Another Year Gone By


2018 was a year of resolution for me. Not like New Year's resolutions where you say you're going to start exercising and quit eating cake but instead gain twenty pounds and eat ALL the cake ALL the time. I mean resolution as in, I resolved some things and I'm slowly moving forward.

The first resolution for me relates to my health. The last three years have been...well...not very good health-wise. I've had multiple E.R. visits and so many doctor's appointments it isn't funny. I've also had two surgeries and a whole lot of pain. As this year closes, I'm happy (and a little cautious) to say that things are looking good. My last surgery appears to have been successful and I'm slowly regaining my strength and stamina.

My day job related resolution actually closes a lot of turmoil I had about my job. Over the years I faced a lot of frustration and anger at the workload and the stress that came with it. I kept having to make constant choices over dividing my time between writing and doing overtime day job work. Overworking actually contributed to some of my health issues as well. In April last year I applied for a new job, one that really suited me and that I wanted for a long time. Much to my surprise, I got it! It's a three-four year contract in the same profession but with very different day-to-day activities. It's giving me a chance to learn a lot and it's also helping me reset and renew my passion for my career.

With regards to writing, resolution came in the form of acceptance.  After my publisher closed and I got picked up by a new one, I was a little lost. I was writing a lot but those projects were sitting on my hard drive because I wasn't sure what to do with them. There was a period of time where I was stuck in publishing limbo. This year I got my shit together and released three books.

Burning Kiss






The Witches of White Willow





AND Feral Heart



I'm really proud of that. After all the ups and downs I've had with regards to my publishing career, getting the ball rolling again feels great. It wasn't all a cake walk, lots of hard work went into getting those books out but it's been very worth it.

I've also written four new books this year, and you'll be seeing the fruits of my labor in 2019.

I got to do an event with my long-time writing friend Krista Walsh which was a lot of fun. (And also a great learning experience where public readings are concerned.) Once again Forster's Book Garden hosted me. Their support over the past few years has been totally amazing.




All in all, 2018 was very busy and when I look back at all the things that happened I wonder how I managed it all. Looking forward to 2019, I know I'll be working just as hard because I have many things planned that will continue to move me forward. Where 2018 was about resolution, 2019 will be about moving on with strength and peace of mind and hopefully a whole lot of success. 

I wish you all a Happy New Year and thank you for sharing this journey with me!

Feral Heart is HERE!


Book 2 of my Witch Hospital Romance series, Feral Heart, is out today! It's a stand alone novel so you don't have to have read The Witches of White Willow to know what's going on (but I mean, come on, why haven't you read The Witches of White Willow?)


Available at all preferred retailers!

A feral heart might bite but it’s the heart that needs love the most.
Bas Frank is a tough guy—a witch apart from others, and that’s the way he likes it. He learned young that human witches couldn’t be trusted with magic after his mother paid the ultimate price. His hatred has molded into armor over the years, putting his academic ambitions to the test when White Willow opens its doors to human witches.
When a dangerous incident lands Bas in trouble, he finds himself working in the dungeon, which isn’t as bad as it could be, considering his supervisor, Familiar Keeper Mina Knox, is hot-as-hell and takes no crap. He’s so enamored he falls in instant-lust…before the hammer drops and he learns about her human lineage.
But even with a lifetime of prejudice screaming at him that she can’t be trusted, Bas finds it impossible to keep his distance. He doesn’t want or expect to fall in love, but Mina’s compassion chinks his armor, and once a shield is weakened, it’s only a matter of time before it all comes crashing down.

  Buy, read, enjoy!
