Here we are approaching the new year! Many of us are looking forward to 2019, and the rest of us are looking back. (If you are looking forward and backwards at the same time, you have a talent that needs explaining.)
I’d like to mention all my “last” things of 2018.Read More
I don’t know about you, but this time of year can be tough to manage. I’m not talking just financially but timewise. I have a book in editing, another one in process, and I have this long list of tasks to perform to get ready for the holidays.Read More
Sorry I’ve been out of touch, but I have been busy writing the 26th book of the Haunted Series. It’s called Sideshow.
I went to bed last night knowing I was one chapter from being finished with my first draft. Naturally, I dreamed about Sideshow as my subconscious continued to work on finishing the book while I slept. I woke up early, too early, but it was either be entertained by a power-craving inner librarian or get up and write. I chose to write.
I sat, predawn, and stared as the cursor continued to blink on a white screen while I waited for the coffee to work on my caffeine-starved brain. Where do I go with this? I decided to read the last five chapters, and then Chapter Forty-five flowed out of me. The first draft of Sideshow is finished! Woo Hoo!Read More
Mia is more determined than ever to get her life in order. She’s seeing Baxter for cognitive behavioral therapy. No more accidental engagements, flirting with riffraff, and misunderstandings. Mia has turned over a new leaf. She’s determined to have a reasonably normal happy family life….Read More
Coming soon. Don’t you love those words? They are a vague way of saying hey, my book is coming, but I don’t know exactly when. But not today! Coming on Monday, October 22nd, I will be releasing my twenty-fifth Haunted Series novel A Daughter of Nyx. Because this is such a milestone, we at Ravens’ Rook have decided to combine the first three novels, The Hauntings of Cold Creek Hollow, Ghostly Attachments, and Sand Trap, into an omnibus for $6.99, for a limited time, starting Monday if not sooner. If you have peeps, who you know would love PEEPs, now is the perfect time for them to pick up a new addiction. Tell them, it’s a wonderful gift to give themselves. Just in time for the hollow days.Read More
I get asked frequently which character in the Haunted Series is most like me. I really can’t pin one down, but there are aspects of me in all of them. I draw from my experience, strengths, and insecurities to develop my characters. I also use my observations of how people react to create, hopefully, realistic scenes in a fictional world.
In The Hauntings of Cold Creek Hollow, I introduce you to Mia who is bitter at the way the town treats her; yet, she’s their handy person, dogsbody if you will. Her language is crude – according to Murphy, it’s from a parental lack of soap application. The evolution of Mia over 24, now 25, books is amazing. She goes from being a leaf in the wind to being the wind. But, occasionally, she still could do with a little bar of soap.Read More
