Hi there – Abigail here! Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello! My life is a bit of a whirlwind right now. My emerg shifts at Brighton General are crazy busy, as you can imagine. Although truthfully, that’s nothing new and honestly, I don’t mind. I feel like I signed up for that when I chose emergency medicine. I have three really great friends who also work at the hospital and having someone to commiserate with lifts the burden. What’s really kept me hopping are renovations to my house. Yep, I bit the bullet and bought a house and after mulling over plans and nailing down the design decisions for close to two years, I was finally ready to leap into renos (or dip my toe in reluctantly). I thought I had another month or so before the crew was available, but they called and asked if they could push up the start date. The timing wasn’t ideal, but like I’d say no. haha

I’m also in the midst of planning a fundraiser for the emergency department. The hospital board finally agreed to replace the curtains around the beds with proper walls to protect patient privacy – something that’s long overdue – but it’s contingent on funding. I happen to be a serial fundraiser, so I couldn’t say no when they asked if I’d take it on. With a team of awesome volunteers, I’ve organized a black-tie dinner and dance, and I was hoping to have that over with before the renos started. No such luck. Oh well, what’s one more disruption in a sea of them. My to-do list just expanded tenfold – oh and *snaps fingers* I forgot, I still have to find a date for that night. Normally, it’d be the last thing I’d worry about, but in return for pitching in to support the fundraiser, my friends coerced me into promising I’d find a date. They know me too well. If I went solo, I’d be tempted to slink out quietly after the dinner and forgo the dance. Not happening. They made sure of it. Of course, it’s still on the list. Their goal is slightly stronger than mine to move it up and get it off the list. But we’ll see. I’ll keep you posted on how it all turns out! 😀 See you later!


Here’s a bit about Abigail’s story in Love and the Hidden Hockey Clues ~

Love and the Hidden Hockey Clues coverFollowing the clues and falling in love…

When she was younger, Dr. Abigail Clark dreamed of playing professional hockey, but the world wasn’t ready for a female player. That stung. She skated as far away from hockey as possible – until she lands a job in the emergency department of a hockey-crazy town and buys the house of the late beloved Zamboni driver. A tin box is discovered during the renovation of her new home, and Abigail brushes it off as a time capsule left by the previous owner – that is until someone tries to steal it. Turns out, the odd collection is more than just sentimental hockey memorabilia.

Abigail inadvertently embroils Del Braebury, captain of the local pro hockey team, into helping her sort it out. Her history with hockey players is rocky at best, but he comes in handy when she needs to access parts of the rink that are off limits. Del is happy to be tangled up in the clues of the hidden hockey loot. In the process of solving the mystery, he hopes to win Abigail’s heart!


Love and the Hidden Hockey Clues is up for pre-order. The big day is May 14! Can’t wait to share this story with you. Stayed tuned – tomorrow Del Braebury, captain of the Brighton Edge will be dropping by.
