positive highlights of 2016

2016 was a sucky year in multiple ways, from the political mayhem to the premature deaths of too many icons like David Bowie, Prince, Florence Henderson, Alan Thicke, and now George Michael, Carrie Fisher, and Debby Reynolds since Christmas. But as we look forward to a new year, I’m choosing to focus on some of […]

my favorite books of 2016!

It’s been a few years since I wrote my roundup of favorite books of the year, and I decided it was time to revive the tradition. I read about seventy-five books this year and enjoyed almost all of them, but I limited my favorites to twelve (one per month). My list includes books I read […]

public service announcement: don’t call me Ma’am

I’m interrupting my regularly-scheduled editing session to write this blog post. I’m attracted to men with good manners. I find it sexy. I always notice when a man, even a stranger, lets everyone on or off an elevator before exiting himself. I think it’s sweet when a date walks to the passenger side of the […]

Won’t you pre-order my books?

At long last, I’m thrilled to announce that my five chick lit/romantic comedy novels are available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, and Kobo. If you’ve read the books and enjoyed them, I’d love if you spread the news of their republication. I’d be even more excited if you were so inclined to […]

cover reveals (five of them)!

It’s cover reveal time! Revealing one cover is super thrilling, so imagine my excitement to share five at the same time.

I’m typically very attracted to these characters and want them as my own husband, boyfriend, lover etc, but […]

news from my editing cave

I’ve once again been lazy with my blogging, but I assure you I haven’t been lazy in general. I’ve been editing like a mad woman. I told an author friend how exhausted I was after revising three books in a row and she said that editing is so draining, it’s like being hit by a […]

because I’m “middle aged”

I dreaded turning forty and the unofficial entrance into “middle age.” I think I started worrying about it around thirty-seven and remember going to bed on my thirty-ninth birthday vowing to take advantage of the next three hundred and sixty five days of my thirties. I’m not sure I really did. Honestly, there is only so much “taking advantage” one can […]

Editing (again)

In my last post, I announced that my five chick lit novels were picked up for republication by Henery Press, along with two future ones. I didn’t go into details about what would happen next, specifically editing. Several people were surprised that my new publisher wanted to edit five books that had previously sold well […]

BIG NEWS!!!

I’ll start off with an apology: I’m sorry it’s been so long since I posted on my blog! It’s been a crazy time for me—very stressful, yet exciting at the same time! Over the last two and half months, I’ve been in a constant state of anxiety over the fate of my five novels and […]
