Story Ideas – Shadows at Dawn

on November 8, 2019

I’ve always loved a good plot.  People ask me how I come up with ideas for my novels, but the truth is, I really don’t know. Sometimes the kernel of an idea grows out of a newspaper article or something I see on Facebook or just some old movie.  Most of the time, it’s so… Read More

“It’s Die Hard…with romance…”

on October 22, 2019

I’ll admit it, Die Hard has long been my favorite movie. Some might say this is a strange choice for a romance writer—but then, some might say I’m a strange romance writer generally…yeah, moving on!

Characters — Finding the Right Match

on October 3, 2019

When it comes to Romantic Suspense, one of the most import and often the hardest thing to do is to find the right match for the hero or heroine who is the primary character in the book.  In THE DECEPTION, Hawk Maddox is a former Marine, a strong, tough, sometimes reckless, chance-taker.  I needed a… Read More

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.

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

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