Hi, Everyone–

Winter has finally, somewhat abruptly arrived in the South. The days are actually cold, and as I write this, we have dreary rain. I’m looking forward to the return of sunshine.

I recently purged my newsletter list because of the EU GDPR regulations. If you forgot to resubscribe or want to subscribe for the first time, you can do so via the box at right.


In book news, I’m delighted to announce that the next Light Mages book, Nemesis, will finally be out November 15. Because my parents met while they were both serving in the navy, as Carter and Tasha did, this is a special book for me. I’m excited to have this story going out into the world at last. It is not, however, my parents’ story. Their experiences in the navy were different, and their path to romance was much, much smoother.

You can find more information about the story here and read the first chapter here.



After Thanksgiving will come the next Outcast Station installment, Christmas on Outcast Station. It’s a two-novella anthology, including one from me and one from my Outcast Station co-creator, Jeanne Adams.

This is science fiction/space opera, not romance. Located on the far fringe of human space, Outcast Station is where careers go to die. Can our characters save theirs?

More details coming soon!



Also after Thanksgiving, I’ll have a Light Mages Christmas short story, “GiGi’s Magic Christmas.” When deputy shire reeve GiGi Gonzales goes home for Christmas, her status as the family’s Last Unmarried Daughter rankles, but she can’t persuade her mom to stop interfering. A ghoul attack on Christmas Eve brings her priorities into focus, especially about the guy next door. He has been her lifelong friend, but can he be something more?





The next book in Lethal Webs series is The Runway Murder Affair. Because of other problems, that’s pushed back until next year.

With the prime minster getting married, London fashion week on the horizon, and gems being smuggled in to fund terrorism, Casey and Jack have their hands full. Meanwhile, Casey is trying to find a way to fit into Jack’s aristocratic family and their world while he doesn’t truly understand the problem. Their personal issues are complicated by having their agencies on the outs with each other.

You can read the first chapter here.


Also delayed is the second book of the Boar King’s Honor trilogy, The Steel Rose. The story moves from the ballrooms of Regency England to the gritty field of Waterloo. This period has always interested me, and now I have an excuse to really dig into it!

The release date will be announced soon. You can find more information about the book here.


That’s what’s on the horizon. If you’d like regular updates on new releases, sales, or free offers, you can subscribe to my newsletter. There’s a subscription link to the right. Newsletters come out only when I have a new release or other news, so signing up won’t get you a barrage from me. I never share subscriber emails except as set forth in the privacy policy.

The holidays are a busy time, and I don’t want to inundate you, so my next newsletter will go out when Nemesis, Christmas on Outcast Station, and “GiGi’s Magic Christmas” are all available.

After the first of the year, frequent updates will appear on my blog and on my Facebook author page. I’ve created a new blog category, On Location, to share with readers the fun of walking my characters’ ground.  You can read “On Location: Nemesishere.

I really love all my covers. If you do, too, you can obtain a signed copy by sending me a self-addressed, stamped envelope (legal size – 4 1/8” by 9 1/2″). For instructions, click here. That will take you to the For E-book Readers page. And just so you know, sending an SASE does not get you on any mailing list.

Thanks for stopping by!
