Day #2 of the Collide Extravaganza: Meeting Dakota

Welcome to Day #2

I'm thrilled to continue the celebration of Collide's release with a little character interview involving Dakota, our main character. Now, Dakota is what I would call a reluctant hero with a mysterious past and an even more mysterious future. Here's a little more about her:
CF: Tell the readers out there a little about yourself.
Dakota: Me? Well, there’s nothing really to tell. I live in a tiny town; go to school like every other 17-yr-old and yea. That’s about it.
CF: Is that really all?
Dakota: Um, yea. Okay, well no. That isn’t all. I sorta have weird dreams. A lot. And an occasional panic attack. Maybe even a mental breakdown or two. Okay, fine...I’ll tell you all the truth. My parents took my brother and me into witness protection forever ago because of some crime or something they witnessed. They didn’t tell me my life was a lie. Not until they told me I had to move. That’s all I know about it.
CF: Okay, moving on. What do you want more than anything?
Dakota: A few days ago I would have said I just want out of this boring town! Me, my BFF Jenni and my boyfriend Jake (Okay, ex-boyfriend). Now that I’m being forced to leave, now that I know my whole life is a I just don’t know what I want.
CF: What are your thoughts about paranormal activity and psychic phenomenon?
Dakota: What? Like the show? Or....
CF: Tell the truth Dakota. Remember, I actually know your thoughts on this stuff.
Dakota: Okay, fine. I think there is a lot more reality to psychic abilities than most people are willing to admit. In fact [she leans forward to whisper] there are times I think I can see the future. Or make people do what I want them to. I know that makes me sound like a freak.
CF: Last question—
Dakota: Finally
CF: What do you want readers to know about COLLIDE?

Dakota: COLLIDE is a YA thriller made for the cross-over, mystery reader. It’s a rollercoaster ride, with tons of action, crazy psychic phenomenon and a touch of government intrigue. Think X-Men meets the Bourne Identity with a touch of Nikita and you’ll have it. Christine and I can’t wait to give it to you all and get your thoughts on it!

I hope you enjoyed this little intro to Dakota.

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…
