Lindsay McKenna is Helping to Send Books to the Military for the Holidays

Navy Vet and Author Lindsay McKenna

Please join me in welcoming New York Times Bestselling author Lindsay McKenna. Lindsay and I are Romvet sisters–we’ve both served in the U.S. Navy. Along with sister Romvet Delores Fossen, we’re celebrating the release of Coming Home for Christmas, our anthology from Harlequin Books.

Lindsay was a Weather Forecaster, AG3, from 1964-1967. You’ll meet no one more proud of her service than Lindsay. She also happens to be a wonderful writer who is credited with pioneering the military romance genre.

Lindsay and her husband Dave (and their dog Cody) enjoy New Year’s Day in Arizona. One of Lindsay’s favorites is her Pina Colada Cake, which looks like a winner!

Do you still have a military connection, Lindsay?

I work with Operation Gratitude, a nonprofit charity, that sends boxes overseas to military personnel and donate to them monthly.

You’ll find Lindsay at the usual places. Her photos are worth the extra clicks!

Thank you so much for joining us today, Lindsay, and for helping me to send books to the military for the holidays.

  1. Geri
    So glad to be over here supporting you! I urge my readers to sign up for YOUR newsletter. Being a sister Navy vet, and a wonderful writer of military romance, I think my readers would enjoy your books! Warmly, Lindsay McKenna

  2. Thank cake looks delicious! I’m going to try it for my hubby. He’s a pina colada guy (married to me, who is more of a martini-with-extra-olives gal. We balance out.)

  3. This recipe sounds delicious!! I love your books so much. Both my brother and sister are retired from the Navy and my sister’s husband too. I think that’s why I love your books so much. Thanks for all you do for our military.
