So many fun things to do…
Reading, cooking, home renovation, writing, gardening and dancing…I have a few
hobbies. And, these only top the list of my interests. I’m not saying I have

grab a book or try a fun new Read More...
The middle of July in Arizona means it’s been steadily creeping over a hundred
degrees for the last two months. What better time to dive into a book that’s set

came immediately to mind because the words exactly Read More...

Thanks so much to Fresh Fiction for hosting me on the tour for RUNNING WILD: Havoc Book 1. This is the start of a
brand new series, with different heroes for each book and HEAs at the end of

I’ll start at the beginning. Before you can get a reader on the edge of their
seats, the reader must get to know, like, and sympathize with your character.
Let’s face it a nameless, faceless woman running from a killer sort of bores us.
It reaches high up there in the “so what?” category. Therefore step one in
writing suspense is to get the reader involved and invested in the character.

It was announced this morning during the NBC portion of the Television Critics
Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills, California that the network has
finally found the perfect Captain Hook for their second foray into live musical
performance. Christopher Walken
("Jersey Boys") will play Captain Hook for NBC's "Peter Pan," a live musical

reader who’d read TALL,
DARK, AND VAMPIRE (Dead in the City #1) was scratching their Read More...
Why do I write about shape-shifting dragons? I love all the possibilities
involved with supernatural/paranormal worlds. In GOING DOWN IN FLAMES, Bryn
learns she’s a shape- shifting dragon when flames shoot out of her mouth for the
first time. She’s immediately thrust into a new world she doesn’t understand.
Since I’m creating the world, I gave her a couple Read More...
