Swash_ornamentdanceinthewindDear Readers,

I’m a huge fan of soap operas. I remember rushing home from school while my grandmother and I watched the drama unfold on our television screens, and every Friday, the cliffhanger left us breathless. So when I was invited to take part in Rising Storm, I knew it was my chance to be involved in a ground-breaking idea readers would love! I hope you enjoy Episode 4, Dance in the Wind, revolving around Ginny and Logan’s struggle to find their love story, and of course… the secrets that may tear them apart. Get ready….the storm is coming!

Swash_ornamentdaringtodateagainDear Reader,

Ann is happy living alone, but a reawakening libido is making her peculiar. So, at 60, she scraps her assumptions and re-enters the dating world. Her daring, frank, slightly nutty story stretches from Montclair to Zimbabwe and takes on some meaty moral questions.

Kirkus Reviews writes “funny and introspective, filled with compassion and written without an ounce of affectation … a candid, breezy memoir which may inspire even annevansthe most dating-averse.”

I’m giving away five books. Write to me to win!
Swash_ornamentSecretsLakeRoad_cover_hi-res1Dear Reader,

Long hidden secrets disrupt the rhythms of a lakeside town when a seven-year-old girl goes missing from the community beach. As they search the lake, rescue workers dredge up bones from the past. Can its secrets be far behind? A mystery within a mystery, this haunting debut is about first love, lost innocence and the sometimes fragile, often turbulent, relationship between mothers and daughters.

Swash_ornamentForevermore-cover-with-prizes-400x600Dear Reader

As a recovered alcoholic, I wanted to play devil’s advocate and try to show how Edgar Allan Poe may have been sober (and murdered) when he died in 1849 at Baltimore, Maryland. The result was Forevermore, the first mystery in the popular Detective Pat O’Malley Historical and Steampunk Mystery Series. To my delight, this first mystery has garnered much praise. It was awarded the First Place Award in the Historical Mystery category in Chanticleer’s Clue Mystery competition, and it was a jummusgraveFinalist in the Best Digital Fiction Category of the Next Generation Book Awards. It was also selected by readers as the Book Club Choice at the international Noveltunity web site, and as a “book of the week” choice at Publishers Weekly’s
