Get to Know Your Favorite Authors
I always got great compliments on my SEAL
Brotherhood covers. When I first published my stories, there were only
a handful of authors who primarily wrote SEAL heroes. Being someone who loves
color, I was thrilled in those early days with these bright and beautiful
pictures and the hunky torsos “wet and dry”.
But things change. I didn’t foresee that Read More...
Hundreds of women were spies on both sides of the Civil War. Below you’ll find
bios of five of the most famous of them.
1. Belle Boyd, spy for the Confederacy
As a 17-year-old living with her prominent slaveholding family in West Virginia,
Belle Boyd was arrested for shooting a Union soldier who had broken into her
family’s home and insulted her mother. After she was cleared of all Read More...
We all have our secret list of guilty pleasures, and I’m not just talking about
that hidden box of chocolate truffles and your DVR maxed out on The
Bachelor. I’ve often used my guilty pleasures to stir my creative juices
and get the writing flowing. It might be my mad-love for period dramas to craft
that romantic historical romance or in the case of my new Young Adult novel, it Read More...
5. Dance with a smithie
Known for their extremely large muscles and soul piercing eyes, smithies can be
alluring, but also quite hazardous. Especially to the finest cloth from Paris.
Their physique is largely due to all the time they spend working at the forge
over smoldering fires with heavy tools. This also lends a general air of dirt
and grime which can be hard to scrub out. Even when the boy wants Read More...

Millions of people dream of seeing their name on the cover of a bestseller. Most
never do anything about it, but you can be the exception. Anyone can put pencil
to paper, or finger to keyboard, but if you want to be a real writer, make sure
you’ve got plenty of what it takes to get started, keep going, and get right to
Of words, reading, and readers Read More...
We all have those types of books that are insta-buy. For me, I’m a huge fan of
any and all books that fall under the forbidden love umbrella. Enemies to
lovers? Sign me up! Any combination of best friend’s older brother/little
sister? So in! And, my personal favorite, the bodyguard.
With my newest release, PROTECTING FATE, I couldn’t Read More...
From as early as I can remember, animals have been a part of my life. We always
had a dog while I was growing up, as well as fish, guinea pigs, rabbits, and
later on, horses. Though having animals as a part of my family is natural to me,
I never realized just how many ways they enhanced my life. I love being a
full-time writer, and am often asked if I find it Read More...
You know how it is. You start dating this guy, and he’s nice. Well, nice enough.
And maybe you’re a people pleaser sort, who contorts herself to fit. And it
turns out that you’re pretty good at fitting with this guy and his liberal
philosophy on relationships, so much so that you decide that it’s your
philosophy too—and all that plus a little momentum and that’s how you find Read More...

Fans of tea – as well as newly converted tea drinkers – often ask me for tea
party ideas. Well, tea can pretty much be enjoyed anywhere, from a solo pot at
home, to tea shops and restaurants, to a chai latte on the go. But to stage an
actual tea party requires (to my thinking at least) that you start with a theme.
Consider for instance, a Book Club Tea. Here you could use bookmark-style Read More...
