Game of Thrones Characters A-Z #AtoZChallenge #GoT #GameofThrones


Game of Thrones is coming back!  To say I’m excited is an understatement.  This series of books has long been a favorite , and watching the show has become a treasured family event in a stage where convincing two teenage boys to spend time with me can be difficult.  A few years ago, I did a GoT version of “TheA-Z Blog Challenge” , something many authors participate in during the month of April.  The idea is to post a new topic every day, using the alphabet for inspiration, but instead, I made one big post highlighting one GoT character for each letter of the alphabet. It has been so popular, I decided to do it again with a new list.  I tried to find characters included in both the books and ...

"Mystery, Intrigue, Heartache, #Romance, + Suspense...Had me up all night" New #Book #Review! #amreading


One fateful night tore them apart... will they get a second chance before a killer strikes? Not many things make me smile more than hearing a reader couldn't put my book down and stayed up late to keep reading...I love when I find a book that does that to me, even if I don't love how I feel in the morning!  But we readers know how amazing it is to fall into a story so hard we just have to know what happens next.  So when I hear that about my own books, I do a happy dance for my characters, because they are absolutely real to me, and I've managed to make them, and their fate, real to others. I'm linking the entire fabulous review from Sincerely Karen Jo here . A few of my favorite quotes: "Ka...

The Haunting of Hillwood Farm in #CapeCod News! #paranormal #Books #Mashpee #Barnstable #amreading


My latest release received a wonderful write-up in our local papers, and I'm posting the online version here...the reporter enjoyed this ghost story + romance and asked some great interview questions.  I'm thrilled my 6th novel has been named Best Romantic Suspense on one review site, among The Top 40 Paranormal Romances at another site, and is nominated for a prestigious RONE Award at InD'Tale.  This story was challenging to write, for many reasons, so I'm glad readers are finding it entertaining.  The Haunting of Hillwood Farm is available on Kindle , in paperback , and soon as an audiobook.  If you enjoy spooky hauntings and romantic suspense, I hope you'll give it a read (or a listen)!

I'm on the List! Top 40 #Paranormal #Romance #Books! #FridayReads #amreading #PNR


The Haunting of Hillwood Farm has had an exciting few months since its release!  This title is my latest romantic suspense/ghost mystery, and it first released in November as part of a Romantic Thrillers Box Set (Love Under Fire), and the set hit the USA TODAY Bestseller list at #44!  My story was then reviewed at N.N. Light's Book Heaven, and it ended up winning Best Romantic Suspense of 2018 on their site.  Since the box set was a limited edition, this title was re-released as a stand-alone a few months ago, in January.  Because it's part of the Kindle Unlimited Program, it was free on Kindle for a few days in early March, and it hit #1 in three categories on Amazon! I managed to screen ca...

The History of St. Patricks Day ~ #StPatricksDay #StPatricksDay2019


Look at this adorable cup of clover my girlfriend gave me for St. Patrick's Day!  So cute. Happy St. Patrick's Day!  These past few years, St. Patrick's Day has taken on a little more meaning for me, after I got my DNA results back and discovered I have a lot more Irish blood in me than I thought!  I did know I had a Sullivan on my father's side of the family a few generations back, but the results say I'm 61% British and Irish.  I've always enjoyed taking part in the holiday fun--wearing green, drinking beer, and serving a traditional Irish meal. You'll notice I said "serving", not "cooking"...cooking is not one of my strengths; however, writing is.  So rather than offering a recipe, I'm de...

Touring Historic Mt. Washington Hotel #NH Mount Washington Resort #travel


Unfortunately, the fog completely obscured the majestic Mt. Washington behind the hotel...but it also added to the spooky The Shining atmosphere! A few weekends ago, my husband and I traveled to North Conway, NH, for a fun-filled skiing weekend with friends.  Now, I only cross-country ski at this point in my life, thanks to a certain disastrous skiing weekend in 2013 .  But, that's okay, because I was able to cross country right from the back door of our friends' condo, while most of the others drove to a nearby mountain.  But as we all shared coffee and chatted that first morning, the subject of having drinks later at Mount Washington came up.  I had no idea what everyone was referring to, ...
