6 Year Anniversary Reflections & Sale

On February 19, 2012, I self-published my first YA paranormal novel: Entangled (Spellbound #1). It was one of the most exciting and terrifying things I’ve ever done.

The Spellbound Trilogy opened the gateways to a genre I’ve loved since I was little but had never considered writing. For decades I’d been using my free time outside of work to write literary short fiction and then historical romance. One historical romance would take me 5 years with the research — then another 5 of querying agents and editors and “almosts” … and a broken heart.

I was so inspired by the indie pioneers who caught my attention in 2011, and who gave me the courage to self-publish and try something different. Getting my stories out to readers has been a dream come true from the start and introduced me to one of the greatest communities of readers and writers.

The book world means so much to me and my greatest wish is that we continue to thrive and support one another. It’s so gratifying to see, not only writers publishing their books, but the opportunities it provides for so many entrepreneurs: PAs, publicists, cover designers, editors, advertisers, narrators, web developers, graphic designers, models, and so many more talented individuals and groups.

Although my writing has become more polished over the years, I will always have a special love for my “first child” especially the totally out there, wild & crazy plotlines, and Gray’s sarcastic wit–and love of chocolate! I will always love Raj and Adrian–especially Adrian (4ever!). Those months of writing the Spellbound books was a time before I worried about things like sales rank and ROI. It was pure outlandish fun. Pure–MAGIC!

🕯️ Book 1 is set to permafree, if you missed it before. And book 2 is on sale for $0.99 until the end of the week. (I see the sale price is in effect everywhere with the exception of Google Play.) Links to all stores and more information can be found on my Spellbound page. The original book trailer can be viewed here, set to the haunting melody “The Raven” by Simon Wilkinson who is a hugely talented composer of atmospheric music.

Thank you for being part of the adventure! Keep reading, writing, designing, and doing the things you love to do! xox


Mating Games is Live!


🐺 🐺 🐺




Hot-tempered, agile, and jaded, Jordan spurns the match her father is pushing between her and the swaggering mammoth, Raider. She’d happily let one of her fawning sisters have him, but her packmates are taking bets on who Raider will ultimately claim. Jordan wants nothing to do with the insufferable beast . . . until he saves her life.


All brawn and no brains, that’s what most male shifters think when they see Raider. The females treat him as a strong, attractive prize they want to sink their claws into. Only one female avoids him, which is fine with him until they are paired up for patrol. The hot-blooded she-wolf doesn’t have to like him, but she’ll have to find a way to perform her duties.


When Jordan’s life is threatened, along with several packmates, the mating games take a dangerous turn.

Something sinister is happening in Wolf Hollow and outside forces threaten the impassioned bond forming between two shifters fated to be together.

“A clever romance with strong characters and an intriguing fictional world.” – Kirkus Reviews

“A sexy and captivating world of shifters.” – New York Times bestselling author, Karen Lynch

“This was an incredible roller coaster of action, romance, and magic!” – The Red Hatter Book Blog

“The characters were fantastic. Dynamic, relatable, stubborn, kick-ass, I could really go on.” – Urban Fantasy Investigations

Cocky. Coy. Wolf shifter. Tabor is the hollow’s only half-breed, scorned and forbidden to use his powers. Constantly overlooked despite his strengths, Tabor believes Sasha is as shortsighted as the rest of the pack until she proves there’s more to her than a blindly obedient lapdog to the council.

Spirited, stubborn, and deeply loyal, Sasha feels the pressure from her pack to claim another pureblood, yet no one is brazen enough to defy the elders and toy with her . . . no one besides a sexy, hotheaded half-breed.

Bewildered by the deceptively proud and surprisingly sensual Sasha, Tabor would risk everything to claim her. Despite her vanishing bloodline, Sasha can’t resist the charismatic half-breed even as predators threaten their pack and the elders pressure her to breed with a pureblood.

In a fantastical post-apocalyptic world, where only the strongest survive, sometimes trusting the heart is the bravest act of all.

*Wolf Hollow is an adult fantasy romance. Cliffhanger free. HEA.
