Consolation Day 2015

A few days ago (March 26th, to be exact), calls went out to several dozen very talented writers and authors in the romance community. I’m pretty sure this is not news to you. That same day, hundreds of folks who had entered did not receive a call. I admit, I was one of those. Woe is me. If you’re stopping by […]

However, for my latest book, Acceptable Risk, I took my characters home to Texas. And by home, I mean the Lone Star state is both their home and mine.   My family moved to San Antonio when […]

What is a key ingredient in making a story suspenseful and thrilling? Pacing. What can make or break an author? Pacing. And knowing one’s limits. Years ago, one of […]
