Recovering from a particularly stressful weekend…my beloved cat, Jack very nearly died. We snatched him back from the grasp of the grim reaper just in the tick of time, thank goodness! He was in seizure, wobbly, and hissing at both of us (Jack doesn’t hiss). So, two-and-a-half days of vet visits later and rather high bills, three new meds, and a cranky cat, he is home with us again. Thank goodness! He burned up one of those nine lives for sure.
Ironically, it was our new kitten, the girl, who picked up on it. She’d just met him face to face for the first time that night. She puffed herself up and put on a show but when she saw his condition, she simmered down and approached him, touching his nose. Awwww…
Otherwise, my only joys of the weekend have been playing with the kittens, a bit of drumming, and finally some gaming.

I”m changing gears completely and going to a beloved co-authored work and a series of Upstaged. Written by myself and Cheryl Headford (Nephy to some) in 2012! Over the course of two years we wrote 12 books together! It was the most insane, wonderful time of my writing life! We hope you love the result. The first four books are published and up for sale at Extasy Press and on Amazon. Here is book #1. Upstaged: Opening Act
Wannabe singer and band front man Erik Von Nordgren hates snarky brit Asher Berkley with a passion. From the moment he turns up at practice with his twin sister Daisy, who is one of the band the two have hated each other.
Through a series of ‘tit for tat’ incidents they annoy, frustrate and exasperated each other. The die hard goth with purple eyes and the hard core rocker with dreams of the big time have nothing in common and no need to cross paths. Except to wind each other up.
Until the day that Erik throws Asher in the school pool, when everything begins to change. Erik is so far in closet he’s in Narnia and Asher has a dark past and trust issues that stand in the way of any relationship, let alone one with the brash American who hurts him every time they try to get together.
A relationship doomed from the start, or so you’d think.

Their hook? They were trying to revive grunge.
After taking in his ragtag troupe from the makeshift stage, Erik surveyed the room and checked his reflection in the mirror that hung at the opposite end of the garage. He shuffled his feet, his new combat boots squeaking slightly as he broke them in. As he shifted his tall, muscular body, his ratty black jeans—two sizes too big for his six-foot-three frame—slipped low on his narrow hips. His chain wallet belt added a hindrance when the thick, heavy chain pelted his leg. He cracked his knuckles and flipped his unwashed, messy blond hair over the short sleeves of his tattered red plaid shirt. He puffed air into his hands to exorcise the nerves he’d never admit to having.
