Happy Loving Day

Today is a monumental day for mixed couples. Loving Day-celebrated because of a ruling in 1967 that allowed mixed couples to marry. Interracial marriages have been around for years and only became illegal in the US in 1664, but making it illegal didn't stop people from continuing to get married. http://listverse.com/2011/01/25/10-fascinating-interracial-marriages-in-history/ In recent months, mixed couples appeared [...]

3 ways to use public speaking to promote your book

Public Speaking is a talent some people take to like a fish to water while others, like myself, had to work at it. My previous boss encouraged me to speak at meetings and events, however most times I chickened out and deferred to him. When he left the company I was forced to do speeches and [...]

When I first started writing people always asked why I didn't write about Cayman. The truth? I write about where the stories and characters take me. I was pleasantly surprised when one of my stories (yes, it did decide) happened in Grand Cayman. Before I knew it, I had a four book series on my [...]

Why I hated writing my heroine

I like writing characters with sharp wit and humor who fall desperately in love (after a whole lot of trial and error), so imagine my surprise when the hero of my latest release Deadly Bloodlines turned out to be dark, brooding, and down right unlikeable. I tried to lighten her up, but she wouldn't have it. Jeez! Didn't she know [...]

3 tips for breaking out of your writing comfort zone

Before publishing my first book, I had the crazy idea I'd make a name for myself publishing short stories in magazines and contests. What a  joke! Writing a short story was more challenging than a novel. I had several offers to participate in anthologies, but fear of my limitations with short stories stopped me each time. The last time I was [...]

Why I wish my life was a suspense/thriller

I recently read a blog by fellow author, Brea Brown who gave me the idea for this blog post. Hers was geared towards Chick Lit romance because that's what she writes. I write romantic suspense so mine is a lot more fun! Sorry, Brea. :-)   People are often surprised that I ended up writing [...]

3 benefits of being a romance judge

My main reason was to give back to InD'tale Magazine who do so much to help educate and promote authors. The big surprise was the [...]
