It’s a Little Like Giving Birth #MFRWauthor

People ask me all the time if I write myself into my books. Yes and no. Most of my characters are male so I don’t particularly identify with them other than finding them attractive and, for my heroes, likeable. My ego may show up in a female character at some point, probably more as someone…


Recollections #MFRWAuthors

I have heard people claim to remember events from their childhoods, some clearly as far back as their toddler years. Maybe they do. I don’t. What I have are flashes, pictures that come to me. Sometimes I know their context, sometimes I don’t even know that. My earliest memory is of me as a preschooler…


The First is Always Special #MFRWAuthor

I have been writing most of my life. Although every story has a permanent place in my heart, House of the Rising Son is my favorite work. The obvious reason could be that it was my first traditionally published novel. Firsts always have a special place in your heart. But that isn’t the only reason…


Book Quotes I Love

My weekend was not what I hoped. I missed the deadline to join the 52 Week Chalkenge Blog Hop, but I thought I’d share my thoughts anyway. I still prefer paper books to ebooks. One reasis the ability to underline and write in a physical book. For awhile I kept a 3×5 file box of…


These Words #MFRWAuthor

When I hear the phrase “words to live by” I think of Facebook memes and quotes at the end of writing exercises. But they are more than that. Often they’re a shorthand for someone’s philosophy toward a particular thing or life in general (Don’t sweat the small stuff), or an emotion. Speaking of which, I…


‘Tis Always the Season

I have friends who say they would like nothing better than to have static seasons, preferably in a warm climate. I can’t imagine being happy with that. There are things I don’t like about each season but why deprive myself of the good parts? It will be difficult to limit myself to the best part…


The Way to My Heart is–Hold on, I’m Not That Easy #MFRWAuthor

I admit it. In some regards I’m a tough nut to crack. I don’t impress easily and I surely do not trust easily. However, there are a few traits that I find appealing, characteristics that will touch my heart immediately and lower my guard. Probably the easiest way to my heart is showing gentleness and…


The Only Love There Is

As a writer of Urban Fantasy,  I live to tell stories that transport you to a super- natural world, one that intrigues you, touches your heart, and entices you to return over and over again. I also hope to give you something to think about.  The characters you meet are a motley bunch of beings:…


Their First Kiss #SexySnippets

Today’s 7 sentence sexy snippet is from House of the Rising Son. It’s the first kiss between Cheyenne (the hero and incubus) and Alexander, the human who is inexplicably drawn to him. Well, at least inexplicable to Alexander. He wanted Cheyenne–the surprise was it never occurred to him he’d have the chance to do anything about…


From Novel to the Big Screen: *Meh*

The blog hop topic this week is my “favorite movie made from a book”. It would have been so much easier to write about favorite books that had been ruined by being made into a movie. I’m not generally a fan. One of my earliest favorite movies is The Haunting (1963) based on The Haunting…
