Memorial Day Weekend

flag-958343_1280Hey all! It’s a holiday weekend here in the USA. Memorial Day weekend is a day to celebrate those who gave their life while serving in the armed forces. To many, it’s also the unofficial start of summer. Last Memorial Day, I had just put up the hammock in my backyard and enjoyed quite a lot of time out there. There was also a comical moment when I flipped out of said hammock – luckily I rescued the laptop and didn’t land on top of it…(go ahead and laugh, my mother did…)

While sitting in my hammock last year, I wrote a draft of The Only Wolf. It was just a story that was in my head after spending hours watching coverage of the 70th anniversary of the Holocaust. It wasn’t ever supposed to amount to anything, but those who I let read it loved it. So it became a trilogy.

This Memorial Day weekend, I’m planning to spend some more magical time in the hammock, this time working on Free to Believe, book 4 in the Katie Freeman Mysteries. I’m hoping the story turns out to be as enthralling as the Devil Mountain Shifters were. Hopefully, I can remain in the hammock this time. 🙂

One year and counting…..

Oh my goodness! I can’t believe it’s been a year since I published my first book. This has been a rollercoaster ride of fun, stress, learning, and frustration, but has been overall rewarding. I started 2014 with two goals: write one novel, and publish one novel. I started 2015 with the goal to publish four books. So far, I have published three books and three novellas. My fourth book will be released at the end of the month!

Katie Freeman is going to make an appearance in her third book, Free to Live, December 29.

Special Agent Katie Freeman has a secret, one she has only shared with her partner, Michael Powell. While looking at the files of a cold case, Katie discovered a possible personal connection. Is her mother the woman who disappeared twenty-six years ago? And did she kill Katie’s father? 

If her mother is the missing woman, how will that affect Katie’s career with the FBI? And, now that she has dragged her partner into this mess, will the calls come tumbling down on him, too? Adding to the stress is Katie’s new relationship with a fellow FBI agent. She is keeping secrets from him that impedes their ability to move their relationship forward. 

Can Katie resolve this situation before she loses everything she has worked for?

For all of you who have fallen in love with Katie and Michael, I hope you enjoy their newest adventure.

Thank you for sticking with me as I have explored the self-publishing world. I look forward to giving you many more books in the future!

Colder weather…hotter scenes…

treesWell, it’s that time of year again – the time when it gets dark outside earlier; the sweatshirts come out of the closet; fragrant stews are on the stove; fireplaces are lit. Most important of all? There’s more time to snuggle with a good book! I’ve had a lot of time to write lately and have big plans for 2016.

DMS websiteBut first, I need to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all the readers who have read the new Devil Mountain Shifters series. October was a really busy month for me with the release of the trilogy and the results were better than I could have predicted. It was such a fun series to write and I am ecstatic to see it so well received.

Next up is Katie Freeman, coming December 2015. For all of you who have been following Katie, Free to Live will finally answer the questions from book one. Is Charlene Katie’s mother? Did Charlene kill Hank? I have been enjoying writing this book and winding together the story from 26 years ago and the investigation of the current cold case. It’s so much fun to see how this affects the relationship between Katie and Michael. Ryan Brewer also makes an appearance – and his relationship with Katie could be growing.

I’m not a fan of cold weather – never have been. Anything under 70* is entirely too cold. In the past, I’ve spent a lot of time reading, but this year I’m putting those multiple hours to work getting my own words on paper. I hope to share those words with you in the future. Until then, stay warm.

October Releases

Wow! What a month October has turned out to be. This has been a whirlwind month with the release of the Devil Mountain Shifters series. For those of you who missed last week’s release, check out The Only Wolf, available on Amazon and KU now.

Those of you who enjoyed Dirk and Ada’s story and want more, I’m happy to tell you that Walther and Sascha are next up in the series. Their book is available TODAY!!

Second Mate

Second Mate - FINAL for KindleWalther is happy for his friend, really he is. The only problem is that, with Dirk bonded, he is the only one without a mate. Walther lost his mate ten years ago in the incessant war waged by the enemy pack. Now, his wolf is destined to be alone. Trying to hide his depression and loneliness, Walther dives into his duties as General of the pack – including guarding the visitor from the enemy pack. Surely one little female can’t be that much trouble.

Sascha is the last cub born to her pack, and the last one ever to be born if she can’t find a way to convince the rival pack to let her have access to their lair. But first she has to convince her father that allowing her to proceed with a diplomatic solution is the way to go. Her father would rather continue the war and further deplete their numbers. But is going into the enemy’s lair the best solution, or has she bitten off more than she can chew?

History says a wolf mates for life. But what happens when the sparks fly for a second time?

The series will wrap up with the release of the third book NEXT TUESDAY! Bear to Bond will follow the story of Harald and Ursel as they navigate the obstacles that stand between them and Happily Ever After.

As a teen, Ursel witnessed the explosion of her parents’ relationship and the eventual death of her father. Determined that she will never endure that pain, she has sworn off mating. As the first female alpha of the polar bear pack, she lives a full life leading and helping others. Then Harald crosses her path…

Harald has spent his life as part of a pack that has no future. Their clan is slowly dying out and there is no one left for him to bond with. When his pack merges with their former enemies, he watches as all his friends find mates. Then he catches Ursel’s scent and knows she is the one.

Can Harald convince Ursel to take a chance on their bond? Or will she deny their bond and continue to live a life of loneliness?

And, for those of you who are wondering about Elfi and Konrad, they might make an appearance in Bear to Bond, but you’ll have to read to find out…

The Only Book…

Guess what? I have a new book out today! I wrote a few weeks about a new project involving shapeshifter and a new trilogy. Well, it’s finally here. The three books in the Devil Mountain Shifter series will be released over three consecutive Tuesdays beginning today.

Because this is a new venture for me and the books are novella length, the are going to be offered for $0.99 and will also be available on Kindle Unlimited. I hope you enjoy these books as much as I did while I was writing them.

Now, go check out The Only Wolf available on Kindle Unlimited and Amazon TODAY!


The Only WolfThe Only Wolf

No longer able to work, and with the insurance money from her parents running out, she heads to Alaska – toward the only clue in her parents left her as to her real identity and destiny.

Dirk has taken over as the leader of the pack of shifters on the Seward peninsula in Northwest Alaska. Struggling to keep his clan safe is his number one priority, especially with the neighboring pack constantly threatening their borders.
