I know what you’re thinking, and you’d be right. I’ve been MIA for way too long. Without meaning to make excuses, the past few months have been like a whirlwind. Besides having my mother-in-law come to live with us, my trusty assistant had a stroke in May and I was forced to pick up the pieces and keep things flowing seamlessly, while at the same time had to train up a temp assistant during our busy period. Oh, and while all this was happening my little pug developed a growth on his hind leg and had to go for surgery. (In case you don’t know yet, my puggie is my second son, so the whole Bentley saga was devastating for hubby and myself. I’ll reserve the details for a future post.)

So anyway (*…taking a deep breath…*), having said that, the GOOD NEWS is that my latest book, Dream Snatcher, has just been released! EXCITING TIMES!!! Book launches have a way of drawing you back to where you belong – getting into the swing of updating blogs and spreading the news to my faithful readers and friends.

Dream Snatcher is the first book in a family saga trilogy.

I’m so excited to share this book with you! Enjoy…



Just when Dana thinks she has found true love, her mother drops a bombshell that turns her world upside down. Now she must find a way to quench a love that was never supposed to happen.

After twenty-five years, Lorraine finds her missing son—just not in the way she’d expected—and is forced to reveal the plethora of family secrets that has remained hidden for decades.

Dana delves into her grandfather’s past to uncover the story of this one man’s destructive lifestyle, and how it ultimately led to the unraveling of the entire family line. At the same time, she must piece together the mystery surrounding herself and her brother—two siblings deliberately kept apart so they would never find each other.

With three generations of women affected, will Dana get to meet the man responsible and solve the mystery?



Stipula_fountain_penAah, it’s Friday again. There’s nothing better than winding down after a long week and letting the creative side kick in. Today, I thought we’d have a bit of FRIDAY FUN by chatting about CHARACTERS.

For me, character development is the most fun part of writing a story. I’m not happy until my characters are living, breathing people with unique personalities, habits, and quirks…until they’re so real I can almost touch them. It stings to remember I’m probably the only one to see them that way, and can only hope my readers love (or hate) them as much as I do. If you are like me and feel the characters you’ve created deserve some recognition, here’s your chance to brag a little. Tell us something about ONE character in a book you’ve written.

  • What makes that person stand out?
  • In what ways are they similar to you?
  • In what ways are they unlike you?
  • Were they inspired by you/someone you know?

Add the book title and one link.
