Catching in the major leagues is extremely demanding, both physically and
mentally. Injuries over the course of the seasons are a norm; there is always
some part of their body ailing. They wear a lot of protective gear, but it
doesn’t cover everything, and throughout the course of the seasons, something
will be hit, either by a bat or by the ball. There’s also the toll of
repeatedly getting in and out of Read More...
I remember the one criticism that stood out among others for my first romance was
that it was ‘unbelievable’ (I got the story from my university readers – all based on
real life). But my friend Gabrielle said, “You haven’t done your job as an author if
you don’t make the reader suspend disbelief.”
It was a lesson that stayed with me. Never again would I have that complaint from
reviewers or readers. Then Read More...
Have you ever told a little white lie only to have it snowball into an epic, life-
altering avalanche? No?
I have a friend who confessed her white lie to me once. She said it haunts her to
this day. She and her two sisters were raised by a single mom. Money was always
scarce. On her 8th birthday, there was no money at all. Her mother made cream of
mushroom soup for her birthday Read More...
5. Stephanie Plum
Series by Janet Evanovich – I have to credit Janet Evanovich with one of the reasons I
became a writer. If I hadn’t gotten so frustrated at Stephanie’s inability to choose between
Morelli and Ranger, I’d never have decided to write my own. This series is fun and humorous with
two sexy alpha guys Read More...

Wrath Mystery series with MINT COOKIE MURDER on sale June 30th, and The

Once upon a time, travel was my answer to my problem. It was the adult version of
running away from home…
First I would catch a flight to some foreign country. When I arrived at my
destination, I’d haul out a travel guide to locate inexpensive hotels, hostels, or
B & Bs. Twice I even stayed in people’s houses, with total strangers in Amsterdam!
In all honesty, I wouldn’t even consider doing that Read More...
I've traveled to a number of states, but I'm a New Englander at heart. So when
I joined the team of authors writing the Danger
Cove Mysteries, set in the Pacific Northwest (PNW), I knew I was going
to have to research the area's history and climate and geography, but that was
just the beginning.
My first Read More...
Hi there, I’m excited to be back here at Fresh Fiction today celebrating my
release of DRESSED TO KILL, Book 4 of the Tourist Trap
Mystery series. And like my affection for dive bars, I adore the little
tourist trap towns that survive on the tourist trade from Read More...
Since I’m born and bred in Oklahoma, Cowboys are a bit of a natural occurrence in my
neck of the woods. Wranglers that hug fine manly hips, boots that thud as they stride
purposely around, and those heavenly plaid shirts that cut their lean figures in a
sexy silhouette against the sunset while they’re working the land. Yes…those kind of
cowboys are my kind of men. Now cowboys don’t always have Read More...
When we came up with the idea to write the Backstage
Pass series, I knew right off the bat I wanted to write a diverse
character. I’d previously written diverse secondary characters, but had never had
a diverse main character. Sometimes the thought of writing outside what you know,
is kind of scary. You want to make sure that you Read More...
A lot of authors say music inspires them . . . well, I’m definitely in that boat!
When I write (especially, when it’s a more dramatic scene), there must be music
playing through my desk speakers. Not just anything either, I’m picky. Very picky.
On my playlists, the music ranges from Frank Sinatra to Siouxsie and the Banshees!
As a matter of fact, there’s music playing now—Nik Kershaw’s song, Wouldn’t Read More...
When you read my books, you’ll quickly discover that I’m an inspirational
novelist. I don’t hide the fact nor am I ashamed of it. God is central to my
themes because He’s central to my life. I could no more take God out of my
writing than my dog Teddy could take chasing squirrels out of his DNA.
Having said that, my goal when writing is not to preach to my Read More...
