1 Embrace The Magic

Hi, Everyone! It’s great to be here today at the WRITERSPACE BLOG! For those who don’t know me, I’ve been a writer for *ahem* a long time. No, I’m not going to own the decades, lol! A-n-y-w-a-y, before I wrote paranormal romance as Caris Roane, I enjoyed many years of writing sweet Regency Romance as… Read More


I am a big proponent of celebrating life’s events, big and small.  And I’m perhaps a bit contrary in my methods. I like holidays to be celebrated at the appropriate time of the year.

It isn’t often a writer has two books coming out within three weeks of each other, but that’s how it happened for me this time around.  It’s exciting of course.  What writer wouldn’t be thrilled to have his babies born as twins.  But it has also been strangely eerie.  Though born only weeks apart, my… Read More

2 Novel Settings

Place has a deep effect on people and their lives. In the same way, a region’s landscape, weather, and culture play an important role in shaping fictional characters and plots.

The Beauty of Taking Chances

I remember the day the Southern Sewing Circle Mysteries came to be like it was yesterday…mainly because it almost didn’t happen (not with me at the helm, anyway).

For the characters to become real enough for readers to care about, the world they live and work in has to be three-dimensional and believable…. Read More
