Bringing Back Fiction Friday and a Plea To You Writers...

Happy Friday! Why is it that after a Monday holiday the week truly can't end fast enough. LOL! Anyway, here we are at the end of my week-long roll out of the new look, the new focus, and the new blog schedule.


Friday's are all about fiction. And what better way, then practicing writing skills with a little Friday Fiction challenge. Here's how it will work - I will post a story idea today. Next week, I will post my Friday Fiction entry based on that theme. If you want to join in, you can - just sign leave a comment to let me know, or link back to this post. At the end of each Friday Fiction entry I will post next week's topic. These can be story starters, images or other pieces of inspiration.



For the first Friday Fiction, I thought I'd use one of my favorite exercises I use to explore emotions. Use the following emotions chart and pick ONE emotion as the focus of your Friday Fiction piece. That's it. Easy, right???

Now, the rules:

1) Sit down and write for a minimum of 15 minutes on the weekly topic.

2) NO EDITING allowed - this is a creative free-for-all, strictly editor-free. Consider it a lesson in letting go!

3) It would be great if we could visit each other's pieces and show some love - and remember, this is not about critiquing. Only cheering. It's an exercise - a way to get in touch with other aspects of the artist within and bring that to the writing.

Okay, now the scary part - I am hoping there will be more than just me participating in this. So please, join me...yes??? Leave me a comment and let me know if you're "in"

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…
