Forbidden Instinct

Any time I look back on Forbidden Instinct, I ask myself the same question. Why the heck haven’t I done more with this series?

I absolutely love it, have the second book halfway written, and have the rest of the series mapped out. Plus, I’ve received some of the absolutely best feedback about this series.

So, why haven’t I done more? The answer is… complicated.

Honestly? This series has a huge amount of potential, and I think that scares me. I know, it’s ridiculous and I should just push through and write it, but I really want to do this right. I haven’t given up on it, even though it’s been on the shelf for a while, and I’m actually still working on it in the background.

I will return full-heartedly to this series someday soon, I hope! And it will be epic…


To save the world, she’ll sacrifice anything—even the man she loves.

Lingering Touch

Today’s book for #ThrowbackThursday is the final installment of The Summer Park Psychics trilogy, Lingering Touch. This is by far the most suspenseful and action-packed of the three books. I had learned so much by the time I wrote it, and learned even more after publishing it.

Ever since I read the pivotal moment of “the flight of the queens” and Ruth’s hatching in Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern series in several books from different points of view (POV), I dreamed of exploring that creative technique in my own stories. With Whispering Hearts and Lingering Touch, I took my first plunge into writing stories that ran in parallel to each other. You’ll see conversations in each book from the different characters’ POVs, getting a much deeper view into what was going on during those moments.

Could I have done it better? Undoubtedly. But the knowledge I gained, and the extra time spent with characters I love was absolutely worth it. I have to say that I consider Lingering Touch to be the strongest book in the trilogy. I hope you’ll give it a chance!


The memory of his touch has never left her heart…or her body.

Whispering Hearts

Hello, again! For today’s book featured on #ThrowbackThursday, we’re moving through my Summer Park Psychics series with Whispering Hearts. I absolutely adored Dr. Garrett Wolfstrom in Wandering Soul. I wanted to spend more time with him and learn more about him. How better than to give him his own book?

I remember that it took me a long time to figure out who he’d end up with. When I spent some more time with Rachel, and learned just how special she was, the pair just clicked. I still think of them both every year around Tanabata (July 7 is the version of this holiday I used for their book).


Chased into the arms of the man she can never have…

Wandering Soul

Hello, everyone! I’ve wanted to revisit my books in this space for a long time, so for the next while, I’ll be featuring a different book of mine on #ThrowbackThursday! What better place to start than the very beginning? Wandering Soul was the first book I ever had published, and started off with Samhain Publishing, Ltd. but is now Indie published by me. It’s my take on what would happen if The Phantom of the Opera came to modern times, with my own personal take on the theme.


She saved him from death, but can he open her heart to love?

Pets in Space® 5—Scifi With A Touch of Paranormal

I’ve had lots of fun writing a werewolf on a hoverbike in my Scifi/Paranormal/Urban Fantasy Romance mashup Blades of Janus series. I decided to spread that fun around by adding a bit of the paranormal to The Department of Homeworld Security. For my story in the Pets in Space® 5 anthology, Rate of Return, I decided to explore a new group of sentients—space werewolves!

To celebrate, I’m including an excerpt from Pack below the bump. I’ll also give you the list of all the characters who celebrate a birthday today in the Sci-fi, Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, “Horroromance” world of The Blades of Janus (it’s LONG!).

One of my favorite characters in my worlds is also pretty much the hardest to talk about. His existence is a big reveal for Pack. I know that book has been out for a long time, but I keep thinking of readers who are new to the series. Just in case that’s you and you don’t like spoilers…
