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. I know you want to get the big names autographs, but when you’re done, if you like shifters, stop by and say hello to me. I’ll be wearing this (Pictured above): my Supernatural T-shirt. I’ll want to […]

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.

Those who’ve read a number of my blogs know I do most of my writing on the treadmill (Which doesn’t make me thin, just keeps me healthy), but here’s what it looks like when I write from my couch. This is my brindle basenji Ranger on my lap. Our vizsla Lali usually pushes in too, […]

Shiny Things April 16, 2016

Today I redo what I wrote yesterday. We writers are used to re-writing, but I went to edit a simple error–the date from yesterday–and managed to erase my whole blog! The thing is I’m not a newbie at this whole computer thing… Moving on… Buenos Dias, amigos! Today I am peeking out from my editing […]

Shiny Things 1/1/2015

Shiny Things January 1st 2015 Things interesting me this week: The old year. New Year’s is always a time for reflection. Shortly after the start of 2014, I got the shingles. I still have some neuropathy (pain in the nerves) from that, so I suggest everyone get the shingles shot. They’ll tell you it’s uncommon […]

Am I weird? Part 5

How Weird Am I? part 5 I let my eleven year-old daughter watch America’s Next Top Model as an educational experience. Let me ‘splain. The young models say and do things which I would hope my daughter never does. They make ignorant comments and they trash their fellow contestants. One of the latest contestants claimed […]

Guess who just sent in her contract?

Of course, you’re right! It’s me. I just returned my signed contract to Soul Mate Publishing for ENTITY MINE book 2 in the Chimera Chronicles series. I’m really excited as this book had been delayed by a sad case of “Where do I go fro here?” when I changed my mind about my plans for […]

It’s a B-what now?

Thalia’s familiar spirit is a basenji. Basenjis are about the size of a fox terrier. The standard male weighs 24 pounds and is approximately 17 inches at the shoulder. Basenjis are members of the hound group and use both their eyes and noses to hunt. Originating in the Democratic Republic of Congo, they were used […]
