Thank you for stopping by. I know... this page so rarely changes, as I've been swamped. The good news is, I'm back in the saddle—I've finished the dark gothic suspense (not at all in the tone of Bobbie Faye), and I'll let you know more about when and where that will be available when I know something myself. I'm in the process of writing something light and funny, though, so next year, there will be at least two books out from me—one dark, one light. There will also likely be a novella, but I'm not exactly sure when. Check back here or sign up for the newsletter to see release information as soon as I have it.
What's new, though, is that I'm in the process of remodeling a place in the French Quarter which will be our home. It's a fairly massive project that has been a dream and an adventure. And, since I will be offering my home and will be one of the hosts for the party next May for the Librarians, Booksellers, and Reviewers, I thought I'd start up the blog again with information about New Orleans, places to go, things to do, what to avoid, what to see, a local's point of view, and plenty of photos for you to track along with me. I'll also be posting photos and blogging about the remodel project; since it's a historical building, it may be of interest to those of you who like DIY projects / interior design / architecture. Lastly, because I've ramped up my photography, you'll start seeing some of those pics here, as well.
If you missed why I paused the writing career over the last couple of years, please see this essay.
And... since I'm back, be sure to sign up for the very occasional / I am too lazy to do it often newsletter because I will soon be having contests and giveaways and secret free reads for just those on the newsletter mailing list.
Mostly, thank you all for sticking with me. You helped me through a really horrible couple of years, and you're still helping. I cannot emphasize enough how much those letters and thoughts via email and Facebook have meant to me.
Y'all take care out there,
If you're looking for the Bobbie Faye trilogy, you're in the right place. The three titles are:
Charmed and Dangerous
There are also two short stories: HEAT (which is a pre-quel) and A FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE (which takes place between books 2 and 3), and which was original published in the acclaimed KILLER YEAR: STORIES TO DIE FOR anthology. (The first two books were originally released as trade paperbacks, with different titles. Both books have extras, especially book two, so I really prefer the mass market versions shown here. Check out the FAQ for more information about the other titles and why the changes.)
