#WriteWed Secrets of Grand Central Terminal & Dare to Love from TAMING THE VAMPIRE

I’m so excited to have completed another story in The Calling is Reborn Vampire Series, especially this one since I’ve been intrigued with the hero, Vampire Slayer Benjamin, since TO LOVE AND SERVE. I won’t spoil what happens to him in that story, but suffice it to say I’ve been itching to do his story and give him the Happily-Ever-After that he deserves.

This story is actually a first in the series since neither FBI Agent Diana Reyes or Southern Vampire Ryder Latimer appear in the story, although they are mentioned. This novella is complete, but look for the continuation of Benjamin and Rhiannon’s story in FIGHT FOR LOVE, which I hope to have out in early 2017.

As for Grand Central Terminal, many of the scenes in DARE TO LOVE are set in and beneath Grand Central. I just love this building with all its amazing art and secrets. For example, the Whispering Wall just outside the Oyster Bar restaurant. No one knows for sure if it was intentional, but if you stand facing the wall diagonally across from someone and whisper, that other person can hear you clear as day.

Did you know that in the 1940s there were orders to shoot and kill any unauthorized person who tried to enter the area for the generators? Why? Damaging those generators would have crippled troop and supply shipments all across the East Coast. Look for scenes set down there as Rhiannon slowly comes into her Slayer powers and realizes that they come from some very unique places.

There is art everywhere you look in this important transportation hub. Here is some artwork above each of the tracks!

Besides the tracks and commuter areas, a very nice food market was built in what had once been an alley for deliveries to the Oyster Bar. There are many different kinds of shops for produce, cheeses, meats, coffee, baked goods. You name it! We often go there to pick up lunch or ingredients for dinner.

Hope you enjoyed this Write Wednesday look at Grand Central Terminal and DARE TO LOVE from TAMING THE VAMPIRE.

#WriteWed Always a Bridesmaid Series Inspiration

I am so so excited to say that I’ve accepted an offer from Sourcebooks for a new contemporary romance series – ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID. The series is about the last three unmarried friends and what happens as one by one, they possibly find the man who might provide the Happily-Ever-After.

The series was inspired by my daughter and her friends since they are all in various stages of dating, getting engaged, and getting married. I thought it might be fun to explore that moment in time and what happens as friends’ relationships change.

Another fun thing – the stories have a hometown feel even though they are set in different parts of New York City. I really love sharing the unique neighborhoods in New York so the stories will move from upscale places like Chelsea and Gramercy Park to more blue collar neighborhoods in Spanish Harlem and Brooklyn.

The stories will also show the diversity of New York City with the first story being about very wealthy old money families to the second story about an up-and-coming Latino family and finally, the third story highlights a big boisterous Italian family!

I am so excited about this series and about being part of the Sourcebooks family. If you’d like to know more about them, visit the Sourcebooks website and also, the fabulous Casablanca Authors website with so many wonderful Sourcebooks authors.

I’m having a little fun with the announcement this morning, so here’s a banner for you! Nope, this isn’t the cover! We haven’t even gotten to that stage yet! I will let you know as soon as we’ve decided on a release date for the series.
