Busy Summers & Peanut Butter!

If you are like me, you can’t believe it’s almost the middle of August! Where do our summers go? So busy!! Since June, I have finished writing four books, took a 12-day vacation, and now have had my almost 3-year-old grandson with me for a week and he’s staying for at least another week. Luckily, I have all my books written for this year so I can enjoy my time with him!

A few other of our Authors’ Billboard Authors have talked about Food in their monthly posts, so I thought I would share that I just learned how to make fresh peanut butter! It is so simple – All I do is pour a jar of Honey Roasted Peanuts into my brand new Pampered Chef Cooking Blender and set it to grind mode! Less than 3 minutes and I have perfect peanut butter!!! So good and no extra sugars! And thankful that I have this because my grandson has a peanut butter addiction!

Now, I’m not sure if my characters in the My Blood Runs Blue Series enjoy peanut butter or not, but the gang sure does have a knack for trouble! My Blood Runs Blue was the first book that I ever wrote, back in 2010. Shortly after that, I wrote Blue Blood for Life, and then the series got put on hold while I started writing a lot of other books.

In 2016, I got the chance to write a short story, The Pulse of Blue Blood, which is actually meant to go in between My Blood Runs Blue & Blue Blood for Life. For a long time, the series sat waiting for me, but I am working inally finishing it up. Mixing the Blue Blood, book 4, comes out August 21st – and the final book, Blue Bloods Final Destiny will release in the spring!

At the time that I started writing, I was a police officer. This series deals with Officer Kristin Greene finding out that there is a whole different world out there, and everything that she knew isn’t necessarily correct. It’s a sexy paranormal series with a lot of police procedural details. And right now, My Blood Runs Blue, The Pulse of Blue Blood and Mixing the Blue Blood are all $0.99 each.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your summer!!! Now off to make jam in my new cooking blender to go with my peanut butter!

Birthday’s!!

Yep, you guessed it. Today is my birthday, and it’s a big one. The Big 5-0!! Honestly, I never thought I would make it this long in life. I can think of harrowing moments from my earlier years. Not to mention being in law enforcement for sixteen years, but now that I have, I hope I have another forty years to live!

For today’s post, I’m going to share a few things about me that you probably didn’t know.

I was born in Middletown, N.Y. on June 13th, 1969, and went to 13 schools before I graduated high school. I have had 23 addresses in my life, but I’ve lived at the last one for 16 years. So 23 addresses in 34 years of life. Do you know something I’m really good at? You guessed it – Packing!

My favorite place to live was in Sarasota Florida, and it’s where I’ll be spending a few days with my family this next week to celebrate my birthday. I even lived in Hawaii for a short time. By the time I’d gotten back to the mainland, I had overdosed on fresh pineapple!

I love classic cars (Mustangs and Challengers especially), Disney, photography, walking on the beach, watching a sunrise – and a sunset. I love music and movies, and I adore my family.

I don’t drink alcohol, it messes with my brain and after two concussions, I have enough issues with that. My favorite breakfast food is bagels and cream cheese with a slice of tomato, but I don’t eat bread anymore. In fact, I don’t eat any processed foods or things that contain sugar. I miss ice cream, but I’m healthier than I have been in years!

I have two children, a son who is almost twenty-nine and a daughter who is almost sixteen. My kids are almost exactly 13 years apart, and my grandson is 13 years younger than my daughter. My granddaughter threw off the 13-year rule when she was born 2 years after her brother. I guess we’ll keep her in the family, she is kind of cute!

One thing about birthdays, I’m not a fan of receiving gifts, but I sure do love to give them! So this month, this is my gift to you:

Below are three books of mine that are all FREE! Make sure to grab a copy and treat yourself! I hope you enjoy them!

Writing Suspense

After working in law enforcement for almost sixteen years, I have seen a lot, sometimes way more than I wish I had seen. Maybe that is why I enjoy writing suspense so much! Don’t get me wrong, I love writing romance too, but suspense plots are where I like to get lost.

I find that when I start a suspense novel, I quickly get lost in it, and I love how most of the time my characters will take over the story and I’m only the means to an end for them. I can’t tell you how many times I have sat down to write a chapter and it ends up completely different than what I had first anticipated. That all has to do with the characters having their own way of doing things, and they expect me to allow them.

The best part about writing suspense to me, is adding the twists and turns. I love to keep readers guessing. There is never a better compliment to me than, “Holy cow! I never saw that coming!”

Right now, I am working on two Romantic Suspense series, and have another one planned for early next year. The Pleasure Your Fantasies series includes, Mistletoe Fantasies and Whispered Fantasies with Secret Fantasies coming this fall. I just finished writing that one and I’m so excited about it!

The other series that I’m working on is The Twisted Love Series. It’s intense and gritty and down right Twisted. The fourth book in the series just release and my readers have commented over and over again about how it is one of their favorites series! I love that!

If you’re interested in Romantic Suspense – make sure to check out The Twisted Love Series. Right now the first two books, Love Lorn & Love Torn are FREE. And the third book, Love Inked is currently $2.99. The fourth book, Love Drowned is on sale for just a little longer at $2.99 and will go up to $4.99 soon. So grab your copy at that price while you can.

And welcome to my Twisted World!

A Celebration!

On January 16th, I marked a milestone with my 40th book was published! It’s hard to believe that I have now officially published FORTY books!! Rescued, Heal Me Series, Book 4 was released that day and it marks the big occasion!!! I must admit that I have even surprised myself with this!

It’s exciting to think of all the stories that I have released and how many more I still have to write! Who would have thought that back in October 2010 when I came up with my first plot, that I would ever continue writing, much less write over 40!!!

The first year I published (2011), I released two (My Blood Runs Blue & Blue Blood for Life). In 2017, I published 18 with the help of my thirteen book Celebration Series. Right there is half of my published books in two of those years.

With each release, I find myself more humbled by the number of people who download a copy and reach out to tell me how much they enjoyed the story. I am truly humled and so happy that I can touch so many people with my writing and look forward to the future!

Now, how long do you think it will take me to hit 50 books published?
