Secrets and Lies Edits are In

Edits are in for Secrets and Lies, book 2 of my Cassie Scot series. I know, I know…you’re all still waiting on #1. Well, just know that #2 won’t be far behind. I got a new editor for this book, and I’m quite pleased about it. She’s found a number of issues, one significant, most […]

Interview with Author Shah Wharton

Today, I’m joined by Shah Wharton, author of a new adult fantasy novel, Finding Esta… Shah, the “new adult” label is a relatively recent book category. How would you define the term? And what made you decide to write new adult, as opposed to young adult or adult? Actually, Heather from Buried in Books told […]

Book Review: Alien Proliferation

This series manages to remain engaging as our heroine, Kitty, gives birth in a rather dramatic (melodramatic?) way. Her husband, Jeff, survives her labor pains — barely. Then, of course, all heck breaks loose. An old friend from high school barely escapes goons intent on killing her, there are traitors who need unmasking, and evil […]

The Hot Seat

One of my favorite things to do with my characters is to tie them up, shine a bright light on them, and ask them difficult questions until they squirm. Okay…not literally. Although I often picture them that way in my head. You can’t always accept the first thing a character tells you as gospel truth. […]

The Next Big Thing – A Blog Hop

Book Review: Cold Days by Jim Butcher

Dresden is BACK! Not that I was worried, but after the disappointing Ghost Days (#13), I was eager to reconnect with the Harry I knew. Cold Days is the 14th (yes, that’s right) novel in an impressively long series — impressive because I’m still eager for more! This series doesn’t stagnate. With each new book, […]

Eagle Rock, Missouri

  The body of water in the background of my book cover  is Table Rock Lake, a man-made lake that stretches for many miles through southern Missouri and Northern Arkansas. The story takes place in a fictionalized town called Eagle Rock, MO, a tourist town on Table Rock Lake in the Ozark Mountains. There is […]

Cassie Scot Cover Art Reveal!

After much delay and anticipation, here it is, the cover art for my upcoming novel, Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective! Drum roll please…. … … … The cover art was painted by Ural Akyuz. Some of you may be wondering: What’s going on in the picture? The woman is Cassie, more or less as I envisioned […]

Book Review: Alien in the Family

Alien in the Family is the third book in this bizarre comic-book style science fiction series that I continue to read for reasons beyond understanding. It’s like when you’re watching a really bad movie or TV series, and you know it’s bad, but it’s bad in a specific way, and you can’t take your eyes […]

Book Review: Alien Tango

The second volume in the super-sexy alien fantasy series follows the style of the first, so if you liked it, you’ll like this one too. If you didn’t like it, you won’t like this one. If you’re like me and are not sure why you’re reading, you’ll still wonder, but you’ll probably keep reading. 🙂 […]
