First off, I want to congratulate Amy D. of Gentry, Arkansas for winning my Spring Giveaway Extravaganza! She posted a pic of her prize package on Facebook, so I think she's pretty excited about receiving it!
Thanks also to my new webmistress, Carol. My newsletter and its sign up form are functioning with style.
Secondly, Amazon & Barnes and Noble are running a sale on all the books in my Cursed Princes series! Kindle & Nook versions of my full-length novels are $1.99 Novellas are only .99 cents.
If you haven't read any of my books yet, now is a great time!
Finally, I just tried my first mint julep and let me say, I'm obsessed. Nothing is more refreshing on a spring day. Okay, I may not be at the Kentucky Derby or in the south at all, but I love sipping this delicious beverage on my porch while I watch the sun go down.
Enjoy this classic recipe!
To highball glass or silver Julep cup, add minted simple syrup, then 1 cup crushed ice, bourbon, and splash of water. Add enough of remaining ice to almost fill glass. Stir well and garnish with mint sprig.

I just registered for my very first Romance Writer's of America National Conference!
Since California is a hop, skip, and a jump away from where I live, I'll be loading up my car and driving to breezy San Diego this July. (Who wouldn't want to escape the brutally hot weather in Arizona that time of year!)
Besides offering incredible craft workshops and revered guest speakers, RWA conferences are also opportunities for romance writers to connect with their wonderful readers. I will be signing at the big Literacy Autography Event on Wednesday, July 13 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Proceeds for anyone purchasing a book will go to various literacy awareness charities.
Win, win!
Hope to see you there!
 Meanwhile, I just sent off two new manuscripts to my fabulous literary agent. The first book is a sultry historical romance that will kick off a new series for me. The other is a chilling psychological thriller in the vein of The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl. This one was written under the pen name Gwen London.
Wish me luck as my agent shops them around!

Hope your spring is delightful. I'd love to hear what you've been up to...

Wait a minute..where did October go! Time flies, but that's okay. Fall is my favorite season by far. In Arizona, it means we can wave goodbye to three digit temperatures (at least 'til April or May!!) Fall also means sweater weather and reading romance with a pumpkin-spiced latte by our side. 
It's been a rough start of the school year for me. My eldest daughter went off to college (takes a moment to sniffle) and a few health scares have plagued me and my family, but I'm always looking onward and upward.
Lovely readers - I'd love to hear how you are doing! Feel free to shoot me a few lines via my website's contact form. Also, for those of you who are interested in my new releases, I'm working on getting a newsletter sign-up up and running. (I know, I know. I'm super behind on that.)
Will post when ready.
Anyway, I can tell you that Amazon put all the books in my Cursed Princes series on sale.
Here's the lowdown:
Kindle versions
...and you can buy the whole boxed set for $11.04
Happy start of the holiday season, my friends!!

Happy Summer, everyone!
Wow! Now that the sizzling June sun is upon us, I wonder, what DIDN'T happen in May?
My daughters graduated from high school and middle school, I got into a car accident -- was rear-ended on the freeway, but I'm okay -- and I went to the Romantic Times Convention in Dallas! It was so rewarding to meet some of my readers and to chat with bloggers who review my books. It was also fun to meet other Kensington authors like Sally MacKenzie (photo 1), Joanna Shupe (photo 2), and Ella Quinn and Sabine Priestley (photo 3) at the Kensington Readers' Party.
Margaritas flowed, an obscene amount of candy was consumed, and books were handed out.
All in all, it was a great time!
Where will the convention be next year? Vegas, baby!
