Book Update

I’ve released two new romances in the Romancing the Gods series, Pandora’s Penance and Cassandra’s Curse. I’m not fond of tragedies so I’m turning Greek myths into happily ever after romances. Fun for me to write and hopefully fun for you to read.

Pandora Jones roams her city streets at night, gathering the worries that keep others awake. The ultimate lonely girl.

When handsome playboy Zee’s father sends him halfway across America on an errand,  Zee cannot refuse. One does not say no to Zeus.

Smart, playful, and satisfying, PANDORA’S PENANCE rights an old wrong and brings an Olympic god down to where love and romance rule.

 

 

 

Cassie Brown loves her job working with sail and power boats. Loves her fiancé, Portland’s most eligible bachelor.

Loves her life–except for one tiny thing. She sees the future and no one ever believes her.

Handsome Pauli drives the launch at the marina. Just a short stopover on his way to somewhere else.

Until he meets Cassie and everything changes.

CASSANDRA’S CURSE brings a modern twist to an old myth about love and betrayal.

I just finished the eleventh book in the Junkyard Dog series, Bolkarus Station. That will be out later this month.

Watch for a new free short story every month on the fifteenth. I keep those on this site for two weeks only after which you can buy them at your favorite retailer.

Where did 2017 go?

The older I get the faster time flies. I wonder if it’s because when I was a child I lived in the moment, and as an adult I have a constant running list of things I want/need to accomplish?

I’m working to get back to that living in the moment mindset. I truly believe it is the key to a happy life.

I went back and reviewed my goals for 2017 and was quite pleased to see that I met more than half of them. I consider that a huge win since I always come up with more goals than I can possibly achieve unless I work all the time. That’s just not going to happen. Life needs to be lived. Read More

Working Behind the Scenes Lately

I’ve been busy trying to catch up with marketing and publishing—both of which require new programs and courses and climbing learning curves. Some days I feel that I might as well just beat my head against a wall, that’s how little progress I make. But persistence pays off, as it does in all avenues of life, and I’m slowly climbing the curves. The bad thing for me is that it all takes time away from my writing, which is the part of this job that I like best.Read More
