International Dateline!

I’m thrilled to announce that SECRETS OF NANREATH HALL has been picked up for publication in SWEDEN, DENMARK, FINLAND, and NORWAY under the HarperCollins Nordic imprint. Release in these countries is set for the summer of 2017.


I’m thrilled to unveil the dazzling cover for my upcoming release, SECRETS OF NANREATH HALL which is scheduled for release 8-2-16!!

I’ll have full information, excerpt, and buy links up on the website as soon as I can, but until then I’m including Amazon and Barnes &Noble’s here for anyone who wants to pre-order now.

Bligh Family Series Update

Happy almost New Years Eve, everyone! If you’ve tried to purchase either of my para-storical Bligh Family series titles in the last few weeks, you might have noticed that retailers are telling customers that both books are currently unavailable. I plan on spending time this coming year working to repackage the series and re-release both books in 2016 along with a third and brand-new story featuring a mysterious Bligh cousin whose upbringing was a bit more otherworldly than usual.

Look for updates here and on Facebook as I move through the process, but know that I’m working as fast as I can. Hopefully, the lapse in availability won’t be too much of an inconvenience. Thanks for your patience!

November News

Well, I’ve finally done it. My brand-spanking new website is complete. It’s been a long time coming but I couldn’t be happier about having both author personas and all my books in the same place. It’s like gathering all my children back together again under—and just in time for the holidays.

And speaking of holidays, it’s been a busy month at my house. I completed revisions for Secrets of Nanreath Hall and sent them back to my editor who I hope is even now raving over my mastery of the English language. We’re anticipating an August 2016 release for my debut historical fiction novel (Amazon already has it up as a pre-order) though no cover yet. I’ve seen quite a few great options, but we haven’t hit on that one perfect image. I promise to post it here as soon as we do.

In the meantime, I’m banging away on the first draft of its as yet untitled follow-up. It’s not due until next summer which makes me feel like I have oodles of time, but I know how deadlines can creep up on you when you’re not looking so I’m trying to stay nose to the grindstone until it’s finished. Right now, I’m deep in the weeds which is always a tough place to be. It’s the phase where I can’t possibly see a way to the end and all seems at its darkest. (my own personal black moment). Then the a-ha moment hits and I’m off to the races. At least, that’s how it’s supposed to work. We’ll see.

If you’re looking to comment on anything I post here, ask a question, or just shoot the breeze, you can check me out on Facebook or Twitter. I hang out at both places under both author names so there are lots of places (and ways) to chat with me.

I hope to check in often, but if I don’t get the chance before the chaos of the holidays hit, I want to wish everyone a bright December with family and friends.
