Hi, and thanks for taking a peek at my webpage! I’m a paranormal (dark fantasy)  and romantic suspense author.  Since all of my books have a mystery at the core, I love writing in both genres.


Vandermire Vampire Series



In mid October my husband and I went to Universal Florida for the Halloween Horror Night RIP Tour and to celebrate a landmark anniversary. LOL (not saying which one). Can’t tell you how much fun it was. I screamed lots. Not only did screaming add to the fun, but I figure it was an applause for the horror night actors. And…. ahem….. sometimes you just can’t help it. Let’s put it this way—my throat was sore at the end. SO—MUCH—FUN!

I also met a young man wearing a vampire bat on his lanyard in one of the stores. His features were so cool he could almost be a character in one of my books. Maybe some day. . . . He was kind enough to pose with me. Hi Kodi! It was nice to meet you in Orlando.



I’m currently working on the second book in a three book series. I’m happy with my progress, and as usual, my characters are throwing curve balls at me when I least expect it. I love it when they do that.


Jess Vandermire Vampire Hunter Series


Book 4 in the Jess Vandermire Vampire Hunter Series:  Grave Expectations was released on August 31st.   I love the new covers, don’t you?

I recently got home from welcoming my newest granddaughter to the family.  She was born on July 1st in Australia, and I’m sure I don’t have to tell you she’s beautiful.  My daughter and family are doing well.

On the long-long-long flights down-under and back, I managed to be quite productive.  And, a few days ago, I finished book 5 of the Jess Vandermire series. I am currently in the revision process before I start book 6 in November.  Yikes, you say?  Yep.  I’m challenged to write three book in one year.  Fingers crossed.

I met the loveliest lady while I was in Perth, Australia after I left my laptop on the bus.  I know. . . talk about panic time.  When I realized what I’d done, I stopped in the middle of the sidewalk and uttered my panic.  Lucy was in front of me and she immediately stopped and asked what was wrong.  When I told her, she said, without hesitation… “My car is right there, maybe we can catch the bus.”  WOW!  How many people would do that?  Long story short:  We actually caught up to the bus where another kind person had handed in my bag, so I was able to retrieve it immediately.  Most of the panic stemmed from the fact that book five, which was three-quarters finished, was on that laptop.  Lucy and I are now best-buds.  We got together for coffee at The Dome http://www.domecoffees.com.au/ before I left Australia, and we’ll get together next time I go back to visit.

Happy fall everyone.  It’s nearly time for Cortland apples in my neck of the woods.  I’ll be making apple pies, crisps, etc. in between writing.  The house will smell lovely I’m sure.
