Updated: May 22

It's May! (Anyone seen this movie? Great but NOT for the faint of heart.) I hear things are starting to open up around the world... except here in Boston. Sigh. But maybe mid-May? Maybe things can return to "normal," though "normal" is somewhat in flux these days. How are things looking where you are? Sending love and support with all the uncertainty to you and yours. ♥️

Here's my latest scoop...


Secret project announced = Harbingers of Death:

I'm co-authoring a supernatural prison task-force trilogy with my #writingtwin LeAnn Mason. About a gritty banshee with piercings, guages, and silver hair who's new to her death-announcing powers. Check out the new logo --> (Harbingers of Death Prison Unit = DPU) Lots of myth/supernatural creatures. Book 1, Mortal Scream, is moving FAST -- we hope to have it done soon! Cover coming sooner! More to be revealed in

Loan Soul:

Four Poor Souls (LS #4) is at about 50%. Larkynn is coming in July 2020!

Dryad story:

Abi the dryad is being picked up again -- she's got all her covers in and will be aiming for a fall 2020 release!

New Fae story:

The prequel to the series I'm tentatively calling Branwyn Blood: Texas Fae has roped me in! I wasn't expecting this but it's grabbed my mind and I'm trucking along at about 20%... It's dark. Like: all the terrifying stories about fae snatching and eating humans suspense dark. Based on Welsh mythology. Releasing 2021.

Dreamcatcher mythology action:

This one is a bit on pause but at about 15%. For 2021-2022.

Medusa dark romantic fantasy:

Comes and goes between other projects. Also about 15%. Ror 2021-2022.

Week 4 of work from home with my day job. Week longer-than-4-but-I've-lost-track-of-time of fresh groceries. I'm subsisting on protein bars and Goldfish from Amazon and bread and cheese from the corner market down the street.

How are you managing? I hope you and yours are healthy, well, and staying safe and sane. ♥️

Almost out of TP, soap, & food, Massachusetts bars/restaurants closed for a month ... BUT liquor store was stocked + authors (me too! see below) generously offering free books = bring on quarantine AKA forced-diet. :P *Digs out hoard of mini hotel body wash from under the sink and unwraps protein bar* GET CREATIVE, Y'ALL!

But in all seriousness, even if you're unlikely to experience anything more than flu-like symptoms, please be safe and stay home to prevent transmitting the virus to who are more at risk from COVID-19. It's a trying time, so think of how to be healthy -- mental health included, especially while staying home. I'm here to help however I can -- get in touch! And sending you all CCD-approved virtual hugs and support.

It's heartwarming to see so many folks supporting each other right now. Love in the time of Corona ♥️
