Unbelievable that I haven’t updated ya’ll in almost 2 years. But 2020 was crazy with a pandemic and many life changes for me. But if you haven’t followed me in social media, I have signed a 3 book deal with Tule Publishing, and the first book The Killer in Me releases in September. And I also signed with Tirgearr Publishing, and my romantic military thriller–or action adventure–Mockingbird’s Cry is due to release in July. They are going through book 2 and that should be released pretty quickly. Kinda crazy to be with 2 publishing houses.
And to add to that, I was asked to join Crazy Maple Studios with the release of their new reading app Scream, Chills and Thrills. The first two books in my McIntire County series, Atonement and Born to Die, are out with the app, the rest of the series and my Degrees of Darkness series will release in the months to come.
If you’re into the reading app thing, check it out.
I’m slowly getting all four books back up for purchase. They should all be up by the end of August. My plan is to leave them on Amazon Kindle for a good long while, and if you’re a KU subscriber go check them out! Click on the Books link in the drop down menu and head over to find where you can get these books and my Degrees Of Darkness series, which is now available at all e-retailers.
I finally bit the bullet. And with the awesome help of my writing partner and artsy best friend, we’ve got the first 3 books ready to go. Have a special idea/project for book 4 and can’t wait for you to see it when it’s done.
Relentless, book 1, is coming soon this first week of April, waiting on Amazon. When it’s up, I’ll have the link up and a newsletter out. The plan is to have the rest of the books come out very 2 weeks, but that’s up to Amazon for now.
Frankly, it’s been 2 crazy years for me the last two years. In late 2016 my publishing house Crimson Romance was brought into the Simon & Schuster family. I saw one more book published in late 2017 by my publisher Crimson Romance. Then 4 1/2 months later Simon & Schuster shut our line down and I was now publisher homeless. I pulled my first series down and hoping one day to put them back up either by a traditional publisher or self-publish. Stay tuned for that decision.
In the last 10 months I’ve been working on a new series, and my agent is now shopping this idea. Here’s knocking on wood, crossing my fingers, and hoping!
And I had my webdesigner update my website, as you can see. It’s an every flowing idea, so things could change once I know what editor and publishing house decides they’re ready to take me to the next level.
Stay tuned, and sign up for my newsletter to get more up to date info.

Between the fallout over his recent close re-election, two gruesome homicides, a rash of arsons, and personal grief weighing on his soul, the last thing Sheriff Shane Hamilton has time for is a determined FBI agent. But if they want to solve their cases, they must share their deepest secrets—before a cold-blooded killer snatches everything they love, including each other.
Sins of the Father: Deputy Jolie Murdoch’s first big assignment leads to a corpse and a prime suspect caught red-handed. But why would local bartender Xavier Hartmann bludgeon a man to death? A former marine, Xavier is barely coping with a traumatic brain injury, and he has no memory of what happened at the crime scene. To make matters worse, as the mystery deepens, he and Jolie find themselves drawn to each other. Will Jolie do her sworn duty or buck the status quo to give their newfound passion a chance?
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!
