Today's post is not about characters in my books. It is about who authors write about as heroes and why readers love them. Because let's face it, do the men we know on a day to day basis ever measure up to the men writers portray as heroes in their books? I doubt anyone is… Continue reading TGIF…Heroes

What are You Reading Thursday?

I began a new book this week. The Seduction of a Duke by Donna MacMeans. It isn't a new release. I picked it up at the Lori Foster Author Reader Get Together in 2010 where I met Donna. She signed the book for me. I began reading the first few pages while I was there,… Continue reading What are You Reading Thursday?

She showed us how her wacky brain works and how she figured out how to successfully write a book. She's a mathematician so she is big into numbers,… Continue reading Play Date Saturday


Again this week I'm going to talk about a hero that I did not have an inspirational image. This novella was written before I started pinning on Pinterst. However, that doesn't make John Franklin from my novella Ava any less heroic. In fact, John is probably unlike most heroes. He has a passion for reading… Continue reading TGIF…Heroes

I revisited (which means I reread since I wrote it) Victory's Gate. It was my first published story, but it is a very sweet and endearing one. The plight of the characters was touching. The situations were real and I was amazed at how much I had forgotten about it in the six years since… Continue reading What are You Reading Thursday?
