That Awesome Thing That You Did (and Didn’t Even Know It)

Thank you. That’s the best way to start this blog post. Thank you. Thank you so much. If you’ve visited this site in the last few months, you know that my latest book, NATURAL LOVE, came out in December 2014. It is my fourth major work to reach the marketplace, and it was a departure from the other books I have written. It also received a large share of pre-publication buzz, and has sold very well over the last three…

Read Along With Me: The Girl on the Train

I’ve been wanting to do a sort of “online book club” for a while, but never acted on it. February seems like as good a month as any to start. Basically, I’m picking a book a month to read. Just one book. The selection will vary, but I’ll be reading it, and sometime near the end of the month, I’ll write-up some thoughts about it. Some books will be romance. Some thrillers. Some classics.  Some nonfiction. And some just way…

What’s Up With WattPad

Let’s get real. I’m far from a perfect writer. On a good day, my prose is clunky, my characters flat, my scenes go nowhere, and my plots are a convoluted mess. Most days, I’m lucky eek out a few readable pages of a story. (Note: No one can beat up on themselves better that a writer. Truth is, we play with words for a living and often used them to slay ourselves. I consider myself a master at it. Even…

#NaturalLove: Let’s Chat!

One thing I love to do is talk to people.  It’s fun. Heck, I’ve made a career out of talking to people. It ‘s one of the things I do best. And now, I want to talk to you. On Monday night, I’m hosting the first five readers who sign up on a special Google Hangout Chat. If you’ve ever used Google Hangouts, then you’ll know why I am doing this.

#NaturalLove Release Week: Party Every Day

I’m not always the best at “the art of the pause.” What I mean by this is that, in the past, I didn’t always stop to celebrate accomplishments. When I was younger (a lot younger), I was sometimes so focused on goals and projects ahead of me that I didn’t ever take a moment to save the accomplishments I did make. It was always on to the next thing, then the next, and the next. Anyone who tried to tell…

#NaturalLove Release Day: Where I spent my time

It’s safe to say that this has been an exciting day for me. I worked on NATURAL LOVE for nine months. I spent hours in front of my computer typing the first draft, weeks revising, and months agonizing about the story. And now, after such a long time, it’s here. The book is ready for readers. Wow. People asked me along the way what I wanted to do on “release day”, and how I wanted to celebrate the book’s publication.…

With just two days to go until NATURAL LOVE‘s release, I thought I’d post a treat for you all today. Below is a never before published excerpt from the story. Enjoy. ______ She twisted toward me some more in the seat and propped her elbow on the console. Now, with her face only inches away from mine, she looked at me. “Do you think that’s weird?” “Depends on what you heard. I mean, if you heard—” “Stop it.” “Stop what?”…
