Shifter Planet: The Return by D.B. Reynolds

on October 25, 2019

The first full manuscript I ever wrote was a fantasy that I submitted to a writing contest sponsored by one of my favorite authors. I’d been reading fantasy and science fiction since I was 13 years old, and knew that’s what I wanted to write. I didn’t win the contest, but I received some very… 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!

It’s All About the Small Things

on February 4, 2015

So apparently creating a convincing, likable, relatable character for your book is hard. Who would have guessed it? If you don’t get the figurative whip out and control those characters telling your story, then not only can they totally get out of hand and do whatever the heck they want, but they’re also at risk… Read More

Jess has been making up stories ever since she can remember. Though her messy handwriting made it hard for anyone else to read them, she wasn’t deterred and now she gets to make up stories for a living. She loves loud music, a good book on a rainy day, and probably spends too much time watching too many TV shows. Jess lives in regional Victoria, Australia, with her very supportive husband, three daughters, one ball-obsessed border collie, and one cat who thinks he’s one of the kids.
