I like to torture people

Yes I said it! But, before you reach for the phone to dial 911 it's not what you think. Over the years, I've written poetry. Really bad poetry. Aside from my fellow classmates in high school and a few friends on Facebook, very few people have had the torture privilege of reading my works. Since April [...]

Book covers! Some authors love creating them whether that means using graphics or coming up with ideas. I float between loving it and running down the street screaming "no" at the top of my lungs.

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 [...]

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 [...]
