I’m currently working on the final book in my Chimera Chronicles series. Bk 7, it’s more fun to read from the beginning, but readers should be able to jump in […]

Sunburns and rum punch Summer 2019

A couple weeks ago, my daughter said to me, “i want to go to the beach.” I was all, “I hate the beach. Sand gets in unmentionable places. We don’t have the money. The ocean is too far.” Etc. Etc. Etc. (Ha! Identify the musical!) She brought her father in and started on the both […]

Fear and NaNoWriMo

Since it’s NaNoWriMo, I’m going to share a writing struggle. Every one of the Chimera Chronicles was inspired by something. 1. In Like a Lion has heavy the Pretender overtones. 2. Entity Mine was inspired by an episode of Discovery channel’s old A Haunting. 3. The Lion’s Share is inspired by an episode of Supernatural […]

Shiny Things week of Dec 10-16, 2017   I haven’t been regular on my blog for quite a while, so I’m hoping to change that. What’s distracting me this week.

she went to the RWA literacy autographing and saw this!

Me! Scary I know. So here’s the situation: you’re walking through the RWA Literacy Autographing in San Diego.

Shiny Things June 28, 2016

A look at the things distracting me this week. My books arrived in the mail! It’s lovely to hold your physical book in your hands. The thrill never goes away! I’m busy as a beaver working on getting Lion’s Prey ready for its August release. I hope the extra weeks I took will translate into a […]

Chimera 4 Delayed

I’m sorry to say that after LION’S PREY (CHIMERA CHRONICLES 4) came back from my beta reader, I realized it needed substantial additions to address my beta reader’s concerns. Several thousand words were added and now need to be edited and polished before I can turn it in for the professional editing of my fabulous […]

All My Favorite People Are Dead

Or I guess I should say that they don’t exist. You see, though of course I love my family and friends, a large number of my loved ones are fictional characters. Many people get excited about meeting the actors who play characters they love, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki from Supernatural for example, but for […]
