Friday Five: Finding Reasons to Smile

I had something in the back of my mind to share this week, and then—surprise, surprise!—I got sucked down the rabbit hole of my own web site. It’s amazing how many things I’ve blocked out of my conscious memory that are recorded here for posterity and my therapist. 😂 That rabbit hole has inspired the return of a regular oldie but a goodie—The Friday Five Post. I was appalled to see I haven’t written one of these in over eighteen months. Gee, I wonder why that could be? [sarcasm] Since I am still rebuilding my blogging muscles and the world Read more…

Message from Bizarro World: You’re Not Crazy

Prodigal is just 99¢ this Week!

Who’s Afraid of Free Kidnapping Stories?

I’ll have more in-depth blog content coming to you soon, but today I wanted to pop back in again to share some coolness. And by coolness, I mean free reads, just in time for the weekend.   Kidnapped! Thrillers and Mysteries Where Kidnappers Abound features twenty-two stories about kidnappers, their victims, and the heroes who set out to find them. These tales of justice—and vengeance—include series books and standalones, romantic suspense and psychological thrillers and everything in between. My book Prodigal falls in the “in between.”  💀 Get a free novella length excerpt of Book One in the Dead Hollow series Read more…
