Thanks so much for having me here on Writerspace. I’m so excited to share my newest story, the last in the Love Unexpected Series, Story of Us. Declan James figured he’d be a bachelor for the rest of his life and was perfectly fine with that. But when Sophia Strombi—a friend’s younger sister—comes back to… Read More

I'm a mom and wife first and many things after. I'm a best friend and a regular friend. A daughter, sister, auntie, a teacher, and maybe even... a writer. I am a book lover, a shopper, a pajama-wearer, movie-watcher, worrier, over-thinker, and a wanna-be-good-Samaritan. I'm a Gemini, a nervous talker, and an emotional writer. I am represented by Frances Black of Literary Counsel. 

Momming

on March 12, 2019

When I began my first novel, I had no idea how all consuming writing could become. When a story hits you out of the blue, or the fix to a scene you’ve been agonizing over drops into your lap, you want to get to your keyboard. Stat. Unfortunately, that’s often easier said than done. Because… Read More

The Last Letter

on February 27, 2019

Sobbing in a hotel room at 5 a.m. I have six kids, which means our life is a wee bit hectic. During hockey season, with four sons skating and a husband in the military, silence is more than golden…it’s unheard of. Usually, I can roll with the noise, and I write during the day while… Read More

“They don’t have chemistry.”

on February 18, 2019

Four words you never want to hear from your agent when you are writing a romance. But I heard them, and it was the best thing anyone has said to me. — I spent months trying to write The Crush Collision. I knew that Jake Lexington was my main character—and I knew him through and… Read More

In the Dog House 

on February 15, 2019

by Traci Hall During my research for In the Dog House, my contemporary romance for Entangled’s Bliss line, I fell in love myself—with funny dog videos. Cat videos. Animal videos. They are addicting, and they always made me smile or laugh. Talk about instant mood lifter. We all have so many reasons to be stressed—relationships,… Read More

Deleted Scenes

on January 16, 2019

By: Shannyn Schroeder As I writer, I’ve often been told to use deleted scenes from my books as a bonus for readers. The problem is, although I don’t plot out books, I tend to be a pretty clean writer. That means I write scene to scene and rarely have a whole scene to cut. One… Read More

Finding story ideas in the simplest things.

on January 10, 2019

Whenever I’m at a book event, one question seems to spring up: Where do you get ideas for your books? Inspiration comes in various ways—a song on the radio, a current news story, or just while chilling with friends and family. The idea for Analiese Rising came from seeds planted in my past, fertilized with… Read More

Holiday Traditions

on November 13, 2018

by Jennifer Hoopes For some of us, the Christmas holiday is full of traditions and memories, possibly both good and bad, and while writing The Cowboy’s Christmas Baby, and more recently getting ready for its release, I couldn’t help but relive some of my favorite things about Christmas growing up. With my dad’s passing in… Read More

The Most Beautiful Girl I Never Knew

on November 12, 2018

by Robert Tate Miller Her name was Jamie Heckman, and she was the prettiest girl at Flat Rock Junior High. But, where “pretty” often opens doors to teenage popularity, Jamie was scarcely a blip on our school’s social radar screen. She had few friends, and I wasn’t among them. The year was 1976, and I… Read More
