First Chapter of My Forthcoming Novel is Up on My Patreon!

I posted the first chapter of my forthcoming novel, A Light in the Dark, on my Patreon! ❤️

If you love my posts of our kids and enjoy my writing, please consider signing up to become a patron! ❤️ I use my Patreon funds every month to buy food for our kids, and it’s appreciated more than I can say. ❤️

I’m always trying to add extra perks to my Patreon, like an e-copy of Hot Blooded (still available on there, by the way!), behind the scenes looks and chapters far in advance of publication. ❤️ I’m hoping that my depression will lessen a bit with the spring, and I’ve got a lot of ideas for treats and fun Patrons-only treasures. I’m always excited about the possibilities!

Thank you so much for your support. ❤️

My new audiobook, MEMORY, is out now!

I am so, so, so thrilled to announce that the INCREDIBLE audiobook of Memory is out now!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Narrated by the incomparable TJ Richards, the story is brought to life in flawless perfection, thanks to her incredible talents. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ I am over the moon with the production, and I know you will be, too. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Piper once believed she’d found her happily-ever-after in Estella.

Until Estella left.

Piper and Estella met when they were kids. Estella was rich and spoiled, Piper was poor and curious, and – in each other – the two girls found an unexpected friendship. Year after year went by as they grew up together, growing closer and closer as time passed, until Piper realized that she loved Estella more than anything in the universe.

The day Piper told Estella she loved her was the day Estella walked out the door, never to return again…

Or so Piper thought.

Years have passed, and they’re both grown women living opposite lives on opposite sides of the country. All they have between them are the memories of a young love that was so beautiful and profound that it changed their lives forever…

But a chance encounter pulls the two women together once more.

Does true love exist? Or are some scars too deep to ever heal?

Get Memory here!

JUST RELEASED: HOT BLOODED is out now and available to read for FREE on Kindle Unlimited!

If she falls in love, there’ll be hell to pay…

Billie Cross isn’t afraid of anything. A quick witted, sarcastic trouble maker, she knows how to rock a good lipstick, a pair of heels…and a sharp dagger. Billie has one of the most dangerous—and secretive—jobs in the world, but someone’s got to hunt demons. And Billie is very, very good at it.

But a random run-in on the streets of Pittsburgh has Billie’s head out of the game. Because she can’t stop thinking about the mysterious, smoldering woman in the leather jacket with the wicked grin: Jet. Billie can’t get tangled up in a relationship; it’s too dangerous. But a one-night stand sure as hell sounds like a good time. Only thing is, one night turns into something much, much more. Billie swore she’d never let anyone close to her ever again: she was done with getting her heart broken, and yet now she’s fallen for Jet with her whole heart.

But if Billie finds out who—and what—Jet really is, there’ll be more than a broken heart on the line. There’ll be hell to pay.

$7.99 or available to read for FREE in Kindle Unlimited!

What’s Up with Me! ❤❤❤

Hello, dear friends! I’m sorry I haven’t updated in a hot minute. ❤ Since Memory came out, I’ve been suffering from agonizing, heartbreaking writer’s block. Writer’s block is different for every writer, and how it manifests is different for every writer, too. For me, it’s very tied in with my depression. I’ve started over thirty books at this point, written many thousands of words in each one…and then I abandon them because I don’t think they’re good enough. I don’t think I’m good enough. Rinse, repeat. It’s…pretty horrible.

I’m working hard trying to work through it. I’m doing my best. Thank you for your patience. ❤

But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been up to a million other things! My wife and I re-opened our beloved shop, Glamourkin. We made these enchanted little pendants for almost a decade, then closed up shop a few years ago, completely burned out. But the magic never left us, and we’ve started it back up again. It is so, so soothing to create again. Please go take a peek around–there’s original art jewelry, original art and lots of goodies. ❤

We’ve also been working pretty hard on our antique booth at our gorgeous local antique shop. ❤ I volunteer there once a week, and I’ve been posting a lot of my vintage looks at my vintage style Instagram–give a look if you’re so inclined! ❤❤❤

Last but not least, we RESCUED TWO KITTENS!!!!! ❤❤❤ Zelda found them in our backyard, half-starved without their mother (poor darling ❤). Since we lost Emily and Roane in the last few months from old age, we decided to keep them. ❤ Their names are Magic and Banjo, and you can follow along with their adventures on my Facebook!

I think that’s all the news that’s fit to print. ❤ I hope you’ve been well. ❤ I will try to update as soon as I can with some good news on the writing front. Please wish me luck. ❤
