    Finally, SPRING!

    I’m getting the rights back to North Star and have been working hard to make the stories even better than they were when first released five years ago. I’ve created a sign-up sheet for North Star re-release updates. Come sign up!

    Silver Scars – A story of hope

    For the first time since I released Silver Scars back 2015, it’s back on Kindle Unlimited. Read Now   If you’ve not read this book yet, prepare to dive into a story of pain, fear, hurt, and comfort. It’s a story of hope, compassion, healing, and unexpected love that you’re invited to watch unfold from the first time Gil travels since a bomb destroyed his life until he finds his HEA with Keith. I won’t lie and tell you it’s an easy read. It was one of the hardest things I’ve written. So much of the story comes from my own experiences with PTSD, anxiety, and learning to live with chronic pain…

    My World This Monday

    It’s snowing. A true winter storm with wicked winds, lots of accumulation, and canceled events left and right. I knew this was coming, so when I got a call that my new glasses were in, I didn’t bother to hop in the shower and just drove to get them. Then my kiddo and I got breakfast before I dropped my tax paperwork off at my accountant’s. Then as the snowfall gathered, I lost myself in Excel creating a tracking sheet for sales the rest of the afternoon. So today and the weekend were largely admin stuff. It has to be done, but OMG, I hate it! Haha. Back to editing…

    My World this Monday

    The release of Love on a Battlefield went off without a hitch. Okay, there were a few. I had to reschedule half of my prescheduled tweets and Facebook chopped off all the details about my book on the post people shared and only showed the photos. I remedied those issues pretty quick. I’m pleased with the release. For a novella, I never allow my expectations get too high because shorter books never sell as well as novels. But I love writing novellas. That length is fun for me, which was the entire reason I worked on that story: writing had turned into drudgery, not fun. So the favorable response is icing.…

    PTSD-lite, PTSD-gritty

    For those of you who’ve read Love on a Battlefield and crave a grittier look at PTSD than what I portrayed in that book, I’d like to recommend Silver Scars to you. Gil’s life is destroyed after an explosion left him shattered. When he meets Keith, a man living with struggles of his own, Gil feels hope again. Gil’s PTSD is not a result of war like Andrew’s was, but it’s just as powerful. Maybe more so. I actually poured a lot of my own PTSD and anxiety into Gil’s experience and I pretty much wrote Silver Scars as therapy to get me through a deeply troubling time in my own…

      North Star Trilogy This week I’m finishing up a major restructure and edit of Spark. Yes, you read that correctly. I’m getting the rights back to the entire North Star Trilogy later this year and each book is going to be re-edited. Spark is getting the most work. I’ve restructured how the book is laid out, moving scenes around, combining some, and cutting a lot of words. I’ve added scenes as well, reworked the climax of the book to make it stronger, and added a bit more to both Kevin and Hugo’s heroic journies. While I don’t want to change the meat and bones of the story, I am cutting some…

    I’m Drowning in Files

    Despite my adorable puppy on the gloriously clean image of my desktop above, I really suck at organizing files. Not just paper ones but electronic files as well. It has a lot to do with the fact that I don’t have a decent naming system and that I often click Save and my edits end up in some obscure file directory I didn’t even know existed. The only place where I’m fairly decent about this is with my editing and formatting clients. I at least have a system and I save the files to one spot so I can work on them from multiple computers, if need be. But then…

    It all started on a GeoCities …

    In that last year or so, I have neglected my website. I used to blog nearly every day. That was a long time ago and before I started writing fiction. back when blogging was actually my out and one of my few connections to the world. I was living in a small, conservative town where even the mayor’s wife was considered an outsider after having lived there for 25 years and being the #1 childcare within twenty miles. They were my neighbors, and it wasn’t until we were packing our house into a moving van that she shared that with me. We lived in that small town for five years.…

    Playlist: Love on a Battlefield

    I haven’t created a ton of playlists for books I’ve written. Part of that is that it’s impossible for me to write while I’m listening to music. Music was truly my first language. I was picking out notes on a keyboard from a song I just heard as a toddler and was composing before I could write. So my attention goes to music before anything else. It’s a soul language to me, as cheesy as that sounds. Haha. But music truly speaks to me in a way words don’t. As I wrote Love on a Battlefield I kept wondering what music Andrew and Shep would be listening to throughout the story.…
