Poetry and Sex

When I think of Jack Drago in Circle of Defiance, I think of how different he is from all the other heroes in my books. He loves cats. In fact, owns a white one named Kinky. His best friend is a female (Marie from Circle of Danger), and strangely, considering how he falls in love with […]

Just Chillin’

Well, I say I’m just chilling, but really I’m writing and writing. With a lot of staring off into space wishing my brain would work faster. You know it’s kind of funny, when I wrote CIRCLE OF DANGER for Avon, I expected to have anxiety problems like most debut authors have with their second book. […]

Yep, Me Again

You probably have noticed I’ve been posting about ads lately. That’s part of my New Year’s resolution. I had decided to do more ads and less contests. No. An alien hasn’t taken over my body. After 21 years (first contest in 1994, skipped 5 years before 2nd one), this contest diva decided it was time […]

What do you think?

My latest ad.  It will be placed in the RWA magazine/book/program for the conference in New York. So can’t wait! The trip will be so much fun. I’ve never been there. Yes. I will probably be one of those tourist craning my neck at the tall buildings, getting in everyone’s way.  HA! Be sure to […]

What We Imagine

The other day, my oldest daughter was saying how she loved seeing what people imagine certain book heroes look like. So I thought I would share what I think Jack in CIRCLE OF DEFIANCE looks like. A combination of the two fellows in the top two pictures. Jack keeps his head shaved (his story will […]

All Paths Lead to Books

I usually avoid talking about the day job except for the occasional remarks about working overtime and it kicking my butt. But today I’m in the mood to talk in general about it. A few years ago, I started the current job after an old one sold out and moved away. Freaking stressful. See, I’ve […]

A Taste of A Book

I’ve been thinking about about placing some excerpts of my books on Goodreads, but a few things came to mind. A few years ago, Sherrilyn Kenyon told me not to use the first chapter as an excerpt because people will open the book and think they’ve read it. That is so true. If I want to […]

CIRCLE OF DEFIANCE – Scene 2

[For Scene 1: click here to read] “What are you doing here, sweetheart?” Jack needed her out of there quick. Even embarrassment hadn’t made her leave. The way her dark brown eyes examined every hard inch of him, he expected to explode any second. For the last week, while the blonde did some finishing touches […]
