We exchanged a few lines like any two acquaintances would. It was polite conversation. He asked me how my family was doing. I asked… Continue reading A Snippet from my New Release

Yes, that hashtag is tempting to use even when we writers choose to procrastinate. Book 7 is in progress and it's going to be a romance unlike the last… Continue reading Another Romance in the Making
