    Back to Work in 3….2….

    It’s back to work time! June 1st is the day I put my seat in my chair and get back to it after a full year of maternity leave! Yahoo! I’ve been spending the last few months dusting off my manuscripts, cracking my knuckles and doing fingertip exercises (and one, and two, and one, and two, and one…)  in preparation for the big day. I’ve also been noodling (read:thinking) about a fun back to work idea and that’s a big fat freebie of my very first book!! (I say this as if there’s soooo many the first one is a thousand books behind me. ๐Ÿ˜†) Starting June 1st get The…

    Happy Thanksgiving! And Giveaway!

    Happy thanksgiving everyone! As a celebration of thanking and giving we’re putting The Legend of Lady MacLaoch and Forged up for free on the Amazon Kindle starting next week! As for mommy-writerly stuff, things have been pretty busy for me in the last few months since my son has discovered walking and his own ability to discover things (read: chasing a toddler, harnessing a toddler, calming a toddler, entertaining a toddler…), deadlines have been delayed and entire scenes rewritten, but there’s hope! Fingers crossed we’ll get Serendipity of Fate 2.0 off to the editor in January and out to readers by the spring. (!!) After Serendipity, the next novel in…

    Heatin’ UP!

    So…. Portland has pretty much been The Gates of Hell hot this summer. As Northwesterners we enjoy the foggy days, endless rain and suicidal tendencies from not witnessing the sun for nine months straight. So when we get a blazing hot summer as we’ve gotten this year, we complain. A lot. This year the number of days where it has been in the nineties and hundreds (Fahrenheit, people) has been in the 10 multiplier range. As in MONTHS of blistering heat. Personally, I’m so ready for cool weather and rain that upon seeing the rainy forcast for this week, I wept. Or maybe it was a trickle of sweat, I’m…
