What I'm working on

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I've been busy finishing my Dec 2007 book, Alaskan Fantasy. Don't let the name fool you. It's a Harlequin Intrigue full of well...intrigue! Me, my sister, Delilah Devlin, and Megan Kerans just wrapped up a class on World Building with Roses Colored Glasses. It was fun and a learning experience for us, because we haven't taught that one before. Some things you just do naturally, but how do you tell others how? We figured it out and even provided spreadsheets to track world/species traits! God, I love spreadsheets! It's the former Computer programmer and project manager in me. I'm off to TX to visit family and my sister (oh, wait, she IS family) then I'm gone to Virginia for two weeks of military duty. Ack! Nothing like back-to-back travel and commitment. Not to mention, on Dec 16th, I'm headed to Australia and New Zealand! I can hardly wait! Hope you all have terrific holidays and don't forget, my newest book comes out at the beginning of December, LAKOTA BABY. Just in time for a Christmas read.

Lakota Baby Cover!

Check out the great cover for Lakota Baby
I love the baby and the colors. It works so well with the book. Can't wait for this one to come out. Set on a Lakota Reservation in South Dakota, this book runs a mother through the ringer to find her missing child.

What I'm working on

Three weeks ago, I sent off Cowboy Sanctuary my May 2007 release. It's the third book in the Bodyguards Unlimited Continuity series with Harlequin Intrigue. I'm one of a great group of authors in the 6-book series to be released between March and August 2007. You'll see the following authors: Joanna Wayne, Ann Voss Peterson, Elle James (me!), Kathleen Long and Cassie Miles. It' pretty exciting to be offered a book when I'm still so new to Harlequin Intrigue.
Anyway, Cowboy Sanctuary is mine and it's on the editor's desk.
I'm working revisions on my Sept 07 book now. Blown Away is a political thriller based in Washington D.C. I have friends who let me come spend a day with them in D.C. taking me around to get a feel for where my characters are working and running from the enemy. What a cool place to live and work. I hope to have it finished by the end of next week.
Then I jump right into my next book. Yow! Talk about deadlines. Dec 2007 book is tentatively titled Alaskan Fantasy and is based along the Iditarod Trail. It should be a lot of fun to write. I have cousins in Alaska helping me with all the technical details of dogsledding and the terrain and weather. I hope to get that one finished by mid November. I have a lot on my plate, so I better get back to writing! Come visit me soon.

Dreamin' in Dallas Conference

Got back yesterday from the Dreamin' in Dallas Conference. It was a blast. Thanks to all who came to the booksigning on Friday night! Loved seeing you all. It was great seeing my sister Delilah Devlin and all my friends from San Antonio. I had the pleasure of my best friend from high school driving down with me, so the trip was more than just fun! We had a blast!

I've been Invited to a Continuity!

OMG! I was invited to be a part of a continuity with Harlequin Intrigue! I'm so jazzed! It's going to be called Bodyguards Unlimited and it's based in Colorado! I love bodyguars and I LOVE Colorado!! And my hero is a cowboy! I'm sooo jazzed. Can't wait to start writing it! I'll be book #3 of the series and it'll come out in May.

Beneath the Texas Moon is out!

Friends and family are reporting "sightings" of my first Harlequin Intrigue, BENEATH THE TEXAS MOON. It's on the shelves in Wal-Mart, grocery stores and bookstores! I've even received my first fan mail!
For other information on my other Harlequin Intrigues coming out this year, visit
By moving her son to Friendship, Texas, Eve Baxter had hoped to help Joey overcome the trauma of bearing witness to his father’s tragic death. Sworn off men until her son is grown and on his own, Eve resists her attraction to the haunted cowboy, Mac McGuire. But when the town falls victim to bizarre animal mutilations and the death of a teenage girl, Eve realizes she or her son could be the next casualties and reluctantly accepts Mac’s protection.
Plagued by survivor’s guilt, Mac finds an immediate connection with Eve’s little boy and a deep desire to protect the boy’s beautiful mother. With a murderous creature on the loose, Mac fights his own demons of self-doubt the struggle to save the community, the child and the woman he grows to love.
