Good Golly It's Been A Long Time! 

It's so good to be back in front of a keyboard. I've been busy with life, you know how that gets in the way...
My mother passed away, I got divorced, changed jobs, and then out of the blue found a wonderful man made just for me.

Best 5 Star Review of A Gift for Emily, Ever!!

When I released my first book, A Kiss for Emily, I found one of the most exciting parts of being an author was waiting for the reviews to come in. I've found the same to be true with my second book, A Gift for Emily.

Sun Mountain Reviews gave it a "Top of the Mountain" score, equivalent to 5 stars. What makes this review the best review ever is that this reviewer is very creative in her style!!! I hope you'll take the time to her talent and review of A Gift for Emily!

She called it, "Fantastic!"

How could I get any happier after reading Beta-reader's review of "A Gift for Emily"? She called the book, "Fantastic!"

I am only days away from sending the second book for publishing... life is pretty good right now.

Don't Stop the Party!

"A Kiss for Emily" is burning up the charts today! Is it in the top 100? Oh, yeah! #1 in the teen/fantasy and #11 in paranormal. Won't you join in a big, loud whoot!

Character Development

I didn't see it coming. One of my characters fell in love.

"Well, you write romance," you say, "so this is to be expect."

But it wasn't. He was supposed to be stuck on himself. And after many brutal hours of trying to keep him in his place, I hit the delete button and started over. I let him take the lead, and the scene progressed quickly.

I am proud of my character. I am proud of me.

A Gift for Emily...coming soon!

A Gift for Emily is off to the editor!

As a writer, I often feel the old saying, "There is no such thing as rest for the the wicked," applies to my life; not that I'm wicked, but that there is always too much to do. 

After sending the manuscript off to the editor, I spent an entire 5 minutes celebrating the fact that I completed A Gift for Emily. Then the panic hit me: I need to include the first chapter of the third book as a teaser!!! Back to the keyboard I went. 

I'm really not complaining....I love being an author. With that, please be on the lookout within the next few weeks for the second book in The Emily Stokes Series... coming to eReaders and paperback.
