Weekly Update #amwriting

I took this photo during my first trip to the Frick Collection in New York’s Upper West Side three years ago this week. It was from a free paper I picked up along the way and I still… Read More

Sunday Word Count #excerpt

I got to 680 before everyone woke up and it’s time to get off the computer and step outside for a while. That’s 11109 words into my holiday novella and so far, I think I may have found… Read More

Crack Open A Window

It’s a harmless game between us and I’m grateful for the distraction. I’ve never met any of Sawyer’s girlfriends before but I’ve seen pictures of them, or at least, one of them, a petite woman with a pixie haircut who Drew told me was a massage therapist and yoga instructor.

Focus, Dax. Look Up. (An Excerpt)

One of my favorite scenes in Everything She Ever Wanted is the Anaya family dinner where Dax has to face Harlow after their not-so-friendly first meeting three days earlier. And with the holiday season in full swing, it’s… Read More

It’s a Heat Wave #TeaserTuesday: Meet Addy and Jordan

“So you just got back yesterday?” I ask, hating the silence that springs between us. “Yes, and I’ve been catching up on stuff… and jet lag.” “I imagine this wasn’t anywhere near the stuff you were expecting to… Read More

Date Night, A Loving Riley Excerpt

I saw this video on my Facebook feed and was reminded of how well it fits the events behind a chapter in Loving Riley when Riley presents Ashe with one of his favorite things. Surely she didn’t restore… Read More

Happy #BookLoversDay!

For #bookloversday, here’s a wee exchange between my favorites, Ashe and Riley: While she prepared coffee, Ashe browsed through her books, pulling one out here and there to open it and flip through the pages, and always taking… Read More
