NEWS: 2013 marks my step deeper into Service. I am volunteering as President of the Los Angeles Romance Authors chapter of Romance Writers of America. Come visit!
January 20, 2013: I’ll be leading a workshop on Goal Setting for 2013 and beyond at the Los Angeles Romance Authors. And of course, guests are welcome!
March 2013: I’ll be giving a workshop at the SoCal RWA Conference on March 15 – 17, 2013 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Santa Ana. My workshop is called Your Story Begins at Home.
Update: July 16, 2012 DEMON HUNT is now available at Amazon!
Update: June 2, 2012 BLOOD DREAMS is now available at Amazon - only 99cents!
Update: March 15, 2012 DEMON SOUL has won an award at Reader Views Literary Awards! It has won in the Pacific West Division, and came in as an Honorable Mention in the Romance Category. Go HERE to see the entire list. (See the shiny sticker to the right? I get to put that on copies of my book!)
So, I am rightfully stoked about this…AND, I’ve heard from my editor that I can expect a JULY release for DEMON HUNT! WOO! Of course things could change, so I’ll keep you updated.
I’ve got an interview up at Night Owl Reviews ! They’re a terrific spot for news and reviews for romance books. Check them out if you haven’t!
UPDATE 2-7-12: I’ll be over at The Romance Studio February 10 – 14 for their big party and giveaway – check it out!
Update 1-23-12 - Just received a new review for DEMON SOUL from Just Between the Pages reviews - 4.5 Fairies!!! Go and read the full review by clicking on the rating. It just goes to show you – it’s NEVER too late to ask for a review!
Plus – another review just came in. Check it out at Reader Views - no stars or fairies, but an interesting review. She strongly notes that this is NOT for teens and I have to agree, totally.
UPDATE: January 20, 2012
Forgot to mention – I sent DEMON HUNT off to my editor last Sunday. She’s got a full plate, though, so it’ll be awhile before I get revisions which is good – that means I can work on Book 3, Justin and Maggie’s story!
UPDATE: January 18, 2012
I wanted to make this site dark today, to protest against SOPA but – I’m technically challenged. So I won’t be here, and I won’t be on the internet, and I won’t be shopping on the internet. I won’t be on Twitter, either. Sigh.
Let’s hope the stupid bill dies before it gets any further.
UPDATE: January 2012 Well, we made it! It’s a New Year. The first wine blog is up, the second book is almost to my editor, and I’ve got other projects lining up and raring to be written.
Here’s to a wonderfully productive 2012 for us all. Cheers!
UPDATE: Year-end, December 2011
As the year winds down to a close, I hope you can look back at your year with astonishment, pride, and joy. The tears and the heartaches will undoubtedly be there, too; but let the joy take precedence.
As you move into the new year, may you dust off your dreams that maybe you put away for awhile. Take them out, shake them up, and start living life the way you had always hoped to, for no matter how old you may be, its never too late to begin. (Thanks to the lovely Robena Grant for the inspiration!)
May your 2012 bring you light, love, laughter, peace, and joy, wherever you may go. Bright blessings to you, now and always!
12-18-11 I’m over at Avery Olive’s Blog today, as a part of her 13 days of Christmas give-away. Check it out!
UPDATE: 12-9-11 First off, a big ol’ HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Dad! He’s 83 years young today. Tomorrow the family descends upon him for lunch and cake and giving him lots of love.
Today I’m over at Flirty Author Bitches , talking about family dynamics and how the ability to put clothes in the correct dresser drawer tends to wane.
Also, RIGHT NOW there’s a giveaway going on – the 13 Days of Christmas! Go see Avery Olive for all the goodies and daily giveaways, plus a grand prize! All winners notified Christmas Day (I believe…)
I shall continue my Friday Wine Blogs, but otherwise blogging might get spotty due to the holidays and writing time. Be good now, and remember to drink responsibly!
UPDATE: 12-1-11 Well, I didn’t win The Romance Reviews best paranormal book (angels and demons) for 2011, but hey – I SO don’t mind losing out to JR WARD!!! She is a fantastic writer and her Brotherhood of the Dagger series is wonderful. If you haven’t read her stuff yet, please do so!
Update: 11-30-11 LAST DAY TO VOTE!!! Go to The Romance Reviews and give Demon Soul some love, if you would…I’d surely appreciate it.
I’m still at The Romance Reviews until the end of the month – and now DEMON SOUL has been nominated for an award! Which is really exciting, especially considering the people in my same category. If you are so inclined, please go vote – there are a ton of wonderful books nominated in a bunch of different categories! Voting ends November 30th.
I’m also over at Angie Azur’s Writing Teazurs Blog with an interview. We met at this year’s Big Sur Writer’s Conference and we’ve kept in touch ever since. She’s got a lot of great guests on her blog – be sure to dig around in past posts.
I have a page up at Avid Reader’s Haven - they’re a new reader / review site, so check them out and give them some love. That’s it for now – back to work on DEMON HUNT!
Update 11-1-11 For the month of November, I’m over at The Romance Reviews!!!
Update 10/27/11 I’m participating in SPOOKAPALOOZA over at The Romance Studio – where there is really neat STUFF waiting to be won! Go on, comment on ANY post and you’ll get your name put into the hat. No purchase necessary – but you’re gonna see a lot of books that look awfully tempting!

Find it at Crescent Moon Press! UPDATE 10-13-10 I am very happy to announce that I’m contracted with Crescent Moon Press for Demon Hunt and Demon Soul! When I have more information, I’ll let everyone know – but in the meantime, check out my publisher at crescentmoonpress.com … thanks! 9-25-10 Welcome! I’m a writer of novels, plays, and short stories. Someday I may even write more than one screenplay, if my husband has his way. I’m still studying and learning my craft, and I suspect no matter how many novels, plays and short stories I have success with, I will ALWAYS be studying and learning. Currently I’m working on a series of paranormal romances, a couple of YA novels, and a play about two people who end up being each other’s salvation. Never let it be said that I’ve got a one track mind. Take a look around, let me know what you think. It’s my first website and I’m sure as I get better at this, I’ll be tweaking it. In the meantime, enjoy!
