How do you take care of yourself?

I’ve turned into something of a busybody and I have to say, I enjoy it. It’s the kind of busy that nurtures my introvert qualities. Currently, I’m: Reviewing manuscript submissions.

I know…

Hi guys, I know you guys have been waiting for A&A 2, and I appreciate your patience. I really do. Writing, no matter how much I love it and how long I’ve been doing it, is still one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done (and I do it on a daily basis). It…

Is the A&A series too dark?

As I’m reviewing and editing Book 2 (I did mention that it’s in the editing phase, didn’t I? Oh…silly me ::wink::), I’m wondering if the A&A Series is too dark based on what I’ve published in the past. If I’m being honest, I love it and I actually want to get a little bit darker. I would…

Irma Update

We got so lucky. Right before it hit Tampa, Irma downgraded to a Category 1. I am so grateful. I stayed with my folks so when driving back to check on my apartment, it was a very surreal feeling to know that a hurricane had passed through the night before. Power was out (and still…

I may be out of reach…

Hi all. I’m in Tampa right in the path of Hurricane Irma. We’ve been prepping and planning, but I just wanted to let you guys know just in case we lose electricity or anything like that. If you’re in FL, please stay safe. ❤️ Alex

Excerpt (unedited)….

This is the one I’ve already shared in my reader’s group, FYI. No release date yet for A & A 2, but I’m still shooting for a summer slot. Dez & Larke: After one last, quick squeeze, she darted up the path. Even carrying the large contraption, he kept up pretty well, especially since those…

Why I’ve been M.I.A

If you’ve noticed I’ve been MIA lately, it’s because I’ve been hunkering down. I’ve created a goal to try to deliver a book every 3 to 6 months; six months for full novels and three for novelettes. The Woman He Wanted came out in December, so I’m trying to hit my goal (at least for…

How Do You Know When You’re Ready to Date Again?

I’ve been single for a while and I’ve enjoyed it. I’ve had trials and tribulations, met some interesting men, but my relationships always seem to blow up like a match tossed on top of gasoline. My 1st relationship–he struggled to be attracted to me. My hair wasn’t long enough, my figure wasn’t right, my skin…

Couple Update: Tayler and Gage – “The Baby Wolfe…”

FYI…this is very NSFW. She thought he didn’t know. Gage’s eyes followed Tayler as she moved about the living room holding up small, colored pieces of paper against his stark, white walls. She wanted to paint and that, he could understand. She spent most of her time tending to patients in a hospital, so it made…

After having met when they were stationed in Fort Riley, KS, both sharing a military background, life for them has blossomed into two children (ages 14 and 6), and an “ability to laugh and love even through firing bullets.” What is your…
