Story Ideas

on July 29, 2019

I’ve always been a plot-oriented writer.  People ask me how I come up with ideas for my novels and the truth is, I don’t really know. Prior to the release of my first hardcover novel, THE CONSPIRACY,I wrote a very short digital story–AFTER THE SUNRISE, just published on Amazon–mostly because I woke up on a… Read More

More than just chemistry.

on July 19, 2019

You’ve read that sizzle. That heart-pounding moment you know two characters have it, that undeniable pull that keeps them coming back to each other. It’s the moment I love in a romance book, and if I’m being honest, I thought was 100% fictional. Until it happened to me. You read that right. It was Christmas… Read More

DEALING WITH STRESS

on June 26, 2019

When a publisher decides you have enough people who… Read More
