It’s November?!?

For the first time in a few years, I’m not actively participating in NaNoWriMo, for a few reasons. Mostly, my brain is still trying to comprehend how it is November already, as October was that insane for me. My husband had surgery at the very beginning of the month. (He’s fine.)

After Titan

  Geek & Sundry is offering a contest for new hard science fiction novels. While I’ve been primarily focused on the urban fantasy world that Yumi Matthews is a part of, I’ve been working on a first contact/space/science fiction novel as well.

Every Story is a Love Story

Check out my guest blog post over at Hart’s Romance Pulse! I talk about the importance of fanfiction in romance, and I delve into one of my favorite fandoms and how it inspired fanfiction. (Here’s a hint… It’s not the obvious choice if you know me!) I’ll be sharing more with you lovely people soon, […]

Fae, Fire & Faith

Life isn’t quite the same any more for private investigator Yumi Matthews – no matter how much she tries to pretend otherwise. Despite the cryptic new clues into her brother’s disappearance 10 years ago, she must put her investigation on hold when she gets drawn into the case of Sparrow Laurie, a missing teenaged girl. […]
