, testing the strained bond between the couple, and a life lesson we can all identify with.

Are you reading an interesting sci-fi romance? Tell me about your favorites so I can check them out. I’m always up for an enthralling tale.
