Forest’s FALL, the agony of creation.


I am writing and this story is killing me.I’m about a third of the way into writing Forest’s FALL. This story is going to be bigger than I originally thought. I can feel it. At 35,000 words, the first pivotal moment has arrived. My gut twists as the words flow from My-Mind-to-the-Page. The knots twist and turn with the agony of this scene I just finished. It’s raw and ugly, painful and heart-breaking. Yet, it’s only the beginning of Forest’s FALL.I know where this story is taking me. What I don’t know is if I have the strength to take that path. It’s going to be ugly and it’s only getting worse from here. Each time I open my laptop to write, I have to pause for a minute and find the strength...

Writing Forest’s Fall


I’m working on writingForest’s FALL, book three in the Captive Hearts trilogy. This book is gutting me. Challenging doesn’t begin to describe the scope of this book. I’m bringing together threads, little Easter eggs sprinkled throughout several of my series, to weave this final story into a polished product. In this epic crossover, you will see characters from my Changing Roles series (Command/Control/Collar) and Angel Fire series (Heart’s Insanity, Ashes to New, Hearts Desire, Hearts Collide, and Hearts Divided) all coalesce into Forest’s journey.He’s on a mission battling human sex trafficking and death matches and will face his nemesis, John Snowden, in an epic battle of wills. Will our g...

Flinches from my touch turned to squirms as I discovered her ticklish spots. Her cautious gazes turned to hesitant interest. Her movements loosened up. No longer stiff and protective, her natural grace began to shine through. Over time, I slowly realized a shocking truth. She wasn’t used to a man handling her with such intimacy, and I suppose I enjoyed that kernel of knowledge more than I should.Help Ellie Get the word out: Spread the news! Tell your friends!

The Seven Best Romantic Suspense Authors of Our Time

The Witness
According to the Romance Writers of America, romantic suspense is the most popular sub-genre for readers who love a love story. They want their hearts to melt a little, but they also want their spines to tingle or their skin to prickle. These readers want it all–a roller coaster ride of emotion big enough to take them away from their own, ordinary lives.After reading (and listening) to hundreds, maybe thousands of romantic suspense books, I of course have a few favorites. Is this a list of the seven best “in my opinion” romantic suspense authors?Maybe. I don’t know. Why don’t you read a few you’re not familiar with and test me out?1.

Floundering My Way Through the Fog

pier-407252_1280
 Is there anything more unsettling than not being able to see the path ahead of you clearly? Driving home on a foggy night when you mistakenly choose to take the back roads instead of the highway . . . Waking up to look out your window and realize you see . . . nothing but a dense, pale grey haze. It’s how my life feels right now, since I’m not really sure what my tomorrows will bring.You see, a few months ago I held a full-time job, plus spent every spare moment I could nurturing my life as an author. A trip, a tumble, and a broken arm later, my entire life has been halted in its tracks. I can’t work, I’m in constant pain, and even my writing is on hold. Typing, just recently at all possibl...
