Marie should be ready for the first weeks of beach season…

I know it looks bleak out there with winter coming. I’m editing like crazy, cleaning up and adding lots of mayo to my new sandwich, slathering it on wherever it will fit (those of you who have heard me on podcasts talking about my process know that for me, writing a book is a lot…

Patience please as I modernize…

Hey all– Thanks for your patience as I modernize my website! Inspired by one of my co-workers doing the same for some clients at my day job, I decided to upgrade to a responsive model, so that it can be viewed on a phone tablet, or other device. Still mastering my new theme, so trying…

Busy busy busy!

Hi fans and friends– You’ll be excited to know that the edits to my newest novel about Marie Prevost are going swimmingly. I’ve gotten my writing routine back in the mornings before work (so valuable to a creature of habit, like me). I’ve also been going hard at it on the weekends, thanks to the…

Pricing change, and my apologies….
