When Sex is WORTH THE WEIGHT

I’m probably the only woman in America who skimmed past the sex scenes in Fifty Shades of Grey.  It’s not that I’m a prude.  I don’t hide under a pillow when Hannah walks around naked on Girls, or fast forward Sooki having sex with Bill, Eric, or that creepy Warlow on True Blood.  Watching a sex scene on TV doesn’t seem as voyeuristic as reading one when the bedroom door stays open in a novel. After one round of submissions for Worth the Weight with no luck, my agent told me I should spice up my G rated rom-com since Fifty Shades of Grey had amped up the heat in the romance industry. “No whips and chains.”  I said.  “Or [...]

Do You Believe In Ghosts? + Giveaway

Behind the Scenes of The House on Blackberry Hill I spent a lot of time thinking about what story I would write when I sat down to write a “big book”. I went through many concepts over the course of several years, all the while writing shorter romances for Harlequin and Samhain. The first idea was a WWII set story with a hereditary blood disorder at the heart of a mystery. Then there was a dual time setting moving between the past and present, featuring an apple farmer and the Nova Scotia coast. And there was the current story, The House on Blackberry Hill, though the initial concept and first draft of this book is drastically different from the finished [...]

WINNERS Announced! Release Day! Forbidden: The Soulkeepers + Giveaway!

I can’t believe this day has finally arrived! It’s a walking on air kind of day never to be repeated. There is only one debut novel for a writer, and I’m so happy that mine is Forbidden, a story very close to my heart. Several years ago when I first began writing Forbidden, I had no idea that the paranormal genre was so popular. Big surprise on me! But what got me even more was the never-ending interest in the particular theme of Angels. (So it’s not just me :D) There are few things that have captured and sustained my imagination more than Angels. When we’re little, Angels are often seen as that soft idea hovering around our peripheral beliefs. [...]

This scene is the first meeting of my two main characters, Isabel and Marshall (aka Izzy and Marsh). Izzy has recently gotten some very bad news—she’s been rejected for medical residency programs because she failed her emotional readiness test. She’s decided, after a therapist and her boss suggest that her failure might be due to a “lack of normal teenage experiences,” to enroll [...]

Playlist and Giveaway: SEX AND THE SINGLE VAMP

When I’m not writing romance (or working the EDJ, loving my hubby and kiddos) I sing in a band.  You never know what wedding or bar mitzvah you might attend and hear me belting out covers of popular songs. So, it will come as no surprise that I use music in the creation of my story.  I have a playlist for every story before I put one word on the paper and when I hit “play”, I am immediately drawn into that world. I’m really not sure if I could write without one and I’m too chicken to try it out. So, I thought I would share my Top Five favorite songs from the playlist for SEX & THE SINGLE [...]

A Regency Primer (And Giveaway!)

I absolutely love writing Regency-set romance novels. The Regency period is so much fun! But if you’re relatively new to Regency romances, there might be a few terms you’re not familiar with. Words to Know First of all, you might be wondering what, exactly, the Regency is. Regency—the period between 1811 and 1820 when King George III was considered too ill to rule and his son, later George IV, was made regent in his place. Novels set anywhere between 1800 and the mid-1820s are often considered Regencies. There are lots of French words used in Regency romances. That’s because everything French was considered de rigeur (required by the current fashion) in Regency England. Here are a few French terms you [...]

Winner Announced: The Apocalypse, Demons, and Portals, Oh My! + Giveaway!

Stories abound these days that include the apocalypse; either the hero and heroine avert it, survive it, or in some cases, cause it. That theme has been one which has fascinated us since the dawning of civilization, we have wondered how our story would end. I admit that I have always been quite captivated with end of the world scenarios. There are a ton of books and movies which examine how society and people would function; The Hunger Games, The Walking Dead, and Revolution are prime examples. At its heart, each of these stories removes all human artifice and brings what is truly important to the forefront. I like the issues that are examined. If the world ended, does society [...]
