While spending many lazy hours at the beach, we ran across a pair of seagulls having a bit of a falling out. While I know that the coloring of these birds have less to do with sex and more to do with age, it amused us to create a story around these two.
A warning: this post is photo heavy, though I tried to keep them to a reasonable size. Continue reading “Betrayal: A Seagull Soap Opera”

Rec a Series is a monthly post highlighting one of my favorite series, past or present. This month’s spotlight is on that other paranormal series by Nalini Singh. No, not the one with the sexy Psy: Judd, Vasic, Aden, and Kaleb. I’ll cover that series later. Kaleb, by the way, is mine. I’ll cut a bitch. Just saying. This is Raphael and Elena’s series. You know, the one with the angels who make vampires and rarely, so rarely even the angels forgot, the archangels make other angels. Continue reading “Rec a Series: Guild Hunter”
It’s been several busy months since I’ve posted an update to my favorite space couple. Most of the new material needed to flesh out the front end of the novel is now complete and I can work towards weaving in existing material. This process has been slower than I’d like, but I confess to enjoying the summer weather (and new book releases) a bit too much to have proper motivation. All in all, here’s the lowdown on progress: Continue reading “Petri Update: Summer Edition”
We’ve all heard the phrase: “They’ve ruined my childhood!” Some of us have said it, half in jest, half in frustration. We hate it when the things we loved as kids get remade, reimagined, screwed up, or just screwed with. So in the spirit of this, in sympathy and even empathy, let’s talk about Pokémon GO. ((This is a real photo heavy post. Just FYI))

Rec a Series is a monthly post highlighting one of my favorite series, past or present. This month’s spotlight is on a lesser known series by one of my favorite urban fantasy authors. Best known for their kick-ass heroine Kate Daniels, the husband/wife team of Ilona Andrews also created a world of multiple dimensions. The Broken—a world without magic but with things like cell phones and Walmart. Our world. The real world? Then there’s the Weird where magic runs high. Bluebloods rule, changelings are shut away as children and trained to be an elite but expendable fighting force, and the air force consists of griffins. But the most fascinating stories? Those dwell in the Edge. Continue reading “Rec a Series: The Edge”
Look at that new cover. Isn’t it shiny?
In 2011, I wrote a serialized historical romance called Emeralds and Ice. The main leads, a nobleman and a poor orphan, met and fell in love amidst danger and mystery and misunderstandings.Together, they vanquished the bad guy and ran off into the sunset to live happily ever after. Their names were Draike Weatherby and Olivia Lawrence. Three years after writing that story, I dragged it into the modern era, threw in some shifters and vampires, renamed it The Fox’s Mate, and published it through a small press. Last week, rights in hand, I rereleased it as an Amazon exclusive to experiment with Kindle Unlimited. Continue reading “ReRelease: The Fox’s Mate”
Rec a Series is a monthly post highlighting one of my favorite series, past or present. I’m a sucker for stories that meddle with history. I’m really a sucker for those that play around with mythology. When I stumbled across one that not only plays with one myth but with every single one imaginable, I knew I’d found a favorite. Having a hilariously pervy hound doesn’t hurt, either. Continue reading “Rec a Series: The Iron Druid Chronicles”
