    I’m often asked when I started writing and I have to be honest, I can’t remember when I wasn’t writing. I loved books as a kid and like many authors I ran out of stories that I liked to read so I began to make up my own. I wrote my first teen novel when I was thirteen and my first romance when I was seventeen. Of course neither manuscript was very good, but I never gave up and after I finished Graduate school I decided to take some time for myself and get back to my writing. I’m so glad I...

Hello Friends, wishing you all a blessed Christmas season. Hope you find much joy! Stay safe & warm and slow down so you may truly enjoy your family and friends.

THE CHRISTMAS CLOCK

The holiday season is upon us and my Christmas novella, THE CHRISTMAS CLOCK, will be selling for $1.99 (e-book) in December. It's "an emotion-packed contemporary romance that will have you smiling one moment and in tears the next."

OUTLAW GHOST

My short story, OUTLAW GHOST, will be debut in the Kindle store on Amazon in December for $.99!

Callie Sutton, new to Texas, had just moved into the Victorian home she had inherited from a distant aunt. It had been empty and in disrepair for thirty years. Ghostly sounds in the house on her first night made Callie extremely uneasy. She didn't believe in ghosts. The single red rose she found lying on top her kitchen table the next morning made her insides tightened. Her 911 call brought Sheriff Brendan Trask to her door. Would this strong incredibly handsome man be able to keep her safe?

I hope you'll watch for OUTLAW GHOST, and if you haven't read THE CHRISTMAS CLOCK, I hope you'll pick it up.

January 2020 marks my 300th book with Harlequin. I began writing for them when they were still known as Silhouette. The company was eventually bought out by Harlequin and, other than 11 books elsewhere, Harlequin has been home for me ever since January 1983, two months before my son was born. Thank you Harlequin--and of course you wonderful readers--for making me feel appreciated.

Meg Tilly

After selling her beach house and moving into town, Meg and her husband are unpacking boxes while wrapping others for her grown children, who will all be home for Christmas. On the writing front, Meg is working on her next novel and winding up promotions for HIDDEN COVE, the third sexy, romantic suspense novel in her Solace Island series, which made its stellar debut in October. HIDDEN COVE would make the perfect gift for readers who enjoy the kind of edgy action that characterized many of the movies in which Meg has acted---plus a delicious dose of romance. A widowed art gallery owner, Zelia Thompson, and crime fiction novelist Gabe Conaghan work furiously to solve the murder of Zelia's close friend, who mysteriously dies of a "drug overdose." But Alexus Feinstein didn't do drugs ... and the killer has earmarked Zelia as his next victim. (A bonus: Gabe's lovable parents!)

When we moved into our new house, to celebrate, we got this Christmas tree. It was too tall for our great room ... and the ceiling's 16' 8". Don't laugh, our friends Donna and Monty gave it to us, so it was free and we didn't have to chop it down. The Husband cut a foot off the bottom and a foot and a half off the top. We carried it in. (Our manly neighbor was conveniently not home to help, so I got elected to carry the "light" end. My contribution consisted mostly of saying, "Wait! I'm standing on a branch!")

When we stood it up, the tree hit the ceiling. The Husband got the loppers, stood on the ladder and cut off another foot and a half. Some might say it smelled like a Christmas tree in here. Actually, it smelled like the whole forest. We had to buy garlands, bulbs and lights (ya think?), and we risked our lives to decorate the tree by using extendo-pinchers and tall ladders. Everyone in the family thoroughly enjoyed the tree.

A few days after Christmas, we invited Donna and Monty to dine with us, drink with us, and admire our gorgeous tree --- which makes the evening's events so much more appropriate.

We were in the great room after dinner, chatting and relaxing. Donna and I sat on the couch, Monty sat on a chair facing us, The Husband was on the other couch, also facing us. The tree was off to our right. And right in the middle of the conversation, Monty who is a erudite, articulate, learned man, shouted (and I'm quoting him exactly), "Ptrmmble! Shxzmnrt! Argk!"...READ MORE:

Cover Reveal

I'm thrilled to show you the cover of my next standalone psychological thriller, HAVE YOU SEEN ME?, which will be published in April by Harper Collins.

HAVE YOU SEEN ME?

On a rainy fall morning, personal finance journalist Ally Linden shows up at the office, grabs a seat in the conference room, and starts scribbling notes. But minutes later she's told she doesn't actually work there anymore. In fact, she hasn't been an employee for the past five years. Ally, it turns out, has no memory of anything before this exact moment.

Before long her memory returns---except for the past two days. Where was she during that time and what was she doing? Does her husband know more than he's letting on? And why does she have blood-stained tissues in her pocket.

As she sets out on a desperate search for the truth, Ally must dig deep into the secrets of her past, learn to spot the lies in people's eyes, and outsmart the unseen person who seems determined to silence her.

Just in time for holiday gift-giving, BEYOND RISK is currently on sale!

"BEYOND RISK is a delightful mixture of small-town romance, high-octane suspense, and breath-taking outdoor settings in the rivers and waterways of Florida. But what truly sets it apart is its focus on family and friendships. It was so much fun seeing a heroine who could out shoot, out think, and out-smart just about anyone...but gorgeous Hunter Boudreau, with his sexy Cajun drawl, is still going to do everything he can to take care of the woman he's falling in love with." -- Must Love Romantic Suspense

"If you have never read a book by Connie Mann this is an excellent place to start." -- Amazon review

Mary Jo Putney

FINALLY Mary Jo Putney's two new audiobooks are available!  Both ANGEL ROGUE and her novella THE CHRISTMAS CUCKOO are lighthearted stories, fun for the busy holiday season, and both are narrated by the wonderful Siobhan Waring.

Nothing soothes his ravaged spirit until a determined young beauty sweeps into his life.  Half Mohawk and all American, Maxima Collins will let nothing halt her journey to London to learn the truth about her father's sudden death---not even a self-appointed guardian who is all lazy charm and dangerous skill....

THE CHRISTMAS CUCKOO: Practical Meg Lambert drives to the local inn to collect her brother's friend Jack Howard--and comes home with the wrong Jack Howard! With Meg and her family, Jack finds a warmth he's yearned for all his life, but what will happen when the right Jack Howard turns up for Christmas?  A mere two hours long, The Cuckoo is bargain priced for holiday fun.

When the Halcyon crash lands on Planet Kao, he's the first one to interact with the aliens who show up to help. The blue haired beauty, who led the delegation, haunts his thoughts and dreams.  Is it possible for them to have a future together?

When the Council sends her to be their emissary, she's surprised by the size of the ship and the humans inside. She's even more surprised to find the handsome human ambassador is slowly melting her frozen heart.
