My interest in wolves was not so much in their physical details, though those are amazing (did you know wolves can smell something a mile away and hear something 6 miles away in the forest or 10 miles away in the open?) I have always been more interested in details about social structure. For example, subordinate wolves often try to bring peace to the pack after a fight between dominants. The more violent the fight, the harder the subordinates...

I admit it, I am a pop culture binger. As an author, I’m pretty focused, so I don’t allow myself many distractions when I’m in work mode, but in between projects…watch out, I’m watching! There are a couple shows I do make time for during the week because I have to watch in real time. I can’t stand to be left out. This Is Us I have watched, and bawled, weekly since episode one. I love my hour with the Pearson famil...

I’ve always been a plot-oriented writer–which can be good news or bad. Fortunately, the idea for BEYOND DANGER, book #2 of my Texas Trilogy, came to me while I was working on book #1. Beau Reese, co-owner of Texas American Enterprises, is black-haired, blue-eyed, and sexy as hell. He was once a highly successful race car driver, sort of a Texas Paul Newman. Beau loves fast cars and fast women. He is also wanted for murder. Private ...

Writers all get their start as avid readers, and most of us never stop devouring books. One of the coolest benefits of being an author is getting the inside scoop about upcoming books. So, I want to share with you some of the books that have just released within the past month – or are coming soon – that I’ve already read and loved, or can’t wait to get my hands on! Here are those books – and a secret look behind the scenes from each author! (...

If you have people in your life who aren’t huge fiction readers (why are you doing this to yourself), then you may find them rolling their eyes when you share some insight into life that you gleaned from a book. However, throughout my reading life, I’ve found myself taking away profound words of wisdom from some of my favorite characters. Today I wanted to share some words of wisdom from THE DATING DEBATE because, sometimes, fictio...

He doesn’t always have to be the hero. I love when the hero’s there to help when he’s needed, but he also knows when to step back and trust that his love can handle the situation. It’s great getting rescued and all, but sometimes it’s more fun to be the one to rescue him. He’s shy. Confidence is hot, sure, but I have a soft spot for a rough and tough guy who gets a bit tongue-tied in the presence of his crus...

Those who know me, know I am not a plotter. Not even just a little. I have some hardcore plotter friends and I’m always impressed with their color coded documents and the ease with which they fill out those conflict worksheets. And though there’s a part of me who will always wonder, “But how do you know that happens in Chapter Six?” I’m always a tad bit jealous of my plotting peers. I promise, I’ve tried to ...

Guess why I love March? I’m a Shakespeare addict and I get to go around warning everyone to “Beware the Ides of March” I’m a trivia nut and I love telling people that the Ides of March is March 15. I’m a huge basketball nut and March Madness is sacred in my house It’s the month when we get flashes of the spring to come. And wow, do I long for spring. Alpha Unleashed comes out on March 6 and I get to celebrat...

Thank you so much for having me on the Fresh Fiction blog. I’m thrilled to be here to talk to readers about the first book, A FAMILY FOR THE RANCHER, in my new series, Cowboys to Grooms, with Harlequin Western Romance. I love cowboys—specifically the horse-riding, boot-wearing, yeehawing type, not the football-playing type. So when I had a dream a couple of years ago about five brothers who worked a ranch in Montana with their dad, I knew I ha...

Harry Hunsicker – local Dallas mystery author
Guests / May 16, 2005

Harry is a local Dallas author with a debut mystery out this month from Minotaur. You’ve got to be at least intrigued by his protagonist name — after all, Oswald is such a “Dallas” name. Still Water has been highly recommended by the local community leader for the Dallas Barnes and Noble and a local mystery readers group. Anyone read it yet? ~sara Visit FreshFiction.com to learn more about books and authors.

Monday Musings, or stuff to do this week
Guests / May 16, 2005

After downing two nice mugs of wonderful Central Market java, I’m ready to face the week. And for me, that means the infamous, demanding, annoying, but necessary TO DO list! So, what will we be doing this week? Posting a ton (well, it feels that way) of reviews for June books. Publishing our weekly newsletter on Tuesday. Adding the books from the two big mystery confabs — the Agathas and the Edgars. Adding comments (would...

Here I am!
Guests / May 16, 2005

I made it! I am ready to post and add comments! What am I reading… Actually I just finished a great book called Lamb: The Gospel According to Christ’s Childhood Pal Biff by Christopher Moore. It was a fun and wacky look at the years of Christ between 6 yrs. old and 35ish, the “missing years” from the bible. You follow Biff and Josh (Jesus) through their young adulthood while they discover the mysteries of sin,...

I made it!
Guests / May 15, 2005

Well, I made it, and I’m currently reading Snowed In by Christina Bartolomeo(hopefully I spelled that right, as I don’t have the book by me) It’s not what I would consider romance, though that’s the way it was billed. I would consider it more a piece of women’s fiction. It’s my first read by this author, and I’m not yet finished, so haevn’t formed a complete opinion. Sandi Visit FreshFi...

In this one, Brenna Lyons is telling two stories in one as well. I’ve only read a few o...

Stroll down memory lane
Guests / May 15, 2005

On a recent “TRASH” trip to St. Louis, I managed to pick up books by two of my childhood — well, young girl in the 60s/70s — favorites: Jane Aiken Hodge and Mary Stewart. Not only did it bring back memories of reading in a sun warmed room, or dusty hideaway, but also memories of adventure outside the farming community I lived. Mary Stewart brought a sophisticated international world into existence for me, espe...

Gothic, suspense and fantasy
Guests / May 14, 2005

To be very honest, I’ve never kept a reading journal as I never saw the point. I remember the good of what I’ve read and if a book has me pondering, well, then I might reread it or not. Reading has and I hope always will be entertainment and not a vessel of confounded thinking. But I digress, I think I’m supposed to note books I’ve read since last posting, uh, that would be yesterday’s readings. Yes, the...

Reading for a surgery center
Guests / May 13, 2005

Yup, time to spend the day in the surgery center, waiting for my husband’s treatment to be finished, and nothing much to do except watch a really lame series of programs on the television which I’d normally never be exposed. Now, I can sit in suspension while wondering how people can handle that pap, but I’ve learned over the years that the boob tube does seem to have a mesmerizing hold on millions, something I̵...

Book Signing — Mary Kay Andrews
Guests / May 12, 2005

The thing I like about a book signing when you go with someone else you make it into an “event” by always combining with food. Or drinks. I can do drinks too. But the best part is the anticipation. M and I were the only ones who could make it to the Mary Kay Andrews (MKA) signing last night in Plano, but we had a blast. MKA is delightful in person and we learned all the secrets of a best selling book– I’d be h...
