A New Series, A Party, and Some South Pacific Islands

by | Sep 22, 2022 | Uncategorized | 1 comment

Some exciting things are brewing ahead in some fictional South Pacific Islands—the Suamalie Islands! I am excited to be a part of a group of authors setting sail for beautiful islands.

I want you to find out more about these islands and the characters. Please join the Independence and Suamalie Islands Reader Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/453666000149709 and join the conversation.


The series will be expand over three years. We will start with a PARTY! On September 28 and 29. Join in the fun and prizes https://www.facebook.com/groups/453666000149709. Each author will have a 30 minute slot with a variety of posts. (I won’t tell you when I’m posting so that you will have the chance to meet many of the authors!)



My first novel will release in June 2023. Room for Love was such fun to research and write. Here’s the book synopsis:

Amy Lee owns a B & B on Alexandre Island, a legacy she started with her now-deceased husband. As she waves goodbye to her college age son, her life embraces emptiness and loneliness. God gave her peace once. Would He share it again? An after-school program for local children and a renewed interest in painting shelters her from the shadows. The arrival of a professor of archeology shakes her world, making her yearn for the way things were a few months ago.

Walker Standish escapes his university professor job on a six-month sabbatical. His grown children try unsuccessfully to convince him of his folly. His heart on the mend from his wife’s passing jerks to life when he finds more than a room at a B & B.

Where an ocean meets the shore, love has room for one more.

You can now preorder the first book in Celebrate Lit’s new Suamalie Series, Under the Hibiscus by Author Chautona Havig! Get the paperback copy for 30% off with free shipping or the ebook copy for only $.99!
