They scrambled up to the cockpit, two chairs side-by-side with a small space between them. Pete motioned for Ben to sit in the left side, the captain’s chair, and sat in the co-pilot’s seat. The cockpit smelled of leather seats, hot metal baking in the sun and the pungent tang of engine oil. Ben delicately […]

T-minus 3 days until my book release!

And let me just tell you emotions are running high around here! There’s a tremendous sense of excitement, some trepidation, a bit of flat-out exhaustion and great deal of nervousness — I want to know what everyone thinks of it! I’ve been accomplishing such glamorously fancy writerly things like washing dishes, doing laundry, grocery shopping […]

Hey, did I mention I’ve got a book coming out yet?

…she says with her tongue firmly planted in her cheek. Five days away from launch date, and I’m in a flurry of promotional work behind the scenes — I’ve got guest blog posts and interviews coming up, polishing my website, figuring out how to schedule tweets and blog posts and such. Most of the time, […]

Snow! Slush! Slipping! And Virtual Book Tour Dates!

  These are my favorite trees on my morning commute and I couldn’t help but stop and take a few photos (stylish and trendy blurring effects courtesy of Google Photos…) We have about 15cm or so of snow, and with all the city sidewalk feet tromping on it, it’s quickly becoming just a vast glacier. […]

Right Here Waiting is currently ranked at #163,167 on the best sellers ranking list!!

Now, this may seem like a laughable number to be ridiculously excited about. BUT when it first went up on that site, it was ranked at #1,694,942. Yes. ONE MIIIIIILLIION (I say in my very best Dr. Evil voice.) And I know that the rankings are constantly in flux, and their change is dependent on […]


This actually works out well for me. Living in France here, there’s not so many bookshops selling English-language books nearby that I could make a tour of them. Well, I suppose I could make a tour of them, but it’d be over in about an hour. *grin* So, without further ado, the dates and URLs of […]

Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

Just because it’s a cliche to quote The Carpenters every time it rains doesn’t mean that it’s not the perfect rainy day song… It is cold and rainy where I am. It’s been raining for days. I am laid up with a bum knee and am hobbling on crutches when I have to leave my armchair-with-matching-footstool (such […]

So…..what’s your book about???

My book, Right Here Waiting, is a World War II romance novel, centering around Peter Montgomery and the love of his life, Ben Williams and the adventures they find themselves in. That’s right. It’s a love story about two men, in love with each other, set in WWII. yes, but is that really realistic? well, […]

It has just been one of those days around here…

I’ve injured myself — just badly enough to throw a wrench in my plans and be an all-around pain in the patookas. I’m on crutches for at least the next week, and being on crutches just makes everything seem 95x more difficult. Being able to buy only the amount of groceries that will fit in […]

Today is a day for being writerly

The holidays are safely behind me, and I’m sitting down to read through and sign off on the final galleys of my book, Right Here Waiting. “We are only looking for typos and errata,” one of my editors says, and I can just imagine his fond glare as he narrows his eyes and shakes his finger at […]
