What story I’m currently working on: Lol, massive slowdown this week, but due to reasons. I hit 34k on Forged Decisions, which is all sorts of fuck yeah! The story is hitting some bigger scenes, which I’m looking forward to tackling, but I had some super important interruptions. I should be back on track by next week.

What I’m editing/marketing: Well, well, well. My editor and I just pulled out an insane three day editing binge–three weeks of work crammed into that span, but Forged Alliances is ramping up and looking better than ever. My Steampunk with a Twist story is floating along, and I’m down to the last couple passes on it. I decided to start sprucing up an old YA winter fairytale as well, which should be awesome. I also got my critiques back on the first three chapters of my Asgard Lounge story, plus have been tweaking the synopsis and blurb. I will have the proposal package ready to send by next week. On an exciting front, the Airship Named Desire audio book is now available here!! OMG guys, it’s so good.

Teaser of the week:

-As he settled into Park, he winked at her. “Maybe your wolf pups are scared to tangle with a strong woman, but darling, I_d devour you.”

Line of the week:

Finn had tried to gradually fall for Raven over years of affection, touch, and time, but he knew deep in his gut, he’d never brushed the surface of what he should be feeling. However, with Navi, it was no quiet stream or gentle footsteps. He fell for her like the sudden drop of a cliff face, with the fury of the rapids, and with the bone deep awareness that this woman would be branded on his bones for the rest of his life.



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.
