Series or Standalones That was the question posed by a member of The Story Empire earlier last week. You can read his full thoughts here– well worth your time. I’ve read many great standalone books, (Cinderella anyone?) but have to admit I enjoy stories set in a series much more. There’s a deeper connection to a) the characters, …

I thought I'd give it a whirl and share a short teaser from my upcoming contemporary romance, My Girl. This will be the third book in the Gambling Hearts series. If you've read Hold 'Em or Crazy Little Thing Called Love you'll be happy to know this is Aaron's story.
Summer Reading I don't know about you, but I find it extremely hard to concentrate on my writing in the summer. I'd much sooner be outside, in the garden, or lounging under the cherry tree reading all the amazing books on my TBR pile (which is ready to run away and hide, it's so tall! …

Spinning My Tires Lately it feels as though my writing has come to a standstill and I'm just spinning tires without going anywhere. We were talking about this at my local critique group meeting and I realized- thankfully- that at least I'm not alone with this dilemma. Some call it writer's block or writer's slump, …
