I write stories of crime and passion, mystery and suspense, and most of all love.
Please check back from time to time to learn what’s new in my world!
It’s officially spring!
Spring always comes early for me – the calendar date I mean. Weather-wise it’s never really spring when March 20th rolls around, at least not where I live. To me it’s not spring until the trees and flowers begin to bud with new life and I can leave my house without a winter/fall coat.
After a tease of springtime weather about a month ago, followed by another round of cold and even some snow, we seem to have turned the corner in coastal Virginia in the last couple days. My ugly winter coat (that I keep because it’s warm and has a hood!) has been replaced with a light raincoat, and the heavy sweatpants I throw on around the house are now the crop version.
I might even crack open a window or two and let some fresh air in.
My Latest News
I was at the Virginia Festival of the Book a few weeks ago, soaking up the ambient star power of writers like Joanna Bourne, Mary Jo Putney, and Joshilyn Jackson. These wonderfully talented authors joined about ten others for a day of romance panels sponsored by the Virginia Romance Writers—affectionately titled “Love Fest.” And it was!
If you love books, look around for festivals in your area, or consider traveling if you’re able! It’s a terrific opportunity to meet your favorite authors and hear them talk about the books you love. And it’s a great way to meet fellow readers—it’s a win/win!
And speaking of festivals and fairs…I’ll be appearing at the “Celebrate with a Book” author fair taking place Saturday, May 11, at the Regency Square Mall in Richmond, Va. In August, I’ll be moderating a panel of authors on the subject of publishing and its various models at the Hanover (Va.) Book Festival. Please check back for details as the dates get closer.
I’m fortunate to count many writers as my friends, and you can catch me blogging with the Women, Words & Wisdom crew (W3 for short!). Look for me talking about games we play with our minds the second Wednesday of every month.
