My daughter started kindergarten this week, bringing in a new era. My baby is officially a student. I admit it. I cried a little. My son is clearly NOT thrilled that summer is [...]

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 [...]

A Deadly Location – Writing an island

I love Murder She Wrote and subject my son and husband to watching it whenever it's on. My favorite shows are the ones set in her small home town because they show how murder can happen anywhere and usually done by someone you least expect: your friendly neighbor, or someone you've known your whole life. When people find [...]

For the Love of Jazz as a Movie

I love movies! Who doesn't right? So what better way to complete my debut novel than to have it turned into a movie? Don't rush out and get those movie tickets just yet. Although it a goal, it's one I don't plan to pursue strongly until 2015. This post is just for fun. I'm going [...]

Starting August, I'm doing another writing challenge to finish my story Deadly Bloodlines, book 1 in my Deadly Series. I'm at 48k words and aiming to get to [...]
