The Key is now available in print!

My eighth novel, THE KEY is now available on amazon and at the discounted price! And I'm doing a giveaway. My sister made me these really cool bookmarks for the launch (that you can see here: and there are more on the way.) So, buy THE KEY, send me proof of purchase and I'll send one to the first responders until they are gone.…

I'm being stalked by a character from the book I just finished. He's mad because he didn't star in the last book and he thinks he's a star.

I've had characters that I knew I was going to write about later, but I've never had a character be so insistent that I misjudged him. He wasn't exactly a bad guy in the book, but he wasn't all good either. And I gave him a terrible name for a lead.

Now I'm trying to find him a good middle name that we both can live… Continue

I'm Curious...

On one of my other author loops, we've been deep in a discussion about what would be the perfect ebook reading device. Obviously, opinions are as varied as the people involved in the discussion. <g>

I feel like I've got that covered. I've been a proponent of e-reading for a long time. When the hubby and I moved from New Orleans to Houston--as empty nesters--we had to downsize everything...and that included my extensive book collection. But I'd been adding to my ebook collection… Continue

Someone is always in peril. Someone will die. Bad guys will be stopped. Happy endings are not optional.

Hi, Tony, nice to see you here, too! :-)

Well, Life would be really boring without those curve balls. I don't actually mind an ending that is not...neat, if it still feels satisfying and right. And I love being surprised by an ending. If someone can make me think, wow, that was way cool, you know I'll be hunting for more books/stories by that author.

Hi, Pauline! Glad to see you here. I'm one of those who generally likes happy endings, too, although once in a while I like to throw people a curve ball.

This is an easy place to decorate. Very cool to just click stuff and other stuff appears. Wish my house were this easy.

Ah, c'mon! You're never too old for a good strip search!

Just dropping by to say hello & welcome. Looks like you've already started decorating & getting settled in!
