Get to Know Your Favorite Authors
I love writing series. As a reader, you get to return to favorite characters and follow along as someone
new gets center stage. As a writer, you get much of the same fun – it’s hard to create a character, take
them on a 60-100,000 word journey and then just say goodbye. When it comes to romantic suspense,
it means throwing a new character not only into the limelight but also into trouble Read More...
A MERCIFUL SECRET is the
third book in my Mercy
Kilpatrick series about an FBI agent who was raised in rural Oregon by
survivalists. In SECRET, Mercy is caught up in two related murder investigations
hundreds of miles apart. Here's an interview with my heroine:
How would you describe yourself? Read More...
The main theme of my newly released YA/SciFi novel, THE VANISHING SPARK OF
DUSK, is to "Be Heard". While that mantra is primarily focused on my main
lead, Lark (who's naturally quiet and reserved), this theme is also geared
toward the romantic relationship in this story.
There are SO. MANY. BOOKS. out there. Thankfully they're starting to encourage
people to love and Read More...
When I first began writing historical fiction as a young girl, I was a blank
slate about petticoats, bum rolls, stays, jumps, busks, stockings and garters,
and whatnot. Fast forward many years and nine published novels later, and I'm
still learning with each novel I write, and have discovered that the best way to
dress my heroine is to dress myself.
I don't want to create heroines who dress in fashions and underpinnings Read More...
If any of you follow me on social media, you'll know I'm a bit of a paper
product junkie. I'm a diehard devotee to my paper planner, and I love setting
goals each year with a goal-setting workbook I have.
However, one of my newer loves is my reading journal. Like many of you, I keep
track of what I read in Goodreads. I love having a searchable list and
participating Read More...
Write, write, write. I plan to have two new wolf books and a jaguar book for
2018, need to figure out who and what. For the jaguar one, I want Howard, the
former Enforcer, who desperately needs a mate. I envision in him in the jungle,
where all big cats need to get away, and the Enforcer she-cat who is ready to
put him on her hitlist if he doesn't toe the line Read More...
Eagle went straight to the spare bedroom, wishing he had more hands available as
he struggled to pull back the blanket so he could lay the broken woman on the
mattress. She moaned softly as he pulled his arms free from underneath her. He
raced to the bathroom, grabbed towels and returned. With a warm wet washcloth,
he quickly dabbed her forehead, checking to see how severe the head wound was.
His military experience Read More...
SUMMER is a humorous southern romance mystery. Summer Butler returns to her
hometown in southern Alabama to star in a reality TV show as a PI, even though
her only experience is the amateur sleuth character she played on a hit TV show
when she was a teenager. Deadly Summer is the first book in Darling
Investigations, and releases Read More...
If you could invite any five characters (from books or movies or TV) to
dinner, who would they be and why?
It's impossible to pick only five fictional characters I could invite
to dinner. Would I fill my table with superheroes like Thor and Captain America
(for the view, obviously), or a more classic George Bailey, C.K Dexter Haven,
Rhett Butler trio? Fill each seat with TV characters who Read More...
I've always believed that to be passionate about something is a gift.
Personally, passions give me something to dream about, to look forward to, and
to pour my love, energy, and excitement into. The nature of some interests is to
evolve as we do, sometimes even disappearing entirely to make room for new ones
that fit into the different stages of our lives. Other things become essential
to us, a part of our very Read More...
Captain Lord Darington is accustomed to commanding his ship as a much renowned
and feared privateer. Who would have thought it would be on English soil that he
would be attacked by brigands and seriously wounded? Had it not been for the
lovely Miss Emma St. James he would be dead. Though he has always been more
comfortable in a naval battle than in a ballroom, he is determined to exert
himself and make a Read More...
