I recently had some fun with Natasja Hallenthal, a published author and book cover designer at Beyond Book Covers. Together we came up with a new cover for one of my favorite books, The Spirit Child. Natasja is super talented and wonderful to work with. Thank you, Natasja!
Next, I’d liket to introduce you to Nathaniel Gauthier, a young mage who begins life a little awkwardly, but is destined for great things. He makes his debut in the soon to be released novel, Mage of Merigor.
In addition to that, I’m still working on the fourth book in the Alex Wolfe Mystery Series, Credo’s Bones. In April, I’m going in for hip surgery, and hope to have a lot of time to follow Alex and her buddies around and report on the trouble they always seem to get into. I’ll keep you posted.
As always, if you’d like to receive updates on upcoming book releases and would like to receive the first book in the Alex Wolfe mystery series completely free of charge, please join me by signing up for my Newsletter

Gift Ideas for Writers I absolutely love this time of year. The idea of dressing up my house with beautiful lights and wonderful smells is something I’ve looked forward to ever since I was a small child. I remember my dad pulling down box after box of tree decorations...read more
One truism I’ve found as a writer is it’s easier to let life get in the way of writing than to let writing get in the way of life. I’ve decided to turn that trend around and get back to the business of writing. Five years ago, I was easily writing up to 3000...read more
