Time to celebrate folks! I just turned in the last novel in the Royals of Solana trilogy, Crown of Solana, into my publisher. This puppy took way too long to finish, but it will be well worth the wait! On-the-edge-of-your-seat action and suspense doesn’t even begin to cover it. Writing “The End” felt fabulous and heartbreaking at the … More Celebrate! Another ‘The End’!
Today, my hubby has reached a major milestone: the top of a hill most archeologists would date back to 25 years ago. But to me, it’s not a hill: it’s a pedestal. Happy birthday, B. The “butter to my bread, the breath to my life.” My partner in crime. Thank you for you: for saving … More Happy Birthday, to my Hubby
It’s November. The time for colder weather, colorful turning leaves, college football, pumpkin spice lattes, and being thankful. Thanksgiving is so rarely depicted in fiction novels.

A year of querying and rejection. Fourteen full or partial manuscript requests from either agents or editors. What do all of these equal? I will be … More I Will Be Published… Happy Dance Time!
Major milestone, people! After plotting for 2 months and writing for 5 months, my first draft is complete on novel #3. *Commence happy-dance, ala Steve Carrell* Couldn’t be happier!
