#WineWednesday Celebrating Good News

Apparently I’ve been unaware of #WineWednesday which considering I love wine, is a shame. I truly enjoy a glass with a nice meal or with cheese and crackers while I read a good book on my balcony during the warmer weather. I also like to celebrate good news with a good glass of wine.

What good news? Getting a release date for ONE SUMMER NIGHT, the first book in the AT THE SHORE contemporary romance series. ONE SUMMER NIGHT will be available in October 2017 from Casablanca Sourcebooks. WOO HOO! Unfortunately, I can’t share the cover just yet, but I hope to be able to do so soon!

For now, let’s pop some cyber bubbly and celebrate!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

As a romance writer, this is truly one of the days of the year I love best because I truly believe that everyone can have their Happily-Ever-After. It might not be easy at times as we all know. There will be conflict and drama. Ups and downs, but at the end of the day, I truly believe that love can conquer all.

So for today, wishing you all love and happiness! I am grateful that you are all in my life.

#TeaserTuesday Under the Boardwalk & LSF Writers Conference

Sorry I’ve been absent off and on, but lots of new things going on in my life. Some moving and downsizing. Some revisions and getting to work on #2 in the AT THE SHORE contemporary romance series.

Also, I’m now the President of the Liberty States Fiction Writers. Very exciting, especially since we’re having our 8th Annual Conference in a little over a month. There are some great workshops for writers and an awesome line-up of panels and fun events for readers. You can check them out here:

I hope to see some of you there!

Today I’m sharing a teaser from UNDER THE BOARDWALK. In this sensual and emotional story, a husband and wife, Chase and Natalie, have lost the passion as their lives have pulled them apart. The love is still there, but it is caught up in a lot of other things that are keeping them from being real with each other. In this story, they get real again and try to rekindle their love and marriage, but also find themselves again.


Natalie Ramirez has spent less and less time with her husband over the last year and more and more time alone. She longs for the happy days of summer when she and Chase would pass the time together on the beach and under the boardwalk, exploring the passion that simmered between them as hot as any summer sun.

Chase Smith had to work hard for everything he ever had, including his wife Natalie. His wife had never wanted for anything in her life and Chase didn’t want to disappoint her. But somewhere along the way, Chase lost sight of the most important thing she wanted: his love.

A passionate night under the boardwalk brought them together, but can Chase and Natalie rekindle that lost love and save their marriage?

#WriteWed Inspiration #Amwriting #Amreading

One of the absolute best parts of the writing gig is getting to meet other authors and readers! It’s why I love going to conferences and events. These are the ones I’ll be attending so far this year and if you’re in the area, I would love to see you and get to spend some time with you! Of course, since I’m a reader as well as a writer, I can’t wait to meet other authors and find out more about their books. It’s a win-win situation.

Santa was good to me this year!

I hope you all had nice holidays so far! We had wonderful holidays and Santa was good to me and got me this awesome jersey! Can’t wait to wear it next season!

In the meantime, I’ve been helping my daughter move into her new house. Spent yesterday putting in shelf paper and helping out by shopping for some kitchen essentials. Will drop in again soon to share what’s happening!

Happy Happy Holidays!

It’s hard to believe that the holidays are here! I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Hanukkah! I’ll be very busy over the next two weeks with writing revisions, but even more exciting, helping my daughter move into her new home. Wow! I’ll be popping in to share with you and I hope you will take a moment to share what you will be doing for the holidays and the upcoming New Year!
