One Month and Counting….

Cross posted from Cera duBois…. Today starts the one-month countdown to the release of A Hunter’s Angel… I’m beyond excited. I’m beyond scared shitless. And I’m beyond overwhelmed. But this is (to steal a line my alter ego Sara might put in one of my Westerns) this is one rodeo I wouldn’t want to miss,…

Getting Back into the Groove

It seems since forever since I wrote anything for Writing Wednesday… FOREVER. This spring has been brutal. I found myself being extra busy with work, busy with stuff around the house, and not writing much. Not reading much either… The good news, I signed three contracts since mid-April. Book two of my Hunter’s Dagger Series,…

What Shall I Call It?

Cross-posted at Cera duBois. Have you ever asked yourself this question about the title of your story? Sometimes coming up with the right one can be as painful as coming up with the story.

My Favorite Movies

Cross-posted from Cera duBois On Sunday night, the prestigious Academy Awards aka Oscars were held in Hollywood. I didn’t watch them. Not really interested, truth be told. In fact, I was a little peeved because Once Upon a Time wasn’t on. But all this talk of Best Picture got me thinking about my top five…

Love Letters

Cross-posted from Cera duBois In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’m taking a break from talking about fiction writing and do a little reminiscing.  When my husband and I met, almost twenty-five years ago, he had one more semester of college left. I had three and half years. We lived in different parts of the state,…
