Saints and Sinnas CoverIt’s true. When you’re really good at your job, people want more and more and more. That can be a curse and a blessing. It’s a blessing because you have more opportunities. It’s a curse because there’s more pressure, more responsibility, and potentially more danger to screw everything up. Continue reading “When you’re that good, everyone wants a piece”

The rise of the side character – the people you want to steal the narrative scene

I love side characters. I love them so much, I have side characters who’ve made an appearance in more than one of my books. It’ not hard, since I tend to write about families or groups of friends, each person getting their own story. For me, side characters are integral to the story. It’s like … Continue reading The rise of the side character – the people you want to steal the narrative scene

You know he cares, but when someone trustworthy confirms it, that’s special

Saints and Sinnas CoverWell, the world’s still crazy. Between the ‘rona and the demonstrations still happening all over the world in support of the #blacklivesmatter movement, it pretty much seems like 2020 is going to be a wash. Like, seriously. We need a global reboot at this point. Afterward maybe everyone will be healthy, happy, fair and just. Continue reading “You know he cares, but when someone trustworthy confirms it, that’s special”

Sometimes even a fabulous new lover can’t offer as much comfort as a good old girlfriend

Saints and Sinnas CoverThey say you only need a few good friends, and I agree. Actually the old saying says you only need two, and that’s just in case one dies, but that’s a bit much…lol Friends are wonderful! Especially old friends.

Sex is great, but the characters, man… Wait. That doesn’t sound right LOL

Saints and Sinnas CoverThe past few years I’ve started to skip over the pages and pages of sex I typically get from my favorite authors. I’ve been veering away from the pages and pages of sex I used to write too. I know, I know, not what you want to read in a romance writer’s blog, right? But it’s true. I still absolutely love a good love story, and sex is part of that. But the story is more important to me these days than the sex. Continue reading “Sex is great, but the characters, man… Wait.
