Book Birthday!

I remember meeting with my editor about the Cabot novels back in 2016. His enthusiasm for the project matched my excitement, which made me eager to get started on BEFORE I KNEW. Fast-forward to today. As I write this short post, I've got the manuscript for the third...

My Tribe!

I just returned home from a five-day long Romance Writers of America conference in Orlando. It's quite shocking, frankly, as I was convinced I would melt in that heat. The trip confirmed, once again, that I could never retire to the Deep South! As always, I learned...

April Fool’s Pranks

Happy April Fool's Day! I'm not much of a prankster these days, but when I was younger, my stepfather and I used to try to sneak up and surprise the other. I'll admit, he won the best "scare" attack of our ongoing battle. One school night in the early-mid 80s, my mom...
