Hi, Everyone–

The holidays were hectic for us this year, but we skidded into Christmas morning with everything important done.  Whether or not you celebrate, I hope you enjoyed the season. As we look toward the New Year, I’m figuring out how to approach various projects.  One of the big ones, as always, is purging the TBR pile.  I’m going to try “Read 3 Before Buying 1” and see if that helps!

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, is out. 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 go 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.



The next Outcast Station installment, Christmas on Outcast Station, is also available. 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.

As the Christmas season rolls along, Chief Station Marshal Brad Carruthers and Deputy Marshal Hank Tremaine have no time to celebrate. Brad has to protect a reluctant princess who’s in danger from warring factions on her home planet. She isn’t making it easy. Hank has to find the killer of one of the scorpioid Drachans and recover a priceless religious artifact. The Drachans aren’t inclined to be patient, and diplomatic tensions are rising. Hank and his team must find the killer and recover the artifact before interstellar war breaks out.

Finally, the next Light Mage Wars Christmas short story, “GiGi’s Magic Christmas, is also out. 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. Then her sister makes the unsettling suggestion that GiGi and the guy next door, Matt Gonzales, might be something more than neighbors. GiGi dismisses the suggestion but can’t stop thinking about it. Matt 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.


A new edition of The Herald of Day will be out in October 2019. The second book of the Boar King’s Honor trilogy, The Steel Rose, will follow in October 2020. 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!

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.

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!
