The Branded Rose Prophecy is my longest book ever written. It comes in at 236,000 words. That’s long for anyone. It is nearly 4½ standard books packed together. I had a blast writing it, but it took me nearly a year, and I got very little else written that year. Still, it is one of
If you're into the King Arthur romance series, Once and Future Hearts, then I think you'll love Book 3! I had so much fun writing it. Not because it's a fun book, but because in Book 3, some of the epic, tragic events that thread through the Arthurian mythology are starting to form and influence the characters.
I'm currently suffering through the first cold I've had in years -- and not doing it very gracefully, I might add. It is sapping my energy. So I thought I would post this longish article about paranormal talents -- another of a huge group of guest posts on blogs that have evaporated in the meantime.
Today is the USA annual event, National PTSD Awareness Day. As a PTSD victim myself (and now fully recovered), I wanted to pause to acknowledge those who currently struggle with the disorder.

Authors can go to extraordinary lengths to build their fictional worlds. They have travelled the world, and spent decades in research.

I write a lot of sexy books. You may have noticed. 2013 was one of my peaks of productivity for books. I wrote and released nearly two dozen of them. And nearly every single one of them was an erotic romance. One can get awfully sick of describing sex after so many books, although I
Spoiler alert! I can’t talk about this without dropping spoilers all over the place. If you’re still waiting to catch up with Season 5, skip this post until later! ____ So, we binged on Season 5 of Game of Thrones, and it was wonderful. Although I was talking to a co-worker at my day job,
I have been very, very patient for over ten weeks now, waiting for the final episode of Game of Thrones to air. Neither of us has watched any of it, and we’ve turned into superior contortionists, twisting our way past major spoilers. Now we get our reward. We’re going to race around and get the
