Bug versus Windshield

My son puked on the bus I drive this morning, and I had no paper towels. A crack formed in the bus windshield and slowly lengthened as I drove. I managed to shrink a favorite top to my daughter’s teenaged-size (she was thrilled). It poured buckets and my parked car ended up an oasis in […]

This day rocks!

Today has been a killer day, not only because two great writers (Lisa Burstein and Jim Hill) agreed to partake in the Blog-Tour-Writing-Process-Thing (thanks Trisha Leaver!), but I also finished STORMFRONT. I could actually run around screaming at the top of my lungs, but I would freak out the neighbors . . . though they […]

My Writing Process Blog Tour

I am taking part in The Writing Process Blog Tour, which is a cool way to introduce myself to other authors and readers that may not normally stumble over to my blog. Each author will offer brief insights into their writing processes and, in turn, they will introduce you to more authors. I was invited […]

The Barnstable Patriot and Undertow.

Friday could have sucked. It could have sucked because I was dumb enough to blurt out, “SURE I’ll drive the band to Rhode Island,” when I really needed to grind through STORMFRONT.

Book Review – THESE BROKEN STARS

Only once in a while, does a book shave a few decades off my aged brain and cause me to run around screaming like a teenager, out of my mind obsessed. I tell everyone about it, down to the random lady counting her coupons in front of me at Market Basket. Really – I did, though […]

The Write Space

The other day my daughter came into my office (okay – more like a walk-through, jammed between my kids’ bedrooms and our great room) and said, “Wow – your office looks worse than my locker.” Ummm . . . why yes. Yes, it does. Which got me thinking (no, not about cleaning it). I thought […]

Self-Published Marketing

Another writer once asked me why, OH WHY, did I bother with live models? They asked, “Isn’t that time-consuming? Expensive? What if the photos don’t come out right? What if the models don’t understand their characters’ emotions?” The questions went on and on . . . I simply responded, “Well, first of all, what would […]

To them all, I cannot say THANK YOU enough :) Today, I am sharing some pictures, reviews, and media from the past month. UNDERTOW released on October 13th. […]
