I first started blogging back in 2007, before I got published, and I used talk about my life. My family. Trying to fit writing into all my obligations. And then I got published, and the blogging slowed, and when I did, it was all writing related. But I was watching […]

You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something. So that’s […]

It means what?

I’m over at the Contemporary Romance Cafe today, talking about what I did last week. And what I didn’t do.   Also, one of my favorite bloggers/reviewers, Shayna Renee, is celebrating her birthday on her blog by giving away signed paperbacks, including a copy of my Private Deceptions.  Stop by […]
