Professional


Meeting new readers, online and IRL. I love to talk romance! Hit me up on Facebook. Let's chat.

I will be attending the California Dreamin' Conference March 24-26, 2017 in Brea, CA and the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on April 22-23 on the campus of USC. I'm also planning on attending the RWA National Conference in Orlando on July 26-29.

Writing


Book #6 in the Cowboy Cocktail series. We're traveling back in time. This is Dale and Cece's story, the one that started it all.

I'm working on a brand new series and a whole bunch of new characters. I hope you like tattoos. Stay tuned.

Working on various short stories and novellas for anthologies and boxed sets.

I'm in love with the craft guide Romancing the Beat by Gwen Hayes.

Personal 


Last month, we said goodbye to our pup Hans Von Schnauzer. He had always had a heart murmur, but his congenital heart defect finally caught up to him, and he faded over the course of twelve months. He remained a sweet and brave dog to the end.

A Few Things I Currently Cannot Shut Up About 


The leather and oak moss candle from Banter & Bliss, a local candle maker based in Pasadena. It smells like a romance hero. It smells AWESOME.

Coconut oil. It's a rainy winter here in California, but my skin always gets super dry in January and February. I bought a huge tub of pure coconut oil from Shea Moisture. It's marvelous.

My new Replica perfume rollerball in Beach Walk. On gray days, it helps to smell like a sunny, sun-kissed walk on the beach.
