Back in April I participated in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge and it Kicked.My.Ass. I had to blog every day using the letters of the alphabet to generate a theme. In other words, day one my first blog post started with the letter A in the title, and then so on. Anyway, I decided to try my hand at flash fiction. Flash fiction is way shorter than a short story but still has to include a beginning, middle, and end. It's actually harder than it sounds. Oddly enough I stumble
Just so you know, I'm cringing as I write this. But I'm in a truthful mood. So here goes. I might be a wee bit obsessed with Fifty Shades of Grey. I know this series has been out for awhile. So I am going to assume that if you read contemporary romance then you have probably read the series, seen the film, or at least know about it. Now in my own defense, I was a late comer to this series. There was so much hype about the books as well as a lot of bad reviews that I pretty mu
Full disclosure: I have not published my first novel yet (coming soon!). So the idea that I would presume to speak on this topic might offend some fellow writers. But I mean no offense. I know about criticism. Trust me. It's not just limited to writers. I recently received some feedback on something pertaining to my debut novel Her Protector and it got me to thinking. Not the actual criticism per se, but the motivation behind it. We all know that how we experience art is comp
I follow very few TV shows religiously. I am more of a political news junkie along the lines of MSNBC and CNN. However, there a few shows that I tune into and might even stalk a little. Outlander, for example. C'mon, a hot Scottish dude in a kilt (check out the books)? Yes, please, and thank you. Game of Thrones. Jon Snow. I don't need to say anything else about that , do I? And then there's Power, now in it's 3rd season and more riveting than ever. Where to start? James St.
Meet Haley Provost, the heroine of my debut novel Her Protector due out November 2016. Although billionairess business woman and socialite Haley Provost shows up often on the blogs and in the news, she rarely does interviews. But recent events have caused her to be more accessible to the media than she has been willing to be in the past. The popular New York online magazine City News was fortunate enough to be granted an exclusive interview with the fiercely private heiress.
You know that movie that you’ve seen at least 100 times that no matter when it comes on you have to watch it again? I have several of those. So I had to break them down into lists. This list is my “rain or shine" list. If it comes on, I’m watching it. Rain or shine! 9 to 5- Two words. Dolly.Parton. This film is hilarious. Before Thelma and Louise it was these chicks kicking the ass of their sexist boss. They smoked some weed, maybe stole a dead body, whipped a business into s
Meet Asher Sullivan, the hero of my debut novel Her Protector due out November 2016. Here is a glimpse of Asher in all his sweet alpha glory. Asher Sullivan recently agreed to be interviewed by a popular New York online magazine. He’s been flying below the radar as the boyfriend of billionairess socialite Haley Provost acting as part of her personal security team. But recent events have thrust him into the spotlight. City News: Mr. Sullivan we really appreciate you taking the
Follow my blog on Bloglovin As a writer, I love books that talk about the craft of writing. There are thousands of books out there that are available as resource guides for writers like me. I've only read a handful. But there are a few that I use all the time. In fact, when I am working on my current manuscript, "Her Protector" I usually have them open because I refer to them so often. So I thought I would list those go-to books that I rely on to get me through the good times
As I approach the completion of my first novel “Her Protector”, I am facing many business decisions. One of those decisions is the cover art. Heads up, this is NOT a cover reveal! While I do have the cover design already done, I’m not ready to roll it out just yet. However, I have shared the cover with a couple of non-writers to get their opinions, and their feedback was interesting. One opinion stood out to me in particular. The individual questioned why I chose to put a whi
