Birthdays (again) and good news

Today it's time to celebrate ANOTHER birthday! My youngest celebrates her 11th birthday today. Over the weekend we hosted a fabulous sleepover with her friends, filled with swimming, dancing, and cupcakes. It was truly epic.

But that is not the only thing we celebrated over the weekend. After much angst, procrastination and threats of either throwing my laptop out the window or deleting my manuscript, I finished a particularly difficult pass of revisions on my current project, TRANSCEND.

TRANSCEND is a YA Gothic thriller, filled with romance and classic horror elements. I love the story, even though it is kicking me in the rear at the moment.

I still have another difficult pass to finish, but for now...I am just happy I finally got this pass COMPLETED!

What are you guys celebrating or working on?


  1. Aw, happy 11th to your daughter! My stepdaughter turns 11 in about a month and we have her sleepover planned too LOL! Fun! Also, congrats on finishing your round of revisions!

  2. Happy birthday to your daughter, and congrats on finishing your revision pass!

    I'm still slogging my way through my summer NaNo project, but it's fun (mostly, hah).

  3. Your daughter is so cute. Congrats on finishing the revisions.

    I finished mine about a month ago and am waiting for beta readers. I need to start my new project as soon as I help my daughter figure out high school which she starts in 2 weeks.

  4. Happy birthday to your daughter.

    Good luck finishing Transcend. YaY!

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…
