Hiatus Ending

It’s been a long, painful spring. I lost one of the loves of my life, my kitty J. D. He fought until the very end and we tried everything possible, but the cancer got him. My hubby and best friend were with me as we all said goodbye and he died very peacefully in my arms.

the love of my life

I miss him beyond words and felt a very strange relief at his passing. For the past two years he’s gone downhill little bits at a time, and at the end, he was ready to go. We do have other furbabies to look after; but J. D. was special and sweet. He was my first boy.

Yesterday I spoke to a good friend of mine, a fellow author, who admitted that after his mother died, he’d lost the desire to write at all. I’ve been in this mood as well; even picking up a different hobby to fill the void. Every time I had an idea, it was fleeting at best and never even made it to paper or screen.

Given the past two years, I now understand that this is normal when going through stressful situations, grief, etc. J.D. is gone on to the wonderful afterlife at rainbow bridge and waits for me there. I promised him I’d live my best life here until we meet again and I intend to do just that.

That said, look for more of me on here, and a return to showing off my books and characters, and even a peek into what is coming next.

I appreciate everyone of you who reads this blog and my books very much!

Yours,

Cover Reveal! This Time Around (FKA Refugees)

After much tweaking and rewriting (and a new title too) the book formerly known as ‘Refugees’ will be known as ‘This Time Around’.  It is still the tale following the two men left behind in the wake of the angsty dramatic ‘For the Heart of Phillip’.

This Time Around 1

Look for a release date soon as the final touches are being put on this book.

Cheers!

The reviews are in…Cid is a hit!

Ask 26-year-old artist Cid Walker how he’s feeling and you’ll likely get a snarl, or a glare, but not a real answer. Cid’s soul is so damaged from a brutal and savage ex-fiancé that trusting anyone is out of the question.
Two classmates try to get his attention; Barry and Kellen. Barry is only 18 and a very naïve, sweet boy-next-door type who is young, needy, and anxious to get involved with the mysterious artist. He wants to be with Cid more than anything, but his efforts fail.
Kellen, all of 22, is as snarky as Cid is at first, but soon manages to get across to him. Kellen understands why Cid is acting out because Kellen is also keeping his soul and psyche intact with mere Band-Aids after being attacked a few years ago.
Add in a stalker that won’t take ‘no’ for an answer and you have Cid’s life at the moment. Who can get through his broken heart?
***trigger alert*** mention of past sexual assault
