Volume 8

February is on the way out...

Good afternoon! 

Did you notice that February is almost over? I mean, I get that it’s a short month, but it went by too fast. Way too fast. Maybe that has something to do with the fact I released 2 books this month. The weeks tend to fly by when you’re releasing a new one every other week.  

Honestly, I don’t know where the time goes. I wake up at 4 a.m. every morning, write for several hours, get in some clerical work, write some more. Sprinkle in a few loads of laundry, a couple of walks with the dogs, a few meals, a glass of wine, if I’m lucky, showers, reading time, TV time, an early bedtime, and I find myself doing it all over again.

I’m certainly not complaining. When the story flows, I find the days move too fast, but I don’t mind. Thankfully, I don’t have anything on the calendar this week. Not until a vet appointment for Moscato next weekend. She has to get her allergy shot. So between now and then, I’m going to keep my nose to the grindstone and write.

Now for a funny story…

I wasn’t going to admit this, but thinking back, I find it too amusing not to. I’ll start by telling you that I take CBD to help with my anxiety. I take it in the oil form, but I also have gummies. I recently ordered a higher dosage. Because it’s full spectrum, it contains small amounts of THC. It’s such a small dose it hardly registers, but evidently, the higher dosage has more. In my defense, I bought it so I could take half the dose since I’m not a fan of the taste of the gummies. Unfortunately, I forgot that when I took 2 gummies (a full dose). I didn’t think anything of it until about 2 hours later when I realized I felt strange. I was watching TV, and I felt like I was standing outside my own body. It was weird, and I didn’t like it at all. So when dinner was ready, I sat down to eat, and I’m talking to my husband, and I blurt, “I think I’m high.” I was. And acknowledging it didn’t make me like it any better, but at least it made sense. My husband found it highly amusing of course. He teased me relentlessly. Needless to say, I’m paying attention to the dosage now.

Well, that’s all I’ve got for now. I hope you have an incredible week! Happy reading!

Much Love!


Epic Cuteness… a.k.a. my pups

It's not time to get up yet, Mom. Stay in bed. Just a little longer. A couple of hours ... maybe more. Please.
Mom, I'll just be over here pretending to take a nap while I watch you until you get finished.
You ever notice they are always napping?
Just sitting here waiting for dinner. Is it ready yet, Dad?

On Facebook? Drop by this week to hang out.

  • February 28th – surprise end of month giveaway
  • Friday, March 3, join us for the Primal Instincts Volume 3 Release Day party.

What I'm writing...

Primal Instincts is still going strong. Volume 6 will be finished by the end of the week, I’m sure of it. Did I mention there’s a twist in there? I didn’t see it coming, but it adds … something. I think you’ll enjoy it. And while there’s some good things happening, there’s a bit more suspense coming to the series as we see more of the man who’s out to punish Journey’s fathers and the Primal Alpha. If you haven’t checked out Volume 1 and 2, you should do so now. Volume 3 comes out this Friday (March 3), Volume 4 comes out on Friday, March 17, and Volume 5 on Friday, March 31. That’s 3 volumes in one month.

What I'm reading...

I’ve been in the mood for something dark and I know Anna Zaires always delivers. 

What I'm watching...


On the run from a drug deal gone bad, brilliant college dropout Mike Ross finds himself working with Harvey Specter, one of New York City's best lawyers.

I have already watched this show all the way through. I binged it daily. Couldn’t stop watching. Now that I’ve got the gist, I’m going through it again. And just so you know, it’s just as good the second time around. Maybe better. I love Harvey Specter, flaws and all.
