Reserved the space for the seminar at Hotel Mead in Wisconsin Rapids last night. We set the date for Saturday, Dec. 6th from 1-5pm. Midway through we’ll have a coffee break with the most yummiest cranberry bread on the planet. I can’t wait to share everything in the manual, which is based on a series of workshops and articles I had written a while back. Someone mentioned turning them into a book and along the way to see how that might look, the idea that this would be an awesome seminar began to form and so here we are–from idea to reality. Pretty cool, I think, considering that’s the core theme behind Discovering Your Inner Novel.
I’ve got the agenda all set below, so just scroll down for that. The registration form is complete now too, so I’ll start taking them right away as there’s not much time to get the word out. Deadline to register is Dec. 1st but if you register before November 15th you’ll get a free 1-hour phone consultation.
You can register by email or by snail mail and cash, check or paypal may be used. Looking forward to an exciting event with you all!

I’ve been wanting to do this forever! Now that I’m in bed with pneumonia, I finally gave myself permission to just play a little. Hope you enjoy!Makemezombie.com really did all the hard work here!
So I had surgery on March 5th… but that was just the beginning! I ended up back in the hospital for IV fluids from dehydration, then got a head cold, after that I injured my back, then ended up with kidney stones. So, for the whole month of March, I’ve been through one thing after another physically. Talk about frustrating! Well, I’m getting back to full health slow but sure. I’m just battling the last of kidney stones, then I’ll be on my way toward normal.
Just wanted to update everyone who may be wondering where I’ve been. My guess is that this is the biggie for 2014 and after I’m all well, I get to enjoy the rest of the year in good health! I hope this spring will be a wonderful time for all of us. :)

Just a quick note to let everyone know the new cover for Redemption is finally live on Amazon.com. I’ve set up a special promotion that will begin in February! I can’t wait to see this book have the same sort of success that My Biker Bodyguard has. Please take a moment to spread the word about this for me :)
On a personal note, I’ve been dieting and working out like a crazy gal and recently lost over 20 pounds–however, counting backward from my heaviest weight to today, it’s been almost 50 pounds I’ve lost–and it feels awesome! I love my kick boxing classes and walking with my best friend. Very cool stuff!
I’m looking forward to Love is Murder with Gale Borger in 2 weeks!
Let me know what y’all think!
It’s here! It’s here :)
I’m thrilled to share my new release with you! :)
Something old, something new, and a kevlar vest, too!
Mina Jackson needs to reclaim her life and she has her murdered father’s gun to help her. Only problem? The man she targets turns out to not only be kind, patient, and considerate, but sexy as hell.
Robert Carson is jolted out of his humdrum life in finance when a beautiful green-eyed woman kidnaps him at gunpoint. When he finds out who she is, he can’t forgive himself for allowing her to reach this desperate point.
From Chicago to Vegas and back again they’ll fight for their lives and possibly, a happily-ever-after that will leave them both breathless.
Thanks so much for your phenomenal support everyone!
