Teaser Time – TRUST IN ME

The countdown is on! TRUST IN ME will be out in one week! His eyes searched her face and his eyes darkened as his expression shifted. He gripped her arms and yanked her body against his. “You’re forgiven,” he said gruffly. Then he crushed his mouth to hers. She stiffened for a moment before becoming pliant, soft. She felt herself melding her body against his. His lips explored hers, gently sucking and nipping. Her knees turned to rubber and she wrapped her arms around him to steady herself.

The Start of a New Year

Whenever I use phrases such as “this year” or “last year,” I tend to confuse at least a few people. For most a new year begins in January, but for me it begins in September. It’s a leftover result from over a dozen years as a teacher and before that, over a dozen years as a student. While I’m no longer in the classroom, I do have school age children, so I fear I will never leave behind operating in school years rather than calendar years.

10 Random Thoughts and Takeaways from #RWA17

I just returned from the annual RWA conference, which concluded yesterday. As an extreme introvert, I’ll need at least a week to recover. However, I can easily say (like I do every year) it was the highlight of my year. I absolutely love this conference. Here's my ten random thoughts and takeaways from this year. 1.

My “Super Secret Project” Revealed

So I’ve been sitting on one heck of a secret for a while now. I’m talking so secret I didn’t even tell my family. And here it is… I’m collaborating on a book with James Patterson! James FREAKING Patterson!!!!!!!!!!! I’m not a believer in multiple exclamation marks, but if any situation calls for it, this is it. It’s been so tough keeping my mouth shut, especially when I was sitting next to my dad who was reading—you guessed it—a James Patterson novel. I mean, seriously, how cool is this? It’s the opportunity writers dream about. What I’m most excited about…
