Fall is decidedly my favorite season, and not just because my birthday is in autumn. I love everything from the cooler weather, the leaves are in full color, all things pumpkin, and wearing hoodies, and lets not forget football season. Fall also gives me the cooking/baking bug. A lot of my favorite squashes are in season as well as apples. I recently discovered this fabulous recipe from Live Simply using sweet potatoes and apples, and if you’re really daring you can add pecans.
Don’t forget to sign-up for the ebook giveaway, along with 11 other great books, you can win a copy of my latest book, Atonement–which happens to take place in the fall. The Raffelcopter link follows the recipe. Good luck!

Yup, DoD gets put in a 4-in-1. And it’s slated to release on February 23, 2015. No links yet, so hang tight.
I’ve finally got a newsletter drafted and will be sending that out as soon as I have some vital info to put in. Eventually I’ll be putting in some goodies that you can only get in the newsletter. So head over to the Contact page and sign up. You don’t want to miss exciting content from some of your favorite characters.
One more thing, if you haven’t done so, please, leave a review on any one of my books in the Degrees of Darkness series. Nothing says you love an author more than leaving reviews.
Well, if you take a stroll around the website I’ve updated some things and added new pages. Go ahead, look. I’ll be here when you get back.
Ok, now that you’re back on to the news. I’ve completed my contracts with Crimson Romance and I’m in the process of writing a new book that is a darker romantic thriller with the heroine taking more of a role in this book. My agent and I are also submitting to a new house and when that all takes place I’ll let you know. I’m busy with a new job, new coaching position, and becoming a football mom–yay me!
As of right now, I don’t have anything really new to report on new books. Relentless is being released in a bundle with other Crimson Romance authors, you can find the links and such here:
Racing Hearts Bundle
Oh, I’m also putting together a newsletter that will have some goodies. So stay tune!
So, moving to a new state, starting a few new jobs, deadlines for writing and editing have sort of taken me away from here for a bit. But don’t worry, I’m back, for now.
Revenge, book 3 of my Degrees of Darkness series released on November 11 after a huge Kindle Daily Deal run of Relentless. Color me totally excited about that whole thing. But it’s come to my attention that readers who are reviewing Revenge think it’s over. Book 3 is the end. Ummm, not quite. See, Cody and Remy have one li’l, well maybe not little but huge, matter to attend to before they can move on to their Happily Ever After. Someone killed, murdered, tragically ended Cody’s mother’s life. And someone, other than Cody, is hiding a deadly secret.
There’s one more book to their story called RECKONING. Hopefully its not the last book in the DoD series since there are a few secondary characters setting up for stories of their own. Don’t give up yet, dear readers. Those two aren’t quite done with you yet.
