Wherein I sing Happy Birthday and drive more than 5000 miles!

Happy Friday Everyone! Today is my beautiful Teen's birthday - so before I can do/say/write anything else, I MUST wish her the very best of birthdays. This one is particularly impacting to me - the LAST birthday of her HS career, my teen is driving, preparing for college and standing on the threshold of adulthood! It is a strange place for me, indeed.

We are having a very small celebration for her birthday this year - just a bunch of her family and friends enjoying Wreck It Ralph at our community movies-at-the-park Friday. Fun, low key and perfect given our epic road trip starting on Sat...

Which leads to the next part of the conversation. As I am on the road (literally! Just check out the picture above - we are literally driving across country and back) for the next 2 weeks, and starting school immediately after that, the blog is going dark until 8/11. At that time, I am revealing a new blogging schedule, a new look (part of which you can see here already), and other exciting news.

The summer has been amazing. But I still have SO MANY MORE things to do before settling into the school year in August. I guess I'd better follow ever-amazing Ali Cross's advice and go all #writingninja style when I return!

See you on the flip side. And be sure to check out my FB page and my author page for fab pictures of the trip...


  1. Happy birthday to her! And safe trip! Can't wait to see you!

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…
