The Goodreads giveaway for book one in the WAR series, WAR: Disruption ends this coming Saturday, August 29th.

Here’s the first paragraph:

PEERING BENEATH HIS blindfold, Max Lansing saw Ansgar Ziegler’s hand moving toward him holding a long, thin needle. Max braced himself against the wooden chair and tried once again to break his rawhide bonds. But he was trussed too tightly.

Sign up now so you can find out how Max gets out of this jam!

Another type of creativity

Being a creative person means that you can think up a solution to a shortage or other problem. MacGyver anyone?

In my case, it meant figuring out how to make that crucial first cup of coffee of the day after I discovered that there were no coffee filters.

My solution? Use a clean handkerchief. It worked remarkably well. Thanks for the donation, Dad!

#1LineWed – HOOKS (aka chapter endings)

I’m back! After a three-week hiatus, I’m again participating in #1LineWed on Twitter, sponsored by RWA’s Kiss of Death chapter.

Today’s theme is HOOKS (aka chapter endings). I just posted the hook from the end of Chapter One of WAR: Intrusion, the second book in my new romantic thriller series WAR. The hook for Chapter Two will go up by the end of the day.

I chose hooks from the first two chapters because the hooks that come later in the book contain spoilers. Today’s lines are also the first ones that are guaranteed to be in the final version of the book. There’s a possibility I might tweak them slightly, but I’m in the last stages of proofreading, which means no throwing away or completely rewriting lines.

If you’re not on Twitter, here’s what I posted the last time I participated in #1LineWed, on July 15th. That day, the theme was WATER. These lines are also from WAR: Intrusion. At that point, Intrusion was still a work in progress, aka WIP. I haven’t checked to see if these lines are still in the book or not. 😉


Lachlan wanted to feel her soft mouth under his more than he wanted his next sip of life-preserving water


She’d rather have his mouth against hers. He’d be hotter, and tastier, than this lukewarm, watery imitation of coffee.

Home Sweet Home

I’m finally back home after attending the RWA conference in New York City a few weeks ago. As always, I had a fantastic time, but the conference is nonetheless exhausting, so I’m still catching up on my sleep. I’m slowly going through my photos and newly accumulated business cards as I uncover them.

Here’s a shot from my hotel room window overlooking Times Square. I was surprised that even twelve floors up, a lot of the street-level noise still filtered through the windows. Great when it was a mellow jazz saxophone. Not so great when it was sirens and car horns and other dissonance. Can you tell I’m not a city girl? LOL
