You Know You Spend Too Much Time @ Starbucks When...

It's no secret that I LIVE at Starbucks...especially since I am in full edit mode and plan to hide in the cave until these edits are done, coming out only for work and a little family time. And since my "cave" is Starbucks...yea....well, you get the picture.

So, I thought I'd give you my own version of the

10 - Your clothes all smell like coffee
9 - The first thing you think about in the morning is your latte
8 - The baristas all know you name AND your drink order
7 - All the baristas at ALL of the Starbucks in town know your name and drink order
6 - Your husband makes a Starbucks run for you and the baristas all know it's for you the minute he starts ordering
5 - Your friends leave messages for you at Starbucks!
4 - Your parents, friends, co-workers, and family start buying your Starbucks cards
3 - You refuse to get coffee anywhere else
2 - You start basing characters off of the Baristas
1 - You start Jonesing for Starbucks coffee...ONLY Starbucks coffee...20 minutes after to leave the place

Gotta love my Writer's Cave!!!

I'll be hiding for the most part - so be sure to email me in anything exciting happens. :D


  1. Can I add one? How about "You married your favorite Barista" - true story! :D

  2. Since I work at Starbucks, I pretty much live there too. But I spend my writing time at a local coffee cafe and they know me by drink too. :)

  3. OMGosh, woman! This is awesome! But I know you need a cave right now, LOL! I am so stealing this!

  4. Ah, writers and their rituals. Best of luck in the editing cave!

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…
