Happy Friday! I’m excited to turn my blog over to the wonderful Stephanie Haefner, my fellow Western New York author, whose new romance, Try Me on for Size, was published by Simon and Schuster earlier this month. Take it away, Stephanie! Read the rest of this entry
Yeppers, we got us a book birthday!
Busy tomorrow—that’s Thursday, July 17? Because I’ve got a little sumpin’ going on you might be interested in. Read the rest of this entry
Why? Because this is me:
I know, I know. Believe me, I know. Read the rest of this entry
My, how time flies. In only 10 days, Picture This, the second in my small-town Marsden rom com series, the follow-up to Down on Love, publishes! Squee!
I’ve got some plans to mark the occasion, so check back here in a few for all the details!
In the meantime, you can preorder Picture This here!
I’ve been tagged by the wonderful author Tracy Krimmer to participate in the Very Inspiring Blogger Award/Tour! That means I get to share seven interesting things you might not know about me. At least, I hope they’re interesting.
But, you know, while authors put all sorts of exciting adventures in their books, in reality they’re sitting around in their pajamas with their hair sticking up in all directions, drinking coffee and freaking out about their sales numbers and whether anybody’s going to notice how badly spackled-over that most recent gaping plot hole is.
Still, this is my best effort. If these facts are boring as *#&!, give me a verbal smack upside the head in the comments, and I’ll try to come up with truly intriguing bits of information, okay? Okay. Here we go… Read the rest of this entry
Here we go again. In just about four weeks, my fourth book will be released. It’s called Picture This, and it’s the second in my small-town rom com series, following Down on Love, which came out last November.

Hey, you’ve gotta break a few eggs to make that fabulous flan, right? Okay, I might be kidding myself, but that’s my theory on why my messy process actually produces books. In any case, welcome to the Writing Process Blog Hop! I was tagged by Lori Schafer last week (read her entry here) and I’ll tag another author at the end of this post.
Want to know how and why I write? Put on your gaiters and let’s wade in! Read the rest of this entry
Seriously, I often feel like poor shaggy-haired, sick-heroine-tending, grilled-cheese-making Mason gets overlooked in my…oeuvre (should I have included a pretension alert before I used that word? oh well—too late), so it’s wonderful to see one of my favorite heroes get some love.
And blog hops are catnip to us. We can never resist a good blog hop; we grab on like we’re latching onto the end of the conga line as it passes our table at a boring wedding.
This is the one I’m going to be boogying to shortly: my writing process. Tagged by Lori Schafer (see her post about her writing process today!) Tagging Seth Herman in my blog post on June 23. I…koff…was supposed to tag three people but I can’t find anyone else! If you’re an author and you want in, give me a shout and I’ll add you.
