Happy Holidays

Posted On Dec 13 2011 by

First of all, I would like to mention that when TWCS Publishing House approached me about participating in this event, I was asked if there was a particular day I wanted assigned to me. I chose today, because 35 years ago, my father was killed in a car accident. I was the epitome of a “Daddy’s Girl” and never really fully recovered from the loss. My mom had taken be Christmas shopping early that year, 1976, and the memory of seeing my Christmas present, a faux trophy made of a Budweiser can (my father’s nickname was Bud), haunted me for …

A Remarkable Day!

Had my first ever booksigning today. I autographed several copies of my book CONNECTED and let those buying the ebook version know that they could upload their copy to Kindlegraph.com and I would autograph it for them as well. It was a great way to celebrate my birthday. A GREAT BIG KUDOS to Laurie of Bona Fide Reflections and Cafe Java(Austin) for hosting my book signing today with fellow author Michael Elaine Schneider! And let’s include the fabulous women of TWCS who made it all possible. Those who couldn’t be there, we missed you but we know you work just …

So DONOR Has Been Creeping Up On Me

Posted On Nov 17 2011 by

My next book is called AKA AURORA. The best way I can describe it is The Long Kiss Goodnight meets The Bourne Identity. It’s gonna be great. The Long Kiss Goodnight is one of my all-time favorite movies and Charley Baltimore is definitely who Aurora is based on. But the book after AKA AURORA, a medical thriller, has been creeping into my consciousness through my unconsciousness–as in my REM sleep. I wake up and have the uncontrollable urge to write about Lulu Segura, a young widow who just completed her residency as a surgeon months before her husband, a fellow …

BITTERSWEET HARVEST IS COMPLETE!!

Posted On Nov 4 2011 by

Moments ago, I submitted my final draft for my third novel, BITTERSWEET HARVEST, due out sometime next summer. This novel is a story line I’ve considered over the years, but as a “romance” writer, I wasn’t exactly sure if I could accommodate it to my genre. However, I think I have done a pretty swell job of it. It is a psycho-thriller, but underneath it all is a husband and wife whose marriage is humanized by the troubles of parenthood and the forgiveness of betrayal. I struggled with the character of the PB-that’s psycho bitch for those not familiar with …
