Thankful Author- Liz Flaherty

Featuring Liz Flaherty

What I'm grateful for:

I am grateful for each new day—if you look hard enough, there’s an adventure in every one!


Liz retired from the post office and promised to spend at least fifteen minutes a day on housework. Not wanting to overdo things, she’s since pared that down to ten. She spends non-writing time sewing, quilting, and doing whatever else she wants to. She and Duane, her husband of…oh, quite a while, are the parents of three and grandparents of the Magnificent Seven. They live in the old farmhouse in Indiana they moved to in 1977. They’ve talked about moving, but really…37 years’ worth of stuff? It’s not happening! 
She’d love to hear from you at


The one that got away

Could Kate Rafael’s day get any worse? First she lost her job, then her house burned down and now her ex is back in town. Apparently, Ben McGuffey's taking a break from being a big-city doctor to help at his family’s tavern and reassess the choices he's made for his career.
Ben ends up giving Kate a hand...then giving her kisses...and finally, a second chance. But when a local teenager shows them both a glimpse of what it means to be a family, Ben wonders if having kids in small-town Vermont would clash with his ambitions. Or can he truly come home again…to Kate?



  1. Thanks for having me today. There's snow on the ground this morning, extending my gratitude some because I'm inside!

  2. 37 years in one house. I just moved after 10. Here's my advise if you ever decide to move. Strike a match to the sofa and run. You're always welcome here in the sunshine state.
    Good luck with BACK TO McGUFFEY'S.

    1. Thanks, Sandy! That sounds like a viable option!

  3. Hi Liz, thanks for being here. Golly, snow already! Perfect weather for staying inside warm and toasty and writing the day away. Good luck with your book.
