What story I’m working on: Waking for Winter

What I’m editing/marketing: Just finished editing Rising for Autumn and shipped it off to the editor. Fingers crossed, guys! And now that my editing agenda is freed up, I can tackle rewriting Chasing Fate into a YA urban fantasy!!!

Line of the week:

So, so complicated that phrase. It had everything to do with them, with how bright their flames burned when they were together and how their fire threatened to consume survival and reason alike. The aching intensity he inspired in her had reached the fervor of consumption to the point she wasn’t sure she’d ever be able to extricate herself. In their time apart, she’d grown. Fallen down, scraped her knees, and fucked up, sure. But she’d learned to stand on her own and grew into a woman who could fight her own battles. Had she stayed back then, she had risked not only losing him, but herself in the process.

I split my time writing and working my day job as a massage therapist. If it’s a creative pursuit though, chances are I’ve dabbled in it. Hell, I’ve played around with soapmaking, beer brewing, cupcake baking, tea blending and everything else under the midday sun. At the end of the day, my constant is always reading, writing and editing. I’m an Aries-Taurus cusp–which to any astrology buffs should tell you plenty. I hit the East Coast convention circuit pretty hard and chances are, you can find me vending for Solstice Brews while simultaneously promoting my books.
