Car Lover

Yesterday, I had to drive through downtown Birmingham to avoid a horrible back up on the interstate. As I’m driving along, trying to avoid as many red lights as I can, low and behold what do I pass on the side of the street? A Maserati! I swear I physically got excited. Why I love […]

Celebrating an Anniversary With Giveaways!

Today is my Second Anniversary of my debut book, CIRCLE OF DESIRE! Last year, I totally forgot to celebrate, so I thought I would make up for it today. I’ve decided to give away more than one prize. 1) In CIRCLE OF DESIRE, who was Theo’s current mistress? The winner receives a $25 gift certificate […]

Writing A Real Book

The other day people were commenting (loop or Facebook) of how people they know and some strangers would come up to them and ask when they plan to write a real book. Or ask, why do they write filth? Really?   0~o  Huh? My books are real and have three-dimensional characters. Besides, why is good […]

Here Let Me Help You

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read a review (not mine) and become frustrated when an angry reviewer gives a novella one star because “It was too short.” You’re reading and that’s important. Obviously, you want to learn. So be sure to watch for certain words before you click on that FREE, $0.99 or […]

What Do You Know About History?

I love historical romances. Especially those set in the Middle Ages and the U.S. West in the 1800s. In fact, my first completed manuscript was set during the medieval times. And I have another one that has done well in contests (unpublished and uncompleted). Recently, I wrote the first couple chapters of a western. Just […]

Books Spoil Watching Television

I’ve noticed I’ve become picky about watching television. Partly, of course, because I rather be writing. Feels more productive some days. But mostly because television shows usually disappoint me. If they have romance in them at all, they drag it out, making the sexual tension so frustrating, I get to the point I scream at […]

Watching The Chronicles of Riddick AGAIN

I have The Chronicles of RIddick on DVD, but if I see it come on a TV station, I can’t resist. Love that movie. Two hunks I love to watch move, hear them talk, and see them kick ass. Vin Diesel and Karl Urban. But I have to say Karl is my favorite in the […]
