Cover reveal! Blind Justice available for preorder now.

Tara Fujimoto's story is almost here! She's played an integral role in every Men of Steele book since she first got into trouble in Blind Fury (Book 1), so I'm excited to have found her perfect match in Jeff Patarava, a former Air Force Combat Weatherman (yes, it's a real special operations role).

He craves the outdoors. She's a hardcore city girl. Sometimes opposites attract…a killer.

And then it gets hot. 🔥

When Tara Fujimoto’s quest to avenge her sister’s death makes her a target, a sexy security specialist steps in to watch her back, but his quiet appeal threatens her carefully guarded heart. Can she resist their lightning-hot attraction, and stay alive long enough to expose her enemy?

Former military special operator Jeff Patarava has good reasons to keep his distance from his impossibly perfect coworker, but when her life is threatened, his resolve is shot to hell. Forced into close proximity, sparks fly as he learns she’s far more than her flawless appearance suggests. Now, he’ll put everything on the line to keep her alive.

Scrivener for memoir writing: a podcast interview with The Life Story Coach

The Life Story Coach, Amy Woods Butler, helps people write life stories (theirs or other's), and she uses Scrivener. To give her listeners a better idea of how Scrivener can help them, she asked me to join her for an interview on her podcast.

We discuss the concept of Scrivener as a “project manager for a book,” lots of ways to use the software for any kind of writing, and how weird it is that I'm a left-brained non-plotter. If podcasts are your thing, or you just want to know what I sound like (jk), check it out!

Here's a teaser…

Book news and a new year

Happy new year! I know, it’s a little late—and I completely blew off posting on the blog in December—but I was working feverishly to finish my manuscript and celebrating the holidays with family. Did you have a good holiday? Is 2019 treating you well so far?

We took the kids on a short cruise to Catalina and Ensenada over Christmas. I don’t cruise well, but it was a fun trip, and I enjoyed having both kids home for more than a week. My oldest is all the way in Virginia, so having them here was a special treat.

(If you want to see more photos of my travels, my dog, my writing, and whatever other quirky thing catches my eye along the way, the best place to follow me is Instagram.)

My big news for the new year is that I finished the first draft of Men of Steele #5 yesterday! 🥳 It took me far too long, but it feels great to reach The End. I’ll have to work on revisions soon, but I hope to have the book out in late March. I’ve been wanting to tell Tara Fujimoto’s story for ages (she played a key role in Blind Fury and a minor role in each of the other books), so I’m excited to finally give her the HEA—happy ever after—she deserves.

Keep an eye out for previews and a cover reveal. And if you’re on my newsletter list, you’ll see it all first, along with some of the best books I read in 2018. 😉

Anything exciting in the works for you this year?

Have a fabulous 2019!
