Also this month, I’ll be attending my CT. Romance Writer’s yearly FICTION FEST conference where I’ll be hosting a silent auction fund raiser for the chapter and presenting a workshop on the Do’s and Don’ts of Self-Publishing. It promises to be a great weekend of learning, sharing, and fun connecting with my writer peeps. Wish me luck!

Don’t forget to check out my Events/calendar page for upcoming signings and events in October, such as the Granville Harvest Fair, the Boston Book Festival, and a few local library appearances!

No worries, it won’t be all fun and games. I’m making good time on my second installment of the SAVAGE CINDERELLA Novella Series, LOST BOYS. I’ll have a cover to show you very soon. If you haven’t read the first novella, FINDING HOPE, it’s a great action-packed follow-up to Brinn and Justin’s story in SAVAGE CINDERELLA. If you like action/adventure/thriller/romance, this series is for you. Suitable for age 13+ readers, I consider these books suspenseful “clean teen” with mature themes teens and adult readers alike can enjoy.

Keep reading, keep writing, and be well!

Blessings for an abundant fall harvest…whatever kind of “garden” you’ve been cultivating this summer.







I love hearing from readers!
