And then she came back...


So, I survived the RT Convention in Dallas...do I get some kind of badge or something? lol

What a fabulous, exciting, totally exhausting time I had! There was wicked weather, humidity the likes of which my hair couldn't comprehend, and lots and lots of books!

There were some bucket list things I set out to do while in Texas.

1) Eat steak and eggs, Texas style.

And HOLY CRAP, it was the best steak and eggs of my life! Yes, that's butter sauce all over the top of it. Heart attack city but so, so worth it.

2) Meet up with some of my fabulous writing friends.


I finally got to meet D.B. Reynolds in person! It was so awesome being able to chat with her in the flesh rather than our usual on line chats. She has been a good friend to me over the years and I loved being able to give her a hug in real life! (Yes, you read that right. I hugged at RT. A LOT!)

And I also reconnected with Julie/Seleste, a long time writing friend. We've met up in person before in Toronto but that was a long time ago (way back when I was pregnant with my son). She was gracious enough to help me navigate the insanity of the giant book fair and we had lots of fun sitting across the aisle from one another throwing chocolate kisses.


The book fair was quite the experience. I got to meet some of the wonderful reviewers who have been so supportive of The Order series. I also had the pleasure of sitting next to Cherry Adair, who is totally hilarious and very generous. She gave me some stickers to put on my books and kept me chocolate fed and laughing.


I also got to spend some time with Kyla Holt, another writing friend who I'd never actually met in person. She's super sweet and a blast to hang out with. She promised me she would come up to Canada soon so I'm expecting a visit any day now ;-)



And Jodi Redford, who, sadly, I didn't get a picture with, but who gave me some great advice and tips for some of my future goals. Awesome lady to get to know and lots of fun to chat with.

There were many other amazing ladies that I met at the convention, readers, reviewers, bloggers and authors who made the whole trip very memorable.

The last thing I did that I'd set out to accomplish was...

3) Meet Kresley Cole!!! And I did...


She was wonderful and autographed a book for me. :-D

I also got to meet and get an autograph from Christopher Rice, which is great since I met up with his mom back in November too. Full family experience in my author life. lol

RT is a crazy hectic, fun time. I met a lot of new people, readers, reviewers, bloggers, other authors. Everyone was friendly and I really loved Texas; the accents are so awesome.

I plan on sending out a newsletter in the next couple of weeks where I'll reveal the cover of Valiant Heart, book 6 in the Order of the Wolf series.  It's super hot and you don't want to have to wait so get a glimpse of Lance ;-)

So if you're interested in a sneak peek, sign up for my newsletter.


That's it for now, folks. I'm sure other tid bits from the con will pop up here and there...it's just too much to process all at once.

Exciting Things!!



I'm not one for New Year's Resolutions but I did say that I'd post more frequently on here so I'm sticking to my word.

I have a few exiting things to talk about.

First, I just found out that Fresh Fiction named Wolves' Bane as the Fresh Pick this week for Supernatural Thursday! Yay!

Also, I have the gorgeous cover for Mayhem which is set to release in August!




And finally, I've signed a contract for book 6 in the Order of the Wolf Series, Valiant Heart! It's set to release in November :-) This is Lance's story, folks, and I know a lot of people are very into his character.


I'm busy working on edits for Mayhem, planning my blog tour for Spell Weaver's release in April and also have a secret project in the works that's currently with my amazing beta readers. So, yeah, there's a lot of exciting things happening!

You want romance? I'll give you romance...


As you all undoubtedly know, I am not a huge fan of the Valentine's Day shenanigans. It's not that I don't like romance, I just don't like romance that's forced upon me in a contrived way and I certainly don't like romance that's overly sappy or printed on a card or teddy bear or...well, you get the idea.

My husband and I have been married for ten years. We just celebrated the big 1-0 a few months ago.
We've been together for seventeen years which is a long time of togetherness. I can be a tough person to be with. I'm stubborn, a workaholic, I can't cook well and I hate cleaning. Despite all of that, he never lets me forget that he loves me, not only in words (and recently also in text--he was a late comer to the smart phone phenomena) but also in the little things he does to make sure my life is better (my car is drivable,  the house looks nice, the way he takes care of our kids, cleans my gun, etc).

We got married here at Casa Loma. You'll look at the pictures and think fairy tale I'm sure.  I never really considered it over the top romantic until I was talking about it one day at work and was told that it was the most romantic place EVER! To me it's the place that we went on our first date (well, we sat outside actually because it was after hours) and one of many old mansions that we have toured over the years.  The point is that it's a place that means something to both of us and it's not romantic because it looks like a castle, it's romantic because it was the place that first connected us by our love of old architecture....one knot that tied us together at the very beginning which has spawned thousands of other knots over the years. So, after seventeen years of knots, we are all tied up and I couldn't imagine not having him at my side.

So there, I did a little mush just for V-Day ;-) Now where's the chocolate?

It's February! There are Contests!! Yay!


Okay, so February is kind of a blah month for me. I'm not a huge V-Day fan (although I do like chocolate) and it's typically the coldest, most dreary time of year up here in the great white North.

So, to spice things up a bit, I'm participating in two super fun blog events that have prizes to go along with them!

The first contest is happening over at E.J. Stevens Blog. For a chance to win an e-copy of Wolves' Bane, all you have to do is comment and you're entered! The winner will be randomly chosen and announced on Feb. 18!

The second contest is actually a super fun Scavenger Hunt hosted by:


I've got a blog post happening on Feb. 4, all you have to do is comment over at Coffee Time Romance and More for a chance to win a signed paperback copy of Wolves' Bane! A random winner will be chosen on Feb. 12! Don't forget to leave your email address so I can contact you!

For a chance to win a signed paperback of Wolves' Bane, click here!


For those of you participating in the Coffee Time Romance and More scavenger hunt, your clue is below! Good luck!



I hope these festivities help brighten up the February dreariness!
