Fun research

Work continues on my next novel, The Ocean Between Us, which will open a brand-new series! (I haven’t put the Alaia Chronicles series aside, it’s just percolating for a while. 🙂 ) A short summary of Ocean: When an exiled and shipwrecked prince crawls onto the shore of a cursed ex-mermaid, their sizzling passion drives the ancient Greek gods and goddesses into war. Psst: Wanna hear when it comes out and get sneak

Southern Colorado’s Rocky Mountains

I’m a mountain girl. Something about alpine vistas makes me breathe deep while my heart quivers. That’s why I’ve yearned for Colorado since my first visit 20-odd years ago, and why I now live on the top of a mountain in the Rockies. My honey and I (currently known as Dr. 4×4 🙂 ) were able to take a couple of quick getaways in my adopted home state. Colorado is delish.

Love at Sea

The sea is often a lovely and very romantic place. I’ve had some wonderful experiences on the ocean, like a pod of dolphins just outside my ship’s cabin window swimming and jumping alongside the ship for an hour. One of the fantasy romance novels I have in the hopper (working title: The Ocean Between Us) has me thinking about the ocean and all the life within it. Seeing the dolphins

Book Covers I Love and Miss

Book cover art can be evocative, intriguing, and delightful—or confusing, dull, and even off-putting. I’ve had covers on both ends of the spectrum. (Live and learn, fortunately.) Here was my very first book cover, from the fall of 2010. Looking at it now, nearly three years later, I still love the idea of it—the beautiful blues, the arched window, the exotic city outline, the streaks across

Scroogy McHumbug finds a wee bit of holiday spirit

Yes, I’ve probably earned that nickname. It’s not that I hate the holidays—it’s more like I’ve been indifferent to them. I’m self-employed, which just means I have freedom to work all the time. (No, it’s not always a good thing.) Weekends are often much like weekdays to me, and coming as I did from a small and not-that-religious family, holidays weren’t a big deal to me.

Wheeee, a new fantasy romance! SWORD AND LUTE (Alaia Chronicles)

Waaay back in February (heh), I released Swords and Scimitars, a historical fantasy short story about the origins of the realm of Kad. (When the immortal twin brothers Kismet and Taso fought over an enchanted sword, tragedy ensued for them both. The guilt of the fight drove Kismet into the realm of Kad, where he became its first sultan and redeemed himself through love. If you
