Nominated for Paranormal Romance Guild 2018! WOOOT!

Okay… first off, please keep in mind… I’m on a four day bender of li hing mui, sweet black tea and cold meds. It’s a magical combination but like all heavy duty colds, it’s a slog of sleep, coughing and wondering what day it is.

BUT a glimmer of sunrise on the dark horizon! Paranormal Romance Guild has reached out and told me I’m up for several awards for their 2018 roster. I am quite honoured and blessed to be among such fantastic writers and I wish everyone the best of luck!

So at some point, I came into contact with an agent of Satan.

Probably that toddler on the plane.

Now I have a cold.

It’s at the point of mostly icky, some miserable and just want sleep.

The dog is handling the sleep portion of my cold because I have to work so I had to outsource. He does a good job. Because man, he’s asleep and snoring.

Hellion’s going well. Or so I think. I’m excited about a plot point. It’s just a matter of trying to hit it right. That’s always the struggling point in a book. Is this angle working and did the author pull it off.

Sadly, I can’t actually use a lot of cold medicine because of the meds I take. I also hate NyQuil. And half a Benadryl will take me out into a coma for days. Seriously. I don’t know how people take two of them. I look at a damned Benadryl and I pass out.

So, it’s going to be sweet black tea…hot and with li hing mui lemon in it.

Twenty-Nineteen

I wanted to drop a quick hey and wish you all a Happy New Year.

After spending two weeks or so in the wilds of Hawai’i, I am back home in San Diego having fed my friends and family much food. Now is the time to head back into the grind and work on Ivo’s story.

I’m much happier with the plot and hope I can do the boy justice. *grins*

And now… Connor and Forest.

“She’s only getting the two,” Forest muttered, digging through his suitcase for the pair of jeans he knew he’d packed in its voluminous interior. “Shit, I didn’t even give birth to them and I feel every single damned stretchmark and worry line a mother’s got. No more. We’re not having any more.” Continue reading “Tutus and Tinsel Blog Tour’s Last Stop! Connor and Forest!”

Tutus and Tinsel
Zig Reid-Harris has everything an eleven-year-old girl could ever want: a great home, two fantastic fathers named Deacon Reid and Lang Harris, and all the books she could possible read.

When a school assignment about holiday traditions unexpectedly broadsides her, she discovers burying the past isn’t as easy as it looks, and the stark reality of her life before her adoption sinks in. Ashamed of the bleakness and poverty she came from, Zig struggles with the assignment until an epiphany strikes the whole family—it’s time to start their own traditions.

Zig and her fathers plunge into the insanity of holiday joy, exploring everything the season has to offer and learning how precious family truly is along the way.
