Editor’s Notes on Writing Fresh

This past Saturday, I was luck enough to meet Entangled Publishing Editor Kerri-Leigh Grady. She shared with me and the Diamond State Romance Authors some tips for writing fresh and catching the publishers’ eyes. I’m sharing those morsels at the DSRA Blog. Come on over!


Happy October!

I LOVE summer. Sunny clear skies warm the very core of my being. I can’t help but smile, and sweat in June, July, and August. Heat and humidity melt me into a giddy puddle. But there is one month which follows a close second to the precious summer months…



That magical time of year when the colors of the earth morph from green to a brilliant array of reds, yellows, and oranges. When adults become kids again for the most fleeting of moments, dressing in wacky whimsical ways to entertain. When ordinary homes become haunted dwellings of tricks and treats. It’s also the time of year when I turn one year older, and perhaps, a little wiser. Maybe that’s why I’ve always ignored the other millions of people who have birthdays in this month and thought of October as my month.

So, I’d love to share with you a few of the things that make October special for me.



Jack-O-Lanterns & Pumpkins…



New Friends…


Sweet Treats…


Thrills & Chills…

What is your favorite month or favorite thing about October?
