Vivian Arend

Ideas are funny things. As a writer, I’ve often found that the best ideas have come when I’ve let things roll. Trying to box in and plot too much, or plan in advance doesn’t work for me. Even while on holidays I’m a more “go with the flow” kinda person. […]

Vivian Arend returns…in Australia!

While I’ve been ploughing through all the things I ignored while in New York (and preparing for New York), I got another lovely review for Tangled Past — this time from Chris over at Night Owl Romance: “Dealing with the morality of the 1800s added to the suspense, and the […]

Home, Sweet Home…Alabama?

I’m helping Vivian Arend celebrate her tenth release, Turn It Up, with Samhain Publishing over on Facebook today. In order to make sure everyone is up to speed with my Hauberk series for my upcoming release Deliberate Deceptions, which is book 3 in the series, I’m giving away an  e-copy […]

Want to win Personal Protection?

Give a hug

Is It Real? When I started writing Falling, Freestyle, I had a few goals. I wanted to have a contemporary love story set during the winter in the mountains. It was going to include skiing, or snowboarding, and I wanted to write a friends-to-lovers situation. What ended up happening has […]

Vivian Arend: Is It Real?

I’m a plotter. Who knew? Not me.  Oh, I’ve always been a list maker. My desk has a half dozen lists on it at the moment, mostly in the form of short lists on sticky notes: “Things I need to organize my desk” is the one that stands out the […]

Lists vs plot bunnies

How well do you know your movies or books? Vivian Arend and I were scheduled with back-to-back posts over on the Samhain blog. She’s up today and I’m up for tomorrow. So we decided to get together and have some fun.  Today Viv’s giving you some lines from my favorite […]

Quick Name That ….

I was in a chat with Vivian Arend yesterday as we were plotting out my next FIVE books. Yes, you read that right. 5. Five. According to “” that’s “pet” in Croatian, cinque in Italian, cinco in Spanish, Pięć in Polish, and vijf in Dutch. (Are those right?)  These five […]

Forgotten Treasure

At the bottom of Vivian Arend’s post yesterday I mentioned different ways you could win one of several prizes Viv has up for grabs. One way is to post pictures of your favorite cowboys. Yum. Man Candy. Now, I’m not entering Viv’s contest, but who can pass up the opportunity […]


Thanks to Leah for another chance to drop in. When my first story sold I was so excited—and completely unaware of how this sudden obsession of mine would translate into my ‘real life’. When the first cover arrived I nearly fell out of chair—GORGEOUS, I think you’ll agree. Only suddenly […]

Vivian Arend’s Family Project

You may have noticed I’ve been MIA on the blog a lot this past week. I’ve been head-down frantically working on revising my WIP because I knew I had edits coming down the pipeline for Texas Tangle.  Well, the edits have arrived and I’m now on deadline.  So expect me […]
