April Showers Bring May…

…flowers? Nuh-uh, not where I live. Here in Minnesota, there’s still snow on the ground, and anything planted before Memorial Day will likely be a victim of a serial killing frost. Nope, if you grew up where I did, just south of the Canadian border, learning how to skate as soon as you walked and […]

Coastal Magic Reconnaissance!!

Over the years, I’ve heard great things about the Coastal Magic Convention. As it says at their website, Coastal Magic is “a super casual, urban fantasy, paranormal, and romance focused convention in Daytona Beach, Florida.” Casual? Great. Super casual? Even better. Florida, during the winter? Please, tell me more! As The Most Introverted Author on […]

Falling in Love Again…

I mentioned in my last blog post that I was hitting up my keeper shelf in an effort to break out of a writing slump. The writing slump is slowly easing, but reading-wise? I’m IN THE ZONE. I’m re-reading one of my favorite series for the upteenth time, and falling in love again. The objects […]

Care and Feeding of the Perpetually Peeved

I have a confession to make. This blog post is the first new thing I’ve written in over a month. My WIP, which I mentioned in my ENTHRALL ME release day interview last month, is stalled out at about the halfway point. I can’t bear to look at how long it’s been since I last […]

My Low-Key Book Release Plan

Those who read my blog post on redefining success realize I’m not necessarily apt to follow conventional publishing wisdom because I don’t publish frequently enough for conventional wisdom to apply. That said, on October 9 I’m releasing my first book in four years. Allow me to introduce Tia and Wyland! They say that opposites attract, […]

Redefining Success

In 2013 – wow, four years ago! – my traditional publisher and I parted ways, and the career I thought I was going to have took an unexpected turn. My contract for an Underbelly Chronicles paranormal trilogy was cancelled after two books. My publisher loved my work, but with over a year elapsing between book […]

Mother’s Day the Minnesota Way…AND FREE KINDLE E-BOOK!

Here in Minnesota, the walleye is our favorite freshwater fish. It’s considered such a delicacy that, regardless of temperature, the first day of walleye fishing season lures thousands of Minnesota anglers to their favorite lakes and fishing holes, trying to catch their limit. There’s good news and bad news. The good news? 100% ice out! […]

Stranger Than Fiction

Lord Byron. Mark Twain. The Beastie Boys’ Mike D. Over the years, these artists, and so many others, have made the observation that truth, or life, is stranger than fiction. I was recently whapped upside the head by this concept as I lightly revised and prepared the books in my Underbelly Chronicles series for indie […]
