In her website bio, she refers to herself as “secret agent mom”. Today she’s “secret agent writer” since she had to hide to write this post. (Maybe where she’s hiding is TMI? Nah, I’ve had to resort to similar measures. And places.)
Alas, I wish I could say I’m sick because I kill people in my books (though I’ve done that) or because I have a particularly deviant mind (um, no, can’t argue that either), but the truth is, I am just out and out ill. Infected. Gross, to be perfectly honest. As is the case of most mothers, my son brought home plague from school. He likes to bring one home at least once a quarter, but this one is truly epic. Like, cough until you’re about to lose consciousness epic.
You’re probably thinking this qualifies as way too much information, right?
Yeah, it probably does. Sorry about that. The reason I bring it up is that regardless of sickness, us odd little author types still gotta keep up with the responsibilities. (Though, please, forgive me any typos, vision is a tad blurry at the moment.) And just like every one else, we gotta suck it up and keep going. But thankfully, I am also possessed of an awesome hubby, who at this very moment is watching our twins despite being sick himself while I hide in the bathroom to write this post. See, the girls are in destroy mode–if you don’t have kids, the destruction mostly applies to your nerves, but your stuff takes a hard hit too–so I’m not entirely sure how much time I have. Consider this Secret Agent Post!
But, while I’m hiding, huddled here in the dark, I’m going to tell you all about my husband and why he’s a romance writer’s fantasy. And not just the obvious stuff either. (See comment about deviant mind) He watches independent films with me. He finds me music for inspirational purposes. He cooks and tries to eat what I make for him. He also makes the most valiant effort not to ralph afterward, too, so bonus points for him.
Mostly, I just love how he inspires me all by himself. Quietly strong, always supportive. I’m pretty sure I’d have broken irreparably without him years ago. In the two times my world has shattered, he’s the one that has always held me close until I was back together again. You just can’t write heroes like him. Something always falls short.
So do me a favor. Share with me your favorite things about your favorite hero–real or imagined. A random winner will be chosen from the comments for their pick of any ebook in my backlist. 🙂

Nothing twists you up quite like love…
When she interrupts what looks like a tryst in her fiancé’s office, former heiress Krista James has only one thought: “It’s over!” True, they both signed a marriage contract that didn’t include a love clause. But she’ll be damned if she gives the two-timer the satisfaction of knowing she gave up her heart along with her hand.
How to say goodbye to a man who makes her forget her own name in bed, and all her principles everywhere else? Simple. Run.
CPA-on-the-rise David Ellison thinks everything is perfect. Perfectly planned, perfectly ordered, perfectly moving forward. Until he arrives late—again—for a lunch date. Suddenly he has a broken engagement, a guilty receptionist and a missing fiancée.
Tracking her down is easy. She’s traded their honeymoon tickets for a luxury holiday for one. Reasoning with her? Impossible. Especially since they always seem to end up in bed, in the shower, on the floor…everywhere but at an understanding.
David didn’t follow his woman all the way to Tahiti to return home empty-handed. To get her back, he’s even prepared to empty his heart of all his secrets.
Question is…is he prepared for hers?
Warning: Emotionally repressed, sexually gifted accountant on the loose in Tahiti, intent on seducing his lady back into his life and completely redefining the phrase “awesome lei”. Mai Tais and fresh ice recommended to counter the extreme sexual heat.
