A Fourth of July Shout Out!

Happy Fourth everyone in the US! Whenever a holiday comes a long, I get a little grateful and take time to think of those that mean a lot in my life. Today, I thought I'd share a bit about my writerly buds...

We all know that writing buddies are an important part of this business. But for me, it goes way beyond just the crits and safe places to vent. My writerly buds are the best darn cheerleaders in the world. So, I wanted to take a moment and give a very LOUD and PUBLIC shout out for Elana Johnson, Ali Cross, Danyelle Leafty and Michelle Mclean. My own personal cheer squad! 

Like any good cheer team, the flyer (me in this scenario) is supported by four VERY IMPORTANT cheerleaders – the bases, the front spot and the back spot. Let me show you how my four writerly buds 
support me just like the squad supports the flyers!


Front spotter Michelle – she is there to make sure I land safely and to ensure I don’t come CRASHING DOWN. And trust me, Michelle has been there to support me every time I go flying – whether it’s off a cliff or into a new project.


Back spotter Danyelle – Her job is to help launch and protect my stunt, something she does beautifully. Through her daily support I know that I am NOT alone in this business.


Bases Elana and Ali – I couldn’t even consider doing this without these two. Every single day we talk in some form. Every single day we support each other. And every time I am ready to fly again, they are there, launching me to bigger and bigger heights and making sure I come home safely.


All four of them make sure I successfully complete every attempt to fly. And when I crash, ‘cause boy, do I ever crash, these four are right there to pick me up, dust me off and make certain I try again.


They are my squad, my family, EVERY THING!!!!!!!!!!!!


Who are your cheer squad members??

It's Release Day!

Wow! This post was a long time coming. My 6th novel (and 17th book), OUTBREAK, book #2 in the Solomon Experiments, is officially out day.

This is a special release for me. I had struggled to find my fiction mojo after my last book. Related to what was going on in my personal life and some residual feelings about my mother's death, it took me nearly 2 years to reconnect with my inner artist. The struggle was worth it, though, as I figured out some things about myself as an artist that I needed.

Now, I hope all of you will enjoy the book as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

OUTBREAK is the continuing story of Dakota, an 18 year old girl wrestling with her new awareness of abilities that make her the target of a black ops group. Here is a little more about the story:


Dakota never thought she’d crave her old life in Boresville. Not until the Creator’s assassins came and took everything, everyone, she cared about—all except for David. He’s the only thing she has left, and he wants he…

Collide and Transcend in Audio Format

Wow - it has too long since my last post! A lot has happened over the past few months. First, I've decided to re-launch my entire backlist. What does this mean? New covers, new interiors, and, in some cases, new and expanded stories. It also means releasing the books in audiobook format. Audiobooks are something I've wanted to do for a while. And now it is finally happening.

In December, I released the audiobook formats of Transcend and Collide - each with new covers and new interiors in the digital and print versions. I plan on revealing the new covers for the rest of the Solomon Experiment series (the sequels to Collide) later this month, with the actual books coming in late Feb and March/April.

In Spring, I will begin the re-launch of the Requiem series, including significantly expanded stories for books 2 and 3, new covers, new titles and audiobook formats.

I don't plan on only re-releasing books in 2016. In addition to the two new books in the Solomon Experiments, I ha…
