Wherein I spill my secrets...YIKES!

Hi there! Last week, my good friend Rebecca Knight tagged me and asked me to spill my darkest secrets - or at least 10 random facts.

So, even though I think I am boring times a million, here you go - random facts or secrets that promises to be TMI

  1. I obsess No really, I do. I obsess about my house, my job, the friend that seems mad but maybe isn't, the manuscript that is sorta good but maybe not good enough. It's exhausting
  2. I once when shark diving. Coolest thing EV.ER
  3. As much as a can talk a good game - I am pretty chicken when it comes to extreme adrenaline activities. So, I may say I really want to try spelunking (and I do) - but I am way too scared to actually do it.
  4. I had a dream of competing in a triathlon once. I finally had to come to terms with the fact that it will never happen - especially since I hate running now that my knees are just...old!
  5. I'm old. No really....compared to my writerly friends, I'm pretty certain I am the oldest!
  6. I have not necessarily aged well. In fact, I gained weight. Far too much weight. The good news, however, I have lost a nice percentage of it recently. I still have a ways to go, but YAY!
  7. When I was in third grade I was obsessed with the play Macbeth. I even convinced my friends to re-enact it at school. Little did I know that would later influence some of the projects I am now writing.
  8. Before I decided to have children, I wanted to be a profiler. There is just something about understanding the minds of crazy people that is fascinating to me. Once I had kids, however, I knew I could never do that job. Never. So now, I write about crazy characters instead!
  9. Some of my favorite non-writing activities include gardening, cooking, cross-stitching elaborate tapestries, reading, and hanging out in nature (beach, mountains, etc). I only wish I had more time for those things now!
  10. One of my ultimate dreams is to go diving on the Great Barrier Reef. I am hoping to do that with my daughters and husband one day.
Okay - enough about me. Time to tag a few others. I want these people to tell me their wildest dreams - or just a few random facts.


  1. LOL awesome! Seriously, we are so like it's kinda scary :D

  2. I obsess about everything too. Sharks? Yikes! Congrats on losing some weight. Keep going!

  3. I like to do cross-stitch too! And sharks, I think I'd be too scared to do that.

  4. We have a few things in common too. I've been known to obsess about everything and I hate to run. Although I have said it would be cool to complete a triathlon... I do mean for the person I'm talking to, not so much me.

  5. I wish I had more time for hanging out at the beach too, LOL.

  6. Sharks? Oh dear...that was an adrenaline kicker in and of itself. You are so much braver than scaredy-cat me.

  7. Oooh, great list. I feel you on the obsessing thing. I tend to do that too. And sharks? Uh... no.

  8. I've snorkeled at the Great Barrier Reef. Thus ends my interesting facts. :)

    I'll have to do some serious thinking! Thanks for including me.

  9. Hi fellow campaigner, thanks for coming by my blog! Great interview with Michelle Zink btw.

  10. The more I get to know you, the more awesome you are. :D *hugs*

  11. Hey you!!! Yeah, I feel like I'm an oldie too (but goodie) and just as obsessed! So twin powers activate!! :D :D Sharks, wow!!!

  12. Awesome giveaway! Thank you!:D

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…
