Vanished from Cast of Characters

April 3, 2012 | Better than chocolate,News

Cast of Characters

Hi there! I’m thrilled to announce that I have a new story coming out today: “Vanished” in CAST OF CHARACTERS.

Ten years ago, Cindy and her long-time boyfriend had the perfect date at their high school prom. Before the sun rose the next morning, he’d vanished and her family was dead within months.

Now she’s come back to West Virginia for the class reunion, planning to bury ghosts.

She’s hoping to maintain her manicure and stay atop her new high heels. She doesn’t expect to dance with a swordsman – or fight a dragon.

For more information, please visit Vanished‘s page.

Research on the Run

November 18, 2011 | Better than chocolate,News,Quirky notions

Hi there! I’m blogging today at History Hoydens about doing research on the run. Or, the best ways to look up fun facts far away from libraries and museums.

Please stop by if you get a chance! I’d love to hear about your favorite websites and apps.

Shakespeare and Saloons

July 25, 2011 | Better than chocolate,News,Quirky notions,The stories

Hi there!

I’m blogging today at HISTORY HOYDENS about how daydreaming about going back in time to see Shakespeare and saloons helped lead to “Talbot’s Ace,” in IMPROPER GENTLEMEN.

Please drop by if you get a chance and chat about if you’ve ever wanted to see an opening night of a great play or piece of music. Or if you’ve ever used such a day dream in your story.

Small bit of shameless self-promotion: IMPROPER GENTLEMEN will be released tomorrow, July 26th. Wheeee!

Release Day Party

March 29, 2011 | Better than chocolate,News,The stories,Tuning the instrument

Bitten by BooksHi there! It’s March 29th and THE SHADOW GUARD is finally out and about in a store near you, both in print and e-book!

To celebrate, I’m holding a Release Day Party at Bitten by Books, complete with giveaway and chatter about the wacky things that happen while writing a book. I promise to hang out by my computer all day so I can answer your questions and keep on chatting, on any topic you come up with. (Okay, so maybe my dog Honey thinks I’m doing this so she can chase squirrels all day. But this is all good for everyone, right?)

Hugs and kisses to everyone! Please stop by when you get a chance!
