Dear readers, I have such exciting news. Many of you have written to me over the past few years, asking if there would be a Spindle Cove story for Diana Highwood.  At last, I am able and delighted to answer with a definitive yes! There will be a story for Diana, and you will be able to read it on April 30th.  The title of her novella is (spoiler alert!) Beauty and the Blacksmith.  (And if you are surprised by that pairing, just think how Mrs. Highwood will feel!)  I loved writing Aaron and Diana’s story, and I can’t wait until I can tell you more about it and post excerpts, the cover, and all that goodness.  But in the meantime, just know that it exists and is coming your way soon.

I have a few events coming up.  On Saturday March 9th, I’m speaking and signing at my local RWA chapter, OCC/RWA, and on March 15-17, I’m part of the California Dreamin’ conference in Santa Ana, CA.  As part of the conference, there will be a multi-author book signing open to the public on Sunday, March 17, from 1:00 to 2:30 PM.  Other authors signing include Julia Quinn, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Elizabeth Boyle, and many more–so if you’re in the area, don’t miss it!

December is normally the time when creatures enter hibernation. I’m doing the reverse–emerging from the writing cave (and there was precious little sleeping going in there, trust me 🙂 ). I’ve turned in the manuscript for my next book, hurrah! And while I wait for revisions from my editor, I finally have some time to gear up for the holidays and, oh yes, update the website. A few sneak peeks at the new book are posted here! I wish you all a wonderful holiday season with your loved ones.… Read More »

My goodness, it’s been a busy few months, between my trip to England and all the excitement of school starting!
