Big News!!!

HOLY WOW!!!  
Where did all the time go? One moment it is early August, and the next September is here. I am so sorry I feel off the blogging planet. To say the start of the school year has been hectic is a serious understatement!

But, that's not why I'm here. I wanted to share all shorts of book-related news. New books coming, award nominations, and lots of non-fiction book escitement: 

It's an exciting time.

So, let me get to it:

UPCOMING NEW SHORT STORY/ANTHOLOGY

You may have heard of a fabulous NEW anthology coming in early October, Strange and Lovely.  The book features fabulous CLEAN paranormal romance stories. Here's a little more about the anthology:

Mermaids, changelings, and ghosts...oh my!

From fae assassins to subjugating the dead, Strange and Lovely is a collection of short stories that seamlessly blends spine-tingling chills and swoon-worthy romance.

This anthology of supernatural creatures from ten talented authors, serves up short stories with heart-stopping storytelling that will haunt you long after you've put it down.

If you love tales of the paranormal variety, but can't decide which ghostly, supernatural or otherworldly creature to focus on, here's the perfect book for you.

Whether humorous, suspenseful, or romantic, the stories in Strange and Lovely will leave you feeling wickedly entertained.


My contribution to the anthology is a NEW short story called Dark Night. Based on the Requiem World and the Seers, Dark Night follows Tristan as he tries to save his sisters from their fate. It is a precursor to a new series coming in late 2015 or so. EXCITING!

Strange and Lovely comes out October 4 and is available for pre-order HERE!

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…

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…
