Elevator Girl


ElevatorGirl_4.23What?! You’ve never heard of my book?

No worries! I’m a new Minnesota author!

Here’s the back cover book blurb:

Lisa Johnston never thought that she’d have to see her high-school nemesis again. Ever.

It’s not like she never thought about running into Jake Hanson, but those fantasies usually involved her running to catch a plane with a golf-pro hubby or meeting up with Oprah to save the children in Africa. But definitely not in an elevator on the way to work.

She’s willing to pass it off as minor coincidence until Jake is assigned to work with her foundation’s park project—Lisa’s park project. Nevertheless, she’s determined not to let Jake undermine how far she’s come in ten years. But his apparent attraction toward her is as bothersome as it is puzzling. Then she realizes . . . Jake has no clue who she is.

Check out this very nice endorsement for Elevator Girl from New York Times Bestselling Author William Kent Krueger! (Fun Fact: Kent’s new book, Windigo Island releases TODAY! He will be in my childhood hometown, Nisswa, MN on August 20th.)

“Elevator Girl is a savvy and sensitive look at relationships in our complex, modern world.  An enjoyable chronicle filled with moments both torturous and tender, it’s sure to strike familiar chords in anyone who’s tried to navigate the stormy sea of love.  Fans of Bridget Jones’s Diary or the works of Sophie Kinsella will be well pleased with this gem from debut author Kim Hruba.”  – William Kent Krueger, New York Times bestselling author of Ordinary Grace

I’m pretty excited about this book, not just because of the story, but because of the process. Living in a small community, I see the value of shopping locally, and as an artist, appreciate working with local people and other artists.

Leaving Your Legacy: An Introductory Workbook to Property Succession


This workbook gives you the opportunity to explore your ideas and options for a property succession plan. You will record your own thoughts and vision – including the current operating costs and responsibilities involving your property– learn about some property ownership options, and finally, consider how you want to take the next step in your property succession plan.

Already have a property succession plan in place? You can still use this workbook as a place to record your thoughts and wishes, as well as to share any information about the property that will be useful for the next generation of owners. Any information you can provide, will give your family better clarity and understanding of your vision.

If you’re the relative or child, this workbook can be a useful tool for understanding your relative or parent’s vision – and help you articulate your own.
