Latest Release – Find The Magic – How to Plot a Story in 10 Easy Steps:

(FREE through Kindle Unlimited)

How to write a novel? That is the question. There are probably as many answers to that question as there are people who ask it. 
Wanting to write and actually doing it are two very different things. I am well acquainted with the sometimes grueling process of churning out a story. Over the years, I have tried many methods for creating and completing manuscripts, and have tweaked and honed it down to a workable (for me) process.

Using specific examples from one of my own novels, Without Mercy, I share my method in this mini how to book. There is no one, perfect way to create a story, but there will be a method, or methods that work for you. I’m not sure if this is the one, but it works for me. Only you can decide if it also works for you. Fingers crossed that it does!

*** Warning – Please do not purchase without reading a sample. (This is solid advice for any book, fiction or non. If you are not intrigued in the sample, you will likely not enjoy the book)

Without Mercy Extra Large

How far will a mother go to protect her child?

When an apparently random bank robbery turns out to be a sinister plan, single mother China Beckett is thrust into a nightmare. A group of mercenaries take over her life, threatening her young daughter and everyone they love. Each time China makes a mistake, someone dies. She’ll fight to the last breath to protect her child, but with no idea who to trust or what these people want from her, that might not be enough. 

As the lives of China’s loved ones are jeopardized, she must take action, although she has no idea where to turn—and time is running out. But then, a startling truth is revealed and China discovers that the only person who can save them might be a ghost from the past.

A year after her husband’s death, Emily Tillman is ready to start dating again, and hopefully, find what she’s always wanted—marriage and children. But the man who broke her heart five years ago is back. And he’s anything but the marrying kind.

Confirmed bachelor Reese Caster is perfectly content with his life—and he’s finally over Emily, the one woman who almost made him commit. Now, his world is rocked when her dead husband shows up, demanding that Reese pursue Emily to keep her out of the clutches of her latest suitor—a jerk who is only after her money.

Being around Emily again has made Reese reconsider his bachelor life style. But now that the threat of the other man is gone, the pesky ghost wants Reese to break things off. Can he and Emily find the love they were denied, or will the ghost of her dead husband destroy their chances?

I am very excited about these special anthologies from The Wild Rose Press, now available. This is a collection of romance short stories in various genres, that were written as part of a project I did with my former writer’s group, OKRWA. (Although I’m not currently a member, I still love the group, and the people in it. :))

We had the idea to write a series of short stories with the recurring theme of a cursed, antique Scrimshaw doll. All of the stories were either set in Oklahoma, or had ties to Oklahoma (other than those that were in an era before Oklahoma existed).

Latest Release! – Liberty Divided Isle of Fangs Book 2

(Click on cover to be taken to Amazon page)

LibertyDivided-400

One man can fulfill her destiny…the other can fulfill her fantasy.

To quell the rise of evil vampires, Liberty Van Helsing must embrace her newfound Hunter destiny. But she has a great deal to learn, and Eli Barkley—the vampire who has been teaching her—has already betrayed her once. Her goal is to shut Eli out of her life and become a better hunter on her own—and to focus on her new romance with hot Australian, Ryan Kelly, a human she can trust.

But when a rogue vampire begins savagely killing young women, the authorities insist Liberty work with Eli to find the murderer. Liberty must overlook Eli’s epic betrayal and find a way to get along with him if they are to stop the unknown maniac and protect innocent lives.

Yet, the more time Liberty spends with Eli, the more her unwanted attraction to him grows. She starts to question her feelings for Ryan—are they real, or could Eli be ‘the one?’ As Eli and Liberty delve further into the murders, clues surface that point to Eli as the culprit. Can she trust him now? Or will she have to plunge a stake into his heart, breaking her own, just when she’s learning to believe in him again?

TVD_WhatTheHeartWants_Final

The Vampire Diaries Book 1

Golden girl Elena’s dark side takes over and Stefan and Damon struggle to keep her from the destruction that will surely come from loving to her ravenous heart’s content. Now the former prom queen knows what so many girl ghouls before her came to understand: Life sure can suck when you’re a teenage vampire. One more complication that makes nightlife in Mystic Falls an intoxicating brew of heartache and longing: on one hand, Damon is quite happy that vampire Elena is no longer suffering from her brother Jeremy’s cruel death. On the other hand, he’s crushed to discover that, when he turned off her humanity, the act seems to have killed whatever feelings Elena had for him.

But is Jeremy really dead? Not if Elena’s best friend, the obsessive, scheming Bonnie has her way. Fans of The Vampire Diaries books and People’s Choice-winning television series will be thrilled to discover there is way more life (and love) after death in Mystic Falls. Follow the series with Book 2 (Divine Enemy) – WARNING! - The blurb for Book 2 contains a spoiler, so read no further until you’ve finished Book 1  :)

TVD_DivineEnemy_Final

The Vampire Diaries Book 2

Elena Gilbert is no longer a vampire and is now trying to learn to live with the grief over her brother, Jeremy’s passing. There is also the sobering knowledge that in her previous incarnation she caused so much suffering and death. On top of all that emotional baggage Elena experiences another frustration: A strange, alluring woman arrives in Mystic Falls; the kind of sorceress who can enslave men with a single knowing glance. Is she simply a seductress or someone — or something — more threatening? Yet another evil threatens Elena’s hometown. A mysterious psychopath is stalking Caroline. Suddenly powerless, a mere human being, Elena reaches out to the dark side, imploring Stefan Salvatore for guidance and help. But he’s with Rebekah now. And Elena begins to understand that she’s probably lost him forever. Complicating matters, Tyler and Klaus are prepared to fight over Caroline’s safety. Perhaps even fight to the death. With Mystic Falls suddenly a cauldron of furious, exploding passions, Elena must somehow summon the human strength and cunning to protect friends and banish newfound enemies.

An urgent, at times breathlessly suspenseful mystery, Divine Enemy is an exciting story inspired by the bestselling Vampire Diaries series. Start the series with Book 1 (What the Heart Wants).

Gossip Girl Book 1

Blair wants Chuck back. And she’s not too proud to beg for his attention. Especially since the Versace gown she’s wearing to New York’s party of the year looks fabulous when she bends down.

It’s summer on the Upper East Side and emotions are hotter than July! Blair is back from Paris, ready to take over Waldorf Designs. She also has her designs on her oldest, hottest flame, who just happens to be throwing the season’s most exclusive affair, an “I Don’t Give a Damn That My Father is a Son of a Bitch – Chuck Bass Isn’t Down for the Count” party. At first, Chuck tells Blair that she is now no more than a sexual plaything to him. But their relationship is truly tested when New York’s celebration of the summer turns into a surprise party. Blair is stolen away from Chuck’s hotel suite. And the kidnapper is suddenly on Chuck’s cell phone. Do exactly as I say, he informs Chuck, or else I’ll kill your favorite party favor.

Full of the delicious, deep-dish gossip that made Blair Waldorf the girl everyone loves to talk about.
