Chapter I What was that smell?—dank, musty, mildewy. As consciousness returned , she realized she was no longer sleeping. Sleeping? she thought, as a rising dread began to grip her. No, not sleeping…unconscious. She could feel her lids opening and closing, and groggy as her mind was, she knew no amount of blinking could clear up the darkness that was totally absolute as it surrounded her. Her mind grasped for the most recent memories, trying to piece together any errant image that would produce a relevant thought. She tried to fight the rising panic. It was too late, the levy had …


Lost In Austin

Posted On Oct 19 2014 by

So sorry I have fallen down on the job–at least the job of Indie Author. I have been inundated at my PAYING job and I even use that term loosely as my boss still owes me my paycheck from the 15th. However, being mostly caught up at work, I have decided from here on out, I will be taking my weekends off and I have given myself the goal of one chapter of each book each weekend. So I will be working on STARSTRUCK and AKA AURORA simultaneously. In the meantime, let me share the news that my husband and …


CHAPTER VIII- plus incorporated changes

The butterflies in her stomach had nothing to do with the slight turbulence the plane was experiencing and everything to do with her impulsive decision to fly to Las Vegas and meet up with Zechariah Rohnan. This was no business excursion; on the contrary, it was all for pleasure. She glanced around the cramped commercial flight self-consciously, wondering if anyone close to her noticed the sudden infusion of color that flooded her cheeks as her body flooded with anticipation. For the next several days, she would not be attending concerts as a music industry professional, and the truth of the …


Ok, I’m Gonna Offer a Tease…

… because I’ve been working so much at my new job, I haven’t had a lot of time to write, edit, tweet, post, yadah, yadah, yadah.  Below please enjoy a sneak peek at the next full-length novel that will be available on this site… Well I was shooting for the end of summer but since we’re pretty close to July already, I’m thinking it’ll be closer to Halloween before I knock this baby out.  For now, enjoy Chapters 1 and 2 of A.K.A. Aurora.     Chapter 1 Dawn’s Journal-Present Day I am the only living child of blue-collar parents. …

Love you boys!! TTFN, kg


I Admit It… I’ve Been LAME!!!!

Posted On May 18 2014 by

I am so sorry I haven’t posted Chapters 4-7 or written Chapter 8 yet. I started a new job about two months ago and have been putting in a LOT of hours. PLUS I have been editing a book I started a couple of years ago but haven’t worked on much because I started it right before I parted ways with my publisher, which was NOT a good time. However, I am working on both books now… the one I am sharing on this site, STARSTRUCK, and the one I hope to have available for download on this site by …

As you all know, that show has been sold out for weeks now but KSTR still has some tickets to give away, so keep listening all the way up to my show tomorrow when Bad Boy Billy, who, sweetheart that he is despite his name, will be pulling a double shift, giving away the station’s last pair of tickets while covering my show and then his own. But I’ll be checking in via live remote throughout the …


Starstruck–Chapter III (Final Revision)

Posted On Apr 11 2014 by

Central Colorado in the summer was one of the most beautiful times of the year. Although some days it could be unbearably hot, as soon as the sun went down, everything cooled off. Starr was looking forward to the concert Friday night, which was being held at Red Rock Stadium, one of the premier venues in the country. Listening to her colleagues promoting the IED giveaway all weekend, she’d felt the usual rise of excitement that normally overtook her as a major promotional event was drawing near. A few months back, when KSTR had participated in a charity event sponsored …
