#WhatImReading 1/23/2018 edition.

Thanks for all the notes about the release of Almost Gothic yesterday! I really appreciate the feedback, and I’m glad Rusty and Eliza’s story resonated so strongly with everyone. 🙂 And you can pre-order the next book in the Suncoast Society series, Empty-Handed Heart.

If you don’t like it? Don’t read it. #BannedBooks #rantalert

If you don’t like it? Don’t read it. #BannedBooks #rantalert

So, apparently (quelle shocker) there’s a book kerfluffle right now. An author wrote a dark erotica book that went #1 in the romantic erotica category on Amazon. Then a bunch of other people started reporting it to Amazon. NOT cool. Not cool at ALL. If you don’t like a book, don’t read it. But unless … Read More

As a romance author, yes, I know one of my primary jobs is to entertain. I get that. I have fun writing the smut stories I write. I tell stories that wind themselves up … Read More

Law enforcement characters in my books.

I’m frequently asked by readers about kinds of characters in my books. Military, law enforcement, and cowboys are usually the top three queries. While I have a few retired military characters, I have several books featuring characters either actively in, or retired from, law enforcement. Broken Toy (Suncoast Society  – coming February, 2014) features Det. William … Read More

What books disturbed you?

Thanks to the “books that stayed with you” thing going around Facebook now, I learned of a book that, I’ll admit, I’d never heard about before. On the Beach by Nevil Shute is a post-apocalyptic novel written in 1957 and set in 1963 Australia after the Northern Hemisphere basically nuked itself into oblivion. I’m over … Read More
