It’sJumped‘s release day! It was a labor of love and panic, exhilaration and fear. The second novel does that to someone, I’ve learned from talking with other novelists. It’s the first book I wrote with a deadline, and with an editor waiting. There was a rather major setback when I broke the hero’s jaw and […]
This is my first post as a bonafide, real live, puttin’-it-out-there, published novelist. It has been—and still is—quite the ride. For those dressage riders out there, I compare it to the first time (and one of the only times) I got to ride piaffe/passage transitions. Waaaayyy cool! To think that this madness began innocently enough […]
Recently I completed the manuscript for my second novel. It was harder to complete than the manuscript for the first novel. It has been pointed out to me by experienced novelists that this may have been due to the fact that the maximum amount of time I had to complete the second novel—if I had […]
Yes, Thrown is now available through many of your favorite online book retailers. I was rather shocked to learn this through a relative on Facebook. Who knew?

I collected agents’ cards at RWA.I logged into Querytracker.com (I love querytracker; I love the frowny, red faces for “rejection” and the smiley faces connoting […]
So this is all about me (yeah, like all my other blog posts AREN’T), but this is also an announcement. A big announcement. I got a book contract. This happened a while ago (the very end of November), but I was waiting until I got the contract in my hot little hands from the publisher […]
My husband is an actor. Yes, I am secretly married to George Clooney. Okay not really. (Damn! I’d love to have a pet pig. That’s truly the only reason I’d EVER think it would be in any way pleasant to be Mrs. George Clooney. Honey*.) My husband is actually handsomer and talenteder than Mr. Clooney. […]
