Heroes Fighting for a Cause a Romance Anthology I may be a romance author, but sometimes the real world invades my romantic bubble and like all of us, I can’t help being heartsick about the Ukrainian refugees. When I woke up in the middle of the night three days ago full of angst, I knew I had to do something, couldn’t stand by and do nothing for another minute. So I called on my author friends and we did what authors do. We put together this romance anthology. ALL proceeds w
a college enemies to lovers romance Even college romance stories require research though, heaven knows I’ve been there and done that! It’s an ongoing process, even in the middle of writing the story. The Latest RESEARCH TIDBITS One of the things that’s cool to do in a story is to have a “signature scent” for the hero and/or heroine.
But for the hero in this story, Jack Hunter, I didn’t want it to be the same old spicy musky scent, so I did some research.
I googled men’

Is the corona virus a world disaster? Has it touched all of humanity? Or is my headline a bunch of bullsh*t? How about compared to other disasters/tragedies in the recent past around the world? Hurricane Rita was a big one here in the U.S., affecting a lot of people, not only in New Orleans, but all over because it shut down the ridiculously popular tourist destination for months. Some say it took years for the Big Easy to bounce back. But still, it wasn’t exactly a world-wid

With larger than life characters, Trent Lockheed as the dreamy superstar quarterback who excels in bachelorhood as much as in football, and Charline Morneau, a gorgeous doctor, who’s devoted her life to medical research, highly respected in her field, the story took on its own life.

Hollywood is not in danger of me taking it by storm, but I did have fun creating this book trailer for my latest installment in the Beachcomber Investigations series, Beachcomber Danger. The dramatic opening, the music and the credits at the end are all part of iMovie’s “Hollywood” treatment. Hint: The book is better than the movie! Let me know what you think of the trailer. (Myren, my chauffeur, has of course weighed in. He thinks I’m hopeless and have nerve even referencing
According to a BlueZones.com article, “A recent study published in JAMA Psychiatry associated activities like reading books… with a lower risk of dementia in older adults.” In fact, if you’re reading this post right now, you’re probably adding seconds, if not minutes to your brain’s life. Now you may think I’m biased, being a writer of books and all, but JAMA Psychiatry is real. I had nothing to do with that study, honest to goodness pinky swear. The study was in China for Pe
Here’s the tab: The trouble with being stupid-in-love is that it makes you stupid. And you have your whole world to lose… Dane Blaise was once a special ops legend, so he’d been in danger before.
But not like this. This time it counted for all the marbles. Shana was not going to let Dane take on this assignment without her, though she knew he wanted to. The stakes were off-the-charts high. This was about saving the President. And there was no way she would let him shield her
