Milestones and Highway Divides

Weddings are a time to reflect and grow, holding the past and embracing what's next. I am both surprised at the speed of this change in my daughter's life, and transported back to my own twenties.

Romer’s Candle – New November Release

I'm working on a new paranormal romance called Romer's Candle, which is Book 3 of the Broke in Magic series. I's been a long time in the hopper, mostly because I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with Romer. He's complicated. Broke in Magic is a trilogy about three besties, Jasper, Wellie and Romer,… Continue reading Romer’s Candle – New November Release

Summer Insanity and other Melty Things

Good grief, it's not even August, four books published, and my brain is mush. You'd think, after three decades in Florida, I'd schedule publishing for the cool days of February, but nope. If you want a snarky beach read, you want one when you're actually on.the.beach. So, Boogie Beach, Salt Shaken, and the upcoming Speedo… Continue reading Summer Insanity and other Melty Things
