  1. Hi Ms. Rustand!

    I just finished re-reading a couple of your titles and enjoyed them (again) so much. I saw your blogspot address at the end of the book and decided to stop in for a few minutes. I’m glad I did; I enjoyed reading about your real life escapades, seeing vacation photos and even a couple of the family critters that made their way into some of your books (critter…Kentucky dialect for furry friends, perticularly of the wild variety that make their way into the family). ;o)

    I look forward to your next novel and hopefully (prayerfully), you will see one of mine in a bookstore someday! :o)

    Blessings to you,


    • Thank you for your lovely note. I’m so glad that you stopped by, and hope you will be back again! Best wishes to you on your own writing! Let me know how every thing goes for you, and when you have a book for sale. I will be sure to look for it!


  2. Hi Roxanne!
    Beautiful pictures! I am happy to see you have new books I haven’t read yet. I am looking forward to reading another book of yours….you have yet to write a book that isn’t great! Your cousin, Tammy
