Hello, my name is Chris Cannon. I’m a speech therapist by day, and an author who
writes shape-shifting dragons by night. The Going Down In
Flames series is about Bryn McKenna, a sixteen-year-old girl who finds
out she’s a shape-shifting dragon when flames shoot out of her mouth for the
first time. (Surprise!)
Bryn is forced to Read More...
I remember the first time I visited Las Vegas – striding down the ramp and out
into the terminal, eager to pick up my bags and head out for my hotel. It was
like any other airport I'd visited, noisy and filled with commuters racing to
catch their flights or grab their luggage and head out into the city.
But this wasn't any other airport. Right beside the luggage carousel sat rows of
slot Read More...
The room where it happens...keep it lit or fade to black?
In her renowned 1975 novel, FOREVER, Judy Blume took
teens Katherine and Michael from first meeting to first kiss, first base to
second, second to third. Then with the lights still shining bright and no doubt
the rapt attention of each young reader, Katherine and Michael had their first
sexual experience together--no Read More...
Until I wrote a historical novel set where I lived nearly all my life, I didn’t
really know the place. My latest novel, WHEN WATER WAS EVERYWHERE,
explores the lives of a Los Angeles landowner, an immigrant, a young Indian
woman, and a Spanish priest during the 1840s when Alta California was a Mexican
I had suspected that the landscape was vastly different Read More...
I can’t be the only one who finds Sheldon Cooper from the hit show The Big Bang Theory
kinda sexy, can I? While I generally find the behavior of the sitcom’s genius
main character infuriating, his social ineptitude—particularly in the romance
department—is also endearing. We forgive him the irritating speeches because we
know he just doesn’t get it (‘it Read More...
Across genre! However, be assured there’s a love story in all Laura Spinella
novels—hotter love stories in my L. J. Wilson Clairmont Series Novels. But today
I’d love to chat about Unstrung, my newest book baby—women’s fiction
with a serious crush on romance.
I’m the something for everybody author—unless you’re totally opposed to finding
a love story in your Read More...
Thank you so much for hosting me to talk about my recent release, UNEXPECTEDLY HERS. Fans of
the Sterling Canyon
series have already met Emma Duffy--the shy, conservative innkeeper and
supportive friend. What they didn’t know is that she’s also secretly written an
erotica romance (Steep and Deep) under a Read More...
Like most authors, I get frequent questions about how much of myself is in my
books, and I always have to think about how to answer.
On the one hand, I include quite a bit based on personal experience. For
instance, I truly believe our animal companions can understand a lot about what
we think, which is why, in A
WEE HOMICIDE IN THE HOTEL Read More...
2016 was a year of changes in my life. We closed a business, moved house, and my
first book, this one, was prepared for publication. All three changes required a
lot of work, but in the end they all worked out well. Rising to the challenges
involved was worth the effort.
For Rosco and Kitty, in TANGLING WITH THE LONDON
TYCOON, the challenges they encounter Read More...
I’m fascinated by criminal profilers, like the heroine of my Profiler series,
Evelyn Baine. She can go to a crime scene where there’s no obvious motivation,
no promising suspects, and no useful forensics, and still tell law enforcement
officers what kind of person they’re looking for – and how to find him.
Why? Because she can get into the mind of Read More...
What? The “bad girl” in book two is the heroine of book three?
Are you serious? That late-to-work, doesn’t-give-a-hoot smart mouth? Her? The
one we wished would take a permanent hike, and—she’s baaaack?
It’s a Stretch
Though we applaud ourselves for Read More...
I love fairy tales. As you might have guessed since the books in my Bachelor Auction
series are all loosely based on them. :-) But really, some of my best memories
including my mother, sister and I sitting on the couch while she read The Boy
Who Cried Wolf and Billy Goat Gruff to us. *sigh* Those were great
times Read More...
