Sent off three chapters today, so that’s exciting 🙂 I admit, this one is going slowly, probably because it’s a transition book. I’ve never written a transition story before, so I haven’t *quite* gotten down the nuances and the flow of it. Plus, I want to make sure that it’s the best that I can write, and not just put out sub-standard fair, which the last manuscript WAS.

I just wanted to drop a line, give ya’ll updates, let you know that I’m still plugging away at Magick! Oh, there is so much more I know I wanted to say, but I totally forgot what it was. Something wise and motivational, but for the life of me, I can’t recall it. Oh, the vagaries of getting older!

Bad news- Magick won’t be released on December 17th unless my editor can work miracles. After a month of strep-throat, bronchitis, Thanksgiving, and an upper-respiratory infection that wouldn’t go away (the whole frickin house was sick…), I managed to squeek through the last 10K words on Magick, but it is going to take heavy revisions. I followed that old addage of “it doesn’t matter what you write, just write”. Eh, that’s a double-edged sword. I don’t really like where the story went, but as we all know, characters and flow have a way of taking on a life of their own. I will have to see what my editor says.

Good news- Magick is finished- at least until the red pen comes back. I’m hoping it will only be delayed a month (fingers crossed!). In the meantime, I’m starting to read it today so I can try to anticipate what my editor comes back with and be pro-active! As much as anyone can be pro-active through a Nyquil hangover. Anyway, I digress. I have a month of light work ahead of me, so that’s plenty of time to get Magick polished and off for publishing. Then it’s on to Solstice, Harley and Damien’s story, and that’s going to be a doosie! Stayed tuned for updates! And maybe some little tidbits 🙂

It all began…(spoilers)

So, I had my vampire, but I needed his mate. What kind of woman would attract a vampire? Quirky ingenue? Brunette bombshell? Nah, not my girl. I wanted a brainy, independent loner who was absorbed by her career. A woman who had no need for male companionship.  A woman consumed by finding an answer.

Gareth was already working on XP in my mind, so I thought to myself that this was the best way to bring them together. Through research. But why was Anna searching so hard for a cure for XP? Because her mother had XP and died from it. And then other tragic things happened. I don’t want to give it all away…

Anna is young, she’s self-sufficient, but she is essentially a hermit. She has no friends, by her own choice, she doesn’t have long-lasting relationships, and she never opens herself up to experiences. She loves the lab, loves the research, and loves the act of discovery, although she has no desire for the spotlight.

She’s pretty much isolated herself, so the thing that breaks her out of that shell had to be pretty amazing. Especially since she wasn’t looking to move out of her comfort zone. To me, only love and instant attraction can burst that bubble!

I hope you enjoy Gareth and Anna’s story, because they are wonderful people to get to know! More on the rest of the trilogy later…

I have been away too long! Things got a little crazy there for a bit, with animals going to the vet and bringing a new puppy home, and trying to get some work done on Choices AND Magick…I just didn’t have the time! Can I not just skip sleep? If I could skip sleep and drink copious amounts of coffee, I’d be ok!

So I’m introducing a new character into the Immortals and Magick Trilogy, and he will be introduced in the third book. His name is Jaryth….well, I can’t give you his last name because I don’t believe in spoilers! Let’s just say he’s another vampire in Padraigan’s arsenal, but has close ties to one of the gang.

Jaryth is just your typical teenage vampire who is a couple of centuries old- he’s a little emo, a little tortured, and favors skinny jeans. But Jaryth has a secret, and things are not as they seem…

Stay tuned for more updates on Magick, Choices, Blood Moon, and many more!

Am I weird?

The answer to that, of course, is yes. I AM weird. I know this, and frankly, I am A-ok with it. Let’s face it, most writer’s have to have a streak of strange in them, or else how would we write? We have voices in our heads telling us what to write! Most people find that a bit weird. Have no fear, the voices have great ideas….

From a very young age, I’ve had an active imagination. Also from that very young age, I have been in love with the paranormal. My mother used to tell us stories of my aunt’s haunted house in New Jersey, and how she used to feel like someone was watching her when she would babysit her niece and nephews. Instead of scaring me (like rabid Saint Bernards did), I was fascinated by it. I wanted, and needed, to know more.


About that time in my life, I also found vampires, witches, werewolves and all manner of things that go bump in the night. Surprisingly enough, my first taste of vampires was not Bram Stoker or The Lost Boys – it was a series of books by Time-Life, called Mysteries of the Unknown. I don’t know why, but for some reason my mother fostered this love of the paranormal in me. She wouldn’t buy the Encyclopedia Brittanica, but she got me every volume of Mysteries over the course of four years.

Although my writing is mostly romance, which I fell in love with (no pun intended) a few years after my love of the paranormal started, I am drawn to writing horror. However, my horror career is slow to spark, mostly because I scare myself when I write. Yes, that’s what I said. I’m not saying my horror is scary to everyone, I’m just saying that I have an active imagination and when I’m writing horror, especially when I’m alone…I get scared 🙂

So, the next few novels from me will be strictly romance- some paranormal, some contemporary- but I do have two or three novels of horror in the works…stay tuned for a taste!
