Happy Memorial Day (US), book friends! This weekend, the hubby is back from a month in Japan so you know what we’re doing, right?? …
Woohoo! Yay for painting all the shutters and window sills on the exterior of our house! Okay, admittedly, he’s less than this excited about all the manual labor but I’m daydreaming about a porch swing at the end of this madness and that keeps me going. Yesterday, we took a break and celebrated his birthday by shooting gu
Chapter One It’s happening again. This time, in public. Water clogs my mouth and nose. I kick my feet and stroke up ward with my head tipped up, desperate for air, but it’s no use. Everything around me is dark, and I’m convulsing. Dying. I’ve been drowning for weeks. The dreams come while I’m wide awake and nowhere near water. The current dream releases me, and I cough, clearing my lungs from the imaginary liquid as the nightmare fades. Sitting up, I frown and climb back ont

Hey guys! I am SO excited about this dualogy! It’s romantic and snarky and crazy unexpected. I can’t wait to share it with you on 7/18/18, but in the meantime, here are the first three chapters to get you started. (Okay, two chapters and a prologue. S This is upper YA SciFi Fantasy (Light on the SciFi, heavy on the fantasy!) and has bad language where appropriate 😉 Enjoy! Prologue Year: House of Leone 1129 Planet: Zorovia System: Ursuna Darkness spread out around me in the c
I hope your weekend was full of good books and cuddles. Fun fact: I am not a big, mushy fan of Valentine’s Day which is why this book sale (and this blog post) are coming at you AFTER all that hoopla has died down. I’m not a Scrooge about it, but I just don’t see the big deal about it–because if you’ve got someone special, they should be treating you like a queen (or king) ALL YEAR. And if you don’t, you should be treating yourself like one, without the prodding of commercial
If you haven’t heard, Havenwood Falls is a shared world with paranormal stories written by a slew of talented authors–all taking place in the same world. Some at the same time! There’s a lot of overlap which means recurring characters that show up in multiple stories BUT each story can be read as a standalone. This is not a series. It’s a collaborative world. Think Stars Hollow from Gilmore Girls–but with vamps and werewolves and whatever else supernatural you can think of! Y

It’s Teaser Time, book nerds! I’m back to work after a fantastic hurrication (the technical term) in New Orleans and wrapping up edits on O Face which is definitely the sexiest thing I’ve written this year. And obviously a statement like that demands proof, so here’s a a sneak peek for you. Meet Liam and Cassie… Big personalities in a small town. This is from Liam’s POV: I got up and wandered closer, reaching for the framed photo and holding it closer to get a better look. An
Whattup book nerds?! I am so excited (and relieved) to have Emergence out into the world. This one got me. I learned something about myself: “Last books” freak me out. I doubled my beta readers this time just to be sure I didn’t miss any of the little threads that needed wrapping up. And I was searching and smoothing up until YESTERDAY just before uploading this baby to Amazon, so yeah. Now I know for next time: prepare for a roller coaster ride when it comes to writing that
Esperance literally came out less than a week ago and already, you guys WILL NOT LEAVE ME ALONE. Although, to be fair, I don’t want you to.

So, I’m taking pity and giving you a #TeaserTuesday. Here’s a sneak peek at the opening to Imbalance (Heart Lines #4) coming May 29. (Pre-order now!) SAM My own blood boiled in my v
