Love in Bloom, A Novel by Kathryn B Johnson

This November I started a Novel entitled Love in Bloom. I made my word count, and now I’m continuing on with the story, editing, etc., Here’s a glimpse of my 2023 Nano excursion.


As the sun dipped lower in the sky, casting long shadows beneath the ancient oak tree, Emma and Alex found themselves standing hand in hand. The town square was a hub of festivity, filled with laughter, music, and the tantalizing aroma of festival treats.

Emma’s heart swelled with gratitude for Alex’s understanding and support. Their love, like the ancient oak, had weathered storms and witnessed the changing seasons, yet it stood strong, its roots intertwined, and its branches reaching toward the future.

With a tender smile, Alex leaned in and whispered, “Our love, like this town and this tree, is enduring and adaptable. It can weather any storm and continue to grow.”

Emma’s eyes sparkled with love and determination. “Our love is like the Extravaganza, a beautiful mix of tradition and the excitement of the unknown. I’m grateful to share this journey with you.”

Their connection, a testament to the strength of love, grew beneath the ancient oak tree, as they celebrated the traditions of Willowbrook while embracing the adventure that awaited them.
