What's Going On?!

A quick update about what is going on with me and my books. 
This year, the anthology, Cupid Painted Blind, went off sale and is no longer available. On August 25th, I got my rights back from my publisher for Wanted: Vampire - Free Blood. 

Because of those two events, my short story and my first novel remain unpublished.

The final book in the series is also done and awaiting publishing.

What is the hold up? With my divorce this year and my new job, time is shorter and things are taking longer than usual. On the bright side, in the interim, I am working on getting all new covers for the trilogy before I republish the first and finally present the final book to the world!

With both of these releases, I'm trying to put together a HUGE promotion for October, and I invite (I may do a little begging!) you all to join me and help me spread the word when October nears. 

Sign up here! (You'll get a link on the rafflecopter, and one blogger who posts will receive a $10 Amazon Giftcard!)

You can also join the Facebook group here for updates and to be among the first to see the covers.  

Finally... I've created a Street Team. If you'd like Paperbacks, swag, ARCs, etc., join my Street Team

A huge THANK YOU in advance!

Annie Crown Knoll: Sunset



Return to Annie Crow Knoll. . . a place where people come to restore their spirits, heal their pain and reclaim their lives.

Nate Bidwell blamed his mother Annie for his parents' divorce. Buried hurts and resentments between mother and son make Nate reluctant to risk his heart when his childhood friend Beth Ann offers him her own. Instead, he allows himself to fall in love with the fragile and dependent June, and Annie's opposition to their marriage reignites years of unresolved conflict with her only child. Nate swears that he will never return to Annie Crow Knoll, his family home on the Chesapeake Bay. Instead, he opens his dream restaurant in Manhattan and tirelessly works to build his career as a chef.

When near-tragedy strikes their lives, though, Nate is forced to return to the one place he hopes may save his wife: Anne Crow Knoll. There, surrounded by the love and support of his mother, their friend Packard and Beth Ann, Nate and June face their doubts and fears about themselves, their marriage and their future. In the beauty of this Chesapeake community, they find hope and healing.

Chronicles of Steele: Raven FREE!


Human life has value. The poor living in the gutter is as valuable as the rich living in a manor. The scoundrel is no less valuable than the saint. Because of this, every life a reaper takes must be redeemed.

Raven has lived by this first tenet since she was trained by her father to become a reaper. But since his death, she’s been spending years redeeming the lives she’s taken. By her count, she’s even and it’s time for that life to end. If she settles down and becomes a wife, she might just feel human again. But on the way to the life she thinks she wants, the baron of New Haven asks her to complete a task which she cannot ignore… Just when Raven decides to give up on her life as an assassin, she’s pulled right back in. The Chronicles of Steele: Raven is a steampunk-inspired fantasy set in an alternate universe.
