This is a great reader site, so have a look at all that they do for readers and writers.

My book cover, below, has garnered a lot of attention. Books and Benches review said – “Good thriller!

It tells the story of Chloe, her son Davey, and Police Detective Ross Cullen. Chloe discovered she never knew the man, Jeff, who she had married . . . he simply vanished from her life! She tried to move on, but danger still lurked around her. That’s when Ross, who is investigating her husband’s disappearance, enters her life and comes to her rescue. Will he be able to help her? Will he discover the true identity of Jeff? Together they embark on a journey of discovery, of lies, and secrets.”


More snow, and Book Release soon, watch for it

Arrived home from Hawaii to more snow. This is our driveway. The other photo is the flood plain below our house. It is frozen over solid, and all the ducks and Canada geese are huddled on the snow bank on the other side, waiting for it to thaw.

Working on Book Four, of The Last War Series. Called Weapon of Tyrants, I will have the cover release soon. Watch for it!

Hawaiian stop, Time to recharge


I am in Hawaii, having a chance to recharge my batteries. It’s been a busy year, and it took a good week to unwind before I began to relax and really enjoy myself. Nothing like taking a break, but especially in such a fabulous place and climate.

Have I been doing any writing? Not much. Going to the gym every second day, and taking a swim every day, except when the wind blew so strongly the waves were fierce and dangerous. Otherwise, into that fabulous water.

I’ll be back in time for the end of the month. Hope you have a fabulous rest of January.

January blues -Christmas letdown :)

Here I am, back to work after cleaning up the mess from the Christmas and New Year’s celebration. I’m always a little down when it’s over, because it’s such a fun time of year. However, pull up my socks and get to work (pulling up my socks here – no they aren’t new ones from under the tree).

There are lots of things to look forward to this year. I have Book Four of The Last War Series coming out in March. I’m just working on the cover with my designer. It’s a milestone book for the series, as the next war is about to begin. Selanna’s brother makes a very fine hero for the story.

Moon Shine is going well, thank you to my fans. Talk soon.
