It was the holiday we’d been dreaming about for months. All through the gloomy
depths of winter we’d been working long hours, and hubby and I were stressed out
and longing for sunshine, cocktails, and relaxation. What could be better than a
ten-day break in the Whitsunday group of islands, off the tropical coast of

I know there are a few authors out there who can’t write to music and have to
have dead silence to work in, but I’m not one of them.
When I’m about to start a new project I always try and find a playlist. Either
on iTunes or YouTube and I cycle through listening to that playlist while I write.
Honestly, not even sure if I hear the words, but I can Read More...
When I look back at my earliest memories I remember the flicker of oil lamps
casting shadows on the wall of our home, our buggy, and wearing plain
remember when my dad drove our first car into the driveway—a green Nova with
lime colored carpet on the dash—we were leaving the Amish. And when my
mammie (grandma) visited from across the street and my mom told me
not to Read More...
Hi! I’m so happy to be back here, blogging at Fresh Fiction!
This is release week for my book, THE
FAKE FIANCEE. I probably had the most fun with the hero in this book,
He was also the most different of all my heroes. He’s a guy who’s always had
excel, skipped ahead in school, and Read More...
Story has been my deepest love since before I could read. And I was serious
about it. I watched Mary Poppins at five years old and thought the
of a carousel horse joining a real horse on a racetrack was insulting. I
expressed similar disdain when books violated reality. A mouse born to human
parents? A swan learning to read and write and play the trumpet? Ridiculous.
I wrote my first story Read More...

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

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...
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...
