In my new southern contemporary romance, FACING THE MUSIC, my
heroine Ivy Hudson has to face a very scary eventuality – returning to her
hometown after six years away. After landing a record deal and running off to
California, Ivy has toured the world, played Madison Square Gardens...but she
hasn’t had to face the people she left behind, including her ex, Blake.
At the Read More...
Architects are special creatures. They are cut from a cloth that's all their
own, and lumping them in with businessmen, doctors, or lawyers is to miss the
nuances that make architects so fascinating.
In all things, they balance art and science, instinct and creativity. They tend
to be highly articulate and attend to fine details, and bring deliberate thought
to all of their decisions, and those are delightful quirks.
Here are a few more Read More...
Have you ever lived somewhere that seriously influenced your life? A place that
gave you a different perspective on the world as you know it? What I’ve found is
that each place I’ve lived has somehow changed my world view.
I grew up in Iowa. We didn’t live in the largest city in the state, but I grew
up believing we were the most cosmopolitan utopia ever. I was rudely divested of Read More...
Ever since I was given the amazing opportunity to write a Pride &
Prejudice modern respin (DEFINITELY,
MAYBE IN LOVE), I’ve been jumping at the chance to respin another Jane
Austen. Though nothing can touch P&P, I’ve always had a major soft spot for
Persuasion. I love a good “second chances” story, and there isn Read More...
This month we’ve all seen—and possibly worn—pink ribbons. Pink ribbons that
announce we support the many people who’ve been affected by breast cancer.
Because awareness, money, research and preventative care are the ways we fight a
disease that impacts the 220,000 women and 2150 men diagnosed with breast cancer
each year (according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation).
While writing Read More...
Ever heard the phrase “I’m having a bad hair day?” Of course you have. And we
all know exactly what it means! But if you happen to have the supernatural gift
of prehensile hair (the ability to manipulate, quickly grow, and attack with
your hair), that phrase can take on a whole new meaning. Personally I’d rather
not have a coiffeur that might kill my husband if he mentions my mane needs a Read More...
Because I like to analyze and title just about everything (neurotic
reader/writer that I am), I’ve analyzed and labeled each of the various, yummy
types of men that make us swoon, giggle, and want to leap through the page,
punch out the heroine, and take her place. As an alpha-loving girl, you'll find
my favorite leading men tend to lean toward the aggressive type. Sorry, beta
girls. Still, I think there Read More...
My wardrobe doesn’t get a lot of attention. Being a writer barely requires me to
wear clothes at all, much less nice ones, but I have fun dressing my characters.
An item of clothing or an accessory can speak volumes about the person wearing it.
My friend C, on the other hand, is very fashionable. Her enthusiasm reaches a
pinnacle when it comes to purses. She’s the proud owner of a number of Read More...
The Duke and Duchess of Bucklynde have gone to the party as their former selves.
No longer the ton's elite, they've become a simple seaman and his seamstress
wife. Though Radley's added an eyepatch and pirate scowl for good measure!
Wendy Drew has dressed up as a seamstress complete with pins in her skirt and
ribbons dangling everywhere. The dress is a mess. It's one she stitched at the
height of Read More...
OFF KILTER is the
first book in the Highlands Mystery Series. It was great fun to write.
I especially loved my research in the Highlands. All that local color – men in
kilts, that wonderful lilting Scottish accent, the quick wit and infectious
sense of humor displayed by the Scots. Did I mention men in kilts? And the
setting was spectacular! Munros Read More...
