Enjoy the Simple Things


Enjoy the simple things!!!

The older I get, the more I realize that happiness is sometimes better attained by the simple things. A lunch with a friend.  An hour sitting out on the front porch.  Dinner with your hubby.  A visit with your grandchild.  A good writing day.  Playing ball with your dog.  We should all be aware of what brings us joy.


This is my daughter’s new dog.  A rescue dog that has brought them joy.  And the ball was a gift from his Mawmaw.  My daughter texted me the photo, telling me he hasn’t stopped playing with it.

P.S. I’d love for you to come see me this Friday, June 27th from 11:00-12:30 for a Teen Writing Workshop at the Barbara Bush Branch Library located at 6817 Cypresswood Drive, Spring, TX 77379.

The Next Chapter


Exciting news!  I love good news…this week my editor sent me this cover.  I love it.  What do you guys think?  Titled Shadow Falls: The Next Chapter, this is Taken at Dusk and Whispers at Moonrise in one book.  And, like the first two-books-in-one, it’s being sold at the bargain price of $9.99 and will release on October 28th, along with Eternal! 


And, in other exciting news, I’ve written a short story that will be included in a fun new anthology with my friends, Kathleen Brooks and Robyn Peterman called Three Southern Beaches.  It’s available for preorder right now and will release on July 14th!  It’s only 99 cents and I hope you’ll pick up a copy!  Here’s a little about it:


Three of the funniest bestselling romance authors have joined together to provide three novellas set on Hung Island, a fictional resort along the coast of Georgia.

All Hung Up
A Romantic Suspense by Kathleen Brooks

When Trey Everett meets Hollywood star Taylor Jefferies for the first time in the small town of Keeneston, the normally outgoing college football star can barely put two words together. But after one crazy day together, Trey knows he’s found something special with Taylor.

Six years have passed and they are both out of college and living out their dream jobs on a small island along the coast of Georgia. Trey’s ready to ask Taylor one little question to secure their happiness. The only problem stopping his fairy tale ending is that someone is determined to kill the mood . . . and the love of his life.

Divorced, Desperate and Dangerous
A Contemporary Romance by Christie Craig

Detective Turner Calder belongs to the No Ball and Chain Gang. Meaning, no way, no how will he ever let another woman into his heart. He hasn’t even been tempted after what his ex put him through. Yet while working undercover on the trail of one of Texas’ largest drug dealers, Reece Morris gets closer to him than any woman has in two years. Not that’s there’s a snowball chance in Hades it will lead anywhere once she discovers the truth. But two months later, when Turner realizes his now imprisoned suspect has hired someone to knock off witnesses and Reece is one of them, he’s dead set on saving her. If that means taking on her seventy-year-old grandma who has a black belt in Karate, a hired assassin–who scares him less than Granny–and the whole bat-shit crazy town of Hung, Georgia, he’s up for the challenge. Turner is about to turn over a brand new leaf, and get hung up on love.

Ready to Were
A Paranormal Romance by Robyn Peterman

I never planned on going back to Hung Island, Georgia. Ever. I was a top notch Were agent for the secret paranormal Council and happily living in Chicago where I had everything I needed – a gym membership, season tickets to the Cubs and Dwayne – my gay, Vampyre best friend. Going back now would mean facing the reason I’d left and I’d rather chew my own paw off than deal with Hank.

Hank the Tank Wilson was the six foot three, obnoxious, egotistical, perfect-assed, best-sex-of-my-life, Werewolf who cheated on me and broke my heart. At the time, I did what any rational woman would do. I left in the middle of the night with a suitcase, big plans and enough money for a one-way bus ticket to freedom. I vowed to never return.

But here I am, trying to wrap my head around what has happened to some missing Weres without wrapping my body around Hank. I hope I don’t have to eat my words and my paw.
